Dear Parents and Students:
DAY OF SERVICE:
On April 25, we had an awesome day of service! You may have seen it on a couple of the TV stations that night on the news. We truly appreciate everyone who, organized, assisted and participated in the event. It will be a boon to those groups we served.
If you or your neighbors have need of sandbags for potential flooding in the near future, Wasatch has a plethora of prefilled FREE sandbags available in our west parking lot by the sea crates. Please take as many as needed. We will try to get more bags to fill as we have extra sand. Please spread the word around the community of their availability.
YEAR END–RISE TESTING
The year-end state RISE assessments will be administered on May 9, 11, 16. The whole school will be assessed all at one time from 8-11am with a snack break. By having all our students test, we will have a better understanding of how we need to adjust instruction and intervention for students next school year. We use the data from these state assessments to make goals and determine funding in the school. Your student’s best participation and effort is greatly appreciated. Please remember to eat a good breakfast (breakfast is available in the morning at Wasatch), charge your Chromebook and bring a pair of headphones (no airpods—they must plug into the computer) if you have them. We have some available at the school too.
SCHOOL COMMUNITY COUNCIL ELECTIONS:
Interested in helping Wasatch Junior High continue to excel in its academic excellence? Want to ensure that $100,000 of Land Trust money is allocated on important student needs? Do you have 1 hour a month you can give to achieve this? Then Community Council is where you need to be. There are 3 openings for next year. Come be part of the solution. Please see the attachment for the Candidacy Declaration form.
Parents! School is almost over and many students haven’t purchased a yearbook! They are first come, first served and we’d hate to have your student miss out. If you haven’t purchased one or aren’t sure, please contact Charity Flanagan. Her direct line is 385-646-3701 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Avoid the long lines on yearbook day! Buy a yearbook today!
All library books are due on May 5th. The librarians will be talking about fines and missing books with each student over the next couple of weeks so that everyone is ready for the end of the school year. All fines and missing materials must be paid or returned by the end of the year, especially for students who have ordered yearbooks. In order to make this easier for students, we will be giving each student a yellow fine check card, and we will be marking any library or school fees that are currently owed. For 8th graders, these fine check cards will be filled out and sent home on Thursday, April 28th during English classes. For 6th and 7th graders, the cards will be completed during English classes on Thursday, May 4th. Students who have all fines paid and materials (except Chromebooks) returned by May 5th will receive a prize from the media center!
Please note: Chromebooks, chargers and textbooks are not due until May 25th, so those are not included on the fine check cards. Students who do not return their charger on or before May 25th will be charged a $26 fine. Students who turn in a damaged device may be fined for those damages. Chromebook and charger fines must also be cleared prior to students receiving Yearbooks on May 30th. If you have questions or concerns about fines, please contact Charity Flanagan, email@example.com (385)646-3701. Thank you for helping us end the school year on a great note!”
