First Three Days Of School

Posted in News & Announcements

The first three days of school were fantastic!  Thank you for getting your student/s to school by 8:40am each day.  Instruction begins promptly at 8:45am.

All students participated in "Eagle Days" on Thursday and Friday.  Eagle Days are part of our School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program at Edgemont.  Like our disclosure statement explains: 

The word discipline is derived from the Latin root disciplina, meaning learning. Discipline is not punishment. Our goal is to teach students self-confidence and self- control. Two of the most important classroom practices used at Edgemont Elementary are positive teacher language and logical consequences. Positive Teacher Language is using words and tone as a tool to promote children's active learning, sense of community, and self-discipline. Logical Consequences allow teachers to respond to misbehavior in a way that focuses on righting a wrong committed and repairing harm done while preserving children’s dignity. 

Our Booster Technicians, the principal, the lunch manager and an administrative assistant developed presentations that were appropriate for all students focusing on our SOAR behavior expectations.  Students were able to review the school rules and expectations while visiting different common areas.
 Eagle Days activities highlighted both positive teacher language and logical consequences.  We feel confident that every student now has an idea of how they can contribute to making Edgemont the best school!

Looking forward to a great year...

Online registration opens August 4; our front office is open to assist you with registration beginning August 6th, 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.  ALL Canyons School District families must complete the online registration every school year.  Fall registration confirms to the school that you still plan to attend, and offers families the opportunity to update contact information, emergency contacts, etc.  If you have questions about registration, please call our front office at 801-826-8500.

Back to School Family Night- Tuesday, August 18, 5:30-7:30pm
This is an evening for families to come and learn who your child's teacher is this year!  Our PTA will hold a very important start of the school year meeting from 5:30-5:45pm in our activity room.  Our PTA provides amazing supports for ALL Edgemont students.  Please show your support by attending the meeting at 5:30pm.  The rest of the evening is set up as an open house.  There are not scheduled times for presentations in individual rooms.  Simply come between 5:30-7:30pm to visit the classroom and walk the common areas of the school.  We are setting up a treasure hunt for all students intended to help familiarize them with their classroom and school.  The treasure hunt will end with a popsicle once completed!  Please plan to join us for this fun Back to School Family Night!  I look forward to meeting many of you during this community event.  We will miss those of you who are unable to join us.   Please check Skyward August 18th to learn who your child's teacher is.

New Elementary Schedule with Brian Boosters

Following recommendations from a task force of elementary school teachers, the Canyons Board of Education approved a new elementary school schedule that will restore early-out Fridays and provide teachers with the tools they need to help ensure success for every student.  The new schedule will give teachers time during the school day to collaborate to ensure each student succeeds.

What does this mean for Edgemont?
Next year, we will have Brain Boosters!  Trained specialists will provide curriculum-based instruction in areas such as physical education, drama, technology and media (library) while teachers meet to collaborate and plan their instructional strategies.
