HELLO:  I am so excited to be at Draper!!  I am sorry it has taken me so long to get a message out to you.  I actually broke my leg in a hiking accident in June and I have just started back to work.  You will see me cruising around with my knee scooter for the next few weeks.  Surgery went well and the prognosis is good.  Search and Rescue had to get me off the mountain so it was truly an adventure. 

SCHOOL COMMUNITY COUNCIL:  We have openings on our School Community Council so I am attaching a copy of the nomination form if you are interested in serving on this very valuable committee.  We meet once a month at a time and date determined by everyone on the committee. 

NEWSLETTER:  I will be sending you a newsletter each week with important information and dates.  I will call it the Dragon Delivery so watch for that in your inbox.

Dear Draper Students and Parents,                                                                        
Welcome back! We are excited for the start of the new 2017-2018 school year.  
Back to School Night – Monday, August 21, 4:00-6:00 pm OPEN HOUSE
This is an evening for families to come and learn about what will be taking place this year in your child’s classroom, including grade level curriculum, general expectations, and events.  It is also a brief opportunity for your child to meet his/her teacher and visit the classroom just prior to the first day of school.  Our PTA will also be present to sign up members and volunteers.  At 5:00-5:15 we will hold a schoolwide meeting in Gym (no classrooms will be open at this time; all families will meet in the gym) for a PTA briefing.
