Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you so much for your support with our fundraiser.  Each year, the cost of printing rises so it is necessary to do a spring fundraiser to recoup for paper, toner and this year two new copy machines.  Teachers work on being creative with your student’s assignments in order to save on paper costs.  We have the most innovative teachers and I am amazed at their diligence. A special thank your to our PTA for donating $500.00 towards the new copy machines.  Our PTA is the greatest!

With the month of April, comes our SAGE testing.  All students in grades 3-6, are scheduled to start testing the last week ofApril going through May 15th for math, language and science.  Please make sure your child gets plenty of sleep each night, eats a nutritious breakfast, wear comfortable clothing and is on time for school. Your child has worked very hard this year, and we want them to show their academic progress.  The teachers have also worked diligently at teaching your students and they care about their welfare and want what is best for each child.  Please encourage your student(s) to try to do their best with the end of year testing.  Our expectations are very high for your students and we want them to succeed!

I would also like to extend my deepest gratitude for all you do to help our school be as successful as possible.  I am always overwhelmed with the continual support that we receive from this community.  Thank you so much for all you do for the teachers, staff and especially the kids, and a special thank you to the PTA for ALL the support they have given us this year.  We have the best of the best!

We are also looking forward to our new members of our PTA who are coming from the Kanesville boundary change.  We already love you all.  Thank you for your volunteering for many of the positions and invite anyone interested in helping out however they feel comfortable.   Please if you have questions, please feel free to call at email=This email address is being protected from spambots.

First grade newsletter submission:

Wow! The year is quickly speeding by! Our first graders have made so much progress in reading, and we are proud of them! We have learned all the sounds, and we are now focusing on fluency and comprehension. The homework will now have a story to read with comprehension questions that follow. Please continue to listen to your child read the story and talk about what they read. Remember to do a one minute timing and write the number of words they read at the top of the page.

In math we will be working on 2-digit addends and solving multi-step story problems. We will also continue to practice our math facts. Our first grade students are working hard to earn a banana split at the end of May for passing off all of the “race the clock” math timings. They are very excited about the banana split party!

We would like to thank our wonderful parent volunteers for the fun class spring parties! Shout out to Winegarswho donated sugar cookies for Mrs. Kite’s class party! We appreciate their donation!

We are excited to announce that we will be going on a field trip to the Dinosaur Park on Tuesday, May 23. We will send detailed information home at the beginning of May, but we wanted to give you a heads up! 

Our first graders are also working very hard on a program that we will present to parents on the evening of May 17th. We look forward to seeing you there! 

We appreciate all of our parents who work so hard for the success of all the children. Have a great spring!!

We would like to THANK those of you who volunteered during our Planetarium field trip.  The students seemed to have an enjoyable time.  We would also like to THANK those students and parents who participated in the 2nd grade fundraiser.  Please make sure that your student is reading at least 20 minutes nightly.  Students need to practice their basic math facts.  The XtraMath site is a great resource for math fluency practice.  There are plenty of applications available to download for math practice as well.  Students need to practice their time and money skills as well.  We will be visiting the HAFB Museum email=This email address is being protected from spambots.

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the New Year - 2017!  This year is half over and before we know it, summer vacation will be upon us.  I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday Season. 

With the weather being as it is in Utah, so unpredictable, I ask that you make sure you have your current email and telephone number(s) are registered with the school.  If school is closed due to weather, the district will need to get a hold of each parent/guardian to notify you as early as possible either by phone, email or by text.  If you have not logged on to the portal, please take the time to do so. The portal allows us to add you to the district/school group e-mail in case of a school emergency.  Any school closure on a Weber County basis will be announced over radio stations KLO (1430 AM) and KSL (1160 AM).  

Parent-Teacher conferences will be February 1st through the 3rd.  We hope to see you all here.  The book fair will be the last week of January, more information will be forthcoming.

Wishing you a wonderful 2017 and we are so glad you are part of our school and community.

Truly,

Melissa Copeland

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

We hope you had a wonderful holiday season! We are excited to be back and ready to work hard.

January is a very busy month. We will start assessing the students for 2nd quarter. Please try to have your child well-rested, fed and at school on time so they will be ready to do their best.

Don’t forget to keep working on homework and reading for 20 minutes every day. Gold tickets are given for returning homework on time each week.

During the month of January, we talk and learn about animals. In a week or so, an important animal project will be coming home. Please watch for it.

Also, Parent Teacher conferences are coming up on Feb. 1-3rd. Watch for those notes as well.

We appreciate all you do to help your child. It really makes our job easier. When we work as a team, we can do amazing things!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Gines

Mrs. Perry

 


1st Grade

We hope you enjoyed a wonderful holiday with your family! Every year it seems that our first graders grow up quite a bit over the Christmas break, and they come back ready to work hard! This is good because the phonics sounds and spellings that they are learning continue to increase in difficulty. We appreciate your efforts to help your child become more familiar with these sounds as you practice the homework pages each night. We will begin our fluency testing in January, and we will continue this fluency testing throughout the year. These scores will be on your child's progress report and report card. In math, we will begin introducing concepts other than addition and subtraction, such as tens and ones, telling time, counting money, shapes, and skip counting. We find that first graders do well with these concepts if they have practice with them at home. You can help your child by having them count the change in your purse or pocket, having a clock with hands in your home, and practicing counting by 2’s, 5's and 10's when you are riding in the car. Simple things like these will really help your child succeed with these concepts. First graders will be expected to be able to count by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s when we celebrate our 100th day of school.

We appreciate those of you who are helping your child log in to Raz-Kids. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to practice reading on their reading level with a wide variety of books. If you are experiencing problems logging in to Raz-Kids, please contact your child’s teacher so you can take advantage of this fabulous program.

In January we will do a fun unit on Eskimos. We just finished the theme, "Children Around the World," in our reading books. We are learning how children in other countries are the same as we are, and how they do things differently. Have a fun and safe January!

Dear Parents and Students,

We hope you all enjoyed the holiday season.  Parents please discuss the school rules with your student and remind them of the importance of following the rules at all times while in attendance (follow directions the first time given and body in control).  Students need to continue reading at least 20 minutes each night.  Reading minutes need to be logged on the monthly reading calendar along with book titles.  The Book Adventure party is scheduled for January 19th for those students who reached 2,000 or more points (that is 20 or more books within the term with a 100% accuracy on the comprehension test which generally consists of 5 multiple choice questions).  Reading on a nightly basis is of great importance.  Students should be reading out loud to an adult to ensure accuracy and fluency.  We have started Chapter 3 in the Go Math program.  We will be working on adding and subtracting simple numbers along with identifying doubles.  Students need to study their basic math facts.  Students should be able to recite the facts without utilizing their fingers (flashcards and math fluency applications are great resources as well as verbal math sentences).  We have a field trip planned for March 27th, but we are in need of parent volunteers to ensure the opportunity to attend the Planetarium in Salt Lake City (there must be 1 adult per 3 students).  Also, if you are available and willing to lend a helping hand in any of the second grade classrooms we as teachers would greatly appreciate the help. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Let’s give a cheer to our 5th graders for jumping in and heading up the Country View Food Drive. They jumped in with making a plan, fun posters, set up 5th grade teams to manage individual classrooms, wrote and sang encouraging jingles, made morning and afternoon announcements, logged and tracked all items that were brought in, boxed, stacked, then loaded a trailer with all of the donations. We are proud of how they pulled together and made this happen!

We are learning about Civil Rights and some of the inspirational people who had a direct impact on humanity. We are excited to have a guest speaker on January 12th. Be sure to ask your child about their experience.

Fractions are our next adventure in math. Fractions are all around us. Help your child find the fun: music, recipes, sports, time, dance, etc.

Thanks for everything you do!
