Dear Eagles,

We are on the last stretch of our school year and enjoying many end-of-year activities.   We had a great assembly last week with author Lindsay Eyre.  She did an assembly for younger grades, one for older grades, and then did some writing workshops for grade levels.  She stayed all day, and we enjoyed working with a published author.  Thanks, PTA, for sponsoring her and for providing a book for each classroom and for each 2nd grader. 

Spanish teachers leaving Silver Mesa

We have three Spanish teachers leaving Silver Mesa this year and want to wish them well.  Senora Sanchez, 5th grade, will be returning to her home in Mexico.  Senora Milano, 4th grade, will be returning to her home in Spain.  Senora Martinez, 1st grade, will be going with her husband to teach in Kentucky.  They have contributed a lot to our school, and we appreciate them!  Bueno Suerte! 

Safety Patrol

Does being on Safety Patrol look fun?  It is!  All 3rd and 4th graders received a note about serving on Safety Patrol next year.  Please get your applications turned in so you can be part of the team.

Your Utah, Your Future Survey

Last reminder to complete the survey at http://envisionutah.org/  if you haven’t done so.  Choose Silver Mesa to support, and our school will earn $1 for each survey completed.  The survey is open until the end of the month.

PTA Notes

  • There is a needs assessment survey that will be sent out by email this week.  Please fill it out to let PTA how they can best meet the needs for students next year.
  • The following positions on the PTA are still open for next year:   
    • Teacher Appreciation chair (or co-chairs) 
    • Jr. Achievement chair 
    • Room Mom coordinator 
    • Emergency Kits chair 

If you would like to volunteer in one of these areas, let PTA know.

  • To give you a heads up, PTA is planning to do the “No Fuss Fundraiser” again this year at the beginning of the year.  You can contribute online during registration, or on their Facebook page, or at the school through the month of September.
  • It’s not too early to start thinking about the Reflections contest.  The theme for next year is “Let Your Imagination Fly.”  This might be a fun summer project.
  • Because of the wonderful support we received at the book fair, we were able to save enough Scholastic money to purchase a book for each Silver Mesa student. Your child was able to pick out a book today to enjoy over the summer. Thank-you to all the volunteers who helped with our book fairs and the book give-away. We couldn't have done it without you! Mary Ann Curtis and Heidi Vincent will be taking over as the book fair co-chairs in the fall. They will be looking for volunteers come September. Happy reading!!
