COOKIE DOUGH FUNDRAISER
We have learned that the cookie dough will be delivered to our school on Wed., Dec. 2nd sometime before 2:00pm. We had hopes that it would arrive before Thanksgiving Break, but the company informed us it will not be making any deliveries the week of Thanksgiving. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.>>
If we receive the cookie dough early enough in the day on the 2nd, we will plan to send it home with as many students as possible. For those that will not be able to take the cookie dough home at the end of the school day, we would ask that parents come pick up their student's orders between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m.
THE GIVING TREE
THE GIVING TREE is ready with its"ornaments". (Each ornament will list a gift
request for someone in our school or community that is in need of a little
extra help this season.) There will be lots of "ornaments" and
we encourage our able families to participate. There is such joy found in
giving and doing for others, for kids and adults alike.
3rd-6th Grade FREEDOM CHOIR :
If your 3rd-6th grader is interested in signing up for the Freedom Elementary Choir, it is not too late. They can join the choir practice this afternoon, 1:15-2:15 in the main kiva. Students will be fitted for their choir vest. A vest exchange will also be held at 2:15.
Freedom Elementary needs Volunteers
SAVE THE DATE:

great performance! DVD's will be avaiable for purchase. More info to come home later.
We are looking for a few individuals interested in being on our school's Community Council. Please join us at 4:00 pm in the school library.
SCHOOL LUNCH ACCOUNTS:
Our goal to bring all lunch accounts current continues. Please view your child's account balance by logging in or creating a portal account at https://myweber.wsd.net . If you find that your child has a negative balance, you may make your payment in the lunchroom, in the office, or online at https://myschoolfees.com.
Anyone with a continued negative balance may receive a phone call from their student, a notice sent home with the amount owed, and may also be subject to collection action. If you have questions or need further assistance please contact lunch manager, Lynette Howard immediately at 801-452-4110. Thank you.
LOST AND FOUND
The Lost and Found bin in the cafeteria is currently overflowing. Please take a moment during Parent/Teacher Conferences to look for items your student may have left here since our last parent/teacher conferences. Larger items will be in the main kiva and smaller items will be in the office. Any items not claimed will be donated to a charity.
With the weather turning cold and the snow coming in, it becomes very difficult to change the information on our outside marquee. With so many other ways to get information out to
parents and students, we have determined to avoid using the marquee during the winter
months. Please refer to our school's website, magnetic calendar, newsletters, text messages,
and/or mass emails for uncoming events and important information. If you have questions
about accessing these other methods, please contact the office at 801-452-4100.
As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure student safety at Freedom Elementary we are requiring identification for all visitors. Upon checking in at the office please be prepared to show photo identification.
