Iron Springs Elementary
Iron Springs held their annual math-a-thon. Let’s just say this is a favorite time of year for our school! Each year we hold the math-a-thon to raise money for technology in our school. We are so thankful for the many people that pledged and supported our students. This year to celebrate the pledges we turned Principal Jenkins into a PIZZA! Together with sponsors, parents, grandparents, the community etc. we raised $22,021.79. We want to thank those who helped us raise this money. A special thanks to Holt Dairy, EEAP, Cedar View Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Nate Call, Caleb Rees, Safari Hospitality, High Standard Construction, Dan Roberts and Judy Lindsay at Coldwell Banker, Wilson & Whetten, Township Pharmacy, Cedar City Prints and more! We can’t wait to use technology!
Our third grade had such a great time at Farm Day Monday! Thanks so much to everyone that makes it possible! Also, we are very proud of our fourth grade students that will be moving on in the calculator challenge! Jens Neilson, Brandon Campos, and Madeline Cluff! We can't wait to see how all the students do! Good luck to everyone participating!
Another busy week has gone by at South Elementary. Each second grade class had baby chicks in their classrooms that the students were able to watch hatch. Watching the new baby chicks come out of their shells was a great learning experience. The students also liked observing the new baby chicks adapt to their new environment. Third graders attended the annual Farm Field Day at the Diamond Z Arena. Students were able to learn first hand some of the different types of issues that farmers deal with in growing crops and raising farm animals. The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company presented a dance assembly to our students illustrating the art of contemporary dance. The PTA is sponsoring a Color Run to raise money for new Chromebooks.

We will be having our annual Enoch Elementary Arts Family Night on Monday, April 10 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. We will have art on display, a family art activity, literacy training for families, and our choir will perform at 6:00 p.m. Please join us for a fun night with the arts. Our students have worked so hard to perfect their art talents over the past year. The growth and progression has been amazing to watch. We appreciate Mrs. Kirsten Anderson, our arts teacher. We would like to congratulate Ethan Hallows for being the winning representative for the Cedar/Beaver Water District in the Utah Division of Water Resources annual water poster contest. This win is quite an honor and we are pleased to have Ethan represent our school. End of year testing is in full swing and teachers are very appreciative of excellent attendance. Eating a good hearty breakfast is very important for testing success.
North Elementary is excited to announce two new teachers will be joining us next year. We are welcoming Mrs. Kim Sauceda (formerly of East Elementary) and Mrs. Sarah Hulet (formerly of CVMS) to our fourth grade team. While we are sad to lose Mr. Sahagun (who will be accepting a position at South Elementary) we are delighted to have Sarah and Kim. They are both well-known throughout the district as experienced, enthusiastic, masterful teachers who are especially gifted in science instruction. Just right for our STEAM school!

Three Peaks Elementary
Three Peaks Elementary and North Elementary are proud to present the play, "Seussical, the Musical, Jr." This play combines the antics of Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and other favorite Dr. Seuss characters who spring to life onstage in a fantastical musical extravaganza. Students will perform the play on April 6 at 9:45 am in the Three Peaks Elementary gym, 1:30 pm at North Elementary, and again at Canyon View High School at 6:00 pm. Thank you to Mrs. Cassie Walker, Mr. Lorne Kelly, Mrs. Melissa Leavitt, and Mrs Kyrsten Harper who have spent countless hours directing this play.

CVMS library will be holding another contest beginning April 3rd. In the library, students will need to pick up and fill out a book review and rating form when they are through reading a book. The book reviews forms will be entered into a drawing for prizes. From these book reviews, the library will comprise a list for students to find a read that interests them. The contest will go throughout the whole month of April.
