Our PTA has planned a great Internet Safety Week (formerly known as White Ribbon Week) for students and staff. We are excited to have well-known motivational speaker, Hank Smith, speak to our students about the importance of kindness on Tuesday. And we will have two NetSmartz assemblies on Wednesday. I have attached the Internet Safety Week plan that our PTA has developed, which includes some At-Home Challenges for students and parents.

After weeks of riding the stationary bike in the gym, it was nice to bike Snow Canyon near St. George last Thursday afternoon. As I was pedaling out of the park, and the steepest part of the ride, toward Highway 18, the road from St. George to Veyo, I heard someone behind me say, “To your left.” And two gentlemen, I’m guessing in their 70’s, easily passed me as they were “pedaling” their electric bikes up the steep incline. A bit of a blow to my pride, but not enough that I want to trade in my road bike for an electric bike.
I debated internally whether to share the following, but I imagine the news will eventually get out somehow. At the statewide Utah Association of Elementary School Principals (UAESP) Conference that I attended in St. George last week, I was recognized as the state of Utah Elementary Principal Mentor of the Year. To be voted by my elementary principal peers as the school district honoree was recognition enough for me, but to win the statewide award was very humbling and unexpected.
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
Dave Perdue, Principal

Last Thursday, the snow, wind and low temperature resulted in a day of no outside recess. The sensation of cabin fever sets in, nerves are frayed, it is more difficult to focus on the desired learning objectives, each minute of the day seems longer and there is more attention focused on the clock, and many are “climbing the walls.” Not to mention the fact that the kids also want to go outside:)
Mrs. Orgill’s class was January’s Box Top winner with 126 box tops!  The 4th graders in Mrs. Orgill’s class will get a pizza party, which is generously donated by Eckes Paving!

Anyone else besides me starting to get Spring Fever? I go to the gym almost daily to exercise, but the stationary bike is not the same as riding my bike in American Fork Canyon or other parts of the Utah Valley. Certainly, the recent snowfall is needed to increase the snowpack, fill up reservoirs, and meet the demand of summer water needs along the Wasatch Front, but I am anxious to bike the Alpine Loop as winter turns into spring.
Each year, as part of my evaluation process, I survey teachers, parents and one grade level (5th grade this year) of students. I have attached the results of the recent surveys.
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
Dave Perdue, Principal
