Construction Projects Provide Opportunity for Learning

Page Battle of the Books Overall Champion Crowned

With dramatic “Survivor” music playing in the background, 18 Page Elementary classroom champions stepped up the microphone on the high school auditorium stage. In front of all their classmates and some family members, the contestants answered detailed questions about books they read.

Teens Deliver Strong Message to Younger Students

Battle of the Books is on again this year at Page Elementary, but without the guiding hand and thoughtful questions from the person who passionately introduced and organized the program at Page more than 10 years ago.

Page Students Research Native American Tribes

A history project gave Page fifth-graders a better understanding of some of the Native American tribes, how they lived, what they ate, their religion and beliefs, clothing, art and the different roles within the tribe.
