Welcome Back

LAYTON ELEMENTARY SKYHAWKS

2022-2023

Layton Families,

We hope you are having a wonderful summer and are almost ready to send your children back to school. Teachers and staff are starting to prepare and plan for students to return, and we are getting excited to begin a new school year.


We have a few staff changes this year. Mrs. Berensen has moved from 5th grade and will be sharing a 3rd grade teaching position with Mrs. Gallegos. Mrs. Larsen has moved from 6th grade to 5th grade, and Mrs. Barnes has moved from 4th grade to 6th grade. We also have two new teachers at Layton Elementary. We'd like to welcome 1st grade teacher Mrs. Knavel and 4th grade teacher Mrs. Flohaug.


Please review this newsletter in full. It includes important information and dates you will need as we approach the new school year. We hope you know how much we love you and your amazing children. Please reach out if you need anything.


Kindly,

Principal Melissa Pendergast
