The Latest

It's beginning to look like spring!! The sunshine and warmer afternoons have been wonderful. It's a teaser for us, but I'll take some sunshine days between the snow and rain we always get in spring. The kids can't wait until it is nice enough to be able to have lunch time picnics outside again.


When it begins to warm up a bit we tend to have a lot of nice coats and jackets fill up our lost and found. If you are missing any items, please check here. There are some very nice things and we would much rather they find their way home rather than being donated at the end of the school year.


Coming soon is a legislatively mandated Utah State Board of Education School Climate Survey. This is a new requirement every other year. All students will have the opportunity to participate in this survey. Attached is a link for some FAQ regarding this survey. Parents have the option to opt their students out of the survey, if you would like. A list of questions is also in the document. This survey will also be sent to parents shortly. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WGJpTfLm-u-U8-9SpPJybIicjSSf_75s/view?usp=sharing


Fifth and sixth grade maturation is coming up. Maturation will be held on Friday, April 2. Fifth grade will be from 12:30-1:15 and sixth grade 1:30-2:15. ONE parent is welcome to attend with their child. Permission slips will be coming home in the next week or so. If you have questions, please give us a call.


Sixth grade graduation pictures will be taken at school on Thursday, March 25.


If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to give us a call or email.

Middle School Opportunities

Do you have an incoming middle schooler? Starting a new school is exciting and challenging! We are looking for parents who want to be involved in making Spring Canyon Middle School a wonderful place for students - there are lots of opportunities for your talents and interests to contribute to our school community! Please indicate on this brief survey if you are interested and able to serve either on our Community Council and/or in our PTA/PTO. Surveys are due Mar 12 and Community Council elections, if needed, will be Mar 15-17. Please email alison.hansen@nebo.edu with any questions.
