I hope you all had an enjoyable Easter! Because of the rainy forecast on Easter Sunday, we had our four local grandchildren and their parents over to our home for a Saturday Easter Egg Hunt. Laura and I hid 40 plastic Easter eggs, 20 each, some containing candy, others candy and money, around our yard. The grandchildren had fun hunting for and finding the eggs, but only 37 were found, and I don’t remember where I hid the missing eggs, so Papa will have fun discovering Easter eggs as he does his spring yard work in future days and weeks.
I biked Mill Creek and Emigration Canyons on Saturday with 20 other members of the bike team I ride with. Both canyons were full of people biking, hiking or driving, taking advantage of a wonderful Spring day. What a beautiful part of the world we live in!
Our PTA and parent volunteers did an amazing job of recognizing our staff last week! The Alpine Elementary faculty realizes how fortunate we are to have such tremendous parent support. The meals, treats, gifts, flowers and kind notes are appreciated so much by our hard-working staff. A huge shout out to Meredith Rosenvall who headed up the Staff Appreciation Week activities, and thanks to the many other parents who came into the school to recognize staff members.
Speaking of parent volunteers, I am pleased to announce that one of our longtime PTA members, Tawnya Bearss, has been recognized by the Utah PTA as the winner of the Spirit of PTA Award. The fact that Tawnya is being honored as a statewide winner is very fitting as her youngest child is a 6th grader, and after many years of service on our PTA, including serving as PTA president, Tawnya will be recognized at an awards dinner on Tuesday night for her many years of devoted service to the children at Alpine Elementary. Congratulations Tawnya!
Our second graders will be performing Glow on April 24 in the gymnasium at the following times:
Mrs. Wallace 5:00 pm
Mrs. Bailey 5:45 pm
Mrs. Blodgett 6:30 pm
Ms. Bennett 7:15 pm
Parents can turn in Teacher Request Forms to the main office April 29 – May 3. I will be sending out another email this week detailing the staff changes that are occurring next year and attaching the Teacher Request Form.
Please read the attachment for our monthly Box Top update.
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
