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.

Wasatch Elementary, along with the Provo City School District Board of Education recognizes that electronic and interfering devices are both distracting and disruptive to the learning environment, and have the potential to be used to intimidate and/or threaten others. Therefore, such devices are not to be seen or heard in class unless the teacher's activity specifically requires their use.
If a cell phone or electronic device is brought to school, it is to be turned on vibrate or off and remain in the student's backpack during the school day (including lunch and recess). If this policy is violated, school administration will take appropriate disciplinary action.
Interfering devices - This is any device that interferes with the educational process. This could include, but is not limited to, cameras, cell phones, camera telephones, gameboys, tablets, ipods, lasers, laser pens or pointers, or other electronic equipment or disruptive objects.
Congratulations!!! Wasatch is lucky to have you!

"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.
