Wanted: Second-Grade Students for New Spanish Immersion Program

Are you interested in having your second-grade student immersed in learning Spanish through elementary school and beyond?

Canyons District has openings in its new Spanish Dual Language Immersion Program at Midvalley Elementary in Midvale.

The District recently held a special lottery for seats in the program, which is scheduled to start this coming fall and was approved by the Canyons Board of Education to meet growing demand for Spanish immersion classes. While interest was high, we still have a critical number of openings for students who are entering the second grade. If we don’t fill these spots, Midvalley won’t be able to staff a second-grade class.

Children from all parts of Canyons may apply, but families need to act soon in order to provide the District time to make hiring decisions and other preparations. To be considered for placement in the program, please complete the “2020-2021 Late Lottery Application” form found at this online portal by 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 1.

CSD Survey Seeks Parent Input on COVID-19 Back-to-School Action Plan

To the end of maintaining safe, welcoming, and prepared schools during the ever-changing era of COVID-19, CSD is hard at work on a Back-to School Action Plan well in advance of the Aug. 17 first day of school for the 2020-2021 school year. 

To aid in the creation of this important operational blueprint, Canyons District is seeking parent input through a survey that will gauge sentiment about the return to school in fall 2020 as the country is in the midst of a global pandemic.

Click here to complete the survey if you have not yet received one.  

The proposed operational blueprint, which corresponds with the color-coded levels of risk as identified by state officials, will address how CSD will provide access to educational, transportation and nutrition services while also adhering to health guidelines.

Summer Reading Logs

Dear Lone Peak Family,

Another summer break is on its way. We want to help you motivate your child to read all summer long. Summer reading helps to promote reading growth in fluency and comprehension. More importantly, it can help to develop a love of reading.

This summer, we will promote summer reading through the use of a reading log. Children can record the minutes they spend reading on the log. In addition, any time spent on Lexia Reading or participating in a library program can be recorded on the log. In this way, we can honor student choice while reading.

Students will be able to earn different awards based on the number of minutes they read. Students who read 500 to 999 minutes will receive the Brave Award. Students who read 1000 to 1499 minutes over the course of the summer will earn the Braver Award. Students who read 1500 to 2000 minutes over the course of the summer will earn the Bravest Award. Each award level will also be able to spend school dollars at the Lone Peak Reading Store next September.

**Logs are due to teachers on Friday, August 28, 2020.**

If you need suggestions about what books your child should be reading, there are many websites to access. Here are some recommended lists for your reading use.

No matter what reading lists you choose, there are important ideas to consider when choosing a “just right” book for your student.

  1. Can they read the material with few mistakes?
  2. Does the book make sense to them?
  3. Are they able to answer questions about the events and characters in the book?
  4. Is the book interesting to them?

We hope your child enjoys this summer reading challenge. We hope to give out many prizes next year!

Sincerely,
Tracy Stacy, Principal
