CSD to offer popular fifth-grade maturation program online

While growing up can be hard, talking about it needn’t be.  To help families rock “the talk” — even in this pandemic year — Canyons School District is offering its popular maturation program online.

From Wednesday, Feb. 24 through July 31, fifth-grade students and their parents will be able to access the program online at no charge through a password protected link. The presentations are conducted by professional speaker Carrie Ann Kemp who has been educating and entertaining young audiences, and their parents, for 20 years.

Through a time-limited license, fifth-grade families will be able to access the programs for boys and girls through a password-protected link. The aim of the program is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved instruction districtwide. Versions are available in English and Spanish.

Detailed instructions for accessing the courses have been emailed to all fifth-grade parents and guardians.

Families with questions are encouraged to reach out to the Main Office.

Elementary Students Invited to Reconsider Learning Options, Requests Accepted through Feb. 14

With the end of the second term approaching, we are again providing students a chance to revisit their learning options.

The elementary-school window for submitting end-of-grading-period change requests is Sunday, Feb. 7 through Sunday, Feb. 14. Those wanting to shift from in-person to one of two remote learning options available, or from remote learning to in-person instruction, will need to complete a change-request form by Feb. 14. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any late requests.

Learning option changes will take effect with the start of the third term on Monday, March 8. No action is required of families who wish to stay with their chosen path.

Throughout the pandemic, we have worked to provide families with in-person and remote learning options so they can choose what works best for them given their educational needs and health considerations. This second change-request period is consistent with that commitment.

The three learning options available are the same as described at the beginning of the year: In-Person Instruction; Online Instruction; or Parent-Guided, District-Supported At Home Instruction. An explanation of those options can be found at canyonsdistrict.org.

Change requests will be submitted using the same Skyward Family Access portal families used to register for school at the beginning of the year. Families simply log in to Skyward, click on the “online forms” button, select “Term 2 Change-Request Form,” and follow the prompts. Please watch this tutorial for more information, or call the Main Office should you need any assistance.

DRAGON DELIVERY                                                                                           January 10, 2021

From Principal Christy Waddell

COVID:  We have 4 confirmed cases of students with Covid this week.   We do seem to have many who are staying home on quarantine because of a parent that tested positive.  Remember, if your child needs to stay home, email the teacher to find out what work they can do so they won’t get behind.

KINDERGARTEN: We need to know everyone in our boundaries that will be coming to kindergarten.  Please fill out this form and give it to the office. Kindergarten.docx

SUPPLEMENTAL KINDERGARTEN: We are offering this again. January 20ththe window will open for you to apply.  This is first come/first serve so if you are interested, please sign up as soon as you can. Here is more information:  https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/general-news/ready-for-big-kid-school-time-to-get-a-jump-on-planning-for-kindergarten/

FRIDAY BOXED LUNCHES/BREAKFASTS:  These will continue throughout the rest of the school year but will only be handed out on Thursday when Friday is a regular school day. Friday January 15 was originally scheduled as a teacher work day so students were not going to attend school. This means no boxed lunch for this Thursday will be handed out.

FREE LUNCHES: This will be through the rest of the school year.

PTA INFORMATION: January 2021 Spirit Night: Wednesday 1/13

Come support Draper Elementary School and Pier 49 Pizza on Wednesday 1/13/2021 from 11:00am to 8:00pm.
