JOIN US FOR A HOLIDAY IN THE SUN!
The next PEAK offering is a dance and gymnastics camp with a beach theme! Students (girls and boys) will learn different dance styles and basic gymnastic moves as well as a small routine that they will perform during half time of the boys' varsity basketball game on February 3. This camp is open to students grades K - 7 and will meet on January 16, 18, 23, 25, 26, 30, February 1 and 2.  I hope you can join us for some fun in the sun!

PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES
Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Tuesday, January 24, from 3:30-6:30 P.M., by appointment. These conferences have been scheduled at the request of teachers or parents.  Letters have been sent to confirm appointment times. Please contact the school office ASAP if the times do not work with your schedule and we will do our best to reschedule your appointment. 

SMITHSONIAN DINNER AND PIE AUCTION
The annual Smithsonian fundraising dinner and pie auction will be held Friday, January 27, when the Rivals play host to the Box Elder Bears.  The Smithsonian students have planned a pulled pork dinner along with sides and a brownie ice cream sundae dessert beginning at 5:00 P.M.  The pie auction will commence immediately following the boys varsity contest.  As the date gets closer, please stay tuned to the weekly bulletin for further updates.  We hope to see you there and are forever grateful for the support our community provides to allow our students to take this once in a lifetime trip!

SMITHSONIAN SILENT AUCTION
The annual Smithsonian silent auction is Friday, February 10.  Just in time for Valentine's Day, the Smithsonian students will have baskets prepared that will be available for bid in a silent auction.  Bidding on Valentine's Day baskets will occur throughout the evening, so we hope to see you there in support of our seniors in their senior night, the Rivals on the basketball floor, and our Smithsonian students as they prepare for a journey to the Eastern Seaboard in March of 2018.  Thank you for your support!
