Message from Our Principal

Falcon Families,

 Happy New Year! We hope that you enjoyed your holiday break and got to spend some quality time as a family over the holidays.  I wanted to express my gratitude for all of the donations in support of our hat and glove and cereal food donation drive.  We were able to donate LOTS of hats and gloves to Colombia Elementary School right here in Jordan School District.  Together we collected over 1,000 boxes of cereal that were donated to the Utah Food Bank.  We have the most giving community, thank you for your help and support! 

 We are excited to get back to our routine and back to learning.  Our Golden Gate pledge this month is, “I will be in charge of my own happiness”. I love this pledge because it is a skill we need to master even into adulthood! Teachers will be looking for a student who exemplifies our Golden Gate pledge as well as a student who has made significant academic progress to nominate for our Student of the Month award.  Please talk with your children about ways that you find happiness and ways that they can too!

 It's time to begin our kindergarten registration.  If you have a child who turns five on or before September 1st 2023 and lives in the Elk Meadows boundaries please pass along the following information.  Kindergarten orientation will be held online this year.  To register please provide the school with a birth certificate, immunization record, proof of residency, parent/guardian picture ID and an eye exam.  Registering early helps us to know our numbers for next year and guarantees we have enough students to fill our classrooms.  Please invite those you know to help us be prepared for next year’s kindergarten classes. 

 I wanted to remind you of a fantastic way you can support our PTA here at Elk Meadows.  Amazon Smile is easy and free for you to sign up for.  Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon purchases to our school.  On the back of this newsletter you will find information on how to sign up using your computer or mobile device.   

 Here are some important dates for you to remember:

January 16th is Martin Luther King Day- No School

January 17th is Grade Transmittal Day- No School

 We look forward to the learning and growth that will happen at Elk Meadows this coming year!

 Best,

Tiffany Smith

♦New Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures 

Our east parking lot has been reconstructed to meet the needs of our many buses.  The parking lot that is accessible from 9800 South (directly in front of our school) will now be the parent pick up and drop off lot. Please watch the video below so that our drop off and pick up can run smoothly, but most importantly keep our students safe.
