Greetings Families and Friends,
Happy New Year! I hope everyone is enjoying the break, and I am hopeful about 2022. The beginning of a new year is always exciting as there are so many things to look forward to. The rest of this year will surely have its challenges, like 2021 did which we collectively and gracefully took in stride. We are excited to get the kids back on Monday and start the 2022 year off with lots of great learning and activities. Not only do we have the regular things like math, language arts, etc, but also the STEAM/Science Fair and DEAR week are happening this month as well. What a terrific way to start 2022!

A Message about STEAM Fair from Ms. Bonner:
Greetings Indian Hills,
I hope your STEAM Fair projects are coming along smoothly! STEAM Fair projects are due on Tuesday, January 11th in the front lobby. Project judging will occur over zoom at school from the 12-14th. All participating students must register online. 6th grade students are already registered. This means that if your Kindergarten - 5th grade student would like to speak to judges about their project they must be registered online by Friday, 1/7. You can register your student here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe8hOaRx13NMrSqwRVOM067GeqaHYkgIRVU5j3ai67EniZuLg/viewform?usp=sf_link.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by call or text at (801) 699-5433.
I am really excited to see student projects!
Thank you for supporting science, Kristen Bonner

The Salt Lake City Council voted to extend the Mayor’s mask order. This means masks will be required in our schools at least until Spring Recess. You can find more information about the City Council’s decision in a recent Salt Lake Tribune article. Remember to send your student to school with a mask when we return from Winter Break on January 3.
