Greetings Families and Friends,
This Update is sent out today before the long weekend as I am sure many of us are heading out for some camping or other outdoor activities.
Arts Night was a great success! What a terrific way to put an exclamation point on the end of a challenging school year!
As we wind down the year, there are still many fun activities planned in classrooms and still lots of learning going on. With that, here are some important items in the closing days.
The last day of school is Monday, June 7th (emergency make-up day from the windstorms, remember those?) and both that day and Friday the 4th will be early release at 1:00 PM.
Laptop Return will be on Thursday the 3rd and Friday the 4th. (Students will still need their laptops for the Remote Day on that Wednesday, the 2nd.) For returns, just send the laptop with the charger with your student on either of those days before school and we will check them in at the foyer. For families who are in Remote learning, you can return the laptops and chargers after school on Monday the 7th. We got a 100 percent return last year and let’s see if we can get it again this year!
Also, we will have the Lost and Found out in the foyer. So, if parents are helping to drop off laptops, please, take a moment to look through the items and retrieve anything that is yours. What does not get picked up by the end of the year will be donated to DI.
Since the official registration will begin in the middle of July, class lists will be put up on the front doors of the school on August 2nd. I will send out a reminder to families as we get closer to that date, but we appreciate everyone who has filled out an intent to register form. This has been very helpful, but we know we will still be getting new families moving into the neighborhood and to the University Village. And consequently, some adjustments will need to be made.
We would like to welcome our newest member to our faculty, Rose Kjesbo! Rose comes to us from Mary W Jackson elementary school where she taught 2nd grade for seven years. She received her undergraduate and master’s degrees at the University of Utah where she was on the varsity cross-country ski team. Ms. Kjesbo will be teaching fourth grade with Mr. Lof next year.
No School on Monday. Happy Memorial Day!
All End-of-Level and the state RISE testing is completed. We appreciate the hard work the kids put into these assessments!
