Class Picture day is on Friday, March 10th!
We are excited to announce that we will be having our Spring Class Picture day this Friday. Information will be coming home on Monday regarding this event. So you know, we will be doing the old-time everyone together class pictures on the steps in the gym like we did years ago. These pictures are much more fun than the composites you received in the Fall. Information on purchasing these photos will be in the packet and you will be able to purchase them online. We will not be doing individual student pictures on this day, only full class pictures.
Opportunity to participate in History, Science or Geography Bee
This year, we’re excited to offer students the opportunity to participate in the Utah Regional Finals for the National History Bee, National Science Bee and International Geography Bee which will be held on April 8 in the Salt Lake City area. There are 2 age groups for students at our school: elementary (4th grade and lower) and middle school (5th and 6th grade). To qualify to participate in the regional competition in Salt Lake, students take a free, online, 20-minute, 50 question multiple-choice test.
Students are encouraged to choose ONE subject area to focus on. Test preparation is done independently and students will take the online qualifying tests after school on March 20 or 21 or online.
To access practice tests you can use the following links:
To gauge student interest, please complete the online form for each student interested in participating.

White Ribbon Week!
We want to send a huge “Thanks” to everyone involved in our White Ribbon Week last week. We hope great conversations were had regarding internet safety and online citizenship.
Outside/Inside Weather Days
As a followup to the email sent up earlier, if we have an extremely cold or inclement weather day, we will post red flags on the outside of the school. This will indicate that students should come in the main doors and go down to the gym until the morning bell rings. This will occur if the temperature drops below 20 degrees or if we have major storms.
