PCO Entheos Academy Newsletter
September 2014
Meet our new Director
Dr. Meeks comes to Entheos Academy with a
great deal of knowledge and passion for
education. He has a Graduate Chiropractic
Degree and a Bachelors Degree in History. He
spent 16 years of his career working as a
Chiropractor in the Ogden area, but wanted
to get more involved with education. He is a
strong believer that “Education changes the
world.” Twelve years ago he opened a private
school called Legacy Leadership Academy.
He worked there for 3 years and taught a
Classical Liberal Arts curriculum. This was the
start of his education career. Recently he
comes from working at Maeser Preperatory
Academy. There he taught biology,
government and leadership. Last year he
received “Teacher of the Year” award which
was a very high honor. He has been a School
Board Member and a mentor in his schools.
Dr. Meeks is married with 4 children. He loves
camping, playing racquet ball, and spending
time with his family. He and his wife are avid
readers and have enough books in their house
to have a library of their own. He LOVES
Entheos Academy’s mission and values. He’s a
firm believer that Expeditionary Learning is the
best style of teaching and knows Entheos
Academy can be one of the top schools. We
are excited you’re here! Welcome to our crew.
Welcome to Entheos!

Parking Lot Reminders:
 Do not leave car unattended in the loading/unloading zones
 Please have students ready to drop off in the morning. If
students or parents are not ready, PLEASE PULL AS FAR
FORWARD as possible in the loading/unloading zones so you
are not backing up traffic.
 Please remember not to turn left on to 7200 West when
dropping off/picking up students. Parents who turn left create
a safety hazard, back up cars in the parking lot, and back up
cars trying to enter the parking lot.
 If it’s 8:30am or after you will need to pull in the parking lot and
check in your student at the front office.
 When driving through the parking lot please use extra caution.

Box Top Program Earned Over $1500.00 Last Year
Box Tops can be found on several products bought at the store. The school earns
$0.10 for every box top that is collected and turned in. That may not sound like
much but you would be surprised how fast that adds up. If every student turned in
10 box tops a month times 500 students that would be $500.00 a month for our
school. Here are a few ideas what products Box Tops can be found on: Betty
Crocker, Nestlé Juicy Juice, General Mills Cereal, Green Giant Vegetable’s,
Pillsbury, Land O’ Lakes, Hanes, Avery, Kleenex, Hefty, and Ziploc products.
***Also some products have bonus box tops, don’t forget to cut those as well and
turn them in. You can also earn ebox tops online for our school at btfe.com.
Watch out for the expiration date on them.
We will be having a Box Top Competition Sept. 1st thru Oct. 3rd. This will be
between the grades and who can turn the most in the most box tops. Get your
friends and family to collect them for you. This money helps us tremendously for our
school! More information about the competition will be coming home soon!
Parenting with Love and Logic
classes will be held October 8th thru
November 19th from 7:00 to 9:00pm
at Entheos Academy.
Parent Reminder: Please make sure you
are logging all of your volunteer hours. You
can do this by filling out the log in the front
office or emailing your name, hours and what
your volunteering was for to

Town Hall Meeting
Please join us on September 17 @
7:00pm. All parents are encouraged
to attend. There will be performances
by students and information about
Title One schools. Also, this will
give parents an opportunity to ask
questions to Dr. Meeks, PCO and a
member of the School Board.
Hope to see everyone there.
