BASKETBALL PEP ASSEMBLY: It's time for another rally! Boys basketball is in full swing, so we'll be introducing and celebrating them Thursday, November 4, 2:35-3:10 PM. Cheer will be performing and student government will run a high-energy game. Masks are highly recommended. Please chat with your student about mask expectations that morning. Mr. McLean Paul (room 132) will be hosting students (and families) who are not comfortable attending, and those students can head there instead of the assembly, no questions asked.

We will miss our 5th/6th grade friends, but until COVID restrictions loosen a little, we're keeping the group to junior high only to allow a little more space (and a little less breathing on top of each other). We hope to have our building buddies back later this year. If you have a 6th grade basketball player, have them check with their teacher to see if they can attend (teachers have been notified).

STEM EXPO UTAH - Bring your family to the free STEM Expo on Monday, November 8, 4:30-7:30 PM.

Learn about career opportunities in the local STEM industries. Meet with representatives of local technical colleges, community colleges, and universities to explore educational pathways. Come be a part of the explosive and exciting world of STEM! Go to this website for more information:
