Dear Eagles,

All week we are accepting donations for the Canned Food Drive to help out the Utah Food Bank.  Each grade has a barrel in the cafeteria we are watching as they fill.  Thanks for your kindness in helping out those in need.

This week you will be receiving the newly revised report cards for the first term.  They are going home on Wednesday, so look for them in backpacks.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher. 

Don’t forget your mustache for Spirit Day this Friday!

Volunteers Needed for Reading with Students

Thank you for your help in filling the needs for the Junior Achievement program in our school. We have great volunteers here!  We are in need of volunteers to read with students to help them practice their skills.  We don’t want to take away too much instructional time and feel that the first 15 minutes or last 15 minutes of the day would be a time that works for your schedule.  When you drop off your child at the start of the day, you could stay just 15 minutes to read with a student.  Or, you could come 15 minutes  early to pick up your child and read with a student at the end of the day.  The time commitment for this volunteer opportunity would be twice a week for the fifteen minutes at the beginning or end of the day, whichever works for you.  If you or someone you know would like to volunteer for this opportunity, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  If you are here for the fifteen minutes and can give more time, there are definitely other areas of need that we would welcome your time. 

Upcoming Dates:

•  The window for the Dual Immersion Lottery is open until Nov. 26th.  If you have a kindergarten student you would like to have start the program next year, sign up for the lottery on the district website.  If you have a child already in the program, you are still required to sign up your kindergarten student for the lottery.

Nov. 17th-21st:  Silver Mesa’s annual Canned Food Drive for the Utah Food Bank.  

Nov. 19th:  Reports cards will come home with students;  SAGE reports will come home with 4th and 5th grade students.
