PTA NEWSLETTER: February Newsletter.pdf 

CHINESE NEW YEAR:We will have 2 Chinese New Year Assemblies on Monday January 27th.  The first one is for kinder-2ndgrade and will be from 9:30-10:30. The second one is for 3rd-5thgrade and PM kinder and will be from 2-3pm.  All DLI kids will be in both assemblies.  They are exactly the same. Parents are invited but please come to ONLY ONE ASSEMBLY.  We may have the parking for everyone but we do not have room in the gym for everyone.

SUPPLEMENTAL KINDERGARTEN: There will be a full day kindergarten at Draper Elementary next year.  It is considered supplemental kindergarten because there is a fee for it. Go to this link to get more information: https://ksih.canyonsdistrict.org/ksih/#/start  I expect we will have many who are interested in this.  

In-N-Out Spirit Night: IN-N-OUT night Tuesday, February 4 from 5-9 pm, Drive Thru or Dine In but you have to mention DRAPER ELEMENTARY… please mention DRAPER ELEMENTARY or the ticket will not count for the total we get back. See you TUESDAY FEBRUARY 4. The PTA has worked hard to keep our spirit nights to only ONE a month and have been extremely grateful to the community for the amazing support. Thank you again to everyone. 

KINDERGARTEN:  It is time to register for kindergarten for next year.  Please contact our office if you have a child who will be in kindergarten next year.  I often have parents who want to have a permit to have their child attend Draper. Please go on line and fill out a permit as soon as possible.  I will be denying it but putting your child on a wait list.  I should know by April if I can accept those applications. 

Teacher of the Year: To honor the stellar teachers who encourage students to seek their dreams and reach for the stars, the Canyons Board of Education and Administration encourage members of the community to submit nominations for the 2020 Canyons Teacher of the Year Award. Students, parents, patrons, PTAs, business partners, and Canyons employees are all invited to nominate an educator starting now through Monday, Feb. 3. All teachers who have completed at least one year in the classroom are eligible for consideration. She or he also must showcase outstanding teaching practices, professionalism, and involvement in the school community. Nomination forms are submitted to the school where the teacher is employed. https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/images/TOYnominationform.pdf Each school will have a Teacher of the Year Selection Panel, including the principal, a school employee and a School Community Council member, to consider the nominations from the community and employees.

Ready for ‘Big Kid’ School? Apply for CSD’s Supplemental Kindergarten Program

Ready for “big kid” school? Kindergarten is a critical year in a child’s education, and to make sure students get off to a strong start, we are expanding the number of hours some of our kindergartners spend in the classroom. Starting on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 10 a.m., Canyons District will begin accepting online applications for its Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Our school is among 20 throughout the District that is offering the program. Students must be 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2020 to participate in the opt-in, tuition-based program. Space is limited and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Phase one of the application process will end on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 11:59 p.m., and by Feb. 12, families will be notified of whether their students have been admitted to a school of their choosing or placed on a waiting list. Canyons District will continue to accept applications after Feb. 5. Students who apply after that date will be added to a waiting list or invited to enroll at schools that still have openings. 

Students who are accepted into the program will receive nearly four additional hours of instruction every school day. The participating children begin and end school at the same time as the school’s first- through fifth-grade students. Cost for the program is $2,950 a year, and can be paid in monthly installments. A 10 percent discount is available for parents and guardians who pay the yearly tuition in full at one time.
