Show your teachers some love! Nominate your favorite teacher to become Lone Peak's 2014 Teacher of the Year. The winning teacher will receive prizes and recognitions at an April 22 Canyons Board of Education Reception and Honors Ceremony and take the field at halftime at the May 17 Real Salt Lake game. He or she also will have a chance to be selected as the District Teacher of the Yera, receive additional prizes and recognitions, and be nominated for the Utah Teacher of the Year.
Here's how you can get involved:
1. Download the nomination form at www.canyonsdistrict.org.
2. Complete the form on why you think your nominee should be recognized. Criteria include how the teacher shows that students are making progress, supports the Canyons District vision and goals, and exhibits leadership skills and efforts to promote collaboration, student engagement, and community and family involvement.
3. Print and submit the form to your school's PTA leaders, or, if you are a school employee, to your principal, by Feb. 28. The School Selection Committee will consider nominees forwarded by the PTA and employees.
4. Watch for information on the March 28 Teacher of the Year surprise announcement at your school.
Canyons School District honors Teachers of the Year at every school. Winning teachers will be announced at school celebrations on March 28. The District Teacher of the Year will be announced by the Board of Education on April 22.
It is important that we obtain an accurate list of all children qualifying for kindergarten in the Canyons School District for the 2014-2015 school year. If you have a child who will be five years of age ON or BEFORE September 1, 2014, the child qualifies for next year’s kindergarten program. State law requires that all school districts in Utah abide by the same September 1st entrance cut-off date.
Please fill out the form below and return them to Lone Peak's front office.
If you have neighbors who have qualifying kindergarten children, please share this information with them and tell them to call the school and register.
If you have any questions, please call the school at 801-826-8650.
Dear Lone Peak Family,
We are continuing to have a problem with the school parking lot/bus zone being used as a drop off area in the mornings. We have tried to communicate this with parents through newsletters and other means. Several of our teachers have been disrespected and subjected to foul language, inappropriate hand gestures, and raised voices. Our teachers and staff are only trying to keep all of our 750 students safe, as well as get the buses in and out without complication. Due to this, we have to try something new.
We have spoken with the School Community Council and PTA about possible solutions and are going to start something new on Tuesday, January 21. We will be placing cones at the entrance of the parking lot/bus loading zone and will not allow cars to pull into the parking lot/bus loading zone until all the buses have come and gone. Cones will only be moved for teachers, staff, and substitute teachers. Once the buses have all arrived and left, the cones will be moved. However, we ask that you still use all other pick up and drop off areas around the school rather than the bus zone.
We have attached a map that includes all of the areas designated for pick up and drop off areas. Although these areas have been here for years, many of you may not be aware of them, or have just not been taking advantage of them. Please look at the map and take advantage of these specific areas. Regardless of which area you choose to use, please have your children use the crosswalks.
Please understand that we as the Lone Peak Staff are only trying to do everything possible to keep your children safe. We are trying to avoid any accidents and serious harm involving your children and all of the wonderful students we have been entrusted with each day. We have teachers, and the majority of the time I too am out there, to welcome your children and get them safely in the school. Please cooperate with us and help us do all that we can in order to keep them safe.
One last concern that we have regarding this is the possibility of increasing the number of students tardy because parents will wait until all the buses have left in order to pull in the front. Please help us by using the designated areas and not create congestion on the roads by sitting and waiting for this to happen. If you were to see your children at recess, you would know that they will be fine walking a little further in order to get to their doors in the morning. None of us like the cold, but dressing appropriately will help alleviate this and will help in the overall cause of keeping everyone safe, arriving on time, and respect shown to all trying to keep our children safe.
Thank you so much for your help and cooperation with this.
