Hello Parents, 

Enjoy this Holiday season with family and friends.  It is great to see all the support to those in need this time of year and throughout the year.  We have so many in our community in need, not just with physical needs but emotional needs as well.  I admire those who seek out the needs of others not just during this season but all year long. Thanks for all you do! 

SEP Conferences

Thanks for another great SEP conference last week.  It is great to see the support you give. 

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’.  If items continue to increase and become too many, we will donate these items to Tabitha’s Way.

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 HEALTH  (Spanish Version Attached)

Tiffany Boston RN, School Nurse 


You are probably very aware of the fact that there are a lot of cold and flu germs circulating in our community at this time. This same situation can be found throughout the state and even across the country.

In order to reduce the number of students, faculty and staff being exposed to these illnesses, we are asking that you carefully review the attached list that has been provided by the Utah County Health Department. By keeping sick children at home, the chances of spreading the illness is greatly reduced. If your child shows any of these signs while they are at school, we will notify you immediately so that you can take them home until they have recovered.

We greatly appreciate all that you do to ensure that your children are in school each and every day when they are healthy. Attendance is so important for student success. When your child is ill or absent for appointments, etc., please call the school office to excuse them. We greatly appreciate your cooperation in helping us keep our school a safe and healthy place to be.

McKade Kramer - Salem Hills High School Make-A-Wish Child!

Hey Everybody, 

As I'm sure most of you are aware, next week is Salem Hills High School's annual Make-A-Wish week. For those that haven't experienced it yet, it's one of the funnest and feel good weeks of the year.  

I wanted to send out some information so that everyone is aware of what is going on.  

Salem Hills High School Make-A-Wish child this year is McKade Kramer!!! He's from Spanish Fork and attends Sierra Bonita Elementary. I have attached a little info sheet on him. 

Here's the events for the week: (All events will be at Salem Hills High School)

Monday November 12th will be our Make-A-Wish assembly at Salem Hill HS. McKade is a fan of BYU football so we have members of the BYU football team, the Cougarettes, and Cosmo attending and performing. It'll be a fun one. 

Tuesday night at 7:00pm will be a movie night in the small gym at Salem Hill HS. In addition to football, McKade also likes superheroes so we will be showing The Incredibles 2. The movie is $3/person. 

Thursday night at 7:00pm is Manhawk. For those that are new, Manhawk is a night where girls put together and train groups of boys to perform a dance routine. It's a lot of fun seeing what these kids put together. Entry to the event is $5/person.  

Then Monday the 19th will be the Great Skyhawk Gorge. It goes from 5:00-7:00pm and will be in the SSHS gyms. The students like to describe this night as "Costco samples on steroids".  This event is $5/person and $20/family. Payable to the SHHS Finance Office. 

In addition to these events there are couple other things going on to raise money to help McKade. 

Sierra Bonita will have a donation jar in the front office if you'd like to donate any spare change you may have.  

Salem Hills HS will also be selling t-shirts and dog tags throughout the week. I have attached an image of what the shirt will look like. The dog tags will be black with the same image as the shirt on it. Shirts are $10, dog tags are $6, but if you buy both it's only $15. You can pay for these at the Salem Hills HS finance office.  

This is a great week to have fun and do a lot of good.

Thanks so much and if there are any questions let me know
