The PTA has been asking students to bring in box tops and hopes to see more when children return from the holiday break.

The PTA will celebrate Story Night and Readasaurus’ birthday late next month, so parents can begin planning for that.

Fairview Elementary

            Still not done with your holiday shopping? Amazon.com is working with the school and if you shop on Amazon.com the school will benefit with a charitable donation. Before you shop, go to http://www.smile.amazon.com and choose “PTA Utah Congress Fairview Elementary” as your donation.  There is no extra cost, but kids will definitely benefit.

            Parents were invited on a tour of the school for the school’s first ever Partners in Education (PIE) Day. They were able to watch teachers instruct kids from kindergarten, third-, fourth- and sixth-grade classes. After they watched some instruction in math, reading and test prep, they gathered to talk about what they learned and asked questions, and, of course, ate pie.

According to research from Principal Allynne Mower, parents who are involved in their students’ education have kids who are more likely to attend class more regularly, complete homework, earn higher grades and test scores. It also adds a boost to the child’s self-esteem.

The school will offer brunch of funnel cakes on Dec. 20, before students are dismissed from school for the Christmas break at noon.

 

North Sanpete Middle School

            Students are involved in a Food Drive and are attempting to collect at least 1,200 food items to donate to the Sanpete Pantry. Today is the last day for items to be donated. If you have canned goods, please send them with your child to the school. Students who bring at least four items will have the chance to win cool stuff in a drawing. Every four items brought to Mrs. Ivory’s room will render one drawing ticket, so the more kids bring, the more chances they will have to win.
