Parent Update Week of April 1-5, 2024

NO SCHOOL THIS WEEK – It is spring break.  Enjoy.  


  • Congratulations to our students, teacher Ms. Bettison (5th grade) and staff Ms. Pua of the Month for Acceptance! 
  • Our Mario Cart March Madness Tournament was a big success. Students were able to buy participation using Dojo points they earned for positive behavior.  The finalists competed on Friday during the assembly and the winner is Colin C. (5th grade) with runners up ____, Victoria (3rd grade) and Essa (1st grade).
  • Fifth graders enjoyed their trip to Biztown where they used their financial skills to run businesses, balance earnings and spending and even elect a mayor.  Thank you to Junior Achievement and their partners for providing this amazing opportunity for our students each year.
  • Our librarian Ms. Erickson was running her own March Madness tournament and the winner and favorite EME book of 2024 is I’m Not Missing!  Look for this fun book in the local library over spring break.

CONGRATULATIONS to our Teacher of the Year 2024 Ms. Fangaafa Fatai Tuifua!  Ms. Fatai is an amazing educator, a dedicated peer mentor, a home visit advocate, a Utah Teacher Fellow, BLT team lead, Student Council Advisor and all around wonderful person.  We are so glad to have her in our school community!
