T- Shirts orders that were placed by the October 15th deadline, will be distributed at the end of the month. We will offer a second chance to order in January. 

Box Tops

Our classroom Box Tops competition will end Oct. 27th.  So far we have collected a lot of Box Tops.  Keep them coming.  The top three classrooms will get an extra recess.  Last year we raised over $600 from Box Tops.  It’s a super easy way to get free money to help our school.

Healthy Living Assembly

The students enjoyed a great assembly with the Utah Swim and Dive team on October 12. Thanks to Shriner's Hospital, all students left with a balloon to remind them of the ideas for healthy living that were shared at the assembly.  Look for chalk art during the week of October 24.
