One of our biggest family events will be held on November 6.

Classrooms will be filled with art and literacy activities in which all members of your family may participate. Projects from Reflections will also be on display. Please stop by the lost and found area by the office while you are here to identify any articles that may belong to your child. All unclaimed items will be donated to charity after this event.
The deadline for SALTA testing applications is quickly approaching. Any students wishing to enter the SALTA program for the 2015-16 school year must have filed an application for testing by October 30. Please visit our website for the link to the application. All existing third grade SALTA students will be tested at school November 10-21.
Based on feedback from parents and teachers, the I-CANyons Student Reports have been revised and updated this year. The new Student Reports for your child will be issued the week of November 17.

Hello Panther Families,
We would like to say a big thank you to the PTA for the outstanding Book Fair and Goodies & Grown-Ups event. We had more people attend than ever before! Thank you for joining us at conferences to learn more about your child’s goals. We hope you had the opportunity to stop by and visit with our School Board Representative, Steve Wrigley. We were excited to have him join us for the evening.
We are off and running on Red Ribbon Week. The theme for each day is listed in the calendar below. Please have discussions with your child about making healthy choices each day. We want all of our Panthers to be healthy and happy.
Statewide SAGE results will be released Monday, Oct. 20, 2014. These will include results for every school district and every school in the state. At this point, the Utah State Office of Education is reporting that fewer than half of the Utah students tested are expected to score as proficient in English language arts, mathematics and science. Please look for the document that will be sent home with students tomorrow including SAGE information and the Land Trust final report.
