Load up your water soaking devices and drive by during your grade levels assigned time to cool off your teachers, school staff, and principal.

Thanks to everyone for making the best of a challenging situation! I know our teachers have worked hard to make our “at-home” learning work as well as possible for each of you. I know that parents have been supportive and worked extremely hard as well. And I want to especially give a shout out to our students!!! Way to go! I’m so proud of each of you for doing your best to make this work! I can’t wait for things to get back to our new normal. I’ve been amazed by some of the awesome things you’ve accomplished that teachers have shared with me. Thank you for giving your best effort. We’ve got a couple of weeks left … let’s finish strong. My constant plea will be to read each day, even during the summer!!

Keep smiling, keep working hard, you are amazing!

February 2020!

Wildcat Families!

Hang on tight, we’re cruising through 2020! January has come and gone. Here at Crimson View we had some pretty amazing events sponsored by our PTO. We started off the year with SPIRIT week, which was amazing! It was so much fun having our DSU visitors pump us up and watching the mascot games between Wifi and Brooks. We also had our Art Contest – which featured lots of amazing work created by our students. The 100th day of school has come and gone. I hope that you and your student are loving their experience here at Crimson View.

We have two major reading events happening now!

  1. PTO Battle of the Books – Last week an email was sent out with loads of information, many parents found that email in their SPAM folder … sorry about that. Check the school website for the most current information on Battle of the Books! PTO is looking for volunteers to help with the battle – CLICK HERE for the Signup Genius link! 
  2. Kite Festival – the 21st Annual Dixie Power Kite Festival is coming up on April 18. Students should be reading for 20 minutes each night and logging their minutes on their calendar. This event is so much fun and our students can earn a kite, book, or $10 voucher at the festival! 

Thanks for your continued support. Crimson View is an amazing school for our students. This is in large part due to the wonderful students, teachers and families that all work together! Let’s continue to make it great!

During the ten-week program, girls develop essential skills to help them navigate their world and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The after-school program is more than a running program, the curriculum includes lessons that specifically target helping girls increase their self-confidence, develop healthy relationships and feel good about themselves. Girls learn specific skills and strategies such as how to manage emotions, help others, make intentional decisions, and resolve conflicts that they then use at home, school, and with friends. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event held on Saturday, May 16, 2020.

January 2020!

Wildcat Families!

It is hard for me to believe that we’ve cruised through half of the school year already. It has been fabulous so far! Here at school, January is a time to really buckle down and focus on instruction and academics without the distractions that the previous months have had. Additionally, we see some amazing growth in our students as well as they really begin to take off academically. There are two things I want to share that can make a big difference to your student(s):

  1. Attendance (On Time ALL Day) – Our teachers and students hit the ground running each day. Tardies can quickly add up to substantial missed instructional time. Checking students out early is also disruptive to student learning. Establish a morning routine that includes having your student arrive at school on time and ready to learn. This is the best possible start to their school day. Additionally, try to avoid checking your student(s) out early from school and if you have to, do it as little as possible. Having your student arrive on time and staying all day is the very best for them and their learning!
  2. Lexia – at Crimson View our students use the Lexia Core 5 Reading program as an enhancement to their reading instruction. Each student is able to work on specific skills that they need to work and improve on. Lexia is much more than just a reading app or a computer program to keep your child busy. Students who consistently meet the weekly minute requirements will show substantial reading gains over time. Reading 20 minutes each day with your child is critical step number 1. Encouraging your student to work daily on Lexia for 20 minutes is a great next step to developing a good reader.

I’m looking forward to a strong surge in academics over the next couple of months! Let’s hit the ground running in 2020! See you Monday Wildcats!

Pokemon

Wildcat Families,

The current super fad at Crimson View is Pokemon Cards. Through the years I’ve seen many fads come and go through the various schools that I have worked at. I typically don’t attempt to control or dictate what students become excited about. However, when it comes to toys at school, my recommendation will always be that personal toys should stay at home. This is the only way for the toy to not become lost, broken, or stolen at school. I enjoy seeing students excited and motivated. I am also very impressed by the knowledge that some of our students have regarding Pokemon. I think that all of us can learn a thing or two about the role of motivation in learning from things like Pokemon.

The Good: Students are happy and excited. Many students are making connections and new friends. Students are motivated to learn and grow their knowledge about a new topic.

The Bad: A few students have Pokemon brain and are distracted from focusing in their classrooms. We’ve also had a few students skipping lunch in order to get outside more quickly. Classroom teachers have mentioned the challenge of managing the Pokemon rage currently sweeping our school.

The Ugly: Students have had Pokemon cards stolen. Some students are taking advantage of other students who don’t have as much Pokemon knowledge when making trades. We’ve had punches thrown regarding Pokemon deals gone bad.

If your child is involved in the Pokemon super fad sweeping our school please visit with them about their experience. Encourage them to always be fair with others. Encourage them to only get them out at appropriate times. Encourage them to keep them home if having them lost or stolen at school is a concern. Make sure that you visit about conflict resolution and how to handle things appropriately. 

Thanks for your support … I’m going out on a limb and making a prediction on the next super fad at Crimson … marbles or maybe pogs!

Students may sell additional books and should complete the order form on the envelope that will come home on Monday. We will have the books available from Monday, November 4 thru Friday, November 15. Please call the office (435-634-7000) if you have additional questions regarding our Dixie Direct Book fundraiser.

Halloween Info

Crimson View Wildcats & Families,

Quick reminder that next Monday, October 28 will be an Early Release PLC day. We will follow our Friday schedule and dismiss at 1:15pm. This allows our teachers to participate in professional learning in order to be better prepared as they work with your amazing students.

Halloween is coming right up. I also wanted to give you a quick run down of what will be happening here at Crimson View:

  • Halloween Costume Parade: 
    • 9:15 Start Time
    • The parade will follow the regular route (paved track around our big field)
    •  Classroom parties are scheduled by each class individually
  • Costume Guidelines:
    • Keep the school costume as simple as possible ~ NO masks, NO weapons, NO extreme gore, NO immodest costumes (WCSD Policy 2200)
    • Students should be able to change into the costume with minimal help (practice at home)
    • Students should be able to use the bathroom without any help

I’m continually amazed at the great things happening at our school. If you didn’t see our recent school choir concert you are missing out. We’ve got a group of teachers attending a National Science Teachers Association conference in SLC, a group of them even presented on the great and amazing things happening here at Crimson View Elementary with regards to STEM education. By attending the conference I anticipate that they will bring back ideas and best practices that we can add to what we are already doing to grow and improve. Thanks for your continued support. I can speak for our entire faculty, we love working with your children!

Please contact me directly with any feedback, questions, or concerns!
