School News, November 28-December 2, 2016
Enoch Elementary students are back in learning mode now that the Thanksgiving break is over. We hope your break was enjoyable and safe. As the Christmas season approaches, our thoughts turn to service for others. Our school recently participated in the Operation Christmas Child drive to provide gift boxes for less fortunate children. The support from Enoch families was overwhelming. Our school was able to provide Christmas boxes for 126 children around the world. It was so exciting to see the outpouring of love as classes, families, and individuals helped fill boxes with toys and goodies. The spirit of service is alive and well at our school. We thank all of the families who participated in this annual project. We also appreciate the hard work and dedication of Mrs. Marcy Christensen, who spearheads this project every year. She spends countless personal hours making sure it is a success.
We'd like to let all North Elementary parents know that our first Mini-Mall of the year is coming up on Friday, December 16th, from 1:30 to 2:30. Mini-Mall is a blast! Students in grades 2-5 (grade 1, if accompanied by an older sibling) can "rent" booths for the most fun you've ever seen...kind of like a mixture between a swap meet and a school positive behavior incentive reward! Students sell everything from time on a video game to manicures to cookies to used toys to paper airplanes. The sky's the limit (except no liquids, please). Applications for "business licenses" will be available this week, so encourage your child to get his/hers in soon. All LIME tickets earned at this event will be put in a drawing for toys and stuff just before Christmas break. Parents are welcome to come and help. You'll love the fun! More info to come.
Three Peaks Elementary
The school choir performed at the Talons Craft Show on November 19 and did a professional job singing to the crowds of shoppers. Thank you, Mrs. Cassie Walker, for preparing the choir for this amazing performance. On November 22, Three Peaks Elementary held their second annual Turkey Gobbling Contest. The grand prizewinner for K-2 was Jake Skirvin and for 3-5 was Ava Wilson. Thank you to all who participated in this fun and silly event. Thanks also to the event organizer, Amy Burton, and to Great Harvest Bread Company for donating prizes. On December 6, the 4th grade classes were invited to attend a SUU women's basketball game. The students cheered for the SUU women and enjoyed their experience very much. Thank you coaches Chris Boettcher, Robert Yonce, Dionisio Gomez, and Kim Beeston for making this trip possible. GO LADY T-BIRDS!!
Canyon View Middle
Beginning December 1-21st our school library will be hosting a reading contest. Students may come to the library before school, during lunch, or after school and sign in on a clipboard noting the time they check in and out. For every 15 minutes that they read, their name will be entered into a drawing for an electronic reader. For every 15 minutes they read on an electronic device on the Overdrive Library, they will get their name entered twice. Prizes will be awarded throughout the contest period. Please see Mrs. Edward’s in the library if you have questions. Honor Society is taking on the role of Secret Elves this holiday season! In order for every child to have a gift and feel the generosity of the community, Honor Society has stockings in the school office that need to be filled. Community members are encouraged to take a stocking, fill it with a gift card from a local area store and return it to the school office by December 20th. Please share in the spirit of the holiday!
