PTA SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR - BOGO - We are excited to offer the Spring Book Fair as, "Buy One, Get One FREE!" The PTA is sponsoring this Book Fair to help families get new book for their students' summer reading. In a study conducted by Harrison Group and Scholastic they found that "An overwhelming 92% of kids say they are more likely to finish a book they picked out themselves." We can help. The Book Fair will be open the following times:

•Tuesday, May 2   9:45 am - 12:15 pm and 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
•Wednesday, May 3   9:45 am - 12:15 pm and 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
•Thursday, May 4   9:45 am - 12:15 pm and 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

FAIRVIEW ART MUSEUM - The Fairview Art Museum is currently featuring art from our kindergarten students. It will be on display through the end of this week. During the month of May, our first graders will display their art. Please support our students and take a family trip to the museum. It will be worth your time.

END OF YEAR TESTING -  This week students in grades K-6 will take the DIBELS Assessment. Students in grades 3-6 also started the Utah SAGE Assessment. Testing will continue through May 12. Please make sure your students are on time to school, and they are well rested and well fed each morning. Talk to your students about doing their best. We are excited to see how much our students have progressed and how much they have learned this school year. Please avoid any appointments or family trips during this testing period. Thanks for your support of our amazing students!
