December is the Time for Sharing

The students at Dilworth Elementary have the holiday spirit.  Over the past week, students continued the fifteen-year tradition of making ornaments and decorating Sugarhouse Zions Bank’s Christmas tree. Friday, December 2, our Peer Leadership Team, along with their advisor, Ms. Shelly Stansfield and our principal, Jared Wright hung over 100 ornaments to adorn the bank’s tree. The Peer Leadership Team sang some holiday songs after they decorated the tree and then enjoyed holiday cookies with the staff at Zions Bank.  This is a great way to reach out to our businesses in our community and let them know how much we appreciate all they do to support public education.  We want to thank Zions Bank for their continued support of Dilworth Elementary. 

In addition, Dilworth has a giving tree in the main hall of the school.  We are encouraging our school community to donate new gloves, hats and scarves to those in need.  These items will hang on the tree reminding us that the true spirit of the holiday season is giving of ourselves to those in need.  Please join the Dilworth School community this holiday season by remembering others and sharing the joy of the season.

Operation Gratitude

The Dilworth student body and community was up to the task and collected boxes and boxes of wrapped candy, tooth brushes and toothpaste to Operation Gratitude.  The student body wrote 720 personal letters to the troops and sent close to 100 pounds of candy.  Thursday, November 10, the Dilworth care package was sent to Operation Gratitude in California where it will be shipped to our servicemen and women around the world.  Dilworth Elementary and community extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all who have and continue to serve our country and make America safe.
