Dear Copperview Families,
What a great year we’re enjoying at Copperview Elementary. It’s hard to believe we only have three more months left of school, THANKS to all of you for supporting your student’s education during these challenging times. Nelson Mandela once said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” With your support, we’ve truly “done the impossible” this year.
We want to share a few of the highlights from this past month. During the week of Valentine’s Day, we celebrated Kindness Week. We were so impressed by all the kind acts our Cougars showed to their school, the staff, and their peers. We also enjoyed Digital Citizenship week, with a focus on making great choices online. This year’s events required an increased focus on online learning, which makes being a good digital citizen even more important.
During March, we have wonderful experiences planned at Copperview. This week was Read Across America Week, with an emphasis on the importance of reading. Look for some great ideas and books to come home with your students. We will also host our annual Penny Pride Fundraiser. Clean out your couches and pockets and send your loose change with your students. The money raised will be used for school field trips during the 2021-22 school year. We will also seeking your feedback in an upcoming survey. Every other year Canyons School District asks our parents, students and staff to complete a CAYCI survey. Our goal is to have all families complete it and return it. Your responses to this survey are very important to us and will help identify things that are going well and where we can work to improve. Please look for the survey to come home on March 8th. When your child returns the parent survey, they will receive a small prize and be entered into a drawing for larger prizes.
Last but not least, Copperview Elementary needs a new PTA President and other PTA officers. It’s a great opportunity to be involved in your student’s educational experience, and our current leaders, including Josie McClendon, can share all the awesome work that the PTA has been done at Copperview this past year. The PTA is a vital part of our school community and provides great services to our staff, students and community as a whole.
