Spring Break

This year we have 26 students going to Spain. Unfortunately, two of those students are unable to come with us. That means we have the chance to give two students the opportunity to come with us to participate in this life changing experience. The requirements include a valid passport, $2,500, and an interview (parents and student) with Mrs. Campbell. If you are interested, please contact me by email ( as soon as possible. Thank you!

Please join us for this fun night of painting to help support our students going to Spain, May 6th at 5:00 pm in the Secondary Gym.   If you want to attend register at this link:

Mrs. Campbells eye update: This morning I underwent a second surgery to reattach my retina. I should recover quicker this time because the procedure was less evasive. I will be on reduced activity when Spring Break is over but can be reached at anytime by email. Have a great spring break and enjoy your family adventures!

Calendar 2017-18:
The 2017-18 Calendar has been board approved and is posted on the school website at Students are returning to school on August 21, 2017 and the calendar is patterned after both Ogden and Weber School District Calendars.

S.A.G.E. Testing 2017:
The week of April 3-7 is Spring Break. When we return in April, the SAGE testing window opens. It is important that students understand testing is a measure of their understanding this year. Testing helps teachers solidify instructional practices that work for future students, it provides a starting point for individual student growth next year, and it lets students prove themselves by sharing all they have learned. We value the data provided by student testing, we celebrate hard work and the level of learning achieved each year and we do not use it to discourage learning of teachers or students.  If you have any questions about SAGE testing, please use your teachers as a resource or the SAGE portal at . Encourage students to do their best and celebrate the hard work of another year.
