PTA Information

Hello Parents of Indian Hills Elementary,

          

We hope you have all had an amazing summer filled with lots of sunshine and  fun memories.  Whether you are excited or dreading the first day of school, it is just around the corner...Monday August 19th in case anyone is wondering.

 

Our Back to School Night this year will be held on Thursday August 22nd.  Grades 3-6 will have sessions at 5:00pm and 5:30pm where you can go meet your child's teacher.  Grades K-2 will have their sessions at 6:30pm and 7:00pm.  We will have a break at 6:00pm where you can all come meet our awesome new principal Mr. Tom Luthy in the auditorium.  Back to School Night is also a great time for you to come sign up for the many volunteer opportunities we have at the school.  Whether you enjoy science, art, reading, or running, we can use your help throughout the year!  The PTA will have sign ups in the foyer of the school, so please take a moment and look at all the possibilities where you can help enhance our Indian Hills Community.  We will also have order forms where you can order your child's school t-shirt, school directory, and yearbook.  We look forward to seeing you on Thursday August 22nd

 

In the Spring, we tried an online registration with PTA and it was great!  We are asking each family to please sign up with My School Anywhere by following the attached link. You can order the school t-shirts, directories, and yearbook online. Our directory will be free through their app.  It is very easy to use and we encourage everyone to sign up!

 

We are pleased to welcome some talented new teachers and staff to our team!

  • Taylor Buongiorno will be teaching full-day kindergarten. Ms. Buongiorno is a graduate of the University of Central Florida with a degree in Early Childhood Education, and she has taught 1stgrade for the last 3 years.
  • Elizabeth Winter will split her time with half-day kindergarten and English language development (ELD). Ms. Winter recently graduated from BYU with a degree in Early Childhood Education, and she has taught one year of kindergarten in the Granite School District.
  • Elliot Loff joins us on the 4th grade team. Mr. Loff is a former student of Indian Hills and a graduate of Utah State. He has worked in the district for 5 years as both a fourth and fifth grade teacher.
  • Kathryn Moore will be teaching 6th grade. Ms. Moore started her teaching career in Wyoming but more recently has come to us from California. Her career includes being a computer teacher, reading specialist, as well as a regular ed. classroom teacher.
  • Camila Rees will work with kindergarten classes as a paraprofessional. Before joining us, Ms. Rees worked at a charter school as a paraprofessional in the primary grades.

Looking ahead, our annual Busath Photography fundraiser will be on Tuesday, September 10th and Wednesday, September 11th from 4-8 PM at Busath's Studio. This amazing fundraiser that we are so fortunate to be able to participate in year after year is a win/win--beautiful photography for you and funds for our school.  A 15-minute session can be for an individual or group. If you have interest in booking a time slot, please text Niki Evans at 801-808-5910. 

 

Due to some scheduling changes by the district, Parent Teacher Conferences will be a little different this year and moving forward.  These meetings will be conducted on 2 Thursdays during the month of October and March instead of during one week each month.  We have attached a new calendar with the date changes. 

 

This will be an awesome school year with so many new faces and friends to meet.  If you know of any families who are new to the school, please forward this email on to them so they can get connected with us.  You parents are so amazing and we are grateful for your participation and support in all the wonderful things that Indian Hills has to offer our children.  See you soon!
