Happy Fall y’all! Tuesday was the first day of fall and I couldn’t be happier! Fall is by far my favorite season, how about you? Besides the excitement of fall we also had a wonderful week with students meeting with teachers and tutors, checking out laptops, calculators, and physics kits. We have some important news below so please read and if you have questions please let us know. Thank you!
Office Closed: Please be aware that the office will be closed tomorrow Friday, September 25th.
Office Appointments: If you need to come to school we ask that you make an appointment. You can schedule an office appointment https://calendly.com/amanda-johnson-8/office-appointment or if you need to meet with a teacher please contact them directly. We are still setting appointments for families who need to come into the school to pay fees or picking up items from the school. Please remember to wear a mask and maintain social distancing when you enter the school.
STAR and RI Testing: We have had many students take the STAR and RI but we still have many who have yet to take it. Every student is required to take each test. If your student is unsure how to take the tests, please have them reach out to their mentor teacher or Mrs. Davis at Elena.Davis@slcschools.org
Innovations 101 Student Assembly: We know this is a trying time and there are a lot of questions. On Wednesday, September 30th at 9:30 am we are having an Innovations 101 assembly where teachers will help explain and break down the day to day for students.

GEAR UP College Prep: GEAR UP students have the opportunity this fall to participate in a two-day college prep retreat. USU STARS! is offering six different retreats in three locations throughout the state, so you can find a date and location suitable for you. The retreats will help students prepare for college by covering such topics as:
- Financial Aid
- Scholarship Applications
- Assistance with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- Developing Leadership Skills
We recommend registering as early as possible, as space is limited for the safety of participants. Each retreat will begin on Friday at 4:30 pm and end on Saturday at 3:30 pm. Students are responsible for their travel to and from retreat locations, but all food and hotel accommodations will be covered by GEAR UP. Find more information https://utahstars.usu.edu/camps/usu-stars-college-prep-retreats or call Amanda to get more information 801-481-4947.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay healthy and safe. Please email the principal, Pam Pedersen, (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any concerns or great stories from the first two weeks of school!
