Yesterday was our annual field trip to the local pumpkin patch. The children really enjoy seeing the animals in the petting zoo, playing in the shelled feed corn and taking a pumpkin home. There are so many sensory experiences: the texture of animal fur, the dryness of the cornstalks and hay, and the smooth vegetables. Allowing children to run, climb and jump gives them the opportunity to develop gross motor skills.
All are invited to the #savethekids free Parent Education Night sponsored by Nebo School District on November 5, 2018, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Springville High auditorium at 1205 East 900 South in Springville, Utah.

- Protecting and cultivating our children's self worth,
- Devising a sensible family use of device plan.
Some fun new things are happening this year thanks to the Trust Lands Allotment received by Legacy School. In addition to the direction of our wonderful volleyball coach, Maria Yazzie, students are excited about using the embroidery and appliqué machine in Textile Design classes. Students are amazed at the new things that they are learning to make in Culinary Arts because of the small appliances, utensils, and pans that our Trust Lands money allowed us to purchase. Numerous healthy lifestyle items were purchased to help students learn how to adjust their lifestyles to be healthier. Thes

We had the opportunity last week for an enrichment activity to enjoy the beautiful fall colors and nice weather by hiking Big Springs Hollow Trail in Provo Canyon. A small creek crossed the trail in several places. A yummy picnic lunch was ready after the hike. Thanks to Mrs. Boothe, Sharon and Cindy for all their hard work arranging transportation, supplying baby carriers and preparing the meal! It was a great hike for all ages.
