Dear Parents,

When you think of vocational opportunities for students, you might go straight to our incredible woodworking and welding programs. Vocational programs have developed extensively over the years and there are many opportunities offered by our schools which extend beyond our wood and welding shops. It might surprise you to know that CTE courses now include photography, accounting, marketing, computer coding, web design, architectural design, interior design, Cybercorp, and more. Interscholastic programs such as FFA, FCCLA, DECA allow students to take their skills and interests to competition and network with other students at state and national levels. Along with these opportunities, high school students can pursue work-related internships and work experiences for credit. Providing expanded choices can be challenging for a district our size, but we are continually working to investigate our options. To make all this happen, we depend on the coordinated effort of our Regional CTE Director, our dedicated counselors, administration, and of course our talented teachers. February is the month to recognize their efforts.  I am grateful for their work and commitment.

 

The North Sanpete High School musical, The Hunchback of Norte Dame, begins the week of February 23rd.  Plan to come and watch these talented students perform. My thanks to these students and leaders for their months of hard work. Watch for more information and instructions for obtaining your ticket. 


There are many activities taking place around the district. To stay connected to the upcoming events and to join in the many celebrations, check school calendars and social media sites. Congratulations to our NSHS athletes and Interscholastic teams for their success this season.


The district will continue to offer COVID testing for students and staff.  You can find more information on our website under COVID Testing Calendar. Principals now have the ability to test at their school if needed and our nurses are available throughout the week if you have questions. Please contact your student’s school or the district office to leave a message for a nurse and they can return your call.


If you get a minute, please offer your appreciation to our school counselors. We are fortunate to have seven school counselors that work in our elementary, middle school and high schools. Their work with students is invaluable.


This week’s challenge…. wave and smile at our school bus drivers as you pass them on the road. My thanks to each of these skilled drivers for getting our students to school safely.  


There is no school for students February 18th or President’s Day, February 21st.


I appreciate all the feedback from our parent community and hope that you continue to stay connected to your student’s school, to the district, and to each other. Please be mindful of your neighbors and those individuals that may be struggling.  We are part of a strong and resilient community. Thank you for taking care of each other.


Take care,
Nan
