About Me

We are so excited for another great year at Wasatch! This year, we have set three new goals for ourselves and our students.  Goals that cannot be achieved without the support of our entire community!

Our first goal is to increase writing across all content areas.  To achieve this goal we purchased the Units of Study Writing Program for every teacher.  Teachers will also participate in regular professional development to assist them in implementing this new program.

Our second goal is to close the achievement gap for our low income student population.  Teachers and staff members will be engaged in a number of professional development opportunities to assist them with this goal. 

Our last goal is to expand our Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) to strengthen our culture of collaboration among all teachers and staff members.  Each week grade level teams come together to plan and work with academic coaches and other district personnel to improve the teaching and learning occurring in their classrooms. 

Teachers and staff members are committed to educating your children.  We need your commitment:

1.Ensuring your student gets to school on time every day

2.Communicating any concerns or struggles with your child’s teacher in a timely manner

3.Reading with your child every day

Working together, we can achieve great things!
