Kindergarten registration, traditionally held in March, will be moved to the summer and combined with grades 1st -12th. More detailed information regarding summer registration for K-6th will be sent out to you before the end of the school year.

Parents can prepare now for registering their kindergarten children by making sure they have a birth certificate and that their child is current on the following immunizations: DTap, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Polio, Varicella and MMR by the end of July.  

We appreciate your help getting the word out. Please contact your school office if you have any questions. Thank you.

Today, February 21, 2019, our fifth and sixth graders had the opportunity to attend an engineering and technology fair put on by UVU.  Students got to go to and participate in three stations. They could build a maze out of straws for a marble run, build a catapult, or make a bridge out of close pins, craft sticks and binder clips.  They could could try out virtual reality, an Ozobot or program Finch Robots. They could learn about static electricity, build a tower out of cups without touching the cups, or try to balance a paper robot.  The students enjoyed having the UVU students her to work with them.

Did you know that the fifth graders celebrate their 1000th day of school on February 8? If you take the 180 days of first, second, third and fourth grade, 170 days of kindergarten (they start 5 days later and end 5 days earlier than the rest of the school) and add 110 days of fifth grade, you get 1000 days!  Miss Bird’s class celebrated being 1000 days smarter by doing and escape room where students had six tasks they had to complete. We all got “1000” cookies. Congrats fifth grade!
