Hope of America Information.....

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Wed, 04/27/2016 - 12:50

Dear Parents, 

Next Wednesday, May 4th, is our Hope of America performance!  Attached is some important information for you to know.  Please read!  :)

All Military and First Responders are invited to participate in a special part that evening. The children will be singing a special tribute to you.  Please see the attached letters and respond to Sherry Anderson (  with the number of people in your family. 

Next Wednesday morning  we will be leaving from Taylor School at 9:15 to attend the dress rehearsal and will return about noon.  I will give each child their red Hope of America shirt that morning. They will take it home with them from school so they can wear it that evening.  They will need to bring sunglasses, belt and a flashlight for the dress rehearsal as well as the performance.   Please have your child to the Marriott Center at 6:15 to get in the flag formation.  There is a really fun pre-show until the performance starts and they will be selling concessions. I will be holding a poster with our school name so they can find our seats.  Our assigned seating area is section 20 & 21, rows 22, 25, & 26, enter through Portal V or W.  After the performance, I will lead the children to meet parents on the NORTHWEST corner of the patio area at approximately PORTAL T.  I will have the sign on a yardstick with our school name so you can find your child. 

Thanks for letting your child be a part of Hope of America this year!  They are a fun group of kids and its been great getting to know them.  Please contact me if you have any additional questions.

Keyboarding Championship Reminder

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Mon, 04/11/2016 - 11:25

Just a reminder for your students about the Keyboarding Championships at Spanish Fork High School. Qualifying students (those with invitations from me) should be at the high school on Wednesday beginning with registration between 3 - 3:45 pm and Round 1 starting at 4 pm. I think there are students at all my schools that could win the tournament.  Hope to see all my champions there on Wednesday.
