WEEKLY UPDATES

Weekly Update Sent 5/8/2020

It's almost the weekend, and while they are very different now, we hope you will have some time to do something fun!

On the Innovations Instagram this week we highlighted some amazing talents our students have. We were blown away by a musical piece, awed by drawings and photography, and read a great opinion piece in the Salt Lake Tribune written by one of our students. We hope you have a chance to develop your talents right now or even learn something new. 

One of Innovations' many talents is our AMAZING teachers! This week is teacher appreciation week and many of the students sent love and thoughtful messages to teachers who make a difference in their lives. If you haven't given a shout out to a teacher who has made a difference in your life it's not too late! 

CAP AND GOWN EVENT: On May 15th, from 5-7 pm we will have a drive-up, "Honk and Wave" event to pick-up your cap and gown. Information on this event was sent directly to the class of 2020. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to Amanda at 801-481-4947 or email at Amanda.Johnson@slcschools.org

Amanda will be able to assist you.

CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT: Do you want to enroll for the Fall semester? Enrollment has begun and you can find out how to apply in Nicole’s Counselor Canvas account.
