PICTURE DAY FOR STUDENTS
Picture Day is coming up on September 14th! Students MUST wear approved uniform dress for pictures to be taken.
SOMETHING FUN!! & MATH TUTORING
We are going to be doing a Games Club this year for students 6th-9th grade. The club will be run by Mr. Cameron Pingree with the help of Mr. Gypp and Mr. McLean. We will be holding meetings on Fridays starting Sept 9 from 1:20pm to 4pm. We will be playing table top games, for example: Dungeons and Dragons, Magic the Gathering, and other table top board games. Anyone wanting to join can either go to any of the 3 teachers listed above, or go to the school website and print out a permission slip. The permission slip can then be returned to any of those before mentioned teachers. The club is free for anyone wanting to enter.
We will be starting back up with the math tutoring program next week for all Jr. High students. This will be from 3:15pm to 4:00pm on Mondays to Thursdays. As with last year, Mondays will be for 7th grade, Tuesday for 8th, Wednesday for 9th, and Thursday for everyone 7-9. This program will be run by Mr. Cameron Pingree and we will work on any classwork the students need extra help with as well as studying for tests and working to build their knowledge of math in a smaller setting.

WATERFORD UPSTART INFO
Waterford Upstart is an at-home early learning program for Utah children entering kindergarten in 2022 and 2023. Children learn foundational skills in reading, math, and more in as little as 15 minutes a day. Families receive resources to prepare their children for school, including:
Award-winning, adaptive software proven to boost reading outcomes and produce learning gains that last
