Dear Eagles,

The weather has not been cooperative!  Sadly, we are going to postpone our fun school carnival that was scheduled for tonight.   Hopefully you received a phone call letting you know of the cancellation, as we waited until the last possible minute to call it off.  We will let you know when it is rescheduled.

On Wednesday, Oct. 1st, it is Silver Mesa’s night at Classic Skating.  We truly appreciate Silcox Orthodontics for sponsoring this night for us.  The students always love this event.  Even better, it’s inside so we don’t have to worry about the weather!

Don’t forget that Friday is a planning day for teachers so there will be no school for students on this day.  It will be a short week filled with learning and fun.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

The online signups for a time for Parent/Teacher Conferences will close this Wednesday.  I have added information at the end of this email to help you access the site.  If you haven’t signed up by the deadline, teachers will assign you a time from the openings they have available.

PTA

This is the last couple of days to be part of the PTA’s fundraising and membership contest.  If you have already signed up to be a member, come pick up a Chick-fil-A coupon at the main office anytime.  If you still want to donate, any amount is welcome.  The Pizza and Popsicle parties are planned for this Thursday.  Thanks for all your support!  Here’s our current class rankings:

Reflections

The deadline for turning in a reflections contest entry is Tuesday, October 21st.  The theme this year is “The World Would Be a Better Place If…”  This year, the PTA is offering a “Packaging Party” the night before.  On Monday, October 20th, you may bring in your entries from 6:00-7:00 here at the school to be sure that they are packaged correctly and the correct paperwork is filled out.  This is a nice support from the PTA to ensure entries have followed the guidelines.  To access the paperwork, the state PTA website has the specifications: http://www.utahpta.org/reflections
