Reminders & Announcements

UNIFORM CONTEST  

As the year comes to the end we would like to remind everyone that NWA requires uniforms for each scholar. Starting Monday will be having a spot uniform inspection in the classes. The first class that has everyone uniform compliant will receive a treat and will be entered into a drawing for a free dress down day and class party. 

The office will be judging and looking for these things based on guidelines from our website:

  • Uniform top-collared shirt and either flag red, navy blue, white, baby blue, butter yellow or hunter green.
  • Uniform bottoms--blue or tan--no jeans. Leggings may be worn under skirts, but not as pants. Skirts and shorts must be knee length.
  • Name badge.
  • Any jackets worn in class must be school color and no logos or embellishments.
  • Shoes must be closed toe and no lights.
  • Socks that are mid-calf or below can be any color but any socks, tights or leggings above mid-calf must be uniform color.

We encourage parents to review these rules with your scholars and send them to school ready to be rewarded for being in uniform.

END OF YEAR TESTING   

It is time for our scholars to show what they have learned over the year. We are excited to see the growth each child has made. 

SCIENCE FAIR  

We have amazing scholars at our school. George Betancourt, Genaro Melendez, Addilena Godek, Cat Miller, Isaac Wilkey, and Eleanor Woolley represented our school so well at both the UVU and BYU competitions. Congratulations for winning the BYU competition: 4th place to Cat in Engineering, 3rd place to Isaac for Product Testing/Consumer Science, and 2nd place to Eleanor in Physics/Astronomy/Math. We know scholars, with a little parent help, work hard to complete these experiments and projects. Congratulations!!

THE CHALLENGE 

Mr. Brown, Mr. Captain, and Mr. Bytheway presented the scholars with a challenge a few weeks ago in Morning Meeting. Mr. Brown challenged the others to see which grade level would have the highest numbers of scholars showing proficient on the end of year test for all subjects, English Language Arts, Math, and Science. A dunk tank was mentioned in the challenge along with the winning grade level throwing balls to dunk the teacher with the lowest proficiency scores. The scholars are excited. They all working hard to win, but more importantly show how much they know. Thanks to our teachers for being great sports. It will be fun to see who wins!!
