FOSSIL RIDGE INTERMEDIATE SPOTLIGHT
**HAPPY BIRTHDAY MRS. EMETT...October 31st**
Congratulations to the "Get Your Brain On" students for the Week of
October 24th-28th...BE EXCELLENT!
Last Week the Fossil Ridge Trimester Choir, Beginning Band, Show Choir, and
Intermediate Band Students performed at our Fall Concert. Our Students were
absolutely fantastic! Thank You's go out to Mrs. Sheeran and Mr. Nielsen for all
their hard work getting our students prepared and confident for the performance!
Fossil Ridge students earned some awards last week...The Washington Country and
State of Utah Freedom Poetry Contest, and even had a visit from Mayor Pike to
talk about the importance of Reading with our students..."Fossil Ridge Reads & Writes"
FOSSIL RIDGE PROFESSIONAL LEARNING
As we begin the month of November, I wanted to focus our Professional Learning topic
this month on the power of PURPOSE, in essence "why we do what we do."
As educators we all believe in being a school full of PURPOSE, PASSION, and
EXCELLENCE, but the question is "WHY?" Why are we here? Why do we believe
what we do? Why do we do what we do? and Why do we continue forward in the
pursuit of perfection? Take a look at the following and may all of us at Fossil
Ridge take time to reflect.
"It All Starts With "Why" (Simon Sinek. TED Talk.)
"Know Your Why" (Michael Jr. YouTube) ...shared by Mrs. Brackett
"Importance of Knowing Who You Are" (Solution Tree Blog. Geri Parscale)
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
BE EXCELLENT :)
