Spirit Wear

We will place one more red hoodie order (with or without the heart made from student names), if enough people are interested. The cost will be between $28-$35, depending on how many people order. Please contact the school office by Friday, February 8th if you would like to order one. If we do not get enough responses, then we will not place an order because the cost will be too high. Thank you!

Congratulations Kindergarten!

Congratulations to Elyse Reiser and the Kindergarten class! The class was chosen as a winner in the Studenttreasures Publishing process. The class created a book that was about being Safe, Kind, and Helpful!

Lego League

The “Llamas in Space” made a great showing at their first-ever First Lego League (FLL) State Finals at Weber State University.

The all-day event pitted our “Llamas in Space” team against 50 other winning teams from across the state. Three judged interview sessions and three rounds of autonomous robot challenges meant for a long day of heavy “Coopertition®” as part of FLL’s foundation of good sportsmanship and the focus on the journey and learning.

The judged interviews are not publicly ranked against other teams; making them a challenge to improve upon the teams’ internal goals, reaching for the best possible rankings judges can provide. Robot challenge scores are shown throughout the day on the large scoreboard. Our team proved strong, with positive rankings across all judged areas; and came out 15th of all 50 teams with the Robot Challenge itself.

We’re so proud of this team representing us at the State Finals – please watch for our Regional Champs award to show up in the trophy case soon!
The “Llamas in Space” (in alphabetical order): Rylan Arico (6th), Jazmin Asmar (7th), Valery Carnes (4th), Dominic Fedor (6th), Zach Johnson (6th), Lucinda Larrabee (7th), Max Ripko (5th)

Momo Challenge

Please beware of a social media trend called the “Momo Challenge.” It is aimed at children and young adults. We have not received any reports of the Momo Challenge with any of our students, but wanted to make you aware so that you can be vigilant with your children as they use technology. The objective of this challenge is to use social media and video games such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and Minecraft to encourage children and young adults to commit dangerous and potentially violet actions towards themselves and others. Momo, a ghoulish-looking avatar, has cyber bullied and threatened children and young adults across the world, including the United States. So far the challenge has been linked to a handful of suicide cases.

Everything about this challenge happens through communication. Initially, the receiver is asked to perform small tasks that gradually build into acts of violence, including self-harm, and requests photo proof that the receiver carried out the act. When a task is refused by the receiver, Momo threatens the children and young adults with personal information, will leave disturbing messages, and sends violent images.

Please also be aware that the SafeUT website or mobile app is a great tool to submit a tip and/or speak to a crisis counselor directly, if someone begins to converse with or feel threatened by Momo.

If you have any questions about this “Momo Challenge” or other cyberbullying, please feel free to contact Mr. Green (ggreen@stvincents-school.org) or Mrs. Lambert (slambert@stvincents-school.org).

*Thanks to Patrick Lambert for his help in creating this message.

No School

This is a quick reminder that there is no school, including Extended Day, on Monday, February 18th in observance of Presidents’ Day.

Art Show

Please stop by the school gym during Parent/ Teacher Conferences, February 7th and 8th. Art created by our students will be on display for all to enjoy.

This year during Parent/Teacher Conferences, you will be able to order cards (that you can use for invitations, thank you’s, etc.) that have been designed by your child(ren). Brooke Gaztambide, our art teacher, worked on this project with the students. The teachers will show parents this art work during conferences, and will also provide you with an order form. Order forms are due to the office by Friday, February 8.

Spelling Bee

Our annual spelling bee will be Friday, February 8th at 10:15 in the school gym. All are welcome to attend.

Lost and Found

Please take time to look through our school Lost and Found. Our collection of items is growing rapidly. You may stop by the office to view. We will also have these items displayed during Parent/Teacher Conferences.

Girls on The Run

Registration is now open for Girls on the Run!!! Girls on the Run is a transformational, physical activity based, positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. The program will run from March 11th until June 1st. Practices will be held at St Vincent on Tuesdays from 3:30-5:15. Please visit girlsontherunutah.org for more information and to register.

Also, we are looking for volunteers to help with practice. Please contact Alli Gardner if you are interested at allimgardner@gmail.com.
