Kindness Challenge WINNERS!!
The Kindness Challenge was an initiative to help flood the school with kindness and prevent issues before they arise. We were challenged to complete classroom activities focusing on kindness and reflections to help us promote positive mindsets in our school. We worked on handling bully situations and included a song that helped everyone remember to say something and stop it before the action becomes out of hand.
Check out our AMAZING students showing how to "Be Kind" and OWNING IT!!
The first competition is happening next week and our students have been reading and working very hard to prepare for it. To make these battles happen, WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! Help us get students to the appropriate rooms as well as asking the questions for the books they have been reading (questions & answers will be provided).
You will need to arrive at 8:30 A.M. for a one-time training. The actual Battles will start at exactly 9:00 A.M. and should go until about 11 A.M. THANK YOU so very much for helping us make this Battle of the Books competition a great experience for our students!

We need volunteers for the Junior Achievement Program in each class. It's a great program and the kids enjoy having someone new instruct them invaluable concepts. Classes learn about communities, economies, the difference between needs and wants, etc: Junior Achievement of Utah
The program involves sharing five or six 30 minute lessons with a class. The coordinator is waiting for us to finalize all our volunteers so she can schedule our training. She will come to our school, explain the lessons & provide all needed materials. If there is no volunteer for your child's class, that class will simply not be able to participate.
