Three cheers for our volunteers! We want to thank the many volunteers who help at South Elementary! Our PTA headed by Danielle DeMille has spent many hours working to provide fun, educational opportunities for our students as well as sponsoring fundraising events that have provided ChromeBooks and other classroom materials. Volunteer parents and grandparents provide group and individual help in our classrooms. Many of them come regularly each week, which is appreciated by the teachers and students in each class. South Elementary volunteers have provided thousands of hours of service. One special lady, Verona Cole, sews blankets for students not only at South, but for other schools in the Iron County School District. She has sewn hundreds of beautiful blankets that have brought smiles and warmth to students. Thank you to all who help our school.
CANYON VIEW HIGH SCHOOL
Each month Canyon View High Schools Faculty chooses two students from each grade to be recognized as our Falcons’ Finest. These youth have set themselves apart by being excellent citizens students. They help CVHS be a better community. Who needs the “luck of the Irish” when we have the following March Falcons' Finest: Tiffany Pedersen & Jared Winn (9th grade), Jacie Parry & Ashlyn Wheelwright (10th grade), Cristal Elias & CJ Shumway (11th grade), and Kassie Langford & Rachel Lusk (12th grade). They each have received a nice certificate and movie gift card to Fiddler’s 6 Theater. Way to go!

IRON SPRINGS ELEMENTARY
4th grade students from Iron Springs attended the annual water fair along with other 4th graders in Iron County School District. At the water fair students learned how to conserve water and how their actions affect the world we live in today. They also learned about the water cycle, which is awesome because it ties right along with our 4th grade core curriculum. The 4th grade had a blast and can’t wait to attend next year!
Parowan Elementary is excited to welcome in-coming Kindergartners for the school year 2017-2018. Our kindergarten registration will be Thursday, March 30th from noon to 3:00. Any child living in Parowan’s boundaries that will be 5 years old before September 1st of this year is welcome. Have current immunization records and a valid birth certificate with you when you come. We can’t wait to have these new students here! Parowan also had their annual McDonald’s night fundraiser on Monday, March 20th. There was a ton of support and the school PTO would like to thank all of those who came out in support of our school!
North Elementary would like to thank all those who made our 3rd and 4th grade science fairs so successful this week. We know that students and parents worked hard on their projects! We'd like to express sincere appreciation to our friends at SUU's College of Science and Engineering for once again providing our judges for these special events. It's not easy trying to narrow down dozens of entries to three winners for each category! On a separate note, parents are reminded that our kindergarten through second graders will be doing their science fair projects as a class. The projects will be displayed at our Spring STEAM Education Night on May 1st, from 5:30 to 7:30. Please join us!
