A Visit to the State Capitol

Submitted by dorie.thatcher on Fri, 10/07/2016 - 14:04

100 years ago, in October of 1916, Utah's State Capitol was dedicated.  Students from across the state were invited to tour the Capitol to take part in the Centennial Celebration.  Salem Elementary fourth and fifth-graders accepted the invitation and made their way to Salt Lake City.  

As arriving in Salt Lake City, the bus turned the corner to approach the building. Students were in awe with the magnificent view before them, the State Capitol.  Excitement then filled the bus and students were anxious to begin their tour.

Fourth graders showed up to school last Friday in their best dress anticipating the opportunity to attend a concert by the Utah Symphony Orhestra at Maple Mountain High School.  As students walked into the auditorium they were excited to see all the instruments and hear the musicians warming up.  During the concert students enjoyed familiar tunes, such as that from Sleeping Beauty, and participated in learning and clapping different beats per measure.  Salem Elementary students were some of the most well behaved students during the concert, not to mention the best looking.
