Muir Elementary needs donations for a Silent Auction basket for the Davis Education Gala. Davis
Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises money and provides an avenue for tax-
free donations to go to schools in Davis School District. Some of the items purchased for Muir through
the Foundation have been projectors, projector mounts, rocket launchers (for 6th grade), and
books. This is an important and necessary part of our funding at Muir. Our basket theme for this year
is "Entertainment." Ideas for donations could include: tickets to movies, plays, sporting events and
activities; a timeshare week or other "get-away" packages; a family excursion gift card; etc. Donations
are much appreciated and need to be delivered to the office by Wednesday, Feb. 1. There will be a
cash donation to the school that receives the highest bid at the auction (schools are divided so that
Muir competes only against the other south elementary schools for the prize).
The Utah Jazz has offered PTA members a great deal on one more Utah Jazz game. To get this offer,
we would have to commit to purchasing 100 tickets. THIS IS NOT A FUNDRAISER. The cost of the
tickets is $30.00 per seat for lower bowl and $7.00 per seat for upper bowl. You need to be a PTA
member for this, if you are not, the cost to be a member is $5.00. The Jazz have offered this to all PTA
members (statewide), and it is on a first-come basis (seats are limited). This last game is on Monday,
Jan 30th, 7pm against Portland Trailblazers.
Please do not go through the school office; you need to go through Jana Uryan, the PTA
president. Please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in purchasing tickets. Include in
your email: how many tickets, upper or lower bowl, and a phone number. This offer concludes at
10am on Wednesday, January 25.
Bad Weather makes for bad drop off and parking. Here’s a few tips that might help you!
1. Turn off cell phones and slow down in school zones.
2. Watch for children in crosswalks.
3. Be considerate of other drivers.
4. Park in designated stalls only.
5. On snow days without 4-wheel drive, walk or use alternative drop-off.
6. Use drop off/loading zone. The bus loop is reserved for busses during 8:15-9:00 am and 2:45-3:45
pm. Do Not Use the curb on the front corner of the bus loop. This clogs the traffic behind you and
cars cannot pass you!
