Red Ribbon Week

This week has been so much fun for Red Ribbon Week. Each day, students dressed up to represent being Drug Free! We even had athletes from BYU come and talk about how being drug free has helped them. They even had a push-up contest at the assembly! What a great way for the students to see how being drug-free is the way to go.

Our amazing PTA hosted the Scholastic Book Fair October 6-9. They had Grand Events where parents could come and eat with their students at lunch and go to the book fair. t is being held in the north gym. They also had a competition to see which grade level could bring in the most donations. The winning grade level teachers will be entered into a Monster Eating Contest! The amount of money in these jars will "tell the story" The decorations and displays were amazing, we have the greatest PTA!
