Our Internet Safety Week was a great success! The Hank Smith and NetSmartz assemblies provided our students with lot of great information about how to make good choices with electronic devices and Social Media. I hope parents were able to have some discussions at home with their children about the power, both positive and negative, of Social Media, and how screen time on electronic devices can be monitored at home. We appreciate all our PTA did to organize Internet Safety Week!
There will be a School Community Council meeting at 9:30 am on Tuesday, February 25. The SCC meeting agenda is attached and all parents are welcome to attend:

Saturday night was a great night to be a BYU basketball fan as the Cougs defeated on Senior Night, and the last home game of the year, the number-two ranked team in the country, Gonzaga. Four of our children are BYU grads, and the other is a BYU-Idaho graduate. And of course, our children grew up seeing and hearing me being an enthusiastic BYU supporter for the past 40 years. That family culture was evident Saturday night during the game as we, minus the BYU-I grad, were all texting each other about the ebb and flows of the game. We had a son at the game, and children in Beaverton, Oregon, Eagle Mountain, and Rapid City, SD all cheering on the Cougars while communicating with each other electronically. Laura and I were babysitting our 18-month granddaughter (fortunately she was asleep in her crib for most of the game) as her parents went to the game. The exciting game and victory, combined with the family texts, made for a fun Saturday night. But I am guessing there were many of you who like our one daughter and daughter-in-law, have no interest in BYU sports whatsoever, and find other things to do with your time on a Saturday night.
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
Dave Perdue, Principal
