Toddler through adult sizes accepted.

Secretary Day -- National Secretary Day is on Wednesday, April 25, and we have three amazing administrative professionals that keep Indian Hills running smoothly every day. Feel free to stop in and say thank you or drop them a note of appreciation. They truly deserve our gratitude!

BOOT Discount Card -- If you were not able to attend registration and would like to purchase the AMAZING BOOT discount card (or three), you can contact Niki Evans, 801-808-5910, or watch for a table at Art Night. $20 each. They include discounts to local stores and are valid through April 2019. This unique card was created by our BOOT committee going to every business listed and inviting them to offer our school community a discount. It's truly a local card, and it's truly one-of-a-kind. 

Save the Date - Volunteer Appreciation and Transition Luncheon -- May 9 at 11:30 a.m. the PTA will hold the annual Volunteer Appreciation and Transition Luncheon as we "hand off" to a new and wonderful PTA board for the 2018-19 school year. If you have volunteered, are volunteering, or have thought about volunteering at Indian Hills, please join us! RSVP to Lisa Thomson (801-721-5313 or thomsonla@gmail.com) -- and come even if you forget to RSVP. :) We could never do all that we do at Indian Hills without the outstanding parents, grandparents, and community volunteers that support our school so generously. 

 

Thank you!

Elementary School Extended Learning Program (ELP) Assesment Information

Salt Lake City School District’s Extended Learning Program (ELP) Elementary Assessment Information The Salt Lake City School District's elementary Extended Learning Program (ELP) provides gifted educationalservicesfor identified gifted and high ability Kindergarten through grade six students. As part of the eligibility identification process for the 2018-2019 school year, parents of pre-k through grade five students may choose to have their child evaluated. This evaluation consists of both cognitive and academic assessments.

Students qualifying for an ELP placement have shown that they need an academic program that allows them to move more quickly, work with more complex concepts, and delve more deeply into academic content.

ELP services are available at all district elementary schools, with full-day Magnet classes at Emerson (dual immersion), Hawthorne, and Whittier Elementary schools. Testing is for the program, not a specific school. Parents may make a first, second, and third choice of school, but placement at a specific school is not guaranteed.

Please submit registration and disclosure statement form sto the district ELP office between December 6, 2017 and January 26, 2018. These forms are available on the district website, http://www.slcschools.org/departments/curriculum/extended-learning-program, at all district elementary schools, and through the ELP Office. You may contact Amy Burris, ELP Administrative Assistant, at 801-578-8573.

If you are interested in learning more about the Extended Learning Program, you may want to attend one of our Parent Information Meetings. These meetings will be held from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM:

  • Wednesday, January 10 at Hillside Middle School Auditorium, 1825 S Nevada Street,
  • Thursday January 11 at Northwest Middle School Auditorium, 1730 W 1700 N, and,
  •  Thursday, January 18 at the Salt Lake City School District offices, 440 E 100 S, Rooms 112-114.
