Helping California!!!

Lehi Junior High will be gathering the following items to send to California on December 6th. Please bring the donations to Lehi Junior’s Student center. Our Librarian, B.J. Gurney is from Paradise, California and will be taking a moving truck full of the donations to those California on the weekend of December 6th. The following message is from Mrs. Gurney:
Friends I need your help. My school and my family are doing a fundraiser for my hometown of Paradise. Over 9,700 families (Kurt and mine included) have lost their homes. They have only what they threw in their car as they escaped the flames. Donation centers have told me that they are only collecting NEW items at this point. You will find a list of some of the items they are in need of. We are wanting to bring some toys to help the kids celebrate Christmas but we also want to bring some supplies for when these families move into their temporary homes. They have nothing to start life in their temporary home. A lot of these families were renters and didn’t have insurance. Please help however you can. If you have a business or know of one that would like to donate please let me know. All donations must be collected by Dec. 6th. Let’s show the town of Paradise how much Utah cares about them. Thank you.

We want to congratulate the Skyridge High School football team on another trip to the finals. Good luck this week.

Second quarter is passing as quickly as the leaves falling from the trees. This Thursday, November 15th, is our midterm.

Parent/Teacher Conference and Continuing the Conversation- November 15- Parent/Teacher conferences are this Thursday, November 15th from 3:30-7:00 pm. You can visit any of your teachers in that time frame. If you have general questions or concerns, please visit our FAQ table in the triangle. We want to know what we’re doing well and how you would like to see us improve. Whether you have specific ideas or just things you would like to see changed, please join us in the media center after our Parent/Teacher Conference at 7:00pm. We know that with your help we can continue to serve our students better and build the connections they need to be successful.

Our PTSA will be providing dinner for our teachers prior to conferences. If you would like to help with that, please follow this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0D44A4A82AA13-parentteacher

NAMI Mental Health Night- On November 28th, we will host a parent night with NAMI, (The National Alliance on Mental Illness), to go over basic signs and symptoms of mentall illness and conditions as well as introduce their Progression and Basics class. This is open to the community so please pass the word along.

Article- As we watch the rise in anxiety and depression among our students we continue to look for solutions. We recognize that there are not simplistic answers to this multifaceted issue. Each child facing these issues is an individual and the solution must meet their specific needs. I came across this article that I wanted to pass along. I hope to continue to work with you to help each of our children.
