Hello Wasatch Families,
Seeing fundraiser results coming in is an incredible feeling. What an amazing community to be a part of. I am honored to be the principal of such a wonderful school. Thank you all so much for your contributions and support.
Please talk to students about the importance of being in line in the morning when they arrive. This week we noticed a group of students running up to cars on R Street. They were simply excited to see friends as they arrived, but I shudder to think about what would happen if a student accidentally darted in front of a car or slipped and fell in front of a car. When winter arrives, we will also have slippery walks and we want to have this habit well established before then.
This year some students are struggling to keep hands to themselves. Again, they are just excited kids who are eager to play with their friends, but often innocent horseplay turns into misunderstandings that escalate into fights. We are working hard at school to develop the habit of keeping hands to self as part of being a STAR student. Please help us reinforce this at home as well.
Please pick students up promptly after school. We have had students playing near the road and some reports of students throwing things at cars. Any students not picked up by 3:25 need to sit by the flagpole near the front door or in the office to wait for rides. Students who walk home need to be on their way right after school. We do not have supervision for students after that time.
