Uintah School District is looking to bolster its pool of substitute teachers. Currently the district only has about 60 active substitute teachers on its roster, after hiring at least 10 substitutes to fill various part-time and full-time positions this school year. The district would like to have more than 80 substitute teachers on its rolls to accommodate teachers who must miss work due to training, illness, or other reasons.

The Lapoint Elementary School garden, planted and maintained by Utah State University Extension-Uintah County, has had another successful year of providing produce to those in need.

As of Sept. 20, the garden had donated 900 pounds of produce to the Ashley Valley Food Pantry and 200 pounds of produce to those in need in the Lapoint community. "This year we planted corn, pumpkins, summer squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, and jalapenos, as well as an herb garden," said USU Extension Create Better Health Ambassador Cara Murray.

Finally, congratulations to the boy's cross-country teams from Vernal Middle School and Uintah Middle School, and the girl's cross-country team from Vernal Middle School on their solid performances at the Carbon Invitational this past week. The VMS boys team finished 1st overall and the UMS boys team finished in 2nd place. The VMS girls team finished their race in 3rd place overall. Outstanding work!
