I dare you! To tell me Ascent doesn’t have the cutest first graders in the whole wide world! Mrs. Millers First Grade (Lehi) celebrated the 100th day of school on 2/21/2021. This year's celebration was even more special as Ascent was able to keep all four in-person campuses open, running a normal daily schedule, throughout the 20-21 school year. We owe that accomplishment to our teachers, students, and parents who all worked to keep our students safe and learning all year. Thank you Mrs. Miller this 100 days of school is certainly a day to remember and celebrate! Do you want to view more of the celebration check out this link.




Mrs. Miller's Class

Mrs. Richardson 2nd Grade (Online) finished up the month of March with research about Landforms. They presented their research in their favorite expression style. We love seeing SEM in Action!



Nose Picture

Mrs. Sorenson’s First Grade (West Valley) shared two of their final projects with us. The picture on the left was taken after a cross-campus collaboration. Students learned about friendship, accepting others, and what they would like if they could change their nose. What do you think if you had to have a different nose what animal nose would you choose? The picture on the right was taken while students participated in a Reader’s Theater all about a little ant.

Solar Ovens


We love when our teachers bring learning to life. Mrs. Chapple’s Fourth Grade (West Jordan) created solar ovens while learning about heat and energy. Students were rewarded on this bright sunny day with a smore cooked by the sun.

Did you know that each of Ascent’s campuses has a teacher that brings music and art to life? Mrs. Fawcett (Farmington) continued to teach ukulele in music class throughout 20-21. She used proper sanitization and safety procedures. In addition to ukulele students used boomwhackers to learn about melody and harmony.  Students were able to use fun musical instruments safely and the kids loved it! I call that thriving!

2nd Grade Lehi


Second Grade (Lehi) had a Market Day! Students learned about economics, creating their own business, and making goods to sell at the market. They all agreed that this was “the best day ever!” It was great practice with money counting as well. Second grade definitely thrived!

“Bubbles, bubbles, here and there,

Blow up, blow up, in the air!

Blowing bubbles is such fun!

Blowing bubbles one by one.”


Mrs. Arnold’s 3rd ​grade (Farmington) would definitely agree that hands-on Science is the best way to learn.
