Volunteers needed for eighth-grade Reality Town
Treasure Mountain Junior High is seeking volunteers to help run the annual eighth-grade Reality Town. According to a school newsletter, the event is scheduled to take place on April 5 and requires 180 volunteers. The event is scheduled to run from 7:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. at the school’s gym. During the event, students will select occupations and use their assigned monthly income and family scenario to make financial choices about housing, transportation, child care and clothing.

Park City High Dance Company ranked at top in state
Park City High School Dance Company and Dance Company 2 received a Superior rating at the Utah Dance Educator’s Organization High School Dance Festival on March 17. Ashley Mott, dance company director, said that this is the highest ranking a school can achieve. It is the first time Park City High has earned the rank. The festival is not division-divided, so that ranking is against schools of all sizes across the state. The festival also had a master class taught by dancer and choreographer Dan Higgins.
The arsenic-and-lead-containing soil has been a contentious issue for the district, which piled it onto the junior high campus in actions that were later discovered to be in violation of a covenant with the Environmental Protection Agency.
