Cupid Descends on Herriman High School in Annual Valentine’s Day Tradition

Students led by Herriman High School’s very own “Cupid,” Paul Myers, handed out roses to all the female students and staff this Valentine’s Day. Draped in a pink suit covered in white hearts, Paul carried buckets of roses and led a group of boys from all grades through the halls to make sure everyone who wanted a rose received one. Paul spent weeks preparing for Valentines by fundraising money to buy and prepare the flowers to be handed out. Paul says he hopes others will continue this tradition that was started a few years ago by some other students at the school.

Great job to everyone who helped make Valentine’s Day a special one at Herriman High School.

No Snow Day Makeup Day for Students

Dear Parents,

There will be no makeup day for students for the snow day last week.

Last night, the Board of Education unanimously supported a plan to convert the instructional day to a professional development day for teachers. The decision will be ratified at the Board meeting on Feb. 26.

While there will be no makeup day, we want to make students and parents aware of Utah’s collection of free student online-resources provided through the Utah Education and Telehealth Network (UETN). These online resources can enhance student learning at home in a wide variety of subjects.

Utah’s Online Library provides Utah students access to research sources such as newspaper articles, magazines, professional journals, and eBooks. UETN also supports various web projects, interactive activities, and digital resources aligned to core curriculum.

To access UETN online library, go to onlinelibrary.uen.org.

Thank you.
