We need 30 community volunteers to help with senior board presentations on Monday, April 6, 2020, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Seniors will submit a portfolio and give a ten-minute presentation about their project. The board will rate the project according to a rubric. We will provide training, and each volunteer will serve on a board made up of teachers and volunteers. Parents are welcome to participate, although parents of seniors will not evaluate their own child’s project. This is a great opportunity for parents of younger students to get an inside view of what their student will experience when he/she becomes a senior. If you can help, please save the date and email Denise Vaardahl.
The UH Theatre program has a nice antique oval table that is in need of some major repair on the legs. If anyone is willing to invest the time and effort to repair the table, we will gladly donate it to a new home. Please contact Mrs. Pamela Wilhelm, theatre director, at (970) 506-7077 for more information.

Q: Should students be listening to music while they study or do homework?
A: Yes. An article from the Florida National University supports the use of music while studying. The catch is these studies are on music, not music videos. When listening to music while working, students can reap the benefits of reduced stress, lower test anxiety, improved focus, memory, and overall performance. Listening to classical music and not watching videos can also help students to fall asleep more easily.
We invite you to find out more about these studies on the Benefits of Studying Music page at Florida National University.
If you are planning on having a professional service such as Lyft; Uber; or Hop, Skip, and Drive pick-up your elementary or middle school students, we ask that you notify the school prior to the pickup. This allows us to assist your student as they look for their ride and would prevent any confusion by our staff as your student is getting into an unfamiliar vehicle. Your student’s safety continues to be our top priority
University Schools Security Director, Ed Clark
