School News, November 7-11, 2016
South Elementary 3rd-5th graders are busy reading their books for Battle of the Books. 2nd grades have been learning about Greek Myths and 5th graders are writing poetry. The students have also enjoyed the Marvin and Jesse plays directed by, Mrs. Jill Bassett, our school counselor, and featuring Principal Jerry Oldroyd and some of our very talented faculty. The skits center around character education, which promotes values and builds unity within the school.
North Elementary has changed the way we administer our fluoride swish program. If you have signed your child up for the important weekly service, please remind him/her to go directly to the lunchroom on Thursdays before school to receive his/her treatment. Our friendly SUU volunteers (awesome pre-dent students!) will have them quickly “swish” and get right to class. If your child eats school breakfast, please remind him/her to eat BEFORE s/he gets the fluoride. The swish program is open for business on Thursday mornings from 8:30 to 8:50. Please ensure your child arrives on time! Speaking of that, we are implementing a new program to have EVERY student arrive every day on time. Ask your child about his/her classroom’s ice cream party incentive!
Three Peaks Elementary
The second and third grade classes will enjoy a trip to the Heritage Center on November 18. They will enjoy listening to the Eroico Trio Concert. Thanksgiving is the time of year we reflect on the many things for which we are thankful. Three Peaks Elementary wants to take this opportunity to share just a few with you. We are thankful for our students who come to school every day and are ready to learn - they give us all a daily reminder of what is important and why we are here. We are thankful for the teachers, the office manager, the school nurse, the school counselor, the bus drivers, the lunchroom manager and cooks, the support staff, and the custodians who really care about student achievement and have the best interests of our students at heart. We are also thankful for our volunteers who enthusiastically contribute so much to our school. Most importantly, we are thankful for the support of the parents in creating an outstanding partnership for our students and for continuing to share their most valuable possession with us. Please remember that school will not be held November 23-27, 2016. We would like to wish all of you and your families a happy, healthy and relaxing Thanksgiving season!
