Parents, Students, and Friends -


One day at a time is how we can PURSUE CHALLENGES FOR SELF-IMPROVEMENT. This is part of LEARNING TO LEARN WITH PASSION, our school’s second part of the vision we have. Students, what do you do to improve yourself one day at a time? What interests do you have that you want to learn more about? Come to the office and share your experience with Mr. Christensen, Mrs. LeMmon, or Mr. Mortensen for a small treat!


If any 7th grade student would like to go on a fieldtrip up Rock Canyon on October 3rd, the cost will be $2.00 and you will want to bring a sack lunch and water. Pay Mrs. Hall in the front office and you will be put on the list. Space is limited so FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. We will be gone most of the day to look at rock formations and the ways rocks are made.


The Cross Country meets that were postponed due to the air quality have been scheduled.

Late Tuesday evening Mrs. Burr sent out a message to our students and parents, "Families displaced by the fires need our help, bring items to school Wednesday morning to be donated to families and volunteer firefighers." The response was amazing! With such a short amount of time to bring items in we still had enough items to fill two trucks full. Thanks for your amazing support, we live in a wonderful community.
