Another Halloween Gone
Can you believe we have turned the calendar to November? We enjoyed bringing back our long-standing tradition of a Halloween Parade on Friday, October 29. It was fun to see the students in their different costumes. I learned that a lot of our students don’t know who Colonel Sanders is, but I appreciate Martha Hadlock and Sheri Davis, our office secretaries, being good sports and joining the Colonel in some very hot chicken costumes.

Parking During Drop-off and Pick-up Times
We have received some complaints about how parents are parking around the school during drop-off and pick-up times. Please do not get out of your vehicle unless you are parked in a designated parking area. Safety of students during these drop off and pick up times is our number one priority. We occasionally have a Lone Peak police officer at the school when students arrive or are dismissed, but on most days we rely on the common courtesy that adults need to display when dropping off or picking up their students. Please be considerate of others during these transition times!

Outside the Principal’s Office
What a beautiful fall weekend we had! Saturday was the best! I enjoyed a morning bike ride up Suncrest where the view of the valley and Utah Lake are breathtaking. We had a late afternoon family gathering at our daughter’s house in Saratoga Springs followed by an army of grandchildren going trick-or-treating in a neighborhood that has so many young children it looked like Disneyland. And then to culminate the day, a trip to LaVell Edwards Stadium to watch an exciting high scoring football game, with the Cougs prevailing 66 – 49 over their former coach Bronco Mendenhall and his University of Virginia team. The game reminded me of the type of high scoring shootouts I observed when I was a student at BYU 1979 – 1982. I didn’t get home from the game until 1:00 am, but there was nothing but memories of a day well-lived as I drifted off to sleep.
Have a wonderful week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
