Enoch Elementary

Enoch Elementary students have been busily preparing for end of year programs. Watch for information coming home from teachers about these events. Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week at our school. The PTA has worked hard all year to provide teachers with tokens of appreciation and the Enoch Elementary faculty would like to acknowledge their efforts. Our PTA goes above and beyond to help our school function and enjoy amazing opportunities. We recently had a Penny War competition and families were so supportive. It was a huge success. The Battle of The Books competition is coming up soon. Students should be reading the books on the lists and preparing for the battle against South Elementary.  This is a fun, intense competition and the students at our school, work hard all year long to prepare. End of year testing is in full swing at Enoch Elementary and attendance is crucial. 

South Elementary 

Thank you Cedar City Rotary Club! The Cedar City Rotary Club gave South Elementary's music classes a big boost with the donation of 275 recorders to be used by the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. The students will now learn how to read music and play an instrument.  Thank you Rotary Club for helping provide this opportunity for our students. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders had a great time at the Bard's Birthday Bash sponsored by the Utah Shakespearean Festival.  Students participated in period activities and learned about William Shakespeare's works. The second grade classes also learned about fire safety at a trip to the fire station and fire safety house. Thank you Cedar City Fire Department for teaching us how to be safe in the event of a fire.

Canyon View High School

CVHS PTSA is excited to announce April's Falcon's Finest award recipients. These youth have set themselves apart by being excellent citizen students. They help CVHS be a better community.  These students are known for “springing” into action to do the right thing for themselves and others.  We would like to congratulate Kaylee Hillyard & Emmett Shakespear (9th grade), Payden Dalton & Braeley Bauer (10th grade), Matthew Bench & Hannah Mendenhall (11th grade), and Brady Bauer & Cason Maxwell(12th grade).  They each have received a nice certificate and movie gift card to Fiddler’s 6 Theater. Way to go!

Three Peaks Elementary

Congratulations to the students in Debbie Harding's 1st grade class, Wendi Fuson's 2nd grade class, Susan Parker's 2nd grade class, and Liz Jones' 2nd grade class for their excellent performances of Shakespeare's plays at the Bard's Birthday Bash and for the school performances.  A special thank you to these teachers for the time taken for rehearsals and costumes. We would like to remind parents to take their children to the 13th Annual Kite Flight for Reading and Sight activities held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 10 am-3 pm at the Cedar Middle School fields. All who turn in their completed reading chart will receive a choice of a kite, books, and movie passes and will be eligible for other drawings. The amount of reading charts turned in from Three Peaks Elementary students determines how much of the proceeds from this event go to our school. Help out the school by attending this fun and action-packed event.

First, second, and third grade students were excited to visit the Cedar City Aquatic Center on April 28.  They had a tremendous time swimming, playing, and sliding down the slide.  Thank you to the city for providing this great facility for our community to use.

On May 2, the first grade classes traveled to Snow Canyon State Park.  They had the opportunity to explore the varied landscapes - white cliffs, red sandstone outcrops and black lava deposits - while on a hike with a park ranger.  The students also learned about the Mojave Desert vegetation and wildlife. What a wonderful world we live in to be able to explore nature so close to home.

East Elementary

East second graders spent a morning learning about safety this week at Cedar City Fire Station #1. The Cedar City Police Department taught them about bicycle safety, the Department of Natural Resources taught about wildland fire safety, and the Gold Cross Ambulance crew let them tour the inside of an ambulance. The students were treated to a tour of the fire station,

and all of the amazing equipment. A dispatcher spoke about the proper use of 9-1-1, and the students were taught what to do if they encountered a gun. The highlight of the field trip was going into the Life Safety House where they learned all about fire safety at home, how to escape a fire, and the importance of having a fire escape plan. Thanks to those organizations for all of their help and support.
