Thank you to our 70 students and 1 teacher who participated in our 2nd year of our no-carve pumpkin contest. Students selected a book they have read and painted or created a pumpkin to go with the book.

Magic happens when children read. These pumpkins show what wonderfully creative minds our students have. Thanks to Miss Patti, our librarian, for organizing this event and helping our students develop a love of reading.

The holidays are just around the corner and we want to make sure that you have information to help families in need this Christmas.  For over 35 years, United Way of Utah County's Sub for Santa has coordinated with local schools and nonprofits to provide gifts for children in Utah County. These gifts include books, educational toys, and winter clothes. This is a temporary Christmas assistance program that assists families that are not getting help from anyone else. Sub for Santa goes beyond Christmas. We also help families with taxes, parenting support, and link them to other needed resources.  Please see the flyer for more information. And thank you to UNITED WAY for looking out for children and families especially during the holidays.

Whereas, the vision, dedication, and determination of a school principal provides the stable force behind schools;

Whereas, principals have many roles in the education of their students and are entrusted with the dedication and development of young people; and,

Whereas, we recognize the outstanding elementary, middle level, and high school principals who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students;

Now, therefore, I, Gary R. Herbert, Governor of the great State of Utah, do hereby declare October 2020, as
