Upper grade students recently visited the U of U to get a taste of the university experience.
See the SLC School District article here. Thanks to our counselor, Dan, for arranging this field trip.
Later our 8th graders hosted representatives from local high schools to see their more immediate options. The students heard presentations and asked thoughtful questions about what the various high schools have to offer them.
Thank you to all of the high school counselors, teachers, students and administrators at Innovations, East, West, Highland, Roots, Realms of Inquiry, SPA, SLCSE and City Academy who took the time to visit and enlighten our future graduates. It was great to see some of our “old” friends who have moved on!
Our 3-5 grade classes collected pet supplies and donated them to the Sugarhouse location of the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in December.
Nearly 200 pounds of food and toys for the pet food pantry. Our students hope to keep families together with their pets through hard times.
To understand human homelessness better read Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate or The Family Under the Bridge by Natalie Savage Carlson. Or visit the Road Home website for more information about actively helping families in these situations.
