Notes and News: 
Character Trait: Perseverance
Perseverance: Perseverance is the ability and self-control that pushes you to work through challenges. Try one of these activities with your family:
Try, Try, Try Again! Materials: None
Discuss this quote from Thomas Edison: “I never failed once when I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2,000-step process.” Consider how different life might be today if Mr. Edison had chosen to quit after his first few attempts to invent the light bulb. As a family write your own quotes for perseverance, and post for everyone to see.
I Think I Can, I Think I Can… Materials: Story of “The Little Engine that Could”
After reading the story of The Little Engine That Could
When we encounter something hard we can repeat the phrase “I think I can, I think I can”.   With perseverance they can do anything!
Attendance Reminder:
“School only gets harder when you stay home too much. Sometimes it’s tempting to stay home because you’ve got too much work or you don’t understand what’s going on in class. But missing a day only makes that worse.” –Mrs. B. Jones
Fundraiser and Donations
This year, we will use the funds for upgrading our school marquee, school safety improvements, and technology for the classrooms.  Our fall fundraiser raised about $3,000.  The front door safety improvements and marquee will cost over $10,000.  If you would like to donate to our three projects, you can use the donate button on our school website http://eaglevalley.alpineschools.org/.
School T-Shirts
The women’s cut t-shirts did not arrive with the first shipment of shirts. The youth sweatshirts had some defects while printing and are being redone.  We will get the shirts handed out as soon as they arrive.
Box Tops
Our box top contest ends this week! The class with the most box tops will be rewarded with a hot chocolate party from the PTA! Remember to send your box tops!
Stakeholders Input
Each year we seek feedback to reflect on and improve our practice.  Please take a few minutes and provide feed back to the teachers that work with your children. Thank you to those of you that left feedback at Parent Conferences.
Thank you!
Healthy Eagle Valley Elementary
Our school was selected as one of 500 school across the nation to participate in the FLUency Kinsa program.  Each family that registers gets a free thermometer and ongoing tips to keep your family healthy through the Flu season.
The Kinsa FLUency program is now live for our school!  This program will keep our school healthier by:
  • Giving each family a FREE Smart Thermometer
  • Showing all families “what’s going around” for preventative care
  • Reducing sick days through early detection and increased awareness
The more families that participate, the more successful the program will be in keeping our students healthier throughout this flu season.
Signing up for the program is as easy as 1,2,3:
  1. Download the FREE Kinsa app for iOS or Android
  2. Create profiles for anyone in your family
  3. Go to “Groups” and search for our school using our location.  Join our school group.
We are excited and proud to be chosen for this exclusive program and look forward to a healthier flu season this year!
Note from company: Unfortunately, Kinsa thermometers do not work on every single smartphone on the market. If you received the notice, your phone is one with which the Kinsa thermometer does not work. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but the great news is that the best features of Kinsa are actually in the app that you’re using! You can use the app to track symptoms for each of your children, and participate in our school group to help keep all of our students healthier this year.
Red Ribbon Week (sponsored by PTA)
October 25th-28th
Red Ribbon Week will be held October 25-28th as the students of Eagle Valley Elementary celebrate their commitment to stay Drug Free! The theme this year is You Only Live Once (YOLO): Be Drug Free!
As part of our pledge to help our children understand the importance of staying away from illegal and dangerous substances, we encourage all parents to read and apply these guidelines:
-As parents and citizens, we will talk to our children and the children in our lives about the dangers of drug abuse.
-We will set clear rules for our children about not using drugs.
-We will set a good example for our children by not using illegal drugs or medicine without a prescription.
-We will monitor our children’s behavior and enforce appropriate consequences, so that our rules are respected.
-We will encourage family and friends to follow the same guidelines to keep children safe from substance abuse.
During Red Ribbon Week we will have a daily theme to remind us of our commitment to be drug free:
Tuesday: You Only Live Once, support being drug free! Wear red!
Wednesday: Use your head, don’t do drugs! Wear a silly hat or have crazy hair!
Thursday: Turn your back on drugs! Wear your shirt backwards or inside out today!
Friday: Eagle Valley Elementary is drug free! Wear your school colors!
The classes with the most participation will earn a prize so be sure to remind your children to dress up each day! Thank you for your help as we support the amazing futures of our children by staying drug free!
Halloween Dress Code and Parade
As you start to prepare Halloween costumes, please remember for the school portion of the day, the following guidelines apply:
-school dress code rules must be followed (leggings and t-shirts are great)
-students must arrive to school in costume there will not be time for changing
-avoid extreme gore and violent costumes
-no weapons
-no masks or full face paint
If you are coming to view the parade, we ask that you follow the guidelines above if you come dressed in a costume.  Due to recent events in the news, we are also asking that you do not dress as a clown.  We will have all parents enter the gym to view the parade through the outside gym doors.  There will be chairs set up and the classes will parade through the maze of chairs.  Parents will need to remain in the gym for the entire parade and then exit out the outside gym doors at the end of the parade.  If you will be volunteering in a classroom later that day, please check in at the office when you arrive to volunteer.

4th-6th Grade Mock Election-PTA Event (Brittany Gifford (PTA Legislative VP))
We are excited to have a mock election this year for our upper grades (4th-6th). PTA thought it would be both educational and fun to do an election to see how our students’ votes compare to the general election results.
We will have real voting booths (we are borrowing from the city), registration, and “I voted” stickers too! All the candidates that will be listed on the Utah ballot for president will be listed on the school ballot in alphabetical order. We hope this will be a great experience for the kids to see how the voting system works. Student council will help count the votes and make announcements with the winners on Monday, November 7th.  We will then compare our results with that of the national election on November 8th.
