Dear Eagles,

I’m excited to announce that we met and surpassed our fundraising goal for our jogathon!!  Thank you so very much to everyone who donated money towards a mobile Chrome Book Lab.  We raised $14,576 (our goal was $12,000), and we will have enough to purchase the mobile lab as well as extra Chrome Books to put in classrooms.  Thank you for your generosity.  Also, a special thanks to our teacher committee:  Amy Sandgren, Maria Bailey, and Jordan Wouden.  So many parents donated their time as well with organizing and helping with recesses and helping with the actual run itself.  We have an awesome community!

Long-time Silver Mesa teacher retiring

Well-loved Mr. Kay Cook will be retiring at the end of this school year.  He has been in education over 30 years and has made a difference for many, many students.  He is highly respected, and we will miss him!  We will honor him this Friday with an open house from 1:00-2:30 in our school media center.  Please stop by and wish him well!

Town Hall Meeting

Don’t forget, school board members Robert Green, Clareen Arnold, and Steve Wrigley will be holding their last Town Hall meeting for the year on Thursday, May 21st from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM at the Jordan High School Choir Room.

Library Books Due

All library books are due by May 22nd

Your Utah, Your Future Survey

Just a quick 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

  • The PTA is looking for those who would be interested in volunteering next school year for various events.  One area specifically is the Reflections contest.  If you’d like to help out with that committee, please let PTA know. 
  • Check out many of the fun doors PTA decorated to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week.  We had a great week!  Thank you!  See the pictures on our school website (link below).
