HATS OFF FOR WILLIAM WAINWRIGHT
Thank you for all your support
Congratulations to Mrs. Ord who won the Provo School District Outstanding Educator Award - Deniece Ord has been teaching at Wasatch Elementary school for 25 years, including the last 24 years in first grade, and she was recognized in an Evening of Excellence on Friday, May 6.
Deniece has always shown her students how much she cares for them. She has spent many years nurturing students by building up their confidence. She has a way of telling a student that they can accomplish anything that they put their mind to. She uses positive songs and poems as part of her teaching curriculum to help build students self-esteem. Her students know that at the end of the day she truly loves and cares for them.
Deniece goes the extra mile to help struggling students. She gives up her time before school, after school, during lunch and during specialties to tutor and work with students. She is very positive with the students and constantly celebrating their achievements. She has students from previous years who come to see her each morning. They can’t seem to start their day without getting a hug and positive words from Mrs. Ord.
He always makes sure the students understand their homework.
Because he is the BEST! Seriously, in our family Mr. Scribner is a hero. He is so gifted in his ability to connect with the kids, to make them feel safe and confident, to get them excited about learning, to help them learn for the invaluable skill of being able to laugh at yourself and not take yourself or life too seriously.
Because he makes all of the subjects we do challenging, but also very entertaining. He also has a good sense of humor and creates fun activities for us.
Mr. Scribner is so funny, amazing and great at teaching. He makes our last year at Wasatch the best!
He is a caring, funny and energetic teacher. He cares about students like his own family. He makes 6th grade amazing!

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.

"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!!!

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.
