Dear families of Granite Park students,
What a great week we had last week! We enjoyed Spirit Week activities each day and had a fun celebration activity for the house that showed the most spirit during the week. On Thursday night, some 8th grade students enacted a Mock Trial at the South Salt Lake City courthouse and did a great job.
November was a great month with our Veterans Day production, our school providing reverence for Granite School District’s Board meeting, and the successful showing of our school play.
We are looking forward to great things also happening in December, outlined in our calendar below.
-Wednesday December 4th: We will be featured as Fox 13’s “Cool School of the Week.” The segments will air at 7:45, 7:15, 8:15, 8:45, 9:15 and 9:45 that morning, highlighting different aspects of our amazing school.
-Basketball season is during the month of December. Our boys and girls teams will compete against other schools at 3:00 on December 2nd, 4th, 9th, 11th, 16th, and 18th.
-On Wednesday December 18th our Dance students, Band, Orchestra, and Choir students will be performing twice. The first performance will be during a school assembly from 10:15-11:15. Then they will perform again that evening for admission at 6:30. That same day prior to the evening performance, there will be our semi-annual student Art Show starting at 4:00.
-Thursday December 19th we will have our annual staff versus student basketball game assembly at 1:45.
-Friday December 21st at 5:00 we will have our annual family dinner at Granite Park. Teachers and their families come with students and their families to share a meal together. There will be live music, games, and Santa!
