Every parent and teacher is strongly encouraged to be part of our COMPASS (formerly known as PTO, Parent Teacher Organization) meetings. Enjoy light refreshments while you get updated on all the fun things COMPASS is doing with our school to enhance our students’ educational experience. We welcome new ideas, best practices, and, of course, volunteers. Meetings are the first Wednesday of every month, alternating between morning and evening to be able to accommodate a wider variety of parent schedules. Meet other parents and eat delicious treats.
Schedule of meetings for the upcoming year:
Wednesday, May 9 at 10:30 a.m. in the school office
We want all parents to help make this inaugural year awesome!

Bonneville Academy Hometown Pizza Benefit Night!

Hometown Pizza is super-thrilled to help Bonneville Academy, so they have offered to do school pizza nights once-a-month, not for one night each month, but for TWO nights each month. You don’t have to order pizza both nights; pick the one that sounds more convenient for your family.

Monday, May 7th and Tuesday, May 8th throughout business hours: 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.

Dine-in, Carry-Out, or Delivery, just make sure you present the Bonneville Academy/Hometown Pizza half-page flier that will go home with your students on Friday, March 2nd. (Or print one by clicking HERE.)

Hometown Pizza will donate 10% of orders with flier back to Bonneville Academy’s PTO Fund. **The buffet for dine-in customers will be open during regular lunch hours from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and **Specially** re- opened from 4 p.m.-9 p.m. to accommodate our benefit night for families wanting to sample their delicious buffet.**

Talent Show Try-Outs will be held on Monday, May 7 immediately after school for both early-birds and later-gators. Applications are available in the front office. The Talent Show will be held during morning assemblies on May 21-23; the exact time and date depend on how many students audition.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is May 7-11 and COMPASS needs VOLUNTEERS to help decorate doors and show the teachers how much we appreciate them. Doors will need to be decorated no later than May 7th please. If you have any questions please email COMPASS Secretary at [email protected] or text to 801-864-4778. The windows can not be fully covered and there is paper for you to use under the stairs. Thank you for your help!

Mrs. Christensen’s class has won the Box Tops mid-year Pizza Party by turning in a whopping 503 Box Tops so far! Great news: you can send in your Coca Cola product bottle caps with codes on them from 20 oz, 1 L, or 2 L bottles or the code from the cardboard of Coca Cola 12-packs with your box tops and they will be counted towards the Box Tops class competition and earn money for our school. Remember to send in codes from Coke, Sprite, Powerade, Minute Maid, Fanta, and any other coke products as they are worth almost as much as a box top and often more than a box top.

Ongoing Opportunities to Get Money Donated to the School by Doing Things you Already Do

Start clipping those Box Tops! Collection bags that magnetically adhere to your fridge were sent home. Extra bags are in the office in the orange box tops box if you didn’t get one. Turn in box tops in the classroom collection box with student name and teacher’s name and grade on the back for our class collection competition. Leading class as of 10/18/17 gets a prize. Winning class as of December 15 gets spoiled with surprises and a class party.

A new simple way to submit! Don’t forget to install the Box Tops Bonus App on your cell phone. It helps you earn Bonus Box Tops (on top of the clipped box tops) by scanning and submitting your grocery store receipt from your phone. Our Box Tops Committee Chair, one person, earned $12 for our school in just one month from the Bonus App Receipts.

**If each family earned $5 on the Box Tops Bonus App just by scanning their receipts from their cell phone, then the school will have raised over $3,000, and that’s just for buying items you might already be purchasing.**

Our school goal is $2,000 in Box Tops this year to help fund field trips, school dances, assemblies, STEM fair, and so much more. Updates will be posted regularly.
