Ephraim Elementary School
Next Monday, March 5, will be a half day of school. Students will be excused early at 11:30 a.m. The teachers will be attending a district reading training in the afternoon. Students will be served lunch an hour early and then excused to go home. Buses will run as usual. There will be morning kindergarten and morning preschool classes; no afternoon sessions.
Last night, a fundraiser was held at the school for Lee and Janeen Sorensen. Longtime Fairview residents who have worked at the school and Cache Valley Bank for several years, both of the Sorensons are dealing with serious health issues. Janeen has already undergone two brain surgeries and has been hospitalized since December. There was a hot dog meal, concessions, a silent auction and a donation jar. Attendees also enjoyed a free showing of “Wonder.” Those interested in contributing can call Trine Huntington at 262-7168.
Ephraim Middle School
Yesterday, in partnership with the PTA and Manti High School, the school provided an anti-pornography assembly entitled “Fight the New Drug” at Manti High School to seventh- and eighth-grade students. The physiological and psychological effects of pornography were addressed at the assembly. A program for parents on this subject was held at Ephraim Middle School last night. Sixth-graders attended a separate internet safety Netsmartz assembly sponsored by the technology department at the middle school.
North Sanpete Middle School
The Theater Foundations classes of North Sanpete Middle School did two performances of teacher Kim Markworth’s comedy-mystery, “Visiting Grandparents,” yesterday evening. This is a significant year for Markworth who has directed around 2,000 students in over 80 casts the past 20 years at North Sanpete Middle School.
“One of the best aspects of this job is seeing students of all abilities get to be a part of the performance and to see them succeed,” she said. “I have many great memories of working with the wonderful students of North Sanpete.”
