Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!! It is so great to have our water reserves replenished! We have had so many wonderful students make some pretty awesome accomplishments. Please visit our school Instagram and see many great posts about our students.
Please make note of the following:
1. Parent Teacher Conference and Community Information Night
Mark your calendars for February 22nd from 3:30 PM – 7 PM. Come meet with teachers, shop in our school store, visit colleges and the military. There will be community resources and food trucks!
2. Walking at Graduation
The Utah Board of Education has voted to uphold the pre-pandemic standards that students must complete ALL graduation requirements to “walk” at graduation. Graduation will be held this year on May 25th. All required credits must be completed before then. Check missing credits by going to Skyward and on the far left click on graduation requirements. Once there you will see a column titled Remaining. Whatever is listed in red is what is still outstanding.

3. GPA/ ACT Scholarships
Many universities offer automatic scholarships (as well as admission standards) based on a combination of GPA and SAT/ACT score. New student scholarships are awarded based on the cumulative unweighted GPA or ACT/SAT score. Students are automatically considered for scholarships when the admissions application is complete before the deadline. There are a limited number of President’s scholarships that will be awarded after a comprehensive review.
