Some members of my family and I headed southeast of the Utah Valley for a weekend getaway. There was one point in the trip, the conclusion of an event we were watching, that was particularly enjoyable. I have attached some photos. I went to a similar family gathering a little closer to home on August 29. and for some reason, my friends dressed in red enjoyed that experience more than me. Interesting how the trips we take in life can cause such contrasting emotions.
School pictures are on Thursday, September 12. Your students should have brought home a flyer explaining the different photo options.
If you want to help support our school, take your family to the Chick-Fil-A in Lehi, not American Fork, tonight for dinner, 5:00 – 8:00 pm. A percentage of the total sales will go to Alpine Elementary.
Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Aitchison, shared a few of the comments her kindergartners have shared with her in the first two-weeks of school. If I ever need a pick-me-up and something to smile about, I go spend some time in a kindergarten classroom.
“Teacher did you know I’m going to Chinese Inaversion next year?”
“If your hands are cold then you’re turning into a Grandma.”
“Teacher what’s up with that shirt you’re wearing?”
“My birthday is in the summer…a long time away. I don’t know why my mom did that.”
“Do you know why I’m not allergic to dogs? Because they are so fluffy and cute!”
Bright Ideas is an extra-curricular theme-based program open to all interested elementary students. This year’s theme is Fact vs. Fiction focusing on different branches of STEAM education: science, technology, engineering, art and math. I have attached a flyer giving you more information.
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
