Earlier this month students competed in the regional You Be The Chemist challenge. The challenge is a fun and interactive academic competition that encourages students in grades 5-8 to explore chemistry concepts and their real-world applications. We are pleased to announce that we have 9 students moving from Canyon View Middle School to the state competition in April.  In the regional competition, Anthony McCune placed 2nd while Regan Miller, Joshua McDonald and Maxton Cannon tied for fourth place. All are to be congratulated, for a job well done regarding a very rigorous competition. Best of luck at the state competition!



South’s students participated in a NetSmartz assembly which taught them strategies about how to stay safe when they are online. The students learned about online risks and the importance of reporting inappropriate content to a trusted adult.  Some of our students were able to attend the play, Tom Sawyer, presented at the Heritage Theatre by the Utah Shakespearean Festival’s Playmakers.  The students enjoyed watching some of their friends from South act in the play.  Cast members from South included: Rachel Corry, Grace Leavitt, Claire Stillman, Emma Vaughn, Ruby Webb, Audrey Leavitt, Caroline Stillman, Gracie Ulrich, and Scarlett Vaughn.  First graders also were able to attend a performance of, Peter Pan, presented by the Cedar City Children’s Musical Theatre.



It was full STEAM ahead the week of March 19-23 at Enoch Elementary. Students participated in science, technology, engineering, arts and math activities that were both engaging and fun. Teachers had a STEAM day where each teacher taught a different standard and students rotated through each classroom in their grade level. Southern Utah University brought their indoor planetarium to our school. Students were able to sit in the planetarium and SUU students taught about planets, the North Star, different constellations, moons of Jupiter and much more!

Students were invited to attend a showing of We Are Monsters and Tom Sawyer at the Randall Jones’ Theater Friday, March 23. Some of Enoch Elementary students were in the play. We would like to tell them great job!

Parowan Elementary is currently raising funds for new playground equipment. It has been several years since the upper grade playground has had any new large equipment installed. Parowan Elementary PTO is currently accepting donations to help cover the cost of a new big toy to be installed before the 2018-2019 school year. Their goal is to raise $20,000 in the next two weeks. The new equipment that they are hoping to purchase is about $43,000+. Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Parowan Elementary PTO to make a donation or ask questions.
