Many of our students have been participating in the Storytelling Contest over the past few weeks. Last week, two students were selected by adult judges to move forward to the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival. The lower grade winner was second grader, Gage Sterzer, and the upper grade winner was fifth grader, Maggie Myers. The runner-up participants were third grader, Hattie Jones, and fourth grader Jane Rasmussen. Congratulations to all of our students who shared a story in the competition!

Outside the Principal’s Office
March roars in like a lion,
The wind so cold,
It seems to pierce.
The month rolls on
And Spring draws near,
And March goes out
Like a lamb so dear.
50-degree temperatures on February 29 and snow and cold wind on March 1 reminded me of this oft-repeated poem, and our Utah Valley weather. I was able to bike from our home in Cedar Hills to Vivian Park on Saturday afternoon. Just an FYI to you hikers and bikers, still quite a bit of snow and ice on the Provo River Canyon Trail from Bridal Veil Falls up to Vivian Park. I needed to get on Highway 89 for that portion of the ride.
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
