Always Hard to Say Goodbye

Steve Stockton, one of the Snowflake Unified School District custodians, has retired. He gave 27 years of service, always with a smile and 110 percent. Steve was honored with a plaque at the June 13, 2019, board meeting. We are extremely sad to see him go but wish him and his family the very best in their new endeavors.

Native American Dance Presentation

Mr. Brinton's 6th grade class had two students that were willing to share their heritage and skills with the whole school. They came to do a presentation of their Native American dance for their class, but word spread and they ended up doing the dance for the whole school in the gym. Chance and Arena Dixon dance almost every weekend during school, and this summer they will be dancing at the following places:

  • Monday through Thursday in Holbrook at Gillespie Park from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
  • June 27 at Pioneer Park in Snowflake for Thursday Night at the Park
  • June 29 and June 30 at the first annual Sunrise Mountain Pow Wow

We are very proud and appreciate them sharing their skills with the school.

After we handed out awards, our student council drew names from the PAWS-itive tickets that the students earn throughout the year. Students get these tickets for above and beyond behavior or acts of kindness. There were about 40 prizes. Then, the computer randomly picked names from the whole student body for the top 16 prizes. No one left empty-handed as the student council gave out candy bars to those that didn't get a prize. It was a great end of the year assembly and ending for the school year. We will miss those 6th graders that are moving on to the junior high, but we are looking forward to the group of 3rd graders coming to our school next year. We also completed bulletin boards with all the pictures for the year.
