Student Council Helps the children at Shriner's Hospital
Our wonderful Student Council recently sponsored a drive to collect movies and games for the children who are in Shriner's Hospital. The drive was very successful and the students really enjoyed the tour they received in return for their gifts. We are grateful for the support of our community that helped make this donation possible.

New State Program to Help Prevent Child Abuse
Did you know that Utah has the highest percentage of sexual abuse cases in our nation?! Did you know that people over 18 are obligated by law to report suspected abuse? These and other facts, and what to do about them, are included in a new program for parents, all school personnel, and anyone that regularly works with youth groups. It is a very clear and concise guide to the types of abuse, how to recognize them, and what to do if you suspect an abuse situation. Take a look here: https://pcau.enspark.com/login/pcau/
It's every adult's responsibility to end child abuse.
