Come one, come all!! Join us for the 25th annual Weber State University Storytelling Festival, February 22-March 18, 2021. This year, our award-winning festival commemorates its 25th anniversary with a virtual event presenting “Tales to Remember: 25 Stories in 25 Days”. That right, the festival opens on 22 February, and we present new stories each day for 25 days!! We will feature performances by nationally and internationally acclaimed storytellers, plus many regional and youth tellers! Because of the move to a virtual format due to Covid-19 restrictions, more people will be able to participate from a wider geographic base. Throughout the state of Utah and anywhere people can access the internet, audiences will be treated to some of the finest entertainment imaginable. Each day during the festival, new links will come ‘live’, featuring youth, regional and/or national tellers!

Congratulations, Seniors! You're on the cusp of achieving one of life's outstanding accomplishments. High school diplomas will soon be in-hand! You're kind of a big deal! With that said, we acknowledge that this is an unprecedented, uncertain, emotional, and bittersweet time. We are all adjusting to a new normal. The world has been turned upside down by a pandemic virus (COVID-19) which health officials warn is easily spread and may result in serious illness or death. Beloved rites of passage for the Class of 2020 have had to be canceled, postponed, or drastically modified to ensure public safety. We sincerely acknowledge the sense of loss many of you may be feeling as a result. It's okay to be a little sad and disappointed. We applaud, however, the valiant efforts you are making to remain optimistic and complete graduation requirements via remote learning.
The American poet, Maya Angelou, once said, "You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it." Angelou's wise words remind us of one of life's greatest lessons: Difficulties strengthen our ability to overcome. We believe in each of you and your ability to do difficult things. Keep your eyes on the prize. The best is yet to come!
We are in continual contact with state/local government and health officials, and it has become evident that we will not be able to safely facilitate traditional graduation ceremonies for our high schools on scheduled days/times in May. With a public health order in place discouraging non-essential travel, promoting the practice of physical distancing, and not allowing social/group gatherings greater than ten people, it has become necessary to create a modified graduation plan to celebrate the Class of 2020.
In a recent letter from Governor Gary Herbert to local school districts, he stated, "As the Class of 2020 prepares for one of the defining moments of any generation, high school graduation, it is up to all of us to ensure these students receive the recognition they have earned in as safe an environment as possible. We appreciate your efforts in planning for a virtual format, suspending formal ceremonies until it is deemed safe, or a combination of both. We acknowledge that you are working hard to make these decisions based on community safety, while trying to honor the students in a special way."
Each high school will facilitate a Virtual (online) Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2020 on Friday, May 29, 2020. Each event will be recorded and video streamed. A link to access the commencement program will be provided as we get closer to the specified date. Seniors, you will be invited to participate in your school's virtual ceremony in a meaningful and memorable way! More in-depth details will be forthcoming from each high school.

Officials at each high school plan to facilitate a "Class of 2020 Celebration" when protective mandates have been lifted and allow for large group gatherings. These events will likely take place outdoors, sometime in the late summer or early fall. Graduated seniors and parents will be invited back to the school to interact with each other, teachers, counselors, support staff members, coaches/advisors, and administrators and enjoy a celebration of this year's amazing Class of 2020.
It is very important to us that our district's seniors know that we are deeply saddened that we must modify the traditional graduation ceremony experience; however, we all acknowledge that the health and safety of each member of our community is the top priority. We will work very hard to creatively provide two, separate and meaningful events to honor the accomplishments and sacrifices of our seniors! We strongly believe that there will never be a graduating class like the Class of 2020. You're a special and gritty group, and you're showing us all how to courageously move through adversity. We are extremely proud of each of you! Keep moving forward!
All the best,

Ms Smith FACS class at Orion Jr have been making seatbelt covers for cancer patients…The idea was inspired by one of Ms. Smith students who has a friend with cancer. The cancer patients favorite item that helped her through her treatments was a selt beltcover for the Chemo ports. The covers prevent the seatbelts from rubbing against the ports. The ports are very sensitive. All covers made will be donated to local hospitals for cancer patients.
Weber High School’s Koby Pack takes 1st place at FBLA National Leadership Conference
Competing in San Antonio, Texas among 12,000 students in over 70 categories, Koby Pack, a Weber High student brought home 1st Place and the title of National Champion in the Sales Presentation Category.
Congratulations to Koby Pack led by Mr. Alan Rawlins, business/marketing instructor and FBLA advisor.
Although 105 individuals competed at the national leadership conference in the Sales Presentation event, it is not easy to get there or to get into finals. Only two percent of FBLA students advance to the national level, so just getting there to compete is a great achievement. For students to make finals at Nationals they must be in the top 2 of their preliminary section out of 13-14 students.
Koby took first place at the State competition in March out of 28 individuals where he had to finish in the top two to advance to Nationals. Along with Koby, 12 other students from Weber High also attended Nationals in a variety of other events.
Congratulations to 38 students in 4th through 6th grade who earned the Viking Fitness Award this year at Valley View Elementary! The Viking Fitness Award recognizes students who display outstanding achievements in physical fitness; including excellence in the mile run, push-ups, sit-ups and the sit & reach. These 38 Vikings never give up and work hard to obtain and maintain physical fitness in their daily lives. Congratulations to each one of them!
Last week at Freedom Elementary we dedicated our 11th all-abilities playground! Each playground is specially designed so that all children can play together. A big thanks to the Weber School Foundation, the Swanson Family Foundation, Besst Realty Group, Freedom Elementary PTA and the incredible members of the community. Without their generous donations and support, these types of projects would not be possible.
For their annual Community Workers Faces event, Majestic 2nd-grade students chose Community Workers and learned about what they do. Some of the information the students researched was their community worker's education, challenges of the job, skills required, etc. Each student made a poster of what their Community Worker looks like and transformed themselves into that Worker. Parents, family members, and friends were invited to come meet our workers and ask them questions about their jobs.
