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 SCC
Thanks to those who attended our last SCC meeting. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, November 8th at 9:30 in the faculty room.
From the PTA
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 19th.
Red Ribbon Week
Our students and staff will be participating in our annual Red Ribbon Week, October 18 – 21. We are grateful to one of our parents, Andrew Young, and the fantastic videos he produces that our students will watch each day this week. The focus of the week is for students to learn how to say no to drugs and alcohol. Ask your students what they learned at school each day this week. The most powerful conversations about making safe and correct choices about drugs and alcohol happen at home. Tuesday 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.
We are so excited for the great family fun nights our PTA is putting together. We are having Jason Fun, magician extraordinaire, come perform for us on October 20th at 6:30 PM. This is a free event for the entire family. Please see the attached flyer and come enjoy a magical night.
Kona Ice Day
Our first spirit day of the year will be October 21st from 3:15-5:15 PM. Come grab Kona Ice right in front of the school. A portion of your purchase will come back to the PTA and will be used for field trips. Field trips are currently funded mostly by the $25 donations teachers ask for at the beginning of the year. This will be a way to help fund more field trips for the students throughout the year. Come grab your Kona Ice right as school gets out or come back a little later. If it is really cold that day (below 50 degrees), they will be serving hot cocoa and hot apple cider. Prices are included in the flyer below.
Community Bond Presentation
If you have any questions about the upcoming school district bond or you want to learn more about it, please feel free to attend one of the upcoming education sessions. The closest one to us will be held October 18th at 6:30 PM at American Fork High School in the auditorium.
Our next PTA meeting is October 25th at 9:30 AM.
