Envision Utah Survey
Envision Utah is working with Governor Herbert to gather information from Utah citizens to help build a vision for Utah’s future. The method for gathering information is a survey titled Your Utah Your FutureThe goal is to have 50,000 participate, and schools have been invited to help get the word out. The survey is located at  and will be live beginning April 2. Your participation will assist our state and Sierra Bonita. Our school will receive $1 for each adult that completes the survey and marks Sierra Bonita at the end of the survey.

It’s expected that it will take anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes to take the survey on how deeply you want to dive into any of the topics. By completing this survey your voice will be heard in shaping Utah’s future, and at the same time, you will be supporting Sierra Bonita Elementary. Thank you!



Class Request Information for the 2015-2016 School Year

Sierra Bonita will continue the same process used last year regarding class requests and special considerations for next school year. Parents who would like to share a request (including AM/PM kindergarten) or other information with me regarding their child’s class placement for next year, are invited to come to the school’s front office during the request window of May 18-29 to receive and fill out a request form.

In order for a request to be accepted, it must be completed according to the guidelines on the form, have a secretary’s approval, and be received by a member of our office staff during the request window (May 18-29).

Forms will not be sent home. The gathered information/requests will be combined with other academic and school information as I work to balance classes according to range of student ability, behaviors, gender, and the number of students. If you have any questions, please visit with me or a member of the school’s office staff.   

Thank you.
