FREE GROCERIES from the UTAH FOOD BANK: On Tuesday December 5, the Utah Food Bank and volunteers from Snap Finance will be distributing a bag of free groceries to students and families. The bags are heavy (20 pounds) and if you are able to either pick up your student at school or at the bus stop to help carry, that would be helpful. Parents can meet their students as they exit the gym on the north side of the school. If you want to ensure that your student gets in line for a food bag, please contact the teacher.
ALL PRO DADS FRI. Dec. 8! Fathers and father figures are invited to come for a morning program. The topic will be Gentleness and there is a fun video and activity that Mr. Heath will lead. Program starts at 7:30 am in the gym and breakfast is provided. RSVP on the Parent Square invitation.
VIVINT GIVES BACK is back for 2023 Holiday giving. All students at East Midvale will receive and open a bag of personalized gifts on December 14. If you plan to pick up your student that day, please wait until dismissal at 2:50 pm and meet your student outside. We ask for your patience that day as we negotiate all the logistics of getting students with all their things to buses and to where they need to be.
PARENT HOLIDAY PROGRAM is on Friday December 15 starting at 8:30 am. Each grade will sing 2 songs and then exit the gym. Program starts with 5th grade, then 4th, 3rd, Kinder, 1st and then 2nd grade. Families can enter through front doors and exit through the gym north door. Parents may come for the whole time or for a specific grade singing. We just ask that you plan your entry and exit during the breaks between grade levels.
