Dear Eagles,

Thank you parents and PTA for a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Week last week.  You helped our entire staff feel noticed and appreciated.  We are very grateful!

End of Year Testing

We are continuing our end of year testing this week.  Our students have been focused and are working their best.  We are proud of what they have accomplished this year!


We love volunteers!  As a reminder, in order to volunteer in our school you’ll need proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 14 days of your volunteering shift.  Our school can furnish you with a voucher for free, rapid testing at the Canyons District Office (see details below).

Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to assemble 90  All Purpose Kits for the Utah Refugee Connection. This is AMAZING!  We almost doubled our goal.  Way to go Eagles!!!  And thanks to Elise Caffee for taking charge last month. 


Our new board was voted in at last Monday’s meeting.  Thanks to all those who attended.  After attending the PTA Convention, we have decided to add White Ribbon Week to PTA’s program sponsorship next year.  See below:

Board Chairs still needed:

White Ribbon Week

Plan and organize parent volunteers to run activities during White-Ribbon week, which can be whenever we want it to be! White Ribbon Week is a fun-filled elementary school program that helps kids make healthy choices in media and technology. Every day, kids learn a new principle of online behavior through stories, classroom discussions and fun activities.


You will help organize the membership campaign, to get members to register for PTA at the beginning of the school year, and enter names into the PTA database for the year.  It is typically done at back-to-school night and during the first few weeks of school.

Thank you!
