Marvin and Jesse performed again for South Elementary students. This time they participated in The Hard Work Olympics. Students learned about the importance of getting started and sticking with their work and chores. The students watched competitors compete in the events of service, physical endurance, and doing chores. The Marvin and Jesse plays are an entertaining character education program, which is a favorite among students.


Congratulations to our 4th grade teachers for being named the team of the year! Mrs. Sue Braden, Mrs. Melinda Huntsman, Mr. Brian Wright, and Mrs. Cami White were awarded on January 23. We are also proud of our Volunteers of the Year, Mrs. Veronica Dearden, Mrs. Lisa Woolsey, Lethe Kelsey, and Crystal Trujillo.

Our school celebrated the one hundredth day of school Friday, January 19th. Students in third grade played games and created pieces of art for the occasion.

The Education Department at the Utah Shakespeare Festival invited fourth and fifth grades to attend The Tempest, showing at the Randall Jones Theatre. Students enjoyed the play and were able to ask questions to the actors afterwards.


East Celebrates 100th Day of School! First graders have been working hard on their math skills. They’ve been counting by ones, fives, and tens, and on the 100th day of school, they really celebrated! The entire first grade, including teachers, came to school dressed up like they were 100 years old. Underneath the white hair, wrinkles, and glasses, though, were some exceptionally bright kids who were excited to prove they were officially 100 days smarter. Students had lots of fun with the number 100. They counted 100 items, counted to 100 using different methods, and wrote about what life would be like for them when they were 100.

It’s hard to believe that we’re more than half way through the 2017-2018 school year. We would like to remind parents that attendance is very important, however, if your child is ill we ask that you keep him or her at home.

Finally, parent conferences will be held during the week of February 5-9th. If you have not yet scheduled your conference, we invite you to contact your child’s teacher to set an appointment. We are excited to talk to you about your child’s progress. The PTA is also hosting a Scholastic Book Fair that week. It is Buy-One- Get-One- Free, so it’s a great way to build your home library and stretch your dollars at the same time. We hope to see you there.

Fourth grade students at Three Peaks Elementary have been learning about the history of Utah. On January 4, 1896, Utah was admitted to the Union as the 45th state. To celebrate our state’s 122nd birthday, the fourth grade students presented a program to students and parents on January 25. It was wonderful to hear songs and speaking parts and witness scenes depicting how and when Utah was discovered and settled. Thank you to the students who memorized parts and parents who helped with costumes. A special thanks to the fourth grade teachers for all of their hard work in getting this program ready: Mrs. Linda Sahagun, Mrs. Cheyenna Leavitt, Mrs. Stacie Marriott, and Mrs. Brenda Roundy.

SEP conferences are scheduled for February 5-9, 2018. This is a great opportunity to start or continue ongoing conversations with your child’s teacher and learn how to help your children do their best in school.
