East celebrated the start of another fantastic school year with our annual Back-to-School Luau! Students and families enjoyed free games, face painting, and rock wall climbing. It was a huge success, and we’d like to thank the PTA, the volunteers from different organizations who helped run activities, and the corporate sponsors who helped make the evening a success! Aloha!
Our PTA is also working hard on our reading incentive program. Every East Eagle should have a bookmark to keep at home. For every 20 minutes of reading, color in a box. When the bookmark is filled, have your child return it to school and get another one. Our PTA will keep track of the total number of minutes each child reads, and provide certificates and other rewards when milestones are met. They would love for each child to reach the status of Golden Eagle this year. Speaking of the PTA, it is not too late to join! Our PTA does a phenomenal job of providing activities and helping our students succeed. They’d love to have you be a part of the East team, even if you don’t have a lot of time. A lot of good can be accomplished with lots of small efforts.
Finally, we would like to officially welcome two new teachers to the East family. Mrs. Heather King is teaching in our fifth grade team, and Mrs. Tricia Adams is teaching third grade. Our students and faculty are lucky to have them both!
THREE PEAKS ELEMENTARY
We would like to thank Mrs. Susan Parker for organizing our Dasher’s Club each year for the past five years. Every Tuesday and Thursday, students are given the opportunity to walk and/or run together on the track and record the amount of miles they have progressed towards better health and wellness. Students receive a charm every 5 miles to wear proudly on a necklace. Last year, Three Peaks Elementary students ran over 8000 miles collectively. Maybe this year we can break 10,000! Some students recorded over 50 miles by themselves. At the end of the year, all students who have run more than 25 miles are recognized in a celebration party.
Enoch Elementary welcomed the newest Tigers as the Kindergarten students returned to school on Thursday, Aug. 23.
Enoch also welcomes two new staff members. Lindsey Hightower joins the third grade team. Jeanna Keller will be providing with upper elementary special education lessons. Enoch is happy to have them!
There is starting to be a touch of fall in the air, or at least some of us would like to think so. The kindergarten classes started today. We are excited to welcome Stacey Dodds as a new morning kindergarten teacher. We have had a great start of the school year at South Elementary. The teachers and staff at South are incredible and we would like to thank them for their dedication and hard work.
CEDAR MIDDLE SCHOOL
What a successful first week of school we had! Students are getting back into the school routine and proving to be very productive. Keep up the great work.
