Dear Parents,

     Nebo School District offers free hearing screenings for all students in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 6th grade.  Your child will receive this screening at Sierra Bonita on Wednesday September 6th. It takes about 3-5 minutes.

     If for any reason your child does not pass this screening, he/she will be rescreened two weeks later. Often a child fails to pass the first screening due to fluid in ears, congestion, excessive ear wax, etc. This is why we rescreen them. Many children who fail the first screening go on to pass the second screening.

     If, however, your child does not pass the second screening we will let you know. If this is the case, it is recommended that your child receive a full evaluation, which is offered free of charge through the district.

     If for any reason you would prefer your child’s hearing NOT be screened, please return the bottom portion of this form to your child’s teacher before September 6th.  If you have any questions, please contact us. Thank you!

August Newsletter

Mon, 08/07/2017 - 4:50pm

In partnership with parents and community, our mission at Sierra Bonita Elementary is to create high levels of learning for every student, celebrate individual differences and abilities, and inspire responsible citizenship and lifelong success.   –Sierra Bonita Mission Statement 

Hello Parents and Students, 

Welcome to another school year!  We are excited to see all of our students back and in the classrooms!  Summer is a great time to re-energize and get ready for the new-year.  Things have been buzzing around the school with many new teachers and staff moving into their classrooms.  We have a great team of teachers this year that are eager to meet your students and help them learn and reach their potential.  It is great to be a part of the Sierra Bonita community!  We have such great support from parents and our surrounding community!  This truly helps our students be successful!  I look forward to seeing all of you soon!  Thanks for all you do to make Sierra Bonita great! 

Lost and Found Items:  We have several items in our lost and found back by the lunchroom.  Please have your students take a moment to look for their lost items.  You are welcome to come in and look for items that may be your childs’.  If items continue to increase and become too many, we will donate these items to Tabitha’s Way.

PTA News:

We want to welcome our new PTA President-Airy Morris, President Elect-Chantille Robertson, Secretary-Kara Murri and Treasurer-Laura Jones. 

Our PTA plays a vital part in the success of our school and students.  Many of our activities that we enjoy throughout the school year such as the Book Fair, Mother/Daughter and Father/Son Nights, Family Movie Night, Volunteers for class parties and activities, Birthday Lunches, Walk to School and Safety Week, Reflections, Teacher Appreciation and countless hours spent volunteering in the school.  Our students enjoy these activities and events due to the efforts of the PTA.  Please make sure you stop by the PTA tables at Open House and Back to School nights and sign up for the PTA and see if there are some areas you can help out the PTA and our school by volunteering your time.

 

School Community Council

Elections are currently being accepted if you are interested in serving on the School Community Council until August 25th.  Forms can be found on our school website: http://sierrabonita.nebo.edu/

 Elections will be held from August 28th-September 1st

 

Pick-Up Zone & Parking

We appreciate the efforts of all parents and staff members in providing for the safety of students in our drop-off and pick up zones. Please help us to ensure that all students are accompanied by an adult when crossing through the pick-up zone.  Also, thank you for reserving our handicapped parking spaces for those who have need for these parking stalls. We remind you to please park in a parking stall if you need to leave your vehicles to come inside the school.  This allows the flow of the drop-off and pick-up areas to be maintained and keeps vehicles moving forward and not backing up!  We have great appreciation for everyone’s efforts to increase safety in our parking lots and drop off and pick-up zones before and after school.  Please see our map for areas for drop of and pick-up on our website under information tab and in the School Information Handbook. 

Note: By law, bus zones cannot be used as drop off and pick up zones even if there are no buses present!

 

School Checkout Procedures

Please follow the following procedures when you need to check a student out from school before the end-of-school bell rings.  First, share with an office secretary that an early checkout is necessary, second, fill out information and sign name on the checkout sheet located in the office area, and third, wait in the office area until your student arrives in the office. Thank you.

 

Students Walking, Riding Bicycles/Scooters & Crosswalks

We have many students who are walking and riding bicycles/scooters to school each day. We have provided training for students to use sidewalks and to follow the instructions of adult supervisors and our crossing guards. We have instructed students to use the crosswalk in front of the school when crossing 1800 East. Faculty members will serve as crossing guards at this crosswalk. We ask that all parents please instruct their children on these and other safety measures to better ensure that students safely make their way to and from school each day.

 

Spirit Day

We have school spirit at Sierra Bonita, and have designated each Friday as our School Spirit Day. We have nice school shirts and encourage children to wear their school shirts (this year’s and past years’ shirts) or school colors (blue and maroon) on Fridays.  We have a lot to be proud of at Sierra Bonita and want to do all we can to build school pride.

This is a reminder for those who haven’t taken advantage of our online registration yet. If you are unable to register online by August 1st, we will have a walk-in registration day on August 1st from 8am-4pm at the school. It is HIGHLY recommended to complete online registration to avoid the long lines on registration day (August 1st).

To register, please click on this link and follow all the steps:  http://sierrabonita.nebo.edu/registration

If you have already attended Sierra Bonita Elementary last year, you would choose the option "Returning Student". It will then ask you what your child's student ID number is. If you have forgotten your students ID number, please call the school at 801-798-4480 M-Thurs. 8-1pm. OR ask your child, their ID# is also their lunch number. You are also welcome to reply to this email and we'd be happy to help.

Registration is the process of providing or verifying your student's information, and signing any documents required by the district or by legislation; this can be done online to save time. Additional documentation is also required for first-time students or if any of these additional documents have changed for a returning student; these additional documents must be delivered in person.

Your student will only be Enrolled into classes after the school verifies the completion of the Registration process and that all required documentation has been provided.

NOTE:  Kindergarten students did pre-register in March; however, they still need to complete online registration (to verify information and sign required documents) in order to complete the registration process.

Macey’s is excited to serve our community and local schools with the continuation of the School Cents program. They are happy to be a part of the education experience of today’s children and are proud to offer the School Cents program as a way for schools to obtain additional education funds. 

The School Cents program will continue to run through the Macey’s Perks® program, allowing them to electronically track the credit each school earns. Schools will earn 1% back on eligible purchases from July 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018. Please note that gift cards, tobacco and alcohol purchases, pharmacy expenses and sales tax will not count toward our school’s earnings. Final numbers will be calculated on April 1, 2018 and a check will be issued shortly thereafter. Participating schools are eligible to earn up to $10,000 per school year. 

The success of the School Cents program depends on our school’s supporters. Please shop at Macey’s and link your Macey’s Perks account to our school.  All you will need to do is link your account this year, even if you have linked it in the past. For directions on how to link an account, visit

 http://maceys.com/posts/support-your-childs-school. 

If you don’t have a Macey’s Perks account you can easily sign up by visiting any Macey’s location.
