East Elementary

Welcome Back! The school year is off to a great start at East! Faculty and staff are busy getting to know our amazing students. Our students are working hard reviewing and being great citizens, and our PTA is working hard making our school a great place to be!

On August 28, friends and family of East Eagles are invited to our annual Luau at 5:30! It’s a great night of fun! Our students are also selling Starving Student Cards as a fundraiser this month.  The PTA would like to remind parents to return any unsold cards.

A big thank you to all of our amazing faculty, staff, parents, and students for a terrific start of the 2017-2018 school year!

North Elementary

Cedar North Elementary is so excited to be in our new building!  Thank you Iron County!  Each day we work through new logistical glitches and things are running quite smoothly now.  One thing that we could really use help with:  Parents, our student drop off and pick up zone is HUGE!  Please take full advantage of it by always pulling forward as far as possible in the drop off lane. NEVER stop in the thru lane to drop off or pick up a student.  This is a tragic accident waiting to happen! 

On a brighter note, we’d like to thank Dr. Cody Wilson, a local orthodontist, for donating enough solar eclipse glasses for all our students!  As a STEAM school, we think it important to take advantage of this rare event.  The next one won’t happen until all our present students are grown and graduated! Thanks Dr. Wilson!

South Elementary

Welcome Back Students!! South Elementary was “buzzing” with activity this past week. We want to welcome everyone back to school.  You can feel the enthusiasm from the teachers, students and staff. Thank you to everyone who made Back to School Night a success. There was a great turn out, which helped alleviate some of the first day jitters.

Our new PTA President this year is Jane Clayton, and we want to thank her and her board for helping to get school off to a great start. She and Amy Wittwer printed off the first of the year notices and with help from other PTA members stuffed all the new school folders.  We want to welcome our new students and wish everyone a happy and successful year.

Three Peaks Elementary

Welcome Back to Three Peaks Elementary after a nice, long summer.  We are happy to have all of the cute students and the hardworking teachers and paraprofessional back to school.

Three Peaks welcomes the following wonderful teachers to our faculty this year: Kellie Nowland-Kindergarten, Linda Sahagun-4th grade, Karlene Young-BTS Arts/Drama specialist, Stephanie Abbott-Special Education, and Kim Zulewski-USDB. These teachers are highly trained and care about the education and well-being of all students at Three Peaks Elementary. 

We appreciate all of the students and parents that attended Back-to-School Night on August 10.  A big thanks to all those who volunteered to help make this night possible, especially our awesome PTA.

The students had a successful solar eclipse viewing party on August 21.  Thank you to the SUU Stem Center for Teaching and Learning for providing viewing glasses for our students. Thanks to everyone for a tremendous start to the new school year!

Welcome Back Cougars! Celebrating the opening of the 2017-2018, Mr. Ike Spencer, Mrs. Sarah Hulet, Mrs. Vickie Patterson, and Mrs. Jennifer Christiansen were recognized and honored as 6th grade team of the year. Way to go team!  Not only do our teachers strive for excellence, our band and orchestra students rock too!  Mrs. Teresa Redd and Mrs. Lauralyn Anderson led some of our former and present students in a musical performance for the entire Iron County School District staff.  

Wishing everyone a very successful year!

Our band student enrollment at CMS is on the rise. We anticipate some great concerts this year. Go Band!

Twenty art students from Megan Nelson’s classes had the opportunity to participate in Art Day at Cedar Mountain. It was held at the SUU Mountain Center. Counselor Ashley Whiting shared this quote of the day: “Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know.” -Daniel J. Boorstin.
