Third Grade Donut Date

The 3rd grade Donut Date will be this Friday, January 20, from 9:15 - 9:45 in the 3rd grade classrooms. Students are encouraged to invite a dad, mom, or another adult friend or relative to join them in the classroom to read together and have a donut. You can bring your own reading material or read books from the classroom. Adults do not need to sign in at the front office for this event.

We request that you find a babysitter for younger children if possible, so you can focus on your 3rd grader.

Paying for School Lunch

I've been a fan of MealPayPlus for a while because it makes it easy to keep track of how much lunch money your students have in their accounts and to make school lunch payments when needed. Now the program has changed its name to MyPaymentsPlus, but it's better than ever before because now it's FREE to make payments, whereas you used to pay a about a 4% fee when you made payments (though it was always free to check balances).

You can use MyPaymentsPlus to:

·         Check student balances
·         Make payments
·         Receive low balance e-mail reminders
·         Set up auto-replenish
·         View purchase history

If you were already a MealPayPlus customer, you have all the same features as before without making any changes. It's just that now they are all free.

If you've never used online payments for school lunch, but now it sounds appealing, you can sign up for a free account at First get your student's student ID number. You can get it from Skyward or by calling 801-766-6441 and asking the school secretary. If you have students in other Alpine School District schools, you can sign them all up under the same account, but you will need each student's ID number. After you have your student ID numbers, click the Register for a FREE account button on the left side of the page. Choose Utah and Alpine School District from the menus, and the rest is easy-breezy to set up.

I have students in three different schools, and I just love that this program makes it easy for me to stay on top of school lunch payments. Maybe it will help you too!
