ONE OF MY FORMER STUDENTS, MAREN BURGESS, IS CURRENTLY
IN WASHINGTON D.C.
SHE IS REPRESENTING THE STATE OF UTAH
AT NATIONALS IN THE HISTORY FAIR!
THIS IS 2 YEARS IN A ROW FOR MY KIDDOS
GOING TO NATIONALS!!!
SHE GOT THERE BY WINNING 1ST PLACE IN UTAH!!!
HER TOPIC WAS ABOUT SACAJEWEA AND LEWIS & CLARK.
SHE LOVED THEM SOOOO MUCH!
IN 5TH GRADE, SHE WAS SACAJEWEA IN THE WAX MUSEUM.
FOR CHRISTMAS, SHE MADE ME A BOOK ON THE
SUBJECT THAT WAS PUBLISHED.
I TOLD HER TO GO TO MONTICELLO TO REALLY
SEE THINGS FIRST HAND!
Our June retired teachers lunch was held at
in Lehi. It is where the old "Winger's" was.
The Moochies in Salt Lake was on
Guy Fieri's show, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.
It was Nancy's first time as a regular member.
Lori Chadwich also joined us...as a wanna be.
Row 2: Me, Lori Chadwick, Ruth Anderson, Adonna Iverson, Vicky Haws, Loretta Stevens
Row 1: Nancy Pope, Mary Baxter, Carolyn Hutchings, John Pool, Heidi Park
Since I taught in Alpine for 33 years,
I definitely consider it to be my
"home away from home."
Because Nick Gentry's funeral was near the
foothills, I decided to drive up after.
This was where I took my class hiking for years!
We walked from the school to the North Mountain.
Boy, I took walking for granted!!!
When we first went, the road was dirt
from the top of Grove Drive.
Now it's paved all the way!
We did a lot of learning about the history
and geology of the area, did experiments,
ate lunch, and went to the bowery for a water fight.
These pictures are GORGEOUS,
but...we always went in October.
Nothing says beauty like Alpine in the fall!!!
This area meant that we had arrived!

ON JUNE 10, WE HAD OUR ANNUAL FUNDRAISER
TO RAISE SCHOLARSHIP MONEY FOR THE JUNIORS
GOING TO VALLEY FORGE, AND THE TEACHERS GOING
ON THE SUMMER HISTORY TRIPS.
IT WAS HELD AT "THE LINKS AT OVERLAKE"
GOLF COURSE IN TOOELE.
WE HAVE IT HERE, BECAUSE ONE OF OUR BOARD
MEMBERS OWNS IT.
SO, ALL OF THE MONEY IS STRAIGHT DONATION.
AFTER WE SET UP FOR THE LUNCH, IT WAS
TIME TO DRIVE THE GOLF CARTS!!!
I WENT AROUND ALL OF THE COURSE, TWO TIMES!
I'VE DECIDED THAT I WILL DRIVE A GOLF CART IN HEAVEN!
A STORM WAS BREWING ALL DAY,
AND IT HIT AT LUNCH!
HERE ARE PICTURES FROM THE GREAT DAY!
