May Day
Summer Bridge/ Summer Reading

The annual EES May Day program will be held on Thursday, May 26th at 10:00 am. The program will be held OUTSIDE (weather permitting) at the Snow College Robert Stoddard field. The theme this year is "It's a Small World". Remember that there will be no school held the day of the program. Students should be at the football field by 9:45 am. The program should last about an hour and we'll see you there!!! We appreciate Mrs. Jodi Hansen, May Day chairman, and her committee for helping to put the program together. We appreciate the wonderful and talented teachers and students for all their time and effort. Thank you to Snow College facilities and staff who help make this program possible each year and thank you to parents for your support of EES!

Summer Bridge Workbooks are available for purchase again this year. These academic workbooks serve as a summer reading incentive program that help prevent "summer loss", strengthen academic skills, and help students return to school prepared. Students currently enrolled in kindergarten through 4th grade are eligible for the Summer Reading Reward Field Trip when we return to school in August. Any student may purchase or request a Summer Bridge Workbook OR FREE Summer Reading Packet which both focus on Math, Reading, Language Arts and Writing. 

 

Notes have been sent home to parents on how to purchase workbooks or request packets from the library. In addition to completing and returning the workbook/packet, students should read 20 minutes per day for 15 days each month (June, July, August.) To qualify for the reward field trip, a reading calendar signed by the parent must be turned in with the workbook/packet. Don't let your kids suffer "summer loss" Keep their skills up though the summer. Questions? Contact Mrs. Shauna Wayman, librarian.

We wish her the best in all her new adventures and will remember all of the special memories she has created for students and staff. She has been an amazing part of Ephraim Elementary and will surely be missed! Congratulations to Mrs. Heidi Bahlmann who has been hired as the new librarian.
