Hello Indian Hills families!

We are down to the last weeks of school! But no rest for the weary... Here's what's coming up -- 

Box Tops: Thank you for your support of Box Tops! We have concluded our spring drive earning $376 for our school just by clipping Box Tops. Mr. Hackman's class pulled ahead at the end to win an extra recess for the most Box Tops collected. Thank you! And make clipping those Box Tops a habit. It's a "free" and easy way to support the school. There is always a box in the lobby for them. 

Excellent Eagle Awards Assembly: The Excellent Eagle Awards Assembly is this Friday, May 18 at 11:45 a.m. All students who have achieved this award should have received an invitation. We congratulate all students who worked hard toward this extra academic goal this year! 

Spirit Week May 21 - 24: Student Government is hosting an end-of-year Spirit Week next week. Encourage your student to join in the fun! The days are as follows: 

 Monday: Wear your favorite Jersey

Tuesday: Wear your Shades

Wednesday: Crazy hair/crazy socks day

Thursday: School Colors: red, white, and blue

Friday: No school

Student Government is also hosting a Random Acts of Kindness Week May 29 - June 1. The perfect way to end the year!      

School Carnival: The annual end-of-year carnival will be held on Tuesday, June 5. Wrist bands are provided for all students, and siblings are invited to join for a small fee. More information to come!

Thank you! 

Lisa & Jamie

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.
