THANK YOU Mt. Loafer families! Because of your generosity we were able to exceed our goal and raise $1,567.13 to send to a sister school in Texas to buy supplies and materials they need to get their school back on their feet.
We are so proud of our Grizzly Sloth and the example they are to others! It truly is great to be a grizzly!
Congratulations to Ammon Wallace who was chosen from more than 6,000 students to be in Broadcom Masters' top 300 students for his science fair submission. Some of you will remember last year when we posted about Ammon's project that explored the possibility of extending the shelf-life of milk using blue light. We were impressed with Ammon's creative solution and it turns out that so were the judges.
This is a huge win for Ammon who will recieve free year-long subscriptions to science magazines and several other prizes. If chosen, the next step for Ammon would be Washington D.C. where 30 finalists will compete for top recognition and a grand prize of $25,000.
Make sure to congratulate Ammon and recognize this great achievement. Ammon is a great example for all of us of what it means to be Spartan Strong.

The next step in the Broadcom MASTERS takes place on September 20, 2017 when 30 finalists will be selected from the top 300 MASTERS. Finalists and one parent or guardian will receive an all-expense paid trip to Washington, DC to attend the Broadcom MASTERS Finals Week competition from October 20-24, 2017.

With Hurricane Harvey being such a heartbreaking disaster, the students wanted to reach out and help other elementary aged students in Texas because many have lost all their school supplies and schools. We want to come together as a school community to help school children affect by Hurricane Harvey. To do this we are going to designate Wednesday September 6th as "Helping Hands for Harvey Day"! We are going to ask that students bring $1 and dress as a "Texan" (western/cowboy attire) on this day. All the money we collect will be sent to Texas to help school children in need. Fourth Graders will come around Wednesday afternoon to collect the donations from each classroom. We hope you will encourage your students to get involved! Our goal as a school is to raise $1,000! Thanks for being involved!

Congratulations to those who made the cut yesterday and were chosen for the Salem Junior High golf team. The competition was intense and some students had to go out for a second round to help the coaches make their final decision.
Here are the students who made the cut:
Coach Roberts thanked everyone for coming out and encouraged those who didn't make the cut to keep practicing and to try out the next year.
We have gathered some resources that might be useful to parents.
My name is Emily Grace Hoppes. I grew up in Alabama, but moved to Mississippi when I got married two years ago. My husband and I then relocated to Utah in January and have loved our time here. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in 2015 from the University of Alabama and will be completing my master’s degree in Middle Level Education from Mississippi State University very soon.
This is my first year teaching and I am honored to begin my career with this special class and school. I have an awesome group of fourth graders and I am so excited to spend this year at Mt. Loafer!
