Administrators gather at the district office for a state-required Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling (LETRS) training. The intent is to gain a deeper understanding of why students struggle to learn to read. Elementary teachers, including preschool, have also been involved in professional learning as they focus on evidence-based instruction with proven outcomes.

Students at Fiddlers Canyon Elementary commemorate 9/11. Principal Michelle Hall said she recognizes that students are too young to have witnessed that solemn day in history, but it's important for them to still remember. Enoch Elementary Principal Dan Ekker spoke of patriotism and what it means to him. He shared memories of his own father standing tall and saluting the flag. He encouraged students to do the same whenever they see the flag and to also thank the many who sacrifice so much for the country.

This year, every school in Iron County School District will be offering free period products in girls’ bathrooms in compliance with recent legislation (H.B. 162). Donated period product dispensers have been installed and will provide high-quality, organic, dignified products for students at no cost. We know that 4 out of 5 girls have missed class, or know someone who has, due to lack of access to period products. Providing these products will allow them to learn, play, and thrive without worry. Parents or guardians are responsible for discussing the need for and proper use of period products with their children. Information has been compiled by the state, and can be accessed at https://5il.co/1hln4 and https://5il.co/1hln5.

It was a sea of pink in the Canyon View High School gym Thursday night. The annual match up between the Cedar Reds and Canyon View Falcons volleyball teams did not disappoint as the two teams united to raise money for a community cancer patient. In the end, Cedar won the match, but both were victorious in raising money for Carrie Norton, who is currently battling cancer. Proceeds from ticket sales, a silent auction and more will be donated to Norton and her family.
