Kids Expo

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Beginning January 22th our students will be doing the Kids Expo during lunch, which is where they create a product and sell it to the other students. As a 6th grade, they decided they want to sell “Kidz Fizz.” This will basically be Sprite or Cream Soda with flavored syrup in it like a Fiiz drink.Together, the kids will be advertising for their product, making up a slogan, selling it, and then deciding what to do with the profit. If at all possible, we’d like to ask the parents to donate some supplies for our products, and/or sign up to volunteer to help the kids run the booth. J

We are in need of:


1) Soda pop–Sprite and/or Cream Soda

2) 8 oz. plastic cups

3) Flavored Syrups

4) Ice


We will greatly appreciate any donations made!


You can sign up to donate/volunteer here:


Thank you so much,


6th grade team

Holiday Shoppe

Dear parents,

The HighMark Holiday Shoppe is coming!  On Monday, December 4 – Thursday, December 7, our Holiday Shoppe will be up and running. The HighMark Holiday Shoppe will be set up in the Commons with a variety of gifts for the whole family. Gift prices start at .35 cents and up.  Each elementary class has been scheduled a 30 minute “private shopping” time.  Ms. Shore’s class will be doing their shopping on Tuesday, December 5, from 9:45 – 10:15 am.  In addition to the “private shopping” appointments, the Holiday Shoppe will be open before and after school, during lunches, and during the Winter Carnival.


The Holiday Shoppe gives your student a chance to purchase secret Christmas gifts for the whole family and their friends.  Gift wrapping is included so gifts will be able to go straight from school to under the Christmas tree!  The students are so excited to be able to make these purchases secretly and surprise their family!


The Shoppe provides an excellent lesson in money and budgeting. This week your student will be bringing home a Holiday Shoppe flyer and budget envelope.  If you would like your child to participate in the gift shopping, please take a few minutes to sit with your child and budget out how much he/she can spend on each family member and friend and fill out the envelope (Please use cash. We cannot give change back for checks).  Teachers and parent volunteers will help your child stick with their budget and make their purchases.  The gifts come in a variety of prices to accommodate all budgets, starting at .35 cents, with the majority of gifts in the $1.00 to $5.00 range and up to $20.  Thirty percent of sales will be donated to Highmark 9th graders attending the New York business trip to help offset some of the cost.


This is also a great opportunity to get some volunteer hours and help run the Shoppe. If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions about the HighMark Holiday Shoppe, please email Rochelle Krizek at  Thank you!

Wednesday’s Field Trip

Image result for field trip clipart


This Wednesday is our first 6th grade field trip. We will be leaving the school at 9:00, so please have your students at school by that time. We are expected to arrive at the University of Utah at 9:30. At that point, the students will get a tour of the campus (please wear comfortable shoes and a jacket) and will rotate through different workshops where they will learn about campus life, astronomy, and so forth.
Students will need to bring their own lunch (please don’t have them pack something that needs to be heated up!) and utensils. It would also be a good idea to bring a backpack in order to carry their lunch.
We will arrive back at the school at 2:00. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Mrs. Shore

Field Trip Volunteers

Next Wednesday is our first field trip, and we’re in need of a few volunteers! We will need 3-4 volunteers from each class, and you’ll be able to stay with your student the whole time. You will need to meet us down at the University of Utah at 9:30 and it will last until 1:30. You will basically be a chaperone for the students as they go throughout the activities.
It will be first come, first serve for volunteers. Please let me know if you have any questions. :)
