US News Utah’s Top Ranked Elementary School Badge

Grizzly Growl: May 19, 2023

Dear Grizzly Families,What a week we’ve had a Granite! We were awed by our 3rd Graders’ production of School House Rock, we got to see our kindergarten pirates go on a treasure hunt, and we had our last reading parties and birthday tables of the year! We are looking forward to all the fun things to come next week, and also wishing for more time with your amazing kids. The end of the year is always a bittersweet season full of goodbyes and new beginnings. Report Cards – Report cards and assessment information will be sent home on Thursday, May 25th. 3rd-5th grade’s RISE reports can be accessed on Skyward sometime during July. Please keep an eye on your email for the release of these reports. ​Last Day of School Important Information – Grades 1-5 will celebrate their last day of school on Friday, May 26th. 

  • Students are in school for 4 hours, so we dismiss at 1:00pm. 
  • Transportation is still provided as usual, though there may be delays to bus routes due to all schools having 4-hour schedules. 
  • We do NOT serve breakfast or lunch on the last day. 

Last Week Safety: Please remember next week, to send your students with lots of sunscreen on. There are a lot of outdoor activities. The school can not give sunscreen to students, due to possible allergy and safety concerns. Students will also do a lot of activities and need shoes suitable for running (not flip flops).
