Dear Parents,

As we begin another school year it is time to once again complete the annual “Registration for School”. It is very important that you log on to Skyward to review your information, such as phone numbers, email addresses, emergency contacts, medical information, network acceptable use (in order to use the computers at school), etc. Applications for free or reduced lunch are also found in the online enrollment information. The window for completing Registration For School is August 10th through September 1st.

Schools in Jordan School District are using the Skyward Gradebook. The Skyward program provides access to grades, attendance and other information such as lunch account balances for parents and students through Family Access.

“Skylert” is an automated calling system. One of the services provided is the “Attendance Calling Notifications” if your student is absent. This call is sent out at 9:45 a.m. Skylert is also used to send general information messages and emergency messages to our families using the phone numbers and email addresses on Skyward. It is crucial that your email address and phone numbers are correct in Skyward so that you are able to receive these important message.

On the following page you will find the login and password for the primary guardian, and instructions for logging in. (The primary guardian is the only one who can complete the Registration for School.) You will also find step-by-step instructions for completing your registration for school. Please be aware that most versions of Chrome do not work well with Skyward. If you have difficulty, please try another browser such as Firefox or Internet Explorer.

When you complete your Online Enrollment you will be able to view your student(s) teacher names. Please complete as soon as possible, and before our Back To School Open House on Monday, August 21st so you know who your child’s teacher will be.

Patrons without computer access may use a computer located in the Hayden Peak office.

School starts at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 23rd for grades 2-6, Thursday, August 24th for 1st grade, and Thursday, August 31st for kindergarten.

We encourage you to visit this site often to check grades and lunch account balances. While visiting your Skyward Family Access site please make sure your account information is accurate. Please update your phone numbers, email addresses, or emergency contacts if they change during the school year. If you have any questions, please call the school at 801-280-0722.

This school year is almost over. I can't believe how quickly the time flies when there is lots of learning going on. The testing Olympics were kicked off on April 17. We had opening ceremonies and our testing Olympians marched through our halls with their class flag being cheered on by other students in the building. It was loud and lots of fun. Saturday, April 22, Comcast Cares was held at Hayden Peak. We had over 600 volunteers come to the school and help with landscaping and cleaning projects outside and inside the building. The school grounds look fantastic, and the inside has never looked better. Thank you to all who volunteered and made Comcast Cares Day such a success.

As we wind down the year, we wanted to celebrate some of the things that have happened at Hayden Peak Elementary this school year. Each of the grade levels were asked to share some of the things they are proud of this year.

From 6th Grade: On March 2 all of our sixth grade students had the opportunity to participate in Elementary Engineering Day at the University of Utah. Prior to the field trip each student made a catapult. Through a series of catapult competitions four students were chosen to represent Hayden Peak at the Elementary Engineering Day. Competing from Hayden Peak were Nicole K., Jackson C., Andrew G., and Gavin O. Those four students had the opportunity to compete with four other school’s winners. We are proud to announce that Nicole K. from Mrs. Smith’s class was the overall winner. We also had winners from Hayden Peak in several other engineering completions. Lindsey N., Broc G., and Cameron P. won the straw tower competition. Zach P., Keegan A. and McKay H. won the slowest fish competition. Overall Hayden Peak 6th grade was awarded $300.00 to spend on math and science supplies. It was a privilege to participate in this activity.

From 3rd Grade: This year 3rd grade has had big events in both social studies and science. In connection with learning about the symbols of our country, we put on a Veteran's Day program for the school and for the veterans in our community. The students did an amazing job sharing songs and messages about our country and our veterans. In science, we learned about simple machines. The students built their own simple machines and put on a fair to share them with parents and other students.

From 1st Grade: First grade started off the school year by learning about the 7 Habits.  We read stories and learned some fun songs with actions to help us remember each habit.  We have reviewed our songs and actions throughout the school year.  We had a great time celebrating the 100th day of school in February.  We did counting projects and activities to help us appreciate how much 100 actually is.  We celebrated Dr. Seuss Day in March.  We read Dr. Seuss books and made hats.  We also had a read-a-thon in our first grade hall.  We are really looking forward to our field trip to the zoo on May 2nd!

From 4th Grade: 4th grade has been busy learning all about Utah this school year! In Science we learned all about Utah's environments, animals, soil, and plant needs. We also learned about all the types of rocks and fossils found in Utah and how they are formed. We are working hard at learning the Utah songs in preparation for our "Utah, This is the Place" performance on May 26th at 9am. All are invited to attend!

From Kindergarten: This year in kindergarten has been exciting and full of new things! We had a fun, fall field trip to Thanksgiving Point's farm country where we learned about how animals prepare for winter. In November, Miss Brooke became Mrs. Graham! In December and January we got to explore the world through mapping and "visiting" one country from each continent. March found us celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday with our dads, and now here we are the end of April and rapidly approaching the end of the year. We have loved the time we got to spend with our buddies from 5th & 6th grade and we are looking forward to culture day and our Mother's Day celebration coming up. We can't believe how fast the time has gone, but we are going to soak up every last bit of fun we can before the year is done!

From 2nd grade: This year in 2nd grade we learned all about author's purpose. We learned that Author's Purpose is easy as PIE!! We made apple pies to remind us! We also learned all about animals and their habitats. The students did animal reports and pop ups to show their learning. We also learned all about other cultures as we studied Christmas around the world. We have had a blast learning new things in 2nd grade this year!!

From 5th grade: This year our fifth graders have had a guest teacher come in to give them enrichment lessons from the Junior Achievement program.  These lessons apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace and allow students to learn the value of contributing to their communities.  The best part will be their culminating activity on June 1st.  The entire fifth grade will have the opportunity to visit Junior Achievement City's BizTown!  For this all-day field trip experience, the fifth grade is going to need many chaperones to be sure their students have the best possible experience putting their learned skills to work as they become adults for the day.

We have a really great year and can't wait to see what the future holds! Have a great rest of the school year and summer and we will see you next year!

It is almost spring! Yea! I am so excited for warmer weather and bright colors and flowers popping out of the ground.   Good things are happening at Hayden Peak. We celebrated over 700 students with our benchmark achievement party. Students are given district benchmark tests in math and reading and writing and we compared scores from benchmark 1 to benchmark 2 and students who improved more than 20% or scored 80% or higher on any of these tests were invited to our achievement party. We have just completed benchmark 3 and will soon be planning our benchmark 3 party.

Our students in Kindergarten through third grade just took the mid-year DIBELS reading/fluency test and we have seen growth in reading in our younger students as well. Reading is one of those skills where, if we can get students reading early on, their success rate in school and in the future is much brighter.

Sixth grade completed their STEM fair (formerly known as the science fair). There were fabulous experiments conducted and shown off to the community at the STEM day. Fifth and sixth grade is also using Google classroom with the chrome books and students and teachers are loving it.

We are entering end of year testing season. We will begin testing April 17 and test through May 26. Please understand that these tests are important and give the teachers and administration valuable information about teaching strategies and practices and ways to further improve instructional practices. More information will come as we get closer to the testing dates.

Finally, our school is now administering brief school climate surveys to gather input about the effectiveness of the teachers and administrators at our school. All parents, guardians, and students second grade and higher are invited to participate. These surveys are anonymous and no personal information will be collected. Reports will be made available for teachers and administrators to use in their school improvement efforts.

Here is the link for the School Climate Survey

Thanks for all you do to support Hayden Peak. We love our students, parents, volunteers, faculty and staff! We have the best kids and love what is happening every day!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Beginning February 13, 2017, and continuing through March 31, 2017, our school will be administering school climate surveys. All parents/guardians and students second grade and higher are being invited to participate.

The purpose of this survey is to gather input about school climate and the effectiveness of the teachers and administrators at our school. Responses are anonymous and no personal information will be collected. Reports will be made available for teachers and administrators to use in school improvement efforts. The survey is short, taking less than 10 minutes to complete.

The survey can be found online at and is available in either English or Spanish. There will also be computers available at our school’s parent teacher conferences coming up on March 15th and 16th if you would like to complete the survey at that time. The survey is available in both English and Spanish.

Students will take surveys during the school day. The first page of the survey allows the respondent to opt out of the survey by clicking “I do not wish to take the survey.” If you do not want your child to take the survey, your child may opt out at the time of administration.

Thank you in advance for your participation.
