♦Message from Our Principal
October is here! We are excited about all things fall!!! Now that the weather is starting to get cooler, please remember to send your child with a jacket and make sure to label it with their name. We find a lot of nice jackets in the lost and found and we can get them back to their owner much quicker if it has a name!
We are so excited for our PTA Spirit Night with Papa Murphy's! October 6th – 10th order from the South Jordan or West Jordan locations to help raise funds for our school. Papa Murphy's will donate 15% of your order to Elk Meadows. You can even order online using code: thanks. We appreciate you supporting our school!
Just as a reminder, Fall Break will be coming up October 18th – 22nd. No school will be held this week! We hope that you have some Fall family plans scheduled.
When we return from the break, we know that students will be in the Halloween spirit. We will be celebrating as a school on Friday, the 29th. We will kick off the morning with a performance from our 6th graders. The traditional Thriller dance will happen outside at 9:10 in the bowl at the front of the school. After that, at 9:15, we will hold a school-wide parade that will be held outside. Please send your children to school in costume, as there won’t be time to change. Remember, no full-face masks or weapons. Please keep your costume appropriate for school. Holding our parade outside will help us to keep everyone safe. After students enter the building, we will finish the portion of the parade that is for students. No parents will be invited into the school until the parade has ended and students are back in their classrooms. If you are coming into the school following the parade to volunteer in classrooms, it is important you are wearing a visitor badge. Please be patient with our staff as we check you in. Student safety is very important to all of the Elk Meadows staff! Watch for information from your child’s teacher on plans specific to the classroom.
Don’t forget to get those Reflections projects turned in! We are excited to see your creativity. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to the front office.
Excited for our spooky month,
