How Do I Help My Child With His/Her Math Homework When I Can't Explain It?

What Do I Do When My Child Forgets His/Her Math Book?

What Do I Do When My Child Says, "That's NOT How Mr./Mrs._________ Explained It!"

What Stories Are They Reading and What Reading Strategies Are They Working On?

These are questions that many of us have had, or even conversations that we have had with our children.  Although we may come up with the same answer when working on a math problem, there may be times when your child is confused or frustrated because the way their teacher explained it to them is different than the way you are trying to explain it.  This does NOT mean that you are wrong, or the teacher is wrong, it simply means that we each have different and unique ways of solvng problems.  If you ever run into this problem, you now have a very powerful resource at your fingertips.  Both the reading and math books that your child is using at school, as well as all of the short video clips their teacher uses to explain the concepts, are online and available for you to view with your child 24 hours a day.  Teachers also have the ability to assign homework on this site, which means they can access and complete their work at home.  Teachers may even administer unit tests on this site.  This allows you as the parent to log in and specifically see how your child did on that particular test or assignment.  Below you will find a .pdf document that walks you through the website step by step with screenshots.  You will also find the web address, the username, and the password for all students.

What Do I Need to Know About Online Safety for My Child?

Canyons School District and Lone Peak Elementary are genuinely concerned about all that your children may be exposed to on the Internet.  As times have changed, the way our children communicate with their peers has changed dramatically and often times we do not understand the jargon and bantor.  Students have also found a way to use modern technology to bully and treat others disrepectfully.   For specific information about this increasing problem, as well as links to resources and helpful hints to help your child safe online, please click on the following links:

Chinese Immersion

Informational Video about Immersion

History at Lone Peak:



Lone Peak Elementary established their Chinese Immersion Program during the 2009 - 2010 school year with 50 students. Since then we have added 56 more students each year and currently have Chinese Immersion classrooms in first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grades.  Our original 50 students will be moving to sixth grade in the middle schools for the 2014-2015 school year and 56 more students will join us in first grade. Roughly 280 students of our 700+ student body is participating in our immersion program.  We have found a tremendous amount of success and are very proud of what our students have accomplished over the last few years.  School officials from all over the United States as well as officials from France, Korea, the Fiji Islands, and many other locations have traveled here to see what we accomplishing each day. We have also had local reporters, The New York Times, and Time Magazine here to do stories on our program and immersion in general.  Our teachers truly have made this program one worth celebrating.


Information and FAQ:



Who Can Participate?:
 Admittance into the immersion program here at Lone Peak and throughout Canyons District is done through a lottery system managed by Canyons School District.  Students enter into the immersion program in 1st grade and remain in the program here at Lone Peak through 5th grade.  Your child will then continue participating in the dual language program in middle school.  

Parent Information Meeting:  If you are curious about the immersion program here at Lone Peak, or any of the programs throughout Canyons District, please attend the parent information meeting on October 30, 2014.  The meeting is a general meeting about immersion programs and provides you answers to many of the questions you may have as well as the opportunity to ask school administrators specific questions about their programs.  The meeting will be held at the district office near Jordan Commons - 9361 South 300 East.

Application Process:  Each year, the application window typically opens at the end of September and typically closes the third week of November.  The lottery window for the 2014-2015 school year runs from September 30, 2014 to November 26, 2014.  Visit this website for applications and other information regarding dual language immersion in Canyons School District. http://csdworldlanguage.weebly.com/elementary-dual-language-immersion.html

Lottery: 
School and district personnel will determine the number of spaces that will be available for in-boundary students, as well as spaces for out-of-boundary students. The number of spaces available in each category is based on the school’s enrollment capacity and may be different at each school, depending on the needs of the school to maintain the traditional and dual immersion programs.  In the lottery process, special consideration will be given to:

  • Students with a sibling already in the DI program.  
  • Students with parents that work on staff at the DI school. 
  • Students that speak, read and write the target language at an appropriate level of proficiency (as determined by a  proficiency screening).    
  • Students who are transferring from an out-of-district comparable dual language immersion program.


Right for My Child?:  This is a decision that needs to be made within your family and done for each child.  Although this program may be perfect for one of your children, it may not be the best for your other child.  Consider each child individually and speak to his/her kindergarten teacher.  However, dual language immersion programs may not be an appropraite educational option for children experiencing significant communication delays in their primary language.

 
Typical Immersion Day: 

Grades 1 - 3:

  • Students in grades 1-3 spend half of their day studying math, Chinese literacy and other content areas (science, social studies, P.E., art, music) in their target language of Chinese.  They spend the other half of their day studying language arts, and receiving math reinforcement, as well as studying the other content areas listed above in English.

Grades 4 & 5:

  • Students in grades 4 and 5 spend half of their day studying Chinese literacy, and receive math reinforcement, as well as studying the other content areas (science, social studies, P.E., art, music) in thier target language of Chinese.  They spend the other half of their day studying math and language arts in English and also receive instruction in other content areas.

Raz-Kids

Posted in General Info

PASSWORDS for Raz-Kids:  Parents, we have heard some concern and frustration regarding the Raz-Kids program due to not knowing how to set up a password for your child so that other children cannot access their accounts.  It is unfortunate that this has even happened and we do apologize if your child's account was accessed by another student and their points were used on the site without their knowledge or consent.  There is a way of fixing this and getting your child's "stars" (points) back.  Click here for the tutorial on how to do this:   Star Theft Resolution Video

As for creating a password for your child to prevent this in the future, please click here for this tutorial video:  Parent Access and Password Video

 


 

Dear Parents,

We are very excited to announce that we will continue with our after school home reading program for your children currently attending Lone Peak Elementary. It is an Internet based program and you will have access to everything you need via the Internet. If you do not have access to the Internet in your home, you may always use the public library computers if necessary. However, we want to stress that this is not a required program, nor something your child has to do. With that being said, we strongly encourage you to have your children participate because we believe it will not only help them practice their reading skills, but also help to improve their fluency and comprehension. The program is called Raz Kids.

One really nice feature of this program is that it does not require you as a parent to keep track of reading minutes. You simply need to help them log on, and they are able to do the rest. The program itself also has a fun incentive program built into it. Those students who have used this program before thoroughly enjoy the built-in incentives as well. 

The username your child needs to use to log on is included below. This username attaches them to their current teacher. If you have any problems logging on, feel free to email your teacher for the information or look on our website. You can email your child’s teacher by using the following email format:  firstname(dot)lastname@canyonsdistrict(dot)orgYou may also create a username and password specific for your child if you choose to do so to protect their information and the points/stars they earn.
  
When your child logs in to Raz Kids, they will have access to a number of books that are currently on the grade specific reading levels. They will be able to advance to other levels as they complete and pass off the current level. They will not be able to access books above their level, or advance to another level, until after they complete all the requirements on the current level.  Requirements consist of listening and following along for modeled fluency, reading on their own for practice, and then taking a comprehension quiz. They must get 100% on their comprehension test to move on. They can take the test as many times as necessary until they do get 100%.


We look forward to your child participating in this program with us and believe that it will benefit them tremendously. Please see below for step-by-step instructions on how to log on, as well as your child’s current username. Again, we cannot stress enough that this is not a required program, nor is it one that is graded.  Although the information found on this page is long and lengthy, we can assure you that it really is simple and will benefit your child greatly.

Sincerely,

McKay Robinson
