Internet/Social Media Safety

We will have Internet/Social Media Safety Training with our students tomorrow, November 7th. Parents are welcome to attend this with their child(ren). Please see below for the schedule.

  • 9:00 – 9:30 a.m.- Kindergarten – 2nd
  • 9:40 – 10:10 a.m. – 3rd, 4th, 5th
  • 10:20 – 11:10 a.m.- 6th, 7th, 8th

There will not be a presentation specifically for parents this year, but we will videotape the student presentations and make them available for parents to watch. Please note that you may contact Alicia Sloan, our technology teacher, if you have questions that the presentations do not answer.

Recess Snacks

Please remind your student to avoid consuming snacks that contain nuts on the playground. There are a number of students who have food allergies, of which nuts can be the most dangerous/sensitive. Although we are quite vigilant about items that contain nuts at lunch, snacks at recess are harder to govern. If a student in your child’s class has a nut allergy, please err on the side of caution, when choosing your child’s recess snack. We are not a nut free campus, however, we must be aware.

Sarah Lambert, Vice Principal

Hearing Screening

We will have hearing screening tomorrow, November 7th for students in grades K, 2, 4, 6, 8. If your student is not in that grade and you would like their hearing check, please contact the school office.

Condolences

Jenny Benton, Saint Vincent School Secretary for 12 years, recently passed away. A funeral Mass was held at St. Vincent this past weekend. Our school community extends its condolences to the Benton family and thanks Jenny for her years of service.

Thank You!

Thank you to the many helpers who came out last Saturday to rake leaves for the Carmelite Sisters. They were extremely grateful, and we appreciate the Saint Vincent Faith Formation Committee for all their work on this service project.

We also want to thank everyone who donated food to our Scare Away Hunger drive at the Halloween Carnival. We turned in 350 pounds of food to the Utah Food Bank. Amazing! A big thank you Erin Arico for making the delivery and overseeing the drive.
