LITERACY WEEK:  Thanks to the PTA!!  We have fun things planned all week.  There is a flyer you can access here.  Literacy Week.pdf 

GIRLS ON THE RUN: We will have this at Draper this Spring.  I am attaching a flyer with all the information.  Fill-In 2019 Spring Program Flyer- Draper.pdf 

FROM THE PTA:  Just to check in with those of you who would like emails from Draper Elementary PTA, need to update your email address or for those of you who have not been receiving emails, please respond to the PTA email and let us know. Thank you.This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

PARKING LOT: The school board has decided to move forward with our parking lot. This is what the board summary says: Business Administrator Leon Wilcox told the Board of Education that a civil engineer has been hired to work with the city to design a second access road to Draper Elementary. Construction on a portion of the project could begin this summer, Wilcox said, but design and engineering work, and an interlocal agreement with Draper City, would need to be completed first. Given the time constraints, the work may need to be done in two phases. This is an accelerated timeframe for this project, which was initially scheduled for summer 2020.

I will keep you updated with how it is progressing.  I was involved with the total rebuild of Butler Elementary School so I am very familiar with what this is going to take.  I will be involved with most of the meetings. It will cause some inconvenience for a while but as long as we keep in mind that in the end we will have about 150 more parking spaces and an additional way in and out of the school, I think we can be patient.

From Principal Christy Waddell

PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCE:  Do you have your appointment?  If not, get that done.  The conferences are the week after this week.

DRESS WARMLY:  This week is supposed to be very cold.  We do not go outside unless it is above 22 degrees.  Please send your students with appropriate clothes to stay warm outside. We are hoping we can go outside for recess.

INSIDE RECESS HELP: If we have an inside recess we could really use some help supervising the students inside their classrooms.  I like to give the teachers their full lunch break so they will feel ready for the last couple of hours of school.  If you notice the feels like temperature is under 23 I would love it if you could just drop in and help anytime between 11:45 and 1:00. Each class gets about 20 minutes of recess time. You do not need to call ahead of time, just drop in.  You do have to be on the district volunteer list.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!

TOYS & ELECTRONICS: Please make sure your children leave these things at home.  We have had several things go missing recently and the teachers just do not have the time to try and keep track of the items students bring from home. Pokémon cards seem to be an especially big problem in the younger grades. We appreciate your support with this.

DRESS FOR WINTER: Whenever possible, your children will be going outside for recess. It is very important they bring/wear clothes that will help them stay warm and dry while playing outside.  If there is a puddle the kids will find it and jump in it.  

TEACHER OF THE YEAR: Nominations are now open for Teacher of the Year.  Please fill out an application to nominate a teacher that has made a difference in your student’s life.  

SPEECH: 2nd Grade will be having a Speech Screening on Wednesday, January 16, 2019. All students will be seen in small groups (except those already receiving speech-language services). If there are concerns, the Speech-Language Pathologist will follow up with you. If you have any questions or do NOT want your student to be included in this screening, please contact Emily Christofferson (SLP) at .
