It’s fundraising time at Enoch Elementary! Students will be selling Starving Student cards to fund new benches for the playground. These cards can be yours for $25. You can save your family hundreds of dollars on food and entertainment! The fundraiser ended Tuesday, September 5.

Enoch welcomed Kindergarteners Thursday, August 24. Teachers are enjoying getting to know the newest tigers. We are all thrilled to watch them grow into smart, respectful, and successful students.

Keep a lookout for September reading calendars. Our goal is 1.6 million minutes for the year. The top 5 readers in each grade will receive a prize each month. Students with completed calendars will be entered into a drawing to win a kindle. Even teachers will win prizes this year! We are all excited to see what will happen to Principal Daniel Ekker if we reach our goal!



The East Elementary PTA sponsored an amazing Back to School Luau for students on Aug. 28. Our East families enjoyed carnival games, sack races, limbo, face painting, balloon animals and more. A big shout out to our donors who made it possible for games and prizes to be free.  Cedar Orthopedic (Golden Eagle Donor), Ace Hardware, All About Smiles Dentistry, Bulloch Drug, Cedar Drug and Gift, Charlie’s Southern Barbecue, Color Country Pediatrics, Image Pro, KB Oil, Lin’s, Little Caesars Pizza, Midtown Tire & Amp Auto, Pork Belly’s, Ron’s Sporting Goods, Southern Utah Vision Care, Tiki Shack, Wal-Mart and Zion Sun Floral.

Another big thank you to the CHS Volleyball team and the CVHS Talons for joining parents and teachers to run the activities.



Life Touch pictures will visit Three Peaks Elementary for fall pictures on September 12.  Please watch for picture packets coming home with students. Our first character education assembly will be held on September 13 at 12:55 p.m.  The focus skill this month is peace making. We can’t wait to see what adventures Marvin and Jessie have in store for us. The PTA will host a meeting on September 14 at 7 p.m. in the library to discuss a new program called Diamondback Dads.  This is a program that will involve dads (or all the men in our students’ lives) in activities, projects, etc. during the school day. Please attend the meeting to learn more about this worthwhile program.



North Elementary is full “STEAM” ahead for the school year!  We’ve got some great news!  The SUU Center for STEM Teaching and Learning will be providing homework help in science, technology, and math at North Elementary’s science lab starting on September 5th.  Look for the posters on the southwest corner of the school!  Homework help will be provided by SUU STEM majors and will be available on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 3:30 to 8 p.m. and on Wednesday afternoons from 1:30 to 5 p.m.  The service is FREE OF CHARGE and is for ALL students, grades K-12.  Please note:  students in grades K-8 must be accompanied by a parent.  Come take advantage of this wonderful resource!



The CVMS counselors would very much like to invite all parents to check out the counseling link on the school website.  There is a lot of information on the site that parents of middle school students might find beneficial in navigating this phase of their child’s life.

7th and 8th grade students attended a Welcome Back dance last week. All had a great time.

Reminder . . . student council elections are coming soon. Make sure to choose the strongest candidate for each office.



Kindergarten has started! Mrs. Ginger Ekker and Mrs. Linda Wood have been busy preparing for the first day of Kindergarten, and the big day finally arrived on August 24. Everyone has enjoyed seeing our newest students learning their school routine.

In addition to their regular classroom, they have already been busy going to music class, art class, PE, library, and the computer lab. Welcome to the graduating class of 2030!
