Dear Eagles,

We had a fabulous PTA Literacy/Art night last week!  Thank you to all who attended and to all who helped make it happen.  Due to an unexpected snow storm, the art truck didn’t come.  But that didn’t stop it from being a wonderful event.  We’ve scheduled the art truck to come before the end of the school year so students will have a chance to see the art.

Jog-a-thon Fundraiser

We officially kicked off our school fundraiser last Friday with a fun assembly featuring some amazing teachers!  We are excited to focus on fitness the next three weeks while we prepare to participate in the Fun Run on May 8th.  Hopefully you received the paperwork explaining ways the students can earn tickets for prize drawings.  Today, students started earning tickets by running laps on our field during their recess break.  Another way to earn a ticket is to return the yellow information sheet.  I’ve attached all the information sheets to this email if for some reason the paperwork didn’t make it home last Friday.  (We hear that sometimes happens!)  Reserve the date to come cheer on our runners or even participate yourself.  Through the pledges, we are hoping to earn enough funding for a Chromebook mobile lab (similar to laptop computers).  Thanks for your support! 

Your Utah, Your Future Survey

Don’t forget to take the survey and earn a dollar for our school.  Envision Utah, a nonprofit group that engages Utahns in planning for the future, wants your feedback as they create a state-wide vision for what you want Utah to be like in 2050. Click the link, choose Silver Mesa to support, and let your voice be heard.
