Inside Our Schools 2-23-2017
Villain No. 3 has been uncovered at Spring City Elementary School. The students read their books, wrote their summaries and raced to get all the clues that, once solved, would reveal the third criminal in the theft of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Books. The clue was, “I have seen your heart, and it is mine, Harry Potter.” Voldemort from the Harry Potter series is Villain No. 3.
The winning team this quarter is from the sixth-grade class: Morgan Zanocco, Elizabeth Dahl, Chelsea Haveron and Kason Tapia.
At the assembly on Monday, Feb. 13, Snow College student/actor, Elijah Hancock, played the part of Voldemort in the skit. Spring City Officer Keith Nunley disarmed Voldemort with the Expelliarmus Curse and escorted the culprit away.
There is only one villain/criminal remaining. Who could it be? Twelve clues remain. Will the students at Spring City Elementary School figure it out in time to get the Diary of Wimpy Kid books returned to the school? We’ll see.
EPHRAIM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
The students recently participated in the World’s Finest Chocolate Fundraiser. This year close to 200 boxes of chocolate bars were sold to earn money for school programs and events. Thank you to all those who supported the fundraiser. As students sold boxes, they were able to spin a prize wheel and win various items. Students also earned cash prizes depending on sales. The fundraiser was a wonderful success. Principal Gannon Jones treated the top sellers to a special lunchtime field trip, and each student received a one pound bar of chocolate.

NORTH SANPETE MIDDLE SCHOOL
Students at North Sanpete Middle School are in the middle of celebrating FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) week. The celebration is using different hashtags each day to highlight a different aspect of the program. On Tuesday, students looked for the hashtag #SpeakUp which they could turn in for a chance to win a prize. On Wednesday the hashtag was #DressUp, and students were encouraged to wear red in support of FCCLA. Today, students are being invited to #TeamUp by wearing their favorite team’s shirt and attending the game night from 7 to 8 p.m. at the school where they can play Life, Monopoly and Pay Day. Tomorrow, FCCLA members will provide free hot chocolate, distribute the prizes and provide information about FCCLA.
