Forum to discuss the future of the “Dreamers”
The Project for Deeper Understanding is set to host a public forum that will discuss the future of “Dreamers” in the U.S. According to the group’s Facebook page, the forum is free and open to the public and will take place on Thursday, Nov. 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Luke’s Church in Snyderville. A panel discussion will follow, as well as an audience question-and-answer session. English to Spanish language translation will be available. If you are interested in learning more, call Charles at 435-901-2131. Dreamers are people who came to the U.S. illegally as children but consider the U.S. to be their home.

Schools raise funds during Live PC Give PC
Schools across Park City School District raised thousands of dollars during last week’s Live PC Give PC event, hosted by the Park City Community Foundation. According to a district newsletter, Jeremy Ranch Elementary School surpassed its goal to help fund a new playground. Trailside Elementary School also raised money for sensory playground equipment. Clubs at Park City High School, 3D doodle pens at Parley’s Park Elementary School, and the positive behavior support program at Treasure Mountain Junior High were also funded, among other school programs or materials. Vinto Pizzeria donated part of its funds to various schools during the event as well.
“Focus on the data outcomes, on the academic achievement outcomes, on the rankings that we have. The school board is happy with the direction of the district,” said Andrew Caplan, school board president. “We can always do a better job, especially with things that aren’t our core expertise like building and land management.”
