Hearing and Speech screening
Emery School District conducts annual speech and hearing screening to identify students who might need further evaluation of their speech or hearing. Students who fail the initial hearing screening will be given a re-test in three-four weeks. Screening is scheduled with the schools involved and takes place anytime during the school year. District speech-language pathologists administer the tests. All district preschool, kindergarten, first grade, new students and any referrals will be screened for hearing. Pre-kindergarten students will be screened during kindergarten registration and third grade students will be screened for speech only. Parents who do not want their child to receive speech or hearing screening tests must contact the school secretary.
High Desert Growers will be holding a farmers market from 3:30-6:30 p.m. every Wednesday through the end of the growing season at the Emery County Recreation Building. Come out and support our local farmers. Farmers and their produce are needed.

Free Resource Makes Applying for Student Financial Aid Easier
Self-guided presentation walks students through the sometimes-confusing financial aid application process. The Utah Higher Education Assistance Authority is very pleased to announce "Navigating the FAFSA," a much-needed new resource to help students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (commonly called the "FAFSA"). This tool is a self-directed presentation that guides students through topics explaining the purpose of the FAFSA, how to obtain a PIN to sign their FAFSA securely online, what information should be gathered, how to complete the FAFSA, and how to submit it. Easily found on the front page of the UHEAA website, this presentation gives high school counselors and financial aid professionals another tool to help their students. To access the presentation go to http://www.uheaa.org/ and click on the "Navigating the FAFSA" button. The presentation can also be found through UHEAA's Facebook page.
