Entries will be due by Friday October 4 by 2:00 pm.  Entries can be turned in to the main office at any time, on October 3 & 4 there will be volunteers in the main office to collect them before school.

Please go to Utahpta.org (under programs/reflections/General & Arts category pages and forms) for information about the rules and guidelines for each category, as well as the entry forms.  Rules and entry forms will also be placed near the main office.

Please be sure to sign the form.....and have your student write the artists statement, and follow all other rules to ensure that their entry can move on if chosen.  Thanks!

From Principal Christy Waddell

Thank you so much for attending the grandparents lunch last week.  It was wonderful.  And thanks to the PTA for all their hard work.  I loved seeing the golf cart whip around and pick up grandparents who had to park a ways away.  

VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION BREAKFAST: The PTA would like to honor anyone who comes to the school and volunteers. There will be a breakfast at 9:00am on May 14th.  Please plan on stopping in.

TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK: The week of May 6-10 is Teacher appreciation week.  The PTA could use your help.  Please go to the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0448afa722a1fd0-teacher1

DRESS CODE:  As the weather warms up please remember that kids should not be wearing tank tops or short shorts.  Flip flops are okay but only if they don’t have play works that day and they don’t plan to run around outside. 

SAVERS DONATIONS FOR SUPPLIES: Draper Dragons! Did your kids grow out of their clothes this winter like ours did? We can turn your unneeded clothing, shoes, accessories and linens into more art supplies, books, equipment, and computer programs for your students.  No, it's not magic. We are partnering with Savers to turn your donated items into cash for our Brain Booster classes-- they pay by the pound! So, please see the attached flyer and start cleaning out your closets. Donations can be dropped off in garbage bags (please no boxes) before or after school May 1, 2, and 3rd
