January 21, 2020

Once winter break has passed and we move through January the school year really starts to fly. We have had mid-year testing this month and we’re happy with the results and growth we are seeing. With the school year ending on May 29thwe are trying to adjust instruction so we are sure to cover everything students need to learn. Thank you for helping your children read at home and complete homework. This builds their confidence and supports their growth. We are looking forward to parent teacher conferences next month so we can all work together to end the year with a celebration!

Ready for ‘Big Kid’ School? Apply for CSD’s Supplemental Kindergarten Program

  • Uncategorized

Ready for “big kid” school? Kindergarten is a critical year in a child’s education, and to make sure students get off to a strong start, we are expanding the number of hours some of our kindergartners spend in the classroom. Starting on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 10 a.m., Canyons District will begin accepting online applications for its Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Our school is among 20 throughout the District that is offering the program. Students must be 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2020 to participate in the opt-in, tuition-based program. Space is limited and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Phase one of the application process will end on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 11:59 p.m., and by Feb. 12, families will be notified of whether their students have been admitted to a school of their choosing or placed on a waiting list. Canyons District will continue to accept applications after Feb. 5. Students who apply after that date will be added to a waiting list or invited to enroll at schools that still have openings. 

Students who are accepted into the program will receive nearly four additional hours of instruction every school day. The participating children begin and end school at the same time as the school’s first- through fifth-grade students. Cost for the program is $2,950 a year, and can be paid in monthly installments. A 10 percent discount is available for parents and guardians who pay the yearly tuition in full at one time. Read more on CSD’s website.

January 13, 2020

We have been reviewing the school expectations after returning from winter break. The students are doing a great job of remembering the rules and being friendly with everyone. I am very proud of every student for the great things they do learning in their class and their great behavior throughout the school.

We will be reading the book “The Runaway Wok” about the Chinese New Year. The story is about a boy named Ming. His mother sends him with some eggs to trade for a bag of rice they need for the New Year’s feast and celebration. Ming meets an older gentleman on his way to trade the eggs for rice. Ming makes a trade for a wok instead of rice. The story is about sharing all of the great things we have with everyone. It also teaches us about this significant holiday for the Chinese people that lasts from about mid-January until early February. Everyone eats their favorite foods, they play games and have fireworks. This story is a great way to learn about important traditions and sharing what we have with others.
