I heard from a friend who drove up into American Fork Canyon yesterday that there was a long line of people in cars wanting to see the many evidences of fall. Aside from gridlock traffic, how can you not love this season of the year? Crisp mornings, followed by days filled with sunshine that invite all of us to get outside and embrace the beauties of a fall day in the Utah Valley. Though the weather is better suited to afternoon, instead of morning bike rides, there are still grandchildren soccer games and yard work that give me the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful autumn weather. And there is no better place to ride my bike at this time of the year than the American Fork Canyon as the trees turn into a kaleidoscope of color!
Don’t forget that Thursday is Picture Make-up Day.
It will be a busy week with Parent/Teacher Conferences and our Book Fair. If you haven’t already done so, please get on Skyward and sign up for a conference with your child’s teacher.
Scheduling Parent Teacher Conferences through Skyward
1. Use a computer, not a smartphone.
2. Use your parent login to log in to Skyward. https://skyward.alpinedistrict.org/scripts/wsisa.dll/WService=wsEAplus/seplog01
3. If you have more than one child, select a child’s name from the ‘All Students’ drop down at the top of the page.
4. Click the ‘Teacher Conferences’ link on the left of the screen.
5. Click the link titled ‘All Conferences’.
6. Click the ‘Select a Time’ link under the text ‘Not Yet Scheduled’.
7 Find a date and time that works for you and click on the “Select’ link to the right. If the ‘Select’ button doesn’t work, try a different web browser.
8. Click ‘Save’ to confirm that date and time — Your conference is now scheduled.
9. Repeat steps 3-8 to schedule appointments for additional children.
When you come to Parent/Teacher Conferences, we encourage you to come visit our Book Fair. We are grateful to parents Vivian Hsiao and Chelsea Hertig for creating a winter wonderland as you enter our library and Book Fair because of course “It is snow fun to read!”
Also, when you are in the school for conferences, please swing by the Lost and Found near the gym entrance to see if you can reclaim any lost items that belong to your student.
I have attached the agenda for our October 10 School Community Council Meeting, 9:30 – 10:30 am in the Conference Room. Any parent is welcome to attend.
There is also an attached flyer for the Lone Peak Youth Wrestling Club. Tracy Wallace, the husband of second grade teacher, Maureen Wallace, is the head wrestling coach at LPHS and also oversees the Youth Wrestling Club.
