We are so excited for the Apex Fun Run to begin in just a few weeks! The Apex program teaches students about leadership and fitness. From November 2nd-15th, students will learn how to become outstanding leaders by focusing each day on a different leadership quality: DREAM (Dive In, Resourceful, Elevate Others, Attitude Check, Make a Difference). And Wednesday, November 11th, is the Fun Run! Students can raise pledges for the Fun Run to raise money for the classroom and school. These two weeks are going to be a blast, and we can't wait! (More information will follow in the coming weeks.)

New Crosswalk To Be Added


In consideration for students' safety while walking to and from school, the city has decided to put in a crosswalk at the intersection of 400 S and 500 W. We are excited about this decision because we want all students to be safe traveling to school and back. Go lions!

Book Fair Drawing Winners

First, we would like to give a huge thank you to all those who participated in the book fair last week and for making it an incredible success! Since it was so successful, we were able to do a few different drawings for the teachers and students at Wilson Elementary. Congratulations to everyone who won the drawings!

The teacher who had the most students come to SEPs and bring their ticket to the book fair was Mrs. Smith, who teaches 4th grade. She won $25 towards the book fair, and from her class Victoria Perez won $10 towards the fair.

Thank You!


We would like to give a big Lion thank you to everyone who came out to Parent Teacher Conferences on Wednesday! It's always great to meet with parents and students and make goals together. We would also like to thank the PTA and all those involved in making the Book Fair so successful this week! Books are vital in life, and it was incredible to see so many students get excited about books they found at the Book Fair. Go lions!

Student Essay: The Twin Towers

Written by McKenzie Van Dam, 6th Grade

"The Twin Towers" by McKenzie Van Dam

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists took control of two U.S. inbound flights and crashed them into the two World Trade Towers located in New York City, USA. This act of terrorism took the lives of 2,996 people, including the lives of those on the planes, at the Pentagon, and the lives of the hijackers.

The terrorists belonged to a group called Al-Queda, which was led by Osama bin Laden. He claimed that the attacks came due to the presence of the U.S. military troops in Saudi Arabia and sanctions against Iraq.
