Wasatch Savings Campaign Wrap-Up
At last official count, 202 books were sold!!!! Wow!
Way to go! For all students who still have unsold
books, please return them tomorrow so you can
avoid having to pay for the book(s) you have kept.
They are $30 each.

Pick-Up Reminder
Dismissal-time pick-up, that 15-minute period of time
immediately upon dismissal, is at the front of the school
when students are called to their waiting rides.
All pick-up past that point is via the south gym
entrance. Students who are in ukulele club and drama
club will come down to the gym (approximately 30
minutes past regular dismissal time) and head directly to
their waiting rides. Any student whose ride is not there
will be placed in after school care. There is no additional
15-minute “window.”

ITBS Test Week – Next Week
Students in grades 3-8 will undergo the annual Iowa
Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) next week. We encourage
parents to make sure their youngsters are here every
day, on time, well-rested, and have had a nutritious
breakfast so they can be at the top of their game.
Fall Week Of Prayer – September 23-27
Week Of Prayer is daily morning chapel and always
such a blessing! Pastor Adriano Liessi will be our speaker
that first morning. Patrice Boyd will be our speaker the
rest of the week. I can promise you that you will hear
amazing stories that will both challenge and encourage
you in your life with Jesus. Guests are welcome to join us
for a week of spiritual refreshment.

Volunteer Hours
Because the “volunteer hours” is such a recently-
added, board-voted policy, we have learned that we
didn’t explain it well at the Back-to-School Night. To
answer questions and clear confusion, our board vice-
chair Hillary Schlehuber has developed an info sheet that
will explain it in depth. Please read the attached letter.

Fall Festival – October 5!
Yippee! Another of our most favorite annual school
events is just around the corner—Fall Festival! A colorful
flier, complete with order form and details, is attached.
