improve our school
 
To help improve our schools, Provo City School District is asking for input about parent, student and employee experiences in each of the district’s schools. Parents can either fill out the student survey with their child in mind or help the student complete it on their own. If you have multiple students in one school, please complete a separate survey for each student. While the surveys are voluntary and anonymous, your participation is greatly appreciated.
Follow this link to a short survey -

Each year, National Blue Ribbon Schools shine under a national spotlight for all the right reasons. The award acknowledges and validates the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in striving for—and attaining—exemplary achievement. For many, attaining the National Blue Ribbon School award is the realization of a long-held dream.

National Blue Ribbon Schools serve as models for other schools throughout the nation, and school personnel are often sought out as mentors.

Help your kids learn to be safe online

Visit the following links with your children to learn more about being safe

on the internet and with social media.

We will be providing a NetSmartz parent presentation available for parents on Thursday, January 28, (it will be offered at two different times to accommodate parent schedules) from 3-3:45 pm and 7:30- 8:15 pm.  Mrs. Cunningham and Mrs. Slaymaker will also be doing a Wasatch data presentation at 2 - 2:30 pm and 6 - 6:30 pm.  Both will be held in the music room.

To ensure safety online, it is recommended you put either K9 or Norton Online Family on your computers, and also use OpenDNS on your router. These three internet protection sites are excellent and they are all FREE If you need more information about how each of these tools work and which one would be best for your family, please go through the slides for the Internet Safety presentation. They cover each of these tools in great detail and explain what each tool can do and how it can be used.   This combination seems to work best in keeping the family safe. However, no internet filter is a substitute for taking time to talk to your children regularly and for teaching them how to protect themselves on the internet.

Click HERE to see the results of the 2015 PSD Running the Race.  Several students from Wasatch were winners.  Good job!

This story will definitely make you happy ...

"Research had shown that riding a bike is good for brain development and learning."  The Wasatch Staff recently acquired a bicycle donated by Natalie Hepworth to give to a deserving 6th grade student who had grown out of her current bike.  Mr. Thompson and Andrew Wright fixed up the bike and thoroughly cleaned it to a sparkling pink like-new condition.  The bike was given to a delighted student who couldn't wait to ride it home.  Thank you Mrs. Hepworth for your kindness and generosity.  The story gets even better ... Kaylee now has decided to donate her small bike to a younger Wasatch student so he or she can ride to school as well.

PAYING IT FORWARD is such an amazing thing!!!

Wasatch 6th graders were at the Pleasant Grove Christa McAuliffe Space Center when it was celebrating their 25 year anniversary.

The pictures are dark because ... well, they are in space.

Wasatch 2014 SAGE Tests

Percent Proficient

2013-14 SAGE Summative average proficiencies shown below reflect a new baseline for Utah's end of level testing. The new SAGE test is different than the previous Criteria Referenced Tests (CRT), and more challenging, and therefore cannot be compared to CRT results from previous years. SAGE tests are adaptive, with questions based on new Utah Core standards, and contain technology-based questions versus all multiple choice.
