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

Back to top

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!

Dear Parents,

This year is going great and thanks to all who help make this happen.  We are so happy to have so many new students at our school this year.  We have approximately 660 students up from 534 last year.  We want all our students to feel loved and to feel safe and secure in our school.  We have several safety procedures to ensure your student is safe. 

  • No parents are allowed on the playground, even with a visitor pass, due to Safe School Policies.  However, you are welcome to come and eat lunch with your child at any time or come and volunteer in the classroom.
  • Please bring your student(s) no earlier than 8:15 a.m., to school, especially in the winter when it is very cold outside as the first bell doesn’t ring until 8:25 a.m.  (This does not include those students who eat breakfast at 8:00 a.m.)
  • Please check in at the office anytime you come to the school, for any reason.  All doors are locked except the front door and this is a great way for us to meet and greet you.
  • It is a disruption for students to be checked out early each day, please use your discretion as learning takes place through the end of the day. (We know it is necessary for appointments and other situations, however).
  • Please do not have your student(s) cross the street, on their own, to get to your car, before or after school.  Safety is our Number One Priority and we are committed in keeping your child safe from harm.  Walk with them if necessary.
  • During this time of the year, students are riding bikes.  Please remind your children of the rules of not riding on the street and drivers please watch out for bikers. 
  • Please call the Absence Hotline 452-4405 for your student absences.

Again, thank you for trusting us with your student each day.  We look forward to seeing you often, and encourage you to communicate with your child’s teacher if you have questions or concerns, as they are the first line of interaction with your kids.

Truly,

Mrs. Copeland

Kindergarten parents,

WOW! What an exciting start to our Kindergarten year! We have been working really hard to learn ALL the rules and how to act in a classroom setting. We still have a lot of work to do but we are getting the hang of it.

This month in Language Arts we will be working on letter recognition, letter sounds and beginning sounds as well as sight words. Practice those sight words at home. Remember, they need to check them off with their teacher three times before new words will be sent home.

In math, we are working on shapes and numbers 0-5.

Just a few things to remember, please be patient as you are picking up your child in the pick up line. Do not park and get out of the car in the pick up line. If you are going to park, please use the parking lot. Also, please pull all the way forward so that more cars can get to the curb.  We use the west side of the parking lot. The east side is for Preschool and Head Start pick up.

We also want to remind you about the District dress code. Shirts must have sleeves that cover the shoulders. No tank tops or halter tops unless there is another shirt worn with it. I know it is extremely hot but we have to follow policy.

We appreciate your help and support. It is going to be a great year!

First Grade Newsletter Submission:

We are excited to welcome our new students (and parents) to first grade this year! First grade is a wonderful new learning experience for everyone, and it requires a great deal of time, patience and encouragement from parents.

Daily attendance is important for first graders as they are learning the new procedures for first grade. Please make sure your child is on time and at school each day. The bell rings at 8:25, and the tardy bell rings at 8:35. Students need to be in their classrooms ready to learn before that time.

Homework is now beginning to come home, and it is important for each child to complete it every night and return it to school. The children need to develop good homework habits early in their lives so they can use these skills throughout their school years. The homework also reinforces the phonics and math concepts that we are teaching daily. Spelling lists will begin coming home on September 11th.

We are learning the number words and color words, and we are reviewing the alphabet names and sounds. Please look for our “Math News” letter for information regarding what your child is learning in Math.

If you haven’t the online registration process on the district portal, please do so as soon as possible. If you are not sure how to do this, please contact your child’s teacher. The acceptable use policy needs to be signed on the portal in order for your child to use school computers during their computer time.

We are having some complications with the My Connect group text list for our classrooms. If you receive an invitation to join a text or e-mail group from My Connect, please respond. Please be patient with us as we work through the process of getting everyone in the loop!

We would like to thank all the parents for the extra supplies for our classrooms and for those who signed up to volunteer their time and energy to help our first graders. We are looking forward to a fun and successful year!

We have gotten off to a great start!  It was wonderful to meet all of you at back-to-school night.  Please make sure to fill out all of the paper work and get it back to us as soon as possible. All parents need to visit the Portal to register your child. The Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) must be signed for all students in order to use the computers.

It is very important to have your student attend school daily and arrive on time.  Absences and tardiness do affect academic success.  Important topics are taught daily. We have a very structured outline in all subjects in order to cover the core curriculum.  When students miss school they miss out and many of the classroom experiences cannot be made up.

Students, practice with your spelling sorts and vocabulary words throughout the week. Tests will be given on Fridays.

Read BA (Book Adventure) books 20 minutes daily and record minutes on your PTA calendar. This is part of the required homework for third grade.

Parents, please remember to put your initials in the planner to help your student keep track of his/her daily homework. They earn Country View Bucks for being prepared.

Have students study their multiplication facts for 2 this month. A matching game will be sent home that can be used to help with memorization. 

One last thing - please put your student’s name in his/her jacket.  Many jackets end up in the lost and found each year because names are not in them.

We are off to a great start!!! Thanks for all the wonderful donations of school supplies and materials. We really appreciate your generosity. 

A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!!

4th Grade

Back to top

We are off to amazing start!!!  4th Grade is a great place to be.

The students are working hard and getting into a routine.  Please remember to have your child read 20 minutes each night. Developing a habit of reading each night will lead to success throughout the school years.  Also, ALEK's is up and running so your child should be bringing home their login information shortly if they have not already.  The 4th grade requires 60 minutes of ALEK'S each week at home.  

We will have library on Mondays so please remember to bring back those library books each Monday.  PE is also that day so wear appropriate shoes.

Please feel free to contact any of the 4th grade teachers if you have questions or concerns.  As we work together, we know that it will be a successful year for all of us.

Fifth grade has started off with giant things. We are looking forward to our colossal party September 13th from 9:00-11:00 a.m. It would be helpful to have a tremendous amount of parent volunteers to help with this gargantuan event. Please come dressed, ready for a mammoth mess and a walloping good time! 
 
Thank you for your generous and monumental amount of supplies. It will help substantially. Your children have brought enormous smiles to our faces.

Thanks for all your support from home!

Library Spotlight

Back to top

This year we are going to spotlight some books that are found in our Library.  Each month we will have  a couple of students review books that they have read or highlight a new book.  

The book for this first month is "Wonder" by R. J. Palacio.  This is a great book for all ages to learn about treating others with kindness and not judging on outward appreances.  This book is about a boy named August that is starting the 5th grade for the first time in public school in New York City.  He has been homed school his whole life.  He was born with a deformed face that made it hard for him to talk and eat.  After numerous surgeries, he felt ready to be a normal kid in school.  It follows August, his parents, his sister and his new classmates through out the school year.  I highly recommend this book for everyone to read.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

This year is going great and thanks to all who help make this happen.  We are so happy to have so many new students at our school this year.  We have approximately 660 students up from 534 last year.  We want all our students to feel loved and to feel safe and secure in our school.  We have several safety procedures to ensure your student is safe. 

  • No parents are allowed on the playground, even with a visitor pass, due to Safe School Policies.  However, you are welcome to come and eat lunch with your child at any time or come and volunteer in the classroom.
  • Please bring your student(s) no earlier than 8:15 a.m., to school, especially in the winter when it is very cold outside as the first bell doesn’t ring until 8:25 a.m.  (This does not include those students who eat breakfast at 8:00 a.m.)
  • Please check in at the office anytime you come to the school, for any reason.  All doors are locked except the front door and this is a great way for us to meet and greet you.
  • It is a disruption for students to be checked out early each day, please use your discretion as learning takes place through the end of the day. (We know it is necessary for appointments and other situations, however).
  • Please do not have your student(s) cross the street, on their own, to get to your car, before or after school.  Safety is our Number One Priority and we are committed in keeping your child safe from harm.  Walk with them if necessary.
  • During this time of the year, students are riding bikes.  Please remind your children of the rules of not riding on the street and drivers please watch out for bikers. 
  • Please call the Absence Hotline 452-4405 for your student absences.

Again, thank you for trusting us with your student each day.  We look forward to seeing you often, and encourage you to communicate with your child’s teacher if you have questions or concerns, as they are the first line of interaction with your kids.

Truly,

Mrs. Copeland

Kindergarten parents,

WOW! What an exciting start to our Kindergarten year! We have been working really hard to learn ALL the rules and how to act in a classroom setting. We still have a lot of work to do but we are getting the hang of it.

This month in Language Arts we will be working on letter recognition, letter sounds and beginning sounds as well as sight words. Practice those sight words at home. Remember, they need to check them off with their teacher three times before new words will be sent home.

In math, we are working on shapes and numbers 0-5.

Just a few things to remember, please be patient as you are picking up your child in the pick up line. Do not park and get out of the car in the pick up line. If you are going to park, please use the parking lot. Also, please pull all the way forward so that more cars can get to the curb.  We use the west side of the parking lot. The east side is for Preschool and Head Start pick up.

We also want to remind you about the District dress code. Shirts must have sleeves that cover the shoulders. No tank tops or halter tops unless there is another shirt worn with it. I know it is extremely hot but we have to follow policy.

We appreciate your help and support. It is going to be a great year!

First Grade Newsletter Submission:

We are excited to welcome our new students (and parents) to first grade this year! First grade is a wonderful new learning experience for everyone, and it requires a great deal of time, patience and encouragement from parents.

Daily attendance is important for first graders as they are learning the new procedures for first grade. Please make sure your child is on time and at school each day. The bell rings at 8:25, and the tardy bell rings at 8:35. Students need to be in their classrooms ready to learn before that time.

Homework is now beginning to come home, and it is important for each child to complete it every night and return it to school. The children need to develop good homework habits early in their lives so they can use these skills throughout their school years. The homework also reinforces the phonics and math concepts that we are teaching daily. Spelling lists will begin coming home on September 11th.

We are learning the number words and color words, and we are reviewing the alphabet names and sounds. Please look for our “Math News” letter for information regarding what your child is learning in Math.

If you haven’t the online registration process on the district portal, please do so as soon as possible. If you are not sure how to do this, please contact your child’s teacher. The acceptable use policy needs to be signed on the portal in order for your child to use school computers during their computer time.

We are having some complications with the My Connect group text list for our classrooms. If you receive an invitation to join a text or e-mail group from My Connect, please respond. Please be patient with us as we work through the process of getting everyone in the loop!

We would like to thank all the parents for the extra supplies for our classrooms and for those who signed up to volunteer their time and energy to help our first graders. We are looking forward to a fun and successful year!

3rd Grade

Back to top

We have gotten off to a great start!  It was wonderful to meet all of you at back-to-school night.  Please make sure to fill out all of the paper work and get it back to us as soon as possible. All parents need to visit the Portal to register your child. The Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) must be signed for all students in order to use the computers.

It is very important to have your student attend school daily and arrive on time.  Absences and tardiness do affect academic success.  Important topics are taught daily. We have a very structured outline in all subjects in order to cover the core curriculum.  When students miss school they miss out and many of the classroom experiences cannot be made up.

Students, practice with your spelling sorts and vocabulary words throughout the week. Tests will be given on Fridays.

Read BA (Book Adventure) books 20 minutes daily and record minutes on your PTA calendar. This is part of the required homework for third grade.

Parents, please remember to put your initials in the planner to help your student keep track of his/her daily homework. They earn Country View Bucks for being prepared.

Have students study their multiplication facts for 2 this month. A matching game will be sent home that can be used to help with memorization. 

One last thing - please put your student’s name in his/her jacket.  Many jackets end up in the lost and found each year because names are not in them.

We are off to a great start!!! Thanks for all the wonderful donations of school supplies and materials. We really appreciate your generosity. 

A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!!

4th Grade

Back to top

We are off to amazing start!!!  4th Grade is a great place to be.

The students are working hard and getting into a routine.  Please remember to have your child read 20 minutes each night. Developing a habit of reading each night will lead to success throughout the school years.  Also, ALEK's is up and running so your child should be bringing home their login information shortly if they have not already.  The 4th grade requires 60 minutes of ALEK'S each week at home.  

We will have library on Mondays so please remember to bring back those library books each Monday.  PE is also that day so wear appropriate shoes.

Please feel free to contact any of the 4th grade teachers if you have questions or concerns.  As we work together, we know that it will be a successful year for all of us.

Fifth grade has started off with giant things. We are looking forward to our colossal party September 13th from 9:00-11:00 a.m. It would be helpful to have a tremendous amount of parent volunteers to help with this gargantuan event. Please come dressed, ready for a mammoth mess and a walloping good time! 
 
Thank you for your generous and monumental amount of supplies. It will help substantially. Your children have brought enormous smiles to our faces.

We’ve had an amazing start to the year!  We’re working on ratios in math and starting classroom novels in reading.  Students should be getting their planners signed each night.

Soon we’ll be starting NOVA, cooking in solar ovens, and having some other awesome activities.  Make sure to check your emails for more information.

Thanks for all your support from home!

Library Spotlight

Back to top

This year we are going to spotlight some books that are found in our Library.  Each month we will have  a couple of students review books that they have read or highlight a new book.  

The book for this first month is "Wonder" by R. J. Palacio.  This is a great book for all ages to learn about treating others with kindness and not judging on outward appreances.  This book is about a boy named August that is starting the 5th grade for the first time in public school in New York City.  He has been homed school his whole life.  He was born with a deformed face that made it hard for him to talk and eat.  After numerous surgeries, he felt ready to be a normal kid in school.  It follows August, his parents, his sister and his new classmates through out the school year.  I highly recommend this book for everyone to read.
