Thank you so much for meeting with us last week. You have wonderful children, and we think you are pretty great parents as well. We have reached the end of 1st term. Wow!! All missing work is due Friday in order to earn Worker’s Holiday. Please go to PowerSchool and check your child’s grades. We have sent category totals with all missing assignments listed on it(if your child has anything missing). Worker’s Holiday will be on Monday, Oct. 16. We will have a Read-A-Thon in the afternoon. Students may wear PJ’s, if they would like and bring a blanket or pillow, a few healthy snacks (NO drinks), and of course a book or books to READ. Students not earning the activity will work in another room to work on missing assignments.
Picture retakes will be tomorrow, Oct. 12.
You are invited to come have a BLAST with us as we explode our volcanoes next Tues., at 2:30 on the south playground. Please do NOT park in the bus loading zone. You may park on 500 S. behind the playground, or in the parking lot. Exploded volcanoes may not come back in the school, so students need to take them home or take them around to the dumpster at the north end of the school.
We are excited that the DARE program will begin again in Cedar City. Our students will have Officer Taylor come in to teach ten lessons to each class during the next few months. Our first lesson will be next Friday, Oct. 20. He will come each Friday until Thanksgiving, and then he will come on Mondays for the remaining five lessons.
Remember that we do not have school Mon., Oct. 23.
Reflections entries are due on Fri., Nov. 3. You can get rules and entry forms at http://www.utahpta.org/reflections. The entry must include the “artist’s statement”. The theme is “Within Reach”.
We will be singing at the Veteran’s Memorial on Fri., Nov. 10. More information will be sent in our Nov. 1 newsletter.
The fifth grade Maturation Programs will be on Tues., Nov. 21 @ 2:00. The boys are in the gym and the girls are in the library. We hope that a parent will be able to attend with each child, however a child may attend without a parent. We DO need a permission slip returned in order for your child to attend. Most of you signed that at our conferences.
Please feel welcome to email, call, or come in anytime with your concerns. The next newsletter will be posted on Wed., Nov.1.
Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Little, & Mrs. Payne
