In partnership with parents and community, our mission at Sierra Bonita Elementaryis to create high levels of learning for every student, celebrate individual differences and abilities, and inspire responsible citizenship and lifelong success.   –Sierra Bonita Mission Statement 

Hello Parents, 

It has been a busy couple of months at Sierra Bonita and the first term has already come to close.  We appreciate all that you do to support our school and your students in our effort to help make a difference.  It was great to see all the parent and family support during our Halloween Parade!  It is fun seeing the students enjoying the events and dressing up!  I also enjoy seeing parents throughout the week working with students and helping out in the classrooms.  It truly makes a difference when our students see their parents coming into the school and showing them how important education is.  Thank you for making a difference for our students and our school!

 

SEP Conferences

Our SEP conferences will be held on November 29th.  Sign-ups will be sent out through Sign-up Genius, so if you have not signed up for a time, please do so before the 27th.  (this will be the same time you signed for the September conferences). This is another great way to show your students how important their learning and education is to you! 

Lost and Found Items:  We have several items in our lost and found back by the lunchroom.  Please have your students take a moment to look for their lost items.  You are welcome to come in and look for items as well, that are your child’s items.  If items continue to increase and become too many, we will donate these items to Tabitha’s Way.

PTA News:

Our Fall Arts Festival is coming up on Monday, November 5th. Students are invited to submit their ORIGINAL artwork in the following categories: Literature, Visual Art (2D or 3D), Photography, Dance, Drama, and Music Composition.  

Visual Art (2D and 3D), Photography and Literature entries will be accepted on Monday, November 5th from 8:30 - 9:00 a.m. on the stage. No entries will be accepted after the start of school on Monday, November 5th.

***There will be no theme that students must follow, but here are a few suggestions for students that need a jumping off point. The suggested themes for 2018 are "I Smile When..." and " I Can be a Hero...".

All submissions MUST have an entry form completed and handed in with it. The forms can be found in the front office and are also attached to this email. 

 

 

School Community Council

Our next SCC meeting will be on November 14th at 11:40.

 

On November 5th from 6-8 pm there will be a presentation on the effects of social media, screen time and device use for parents at Springville High School.  This is a very informative presentation that will change your outlook on how students can be affected.  We will have the same presenter come to our school on November 7th to talk to our 4th-6th grade students.

 

 

Pick-Up Zone & Parking

We appreciate the efforts of all parents and staff members in providing for the safety of students in our drop-off and pick up zones. Please help us to ensure that all students are accompanied by an adult when crossing through the pick-up zone.  Also, thank you for reserving our handicapped parking spaces for those who have need for these parking stalls. We remind you to please park in a parking stall if you need to leave your vehicles to come inside the school.  This allows the flow of the drop-off and pick-up areas to be maintained and keeps vehicles moving forward and not needing to back up!  We have great appreciation for everyone’s efforts to increase safety in our parking lots and drop off and pick-up zones before and after school.

 

Note: By law, bus zones cannot be used as drop off and pick up zones even if there are no buses present!

 

School Checkout Procedures

Please follow the following procedures when you need to check a student out from school before the end-of-school bell rings.  First, share with an office secretary that an early checkout is necessary, second, fill out information and sign name on the checkout sheet located in the office area, and third, wait in the office area until your student arrives in the office. Thank you.

 

Students Walking, Riding Bicycles/Scooters & Crosswalks

We have many students who are walking and riding bicycles/scooters to school each day. We have provided training for students to use sidewalks and to follow the instructions of adult supervisors and our crossing guards. We have instructed students to use the crosswalk in front of the school when crossing 1800 East. Faculty members will serve as crossing guards at this crosswalk. We ask that all parents please instruct their children on these and other safety measures to better ensure that students safely make their way to and from school each day.

 

Spirit Day

We have school spirit at Sierra Bonita, and have designated each Friday as our School Spirit Day. We have nice school shirts and encourage children to wear their school shirts (this year’s and past years’ shirts) or school colors (blue and maroon) on Fridays.  We have a lot to be proud of at Sierra Bonita and want to do all we can to build school pride.

 

 

School Choir

We will be having a Veteran's Day Program on November 9th at 9:20am. Please wear red, white and blue.

There will be another combined choir practice on November 19th at 8:00am.
