The events send a powerful message that millions more kids need quality afterschool programs.

Eight-grade US History classes recently went to UVU and saw the Roots of Knowledge exhibit. 

The exhibit includes numerous stained-glass windows featuring important events, places, people, throughout history.  The windows convey how these historical elements have influenced our education, knowledge, and learning. 

Students were able to look through the windows and make connections to what they having been learning in class as well as understand how knowledge throughout history influences their daily lives today and into the future.
