Thorneberry is proud to adopt Mrs. Coelho's 4th grade class at Rocky Mountain Elementary School in Lindon. Mrs. Coelho, a native Brazilian, teaches her students 50% of the day in English and 50% in Portuguese as part of Alpine School District's only Portuguese Dual Language Immersion School. The students are taught by six native-speaking teachers, or Professoras. In addition to math, science and literacy, the students enjoy American and Brazilian cultural experiences. The program is designed to develop students' abilities to work successfully in multiple cultural settings and offer culturally diverse experiences for the entire community.
Triton is also a proud donor to "Dream Big", a foundation started by Mark Smith, amateur cyclist who went on a quest to break the solo record for The Saints to Sinners 517 mile ultra-endurance cycling race to raise money for academic scholarships to students at Olympus High School, his Alma Mater and where he has taught for the last 16 years.
Dream Big was able to raise $10,000. The scholarships will be awarded at the Olympus High School Senior Awards banquet in May, 2020.
Pictured here is Mark and our Vice President, Lars, rode a 206 mile race called Lotoja - the longest one-day bicycle race in America. Both racers received a trophy for completing the race 10 years in a row.
