Sixth-graders at Orchard Hills Elementary spent a beautiful morning at Santaquin Cemetery.  Students learned about the inspiring military monument that honors our community and early pioneers that settled this town.  Students gained an appreciation for the art and poetry represented on the headstones and made a rubbing to mount and hang in the school hallway.  How to show respect for others and property was also an important part of the day's agenda.  The students were pleasantly surprised how many things can be learned at the cemetery.
