CONGRATULATIONS Mrs. Johnson!

Posted in News & Announcements

Lone Peak's Teacher of the Year:

We would like to congratulate Mrs. Sharie Johnson on being selected as Lone Peak's Teacher of the Year.  Mrs. Johnson painstakingly monitors every student’s progress on a daily basis in reading, math, writing, and behavior.  After she administers standardized testing, she does her own informal testing to determine where each student is academically.  She will then collaborate with the child’s classroom teacher and then determines a plan of action and what she can do to help them grow and succeed.  Mrs. Johnson has high expectations for every child and doesn’t give up when she encounters difficulties. One teacher said about Mrs. Johnson, "She is absolutely vital to our school.”  Well done Mrs. Johnson, this recognition is well deserved.  We are so fortunate to have you here at Lone Peak!

Kindergarten Numbers & Orientation for 2014-2015 School Year

Posted in News & Announcements

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.

*NEW* I-CANyons Standards Based Report Card K-5

Posted in News & Announcements

Beginning in the fall of 2013, all Canyons elementary schools will use a new I-CANyons Standards-Based Report Card. The report card, crafted by Canyons educators over two years' time and used in 92 classrooms in six schools in 2012-2013, will give parents specific information about their child's understanding of the content. It also will give teachers and parents new tools to help students succeed.

The report card will contain separate reports of the following:

  • A child's mastery of academic standards in language arts and math;
  • A child's learning skills that support academic success; and
  • A child's growth over time on grade-level benchmarks in language arts and math.

In the past, student grades have included subjective factors like attendance, effort, and attitude. In the I-CANyons Standards-Based Report Card, student mastery and work habits are reported separately in order to give a more accurate report of student progress. Grades also will reflect a student's current understanding of the content, and not average lower scores that may have been earned in the beginning of the semester. This will give parents a clear understanding of what students have learned as a result of their experience in school. It also will give parents and teachers the tools to identify precisely where a child needs help.

Please click on the following links to learn more about the I-CANyons Standards-Based Report Card:

After reviewing all of this information and you are still a little confused about the new report cards, please join us during one of the following meetings we have scheduled.  We prefer that you attend these meetings, if you still have questions, rather than spending the valuable parent teacher conference time asking questions about them.

  • Tuesday, November 5 at 4:00 pm in the lunchroom
  • Tuesday, November 5 at 6:00 pm in the lunchroom
  • Wednesday, November 6 at 4:30 pm in either the lunchroom or the library
