Hobble Creek Elementary is the recipient of a grant from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums and the National Endowment for the Arts. During the week of October 22-26, storyteller Lora Schmidt worked with the third grade classes developing a three act play about the early days in our community. The stories originated from a book called Mapleton A Collection of Folks' Tales compiled by Erik Brinkerhoff and Keenan Cummings as an english class assignment. Erik interviewed his grandparents and their colleagues some of whom have now passed away.

Kindergarten students were visited by a fire fighter. They were told about avoiding fires, not playing with matches. If you are in a fire you should crawl to saftey to avoid breathing smoke. If fire is on you: stop, drop and roll. He told the students that fire fighters are your friend and you should run to them not away from them. He demonstrated how he can dress in his protective clothes very quickly.
