Principal's Message

We encourage every parent to get involved this year by committing to three hours of volunteer service to our school. When we all work together, wonderful things can be accomplished!

SEP conferences are scheduled for October 1-5, 2018.  This is a great opportunity to start or continue ongoing conversations with your child’s teacher, learn how to help your kids do their best in school, and let your child know that what goes on in school will be shared at home.

Here is a link with some excellent ideas and resources to help parents with their child’s conference:  https://www.edutopia.org/blog/parent-teacher-conference-resources-matt-davis

PTA will host the Scholastic Book Fair on October 1-5 in the Three Peaks Elementary library.


Please remember that school begins at 8:55 am every day and dismisses at 3:30 pm on M, Tu, Th, and F.  Wednesday is early out and school is dismissed at 1:30 pm.  The Kindergarten schedule is a bit different:  Morning Kindergarten is held 8:55-11:40 (M, Tu, Th, F) and Wednesday 8:45-10:45.  Afternoon Kindergarten is 12:45-3:30 (M, Tu, Th, F) and Wednesday 11:30-1:30.

If you are unsure of the bus your child will ride, please call the bus garage at 435-586-2864.

Let's have a wonderful year!!

 

If you are picking up or dropping off your child, please remember not to park along the red curb in front of the building between the orange cones.  If you need to come in the school, please park your car in the parking stalls and not along the curbs.  Please make sure to slow down in the drop off zone and be aware of children and other cars. This procedure will ensure the safety of the students at Three Peaks Elementary.

The Three Peaks Elementary Preschool parking lot is to be used only for parents of preschool students.  Please do not park your car in their parking lot to pick up or drop off your students.  Thank you.

One hundred years from now 
It will not matter 
what kind of car I drove, 
What kind of house I lived in, 
how much money was in my bank account 
nor what my clothes looked like. 
But the world may be a better place because 
I was important in the life of a child.
