I would like to welcome each of you to the start of a wonderful year at Copperview Elementary! I look forward to working together to provide the best education for your child(ren). We work hard to ensure each child a positive learning experience that enhances self-esteem and fosters fellowship among the family, student, teachers, and staff.
Suggestions for positive school-home relationships:

- Contact your child’s teacher immediately with questions or concerns.
- Check your child’s backpack or work folder each day for notes and homework.
- Please make sure that your child is at school ON TIME each day.
- Support learning and your children will follow your example. Thank you for modeling good manners, positive attitude and kindness.
Thank you again for your continued support!
Who We Are
Copperview Elementary is located in the middle of a well-established community in Midvale City. Some of the earliest homes built in the Salt Lake Valley are within the school’s boundaries. The area has produced many noteworthy citizens, including former Congressman Dan Marriott, Astronaut Don Lind, and prominent civic leader Maurine C. Jensen. The school also serves students living in a rapidly expanding area of apartment houses and mobile home units.
At Copperview Elementary, United Way, of Salt Lake partners with Canyons School District, the City of Midvale, and many other community partners to provide academic and social supports to ensure that all students succeed. Title I preschool, an After School Program, classes for adults, a monthly mobile food bank, and health and social services are just a few of the enhanced programs that our community school is able to offer with the help of its partners.
Cougars are SAFE, KIND, and RESPONSIBLE!
