PVO Board Elections

Part of what makes Reagan Academy great is our Parent Volunteer Organization (PVO). The contributions of this organization and the volunteers they manage is immeasurable.  We have three openings on the PVO Board for the 2014-2015 school year. The positions include, president-elect (2 year position), secretary, and secretary-elect (2 year position).

Members of the PVO Board work closely with school administration to facilitate the running of school activities, organize parent volunteers, and attend monthly PVO meetings. Interested parents may send a brief summary of their background, the contribution that they feel they could make to the school, and the position that they are interested in running for to Mrs. Shade at tshade@reaganacademy.org.

April is National Poetry Month!

Mrs. Peterson has decided to host a school-wide poetry contest.  All poetry that is entered into the contest will be published in a book that will be housed in the “Reagan Academy” area of the library, where other books created by Reagan Academy students are already available to be checked out.  There will be a special place in the book reserved for winning poems.  If your child is interested in participating in the contest and in having a poem included in the 2014 Reagan Academy Poetry Book, there are two categories your child may enter. Please refer to the attached document for all contest information, rules, and permission slips.

Service Project/Walk-a-Thon for Lydia!

Our 6th grade classes are doing a service project to help a 2nd grade Reagan Academy student with the costs of her surgery and, the prosthetic that she needs after her surgery is complete. For more information about Lydia’s situation, visit  https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/px34/a-new-foot-for-lydia. The 6th grade has also placed cans in each classroom to collect any coins, change, or money that people want to donate to help Lydia. All of the money collected will go directly to Lydia’s family.

The students have also organized a walk-a-thon on Thursday, April 24th  -  2nd & 6th. To participate in the walk-a-thon please contact the office at 801-489-7828.  These students have had the opportunity to meet with Lydia and her mom and to learn more about her situation.  They have made a real connection with her and are  excited about the opportunity to serve her and her family.

Kinect Dance Company

Many of you know that Reagan Academy is one of several fortunate schools to participate in the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program. As such, we have the advantage of participating in the Kinect Dance Company assembly.
Kinect is a student outreach performance dance company from Brigham Young University, that seeks to provide student-centered, engaging, meaningful, fun, and artistic dance experiences. Kinect will be visiting our school on Tuesday, May 6 to perform.
