♦Message from Our Principal
We are excited for the month of December at Elk Meadows! We have many exciting activities planned to celebrate during the month. See a calendar of events at the end of this letter to stay up to date on all that’s happening at school this month. During the month of December, Elk Meadows will be repeating one of my favorite traditions. We are collecting hats and gloves to donate to one of our Jordan District schools, Colombia Elementary. No one wants to go outside to recess without a hat and gloves. We would like to spread joy to another school by donating those items to those who might not have access. If your student would like to donate items, there will be a collection bin in the front office under the Christmas tree. We will be collecting donations through December 16th.
We will be hosting our second annual cereal box food drive. Our goal is to collect enough boxes to be able to do dominoes all the way around our school, last year we collected just under 1,000 boxes. Let’s top that this year with an epic cereal box dominoes celebration culminating on December 16th. We will start collecting on November 28th. All unopened cereal boxes collected will be donated to the Utah Food Bank.
Our Golden Gate pledge for the month of December is: I will treat others and myself with kindness and respect. What a great focus for the month of December. We think our two service projects will help us to focus on our monthly pledge.
We would like to thank all of our students who participated in our yearbook cover contest hosted by the PTA! We had some awesome submissions!!!
We want to remind parents when dropping off or picking up students to please make sure your children are dropped off on the curb and don’t have to cross a road without a crossing guard.
We would also like to thank our wonderful community for supporting our book fair and our Parents and Pastries event! All of your purchases help give back to our teachers. Thank you for supporting us!

♦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.
