(more pictures available)

Every Friday, "Praise Notes" are read during morning announcements. These students are called to the office and get thier picture taken. Students can earn a "Praise Note" by being caught doing kind things throughout the school and classrooms. Our very first "Praise Note" goes to Brendan Bliss, a fourth grader from Mrs. Dietz class! Way to go!

Also, great job to all the other student pictured with him above, who also received praise notes this week. What a great way to start the year!

Welcome to Sierra Bonita!

Our PTA would love having the support of all parents and teachers. Why become a member of the PTA?
Utah PTA is the largest volunteer child advocacy organization in Utah. Our PTA funds and organizes
various events that make a positive impact on our children’s educational experience at Sierra Bonita
Elementary: book fairs (bringing hundreds of books into the school library and classrooms),
Reflections, Red and Green Ribbon Week, Teacher Appreciation Week and many more. Your
membership (only $6 per year) allows you to choose your local leaders and have a say on how funds
are utilized. Members also benefit from affiliation with state and national PTA (receiving support
materials and leadership training). In addition, all members receive a membership card with discounts
to local vendors (who also choose to support their local PTA).

If you want to become a member of the PTA, we will be available at the school on Registration day
(Tuesday August 2nd) and again at the Open House on Monday, August 22nd, 6:00-7:00 pm to help
you sign up.

If you want to be more involved, we are now looking for volunteers to chair PTA activities
that will take place during the 2016 – 2017 school year. Please click on the link to see where you are
needed to help make our school a success:

Upcoming Events
 Membership signup forms and school T-shirts will be available at registration and Open House: August
