Monday Minute

Dear Parents,

Tomorrow night is our Literacy Night, and we are so excited!  It’s always a great event, and we appreciate the PTA and the many hands that make this event so successful.  We have a great community!


Sandy Art Show

During the month of February, several Silver Mesa students submitted artwork to the Sandy Art Show.  


Out of the hundreds of submissions, four of our students received rewards:

Jett Young 2nd grade – 2nd place

Libby Buswell 2nd grade 3rd place

Nevie Hosenfeld 4th grade Honorable Mention

Dylan Novack 5th grade 3rd place


The Art Show is currently taking place at the Shops at South Town.  The display is next to the Home Goods entrance.   Congrats to our awesome artists! 


Emergency Drill

We practiced an emergency drill today:  Carbon Dioxide leak with evacuation.  Every month we practice a drill so that we’ll be ready if there is a true emergency.  Next month we’ll practice an  Earthquake Drill.  


Kindness Is Cool

Here are some examples of kindness happening at our school these past couple of months.  We have the best students!

Azaylea Olsen (5th grade) – always being willing to help.  She is a rock star!

Claire Featherstone (5th grade) – being aware of other’s needs, sometime above her own

Henning Jensen (Kindergarten) – letting another student borrow his extra coat

Zack Lewis (2nd grade) – making sure everyone felt special and included

Rocky Burnside (2nd grade) – helping a fellow student with their shoe

Daris Zeljkovic (Kindergarten) – helping a friend with a math problem

Silas Smith (1st grade) – saying hello to his old Kindergarten teacher after school, almost everyday

Anderson Ortiz Cante (5th grade) – he gave up his swing for a friend

William Bodily (Kindergarten) – cleaning up all the erasers for me so I didn’t have to do it

*-Literacy Night March 21st 5:00-8:00

    Literacy Night is Tomorrow!  Eeek!  We sure could use your help making the night run smoothly.  

A few considerations: 

1.Sign up your Silver Mesa Alumni to help for 1/2 hour or more.  This will be for wand help, point tallying, 

     Wizard’s Duel, Rita Skeeter, Potions, and other possibilities.  If you have a preference of class, 

      please write it in the comments.

2. Dads will have a lot of fun in Wizard’s Duel and Potions classes.  Where are our W.A.T.C.H. Dogs at?  

3. Book Fair is part of Literacy Night and is on a separate sign up.

4. Consider dressing up for the event!  It’s always fun to see Harry Potter characters roaming the 

      halls.  You just might get asked for a celebrity picture or two!


It really helps for us to have sign ups complete by Monday night and not waiting until the last minute, if possible.  That way we can email you directions so you have some sort of idea of what you’ll be doing before you arrive.  It gets busy fast and I can’t be available to every class to give directions in a timely manner.
