As the bell rang to welcome students back to Wilson School this fall students were welcomed by a new principal, Mr. Fluckiger (Flew-key-gur). When asked about Mr. Fluckiger, a smile appears on the students' faces. “He’s Awesome!” one student replies. Another says, “He is really smart and nice!” Several students commented that he always seems happy. Mr. Fluckiger most recently taught fifth-grade at Hobble Creek Elementary in Mapleton. He has also taught fifth-grade at Art City Elementary in Springville, and fourth-grade at Jefferson Elementary in Rigby Idaho.
Mrs. Litster's class from Wilson Elementary school performed their Mother Goose mystery play for the kindergarten and first gade classes. Mother Goose and her "cool" assistant tried to solve the mystery of all the missing items in Mother Goose Land! Everyone in the play lost something they needed because someone else had borrowed it without permission.
We made decorations for the Christmas tree at Zion’s bank. First we made little glass balls with paint I them. Then we made gingerbread men in art class. Then we wrapped toilet paper rolls and tied string to them. On Friday, Dec. 3rd, we went to Zion’s bank and sang the song I Believe. When we were done singing we had cookies.

We have been learning about other countries and how they celebrate Christmas. We learned about Egypt from Mr. Byington. When girls get married they wear very heavy bridal clothes. They use hieroglyphic writing. They drive really crazy. If they stick their arm out the window, it may get smashed by another car.

The 4th grade students at Wilson Elementary got a special treat this year, a field trip to our State Capitol. The field trip was arranged and hosted by our legislative representative Patrick Painter and was a fun educational and experience for the students, teachers and parent helpers who attended. The children were able to learn the process of presenting a bill and passing laws while sitting in the seats of the House of Representatives! Next was a tour of the capitol building where the kids learned the history of the building as well as changes made since the re-modeling of the capitol.
