Reflections-See below for details
I would just like to encourage you to help your students with a Reflection entry. Hopefully, you have all noticed a reduction in the homework for your students. One benefit that can be had with this homework policy is that you might have a bit more time to do things like a Reflection entry. I know life is busy but the Reflections program is something that your children remember for years to come. Please remember that entries are due by October 13th.
Red Ribbon Week Coming Up
We have our annual Red Ribbon Week coming up Oct 18-21. I had some parents ask to have a “heads-up” on when the dress up days will be. So, there will be more information coming but we wanted to let you know that on Tuesday of that week it will be hat day, Wednesday will be crazy hair day, Thursday will be sports jersey day, and Friday will be wear red or camo day. Hope that helps those who wanted to know early.
From the Library
Battle of the Books Information
If you ordered a Battle of the Books t-shirt for your student, please pay the $7/shirt cost as soon as possible on myschoolfees.com. Thanks to those who have already paid 🙂 Payment deadline is October 21st.
We’re so excited for the Battle of the Books competition this year and have more students participating than ever before! It’s going to be a great year of reading!
Students who have read at least three books on their reading list by December will be invited to a pizza party in the library. Thanks for encouraging your students to read every day. We want to order A LOT of pizza for our readers 🙂

From the PTA
Running Club is continuing this week! It will take place during Monday and Friday morning recess and Wednesday afternoon recess. Remember to wear tennis shoes for those kids wanting to participate. Prizes will be given out to the kids who reach their running milestones.
Reflections is a national PTA program and it gives students the chance to submit art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts. The theme for this year is Show your Voice! Submissions need to be sent electronically here: https://www.utahpta.org/ref (this is also where instructions and rules are found) by October 13th.
Our next PTA meeting is Oct 25th from 9:30-10:30 AM in the teacher’s lounge. We would love to have you there!
At this meeting, we will be voting on our new PTA bylaws. The proposed bylaws are posted in the teacher’s lounge. If you have any concerns or issues with the bylaws, please email [email protected]
From the Lunchroom
A reminder to everyone to please make sure your student(s) have money in their lunch accounts. If you need help with this, you can simply log on to mypaymentsplus.com and register.

Also, our kitchen can accept cash or checks for meal payments, but not credit cards. If you have any questions or may need help, please do not hesitate to contact the main office at 801-610-8700.
