Family week at Enoch Elementary gave the opportunity to share in lunch, fun, and love. During the week of February 12 through 16 each day had a theme for students and families to share. Activities included Art Night, love hearts, Valentine cards, wearing a representation of your family, and donuts. Parents were also invited for lunch each day. It was quite a sight to see the halls filled with family fun.

Enoch Elementary had its annual Family Art and Literacy night Monday, February 12. Under the direction of Mrs. Kirsten Anderson, students and parents enjoyed creating art, playing with puppets and shadows, and eating cookies provided by the PTA. The choir and orchestra performed for parents and students. Mrs. Marcy Christensen taught parents reading strategies to help students be successful readers and writers. We would like to thank all parents who were in attendance, the teachers, and PTA for making the night a success.



The South Elementary Dribbling Club, under the direction of Morgan Gomez, has been busy practicing routines for the half time show for two of SUU’s home basketball games.  Those participating have had a great time working on their dribbling skills and performing for an audience.  They have practiced in the gym on early out Wednesdays.  Thank you to the volunteers who have helped make the Dribbling Club a success.

Canyon View Middle School Cougars are definitely a pack that sticks together! Over the past week and a half, students donated money to support the Ziegler family.  Over $1600 was raised from the kindness of our student body family.  For every dollar donated students received a raffle ticket.  Many prizes were donated in part to the generosity of our community and friends (Whittlesticks, CVMS cooks, teachers, Mammoth Bowstrings, Sew it Seams, Punishirt co., Duck Creek Horse Rides, Papa John’s Pizza, and Fringe and Co. ). 30 student names were drawn and prizes awarded. We wish Mr. Ziegler a speedy recovery.

The annual 7th/8th grade Valentine’s Dance was held after school on Wednesday, February 13. The students who attended danced their hearts out, and enjoyed each other’s company.  A big thanks goes to the student council for planning this for our school.



North Elementary is delighted to announce that our “Feeding from the Heart” canned food drive was a tremendous success.  Altogether, students and staff donated 2119 items which were then given to the Iron County Care and Share on Valentine’s Day.  Items included pasta, canned vegetables, boxed desserts, peanut butter, etc, etc.  Second grade donated the most with 633 items.  As a result they have earned popcorn and a movie.  Fifth grade was second with 560 items and kindergarten came in third place with 301 items. A huge “thank you” goes out to our Student Leadership Team and their coach, Mrs. Katherine Bleak, for their incredible leadership in this effort!
