This week in conjunction with the Book Fair we have Parent Teacher Conferences, please make sure you get the chance to meet with your child’s teacher.  It’s great when home and school have a connection and are working together.

The N-95 masks have arrived from the state.  Teachers will pass these out to their students so each child will receive one.  

The T-shirts from the PTA have arrived, they will be distributed this week.  There are a few extra shirts, with limited sizes.  If you are interested in purchasing one, the PTA will be selling the shirts during parent teacher conferences on Wednesday from 4:00pm – 6:00pm and again on Thursday from 4:00pm – 5:00pm or until the supplies are out.

Don’t forget Reflections are due on October 20, 2021.

We will have more information on the Halloween Celebration later in the month.  

This October, our school is focusing on Mindset and Focus.  Sometimes finding focus when you are working on something is really hard.  You find yourself jumping back and forth and not accomplishing the task in a timely manner.  If you are interested in a few ways to help improve your focus, please see the attached article:


The following is information from the Utah Parent Night:

Understanding the “Why’s” of Talking with Your Child About Their Disability –

How can talking with your child about their disability empower them? In this workshop we will explore the benefits of having an open dialogue with your student about their disability. We will also look at strategies to help your student be empowered to be a participant in their learning and how you can support them as a parent through growing self-awareness, resilience and self-advocacy skills.
