Hayden Peak Day of Caring! Save the Date!

We are so fortunate to have the best community and support! Over the last couple of years, we have had the opportunity to participate in Comcast Cares Day and your support has been overwhelming. This year, we will be hosting the Hayden Peak Day of Caring! Ivory Homes has generously donated trees for us to plant. In addition, we will do some weeding and clean up in and around the school. Please mark your calendar for Saturday, May 18, 2019 and plan to volunteer! We look forward to another wonderful day of volunteering, music, and fun!

Valentine's Day is Thursday, February 14, 2019. While it is often thought of as a holiday for couples, it is also a wonderful day to let those you care about know how you feel! Here are a few Valentine Family Date ideas:

Go bowling
Take a city tour
Do a rose drop for widows
A dollar store blitz
Dinner and a movie
Go to the zoo
Take cookies to neighbors
Kids' choice!

SPOTLIGHT! Girls Who Code Club

Hayden Peak Elementary offers many opportunities for our students to expand and share their talents in after school programs. Over the next few months, we will spotlight each of the programs and how your child can participate. This month we are spotlighting the GIRLS WHO CODE CLUB!

This is a brand new after school program for 4th, 5th grade girls. What is coding? It means to construct a set of instructions to implement an algorithm in order to solve a problem. Those instructions then allow a program to run, whether it is on a computer, tablet, or phone.

The club goes from Tuesday, January 15-March 19, 2019. Girls in the 4th and 5th grade will have fun learning this valuable skill.

Welcome back from a long winter break and welcome to 2019! This is the time of year when winter takes a toll on school attendance. Snow and slushy weather can sometimes keep parents from getting their children to school. So can the colds, fevers and earaches that often come with the winter months.

These absences, even if they are excused, can add up to academic trouble. Students miss out on learning if they aren’t in class and we want every child to be actively engaged in learning. There’s not much we can do about the weather, but there are two key steps every family can take to help avoid absences this year.

  1. Develop back up plans for getting your children to school in winter weather. That could mean checking with other families who have a car that can manage in the snow or forming a “walking school bus” to walk your children to school with other parents. If you’re stuck, call the school. We can connect you with other parents or staff members who can help.
  2. Keep your children healthy.Dress them warmly for the cold weather and make sure they’ve got hats and gloves. Encourage them to wash their hands regularly, and send them to school with a bottle of hand sanitizer. If your children do get sick, talk to a doctor or the school nurse about whether they should come to school and when it is okay for them to return.

Above all, let us know how we can help. We want your children and all our students to succeed, and that means attending school every day possible.

SPOTLIGHT!
Reading Buddies After School Program

Did you know that Hayden Peak offers a Reading Buddies program after school on Wednesday afternoons? Students from Copper Hills High, West Hills Middle, and Hayden Peak Elementary volunteer to read with our students here at Hayden Peak. This program has been a huge success and we are grateful to all those who volunteer in this effort. If you are interested in volunteering or having your child participate in the Reading Buddies please contact the office.

Boundary Update and Permits for 2019-20
The Jordan School District Board of Education has determined that the boundaries for Hayden Peak Elementary will remain the same for the 2019-20 school year. The Board of Education has also made changes to our school choice permit process. As part of this change, all Jordan District schools are required to revoke permits to 90% of school capacity. At Hayden Peak there will be approximately 85 permits revoked for the 2019-20 school year. Families have been notified if their permits have been revoked. Those families wishing to attend Hayden Peak on permit for the 2019-20 school year will need to apply online for a permit.

If you would like to request a permit for your child to attend a school other than their boundary school, please click the link below.

As a reminder, permit applications submitted during the month of December will not be approved on a first-come, first-served basis but will be approved according to the Board priorities, which are posted at boundary.jordandistrict.org

SPOTLIGHT! After School Activities

Hayden Peak Elementary offers many opportunities for our students to expand and share their talents in after school programs. Over the next few months, we will spotlight each of the programs and how your child can participate. This month we are spotlighting the DANCE CLUB.

The dance club provides an opportunity for your student to learn different dances, cooperation, and teamwork. They meet twice a month on Thursday afternoons after school for 30 minutes. Please contact the school for more information on how your student can participate.

We wish you all a joyous holiday.
