Parking Reminders

NO PARKING in the Mormon Temple parking lot! We are aware that it can be difficult to find parking when you are in a hurry. However, only our teachers are permitted to park in the Mormon Temple lot, and we could lose this privilege if it is abused. Please take the time to find another spot!

NO PARKING in the red zones! This is so important for the safety of our children. When cars are parked in the red zones (even if you are waiting in your car) it is impossible for drivers to see who might be walking across the street. Please don’t be the cause of a tragedy by parking in any of the red zones around school.

After School Literacy Enrichment Club

The After-School Literacy Enrichment Club will be an after-school program designed to help improve the reading comprehension skills of students in Kindergarten and 1st grade. Picture books and short stories will be read to the students by our 7th and 8th grade club monitors, and students will be encouraged to read to their peers as well.

Sessions will take place on Wednesdays from 2:45 – 3:30 p.m. in the Media Center (library). Please see below for an informational flyer and the sign up link.
