Leftover Halloween candy, fall leaves removed from my lawn, all my favorite football teams victorious on Saturday, great participation in the Sunday School class I taught, and my cold is finally gone. Now that is a great weekend!
November has arrived! And sadly, at least in my opinion, the turning of the calendar means we are deluged with Christmas advertisements in all media forms weeks before sitting down for our Thanksgiving meals.
There will be a School Community Council meeting Thursday, November 7, 9:30 – 10:30 am in our Conference Room. The agenda is attached. All parents are welcome to attend.
All Alpine Elementary students who submitted Reflections Art entries will be recognized at our school Reflections Gala, 7:00 – 8:00 pm, Thursday, November 7 in the gym. Unfortunately, there was some miscommunication about due dates, and not all entries were judged in time to proceed to the Council level; consequently, none of our students will have Reflection entries advancing to the Lone Peak Council level.
Alpine Elementary will be participating in a Blanket Drive for the homeless along the Wasatch Front, November 4 – 18. Soul Food USA, a non-profit organization, is working to help keep people warm and provide dignity for those experiencing homelessness. Timberline Middle School is also participating in this Blanket Drive.
Any blankets donated need to be new and adult size and can be of any color or design. Please no homemade or baby blankets. Blankets can still be in store packaging when put in the donation box that will be in front of our main office November 4 – 18. On December 22, Soul Food USA will be handing out the donated blankets to the homeless at their Christmas Chili Party in Salt Lake City. If you have questions, contact Tres Hatch, the Blanket Drive Coordinator, 801-953-4276,
