It Pays To Read!!! Students at Sierra Bonita received a raffle ticket for turning in their reading minutes. The more they read, the more raffle tickets they received to enter for prizes and the possibility of shooting hoops for cash at the 'It Pays To Read' assembly.  We also had the fun opportunity to have BYU's Baseball Pitching Coach, Mr. Jeremy Thomas attend the assembly. Coach Thomas also has two children that are currently attending Sierra Bonita! He brought along with him two of his BYU's baseball players, Hayden Nielson (Shortstop) and Jerrett Jarvis (catcher).

Our grand prize winner was a 6th grade student who won an HP Tablet! Way to go! Remember to keep reading! "It Pays To Read!"

Sierra Bonita Elementary had the opportunity to have a school choir directed by Mrs. Karen Thueson, and accompanied by Mrs. Tiffany Pickett. There were over 60 students from 4th-6th grade who signed up to join the choir! The students were required to attend practice which was held before school. Students and parents all thought their performance was wonderful! The choir was also invited to sing at the Zions Bank "Lights On" ceremony.

Our Sierra Bonita 3rd graders made over 60 fleece blankets for Mac's Gift Children's Cancer Foundation. We love our students!!!

We had about 15 blankets left over. One was given to a handicap girl and the rest will be taken to Payson Hospital to be distributed to infants in the hospital. Mrs. Latham and Mrs. Christensen had the opportunity to attend the Christmas Party held by this foundation. They said it was an amazing event to be a part of. Cosmo was even there!

The Student Council held a Christmas Needs Drive and collected non-perishable food items and new socks. The food donated was collected in each classroom and then put on display by each grade level in the form of a creative sculpture. The more items a class collected, the better chance the grade had at winning a prize. After, the food was donated to families in need in the community. The socks were donated to The Christmas Box Non-Profit Organization.
