How was your Fall Break? I hope you found time to enjoy quality time with family and friends.
Laura and I, along with a good portion of the rest of the state of Utah, traveled to St. George for our Fall Break. My wife and I are officially senior citizens (love the Senior movie discount), but if you are a senior citizen and want to boost your ego and feel young, go to St. George during the Huntsman Senior Games, go eat in a restaurant with a lot of Senior Games participants, and you will walk away with a little spring in your step and a smile on your face saying, “We aren’t doing too bad for ourselves as senior citizens!”
We enjoyed the warmer weather, biked Snow Canyon a couple of times and watched “Cinderella” at Tuacahn. When we pulled out of St. George on Sunday morning it was raining, so the weather cooperated for all of our outdoor activities. On one of my early morning bike rides, who do I pass running on the Red Hills Parkway trail but our PTA president, Erica Hartshorn! We had a nice little chat and laughed at running into each other on the trail. Literally for Erica who runs at a very fast pace. Glad I was on my bike because I certainly can’t run that fast!
It is Red Ribbon Week! The school focus this week will be for our students to be heroes and make good choices about drugs and alcohol.
Tuesday—Hat Day
Wednesday—Crazy Hair Day
Thursday—Jersey Day
Friday—Wear Red or Camo Day
Students will be watching videos throughout the week that correlate with the different dress-up days. Here are the videos that students will be watching on Tuesday and Wednesday. We are grateful to parent, Andrew Young, for all the time and effort that he has put into organizing Red Ribbon Week and for producing the videos!
Each class will be making a “Hero Promise Poster” in order to receive their Hero Bracelets.
Thank you to those of you that came in last week to reclaim items from our Lost and Found. Our custodian, Mike Carter, will be bagging up the Lost and Found items and putting the bags in storage. You are welcome to come rummage through the bags, but we need to clean out our Lost and Found area.
I have attached a flyer for the Lone Peak Youth Wrestling Program.
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
