Common Core State Standards
Curious about the Utah Common Core Standards and the new state assessment, SAGE, that's being implemented this year? Do you want to know how those are impacting teaching and learning for your children? Then save the date -- Tuesday, January 14th, 8:30-9:15 am in the Trailside Elementary gym for an overview of these topics.
As we enter into the holiday season the Park City School Board would like to give thanks to all the people that make our school district a special place.
We are thankful for the wonderful students we have in this district. They are our future leaders and we are certain that they will embrace the challenges before them and make us all proud. They are kind, compassionate, intelligent and funny and we are thankful to call them our own.
We are thankful for the tremendous teachers that are the backbone of our district. The passion and dedication shown by these individuals on a daily basis is amazing. We thank them for all the time and effort that they give in order to make sure that our children have the best possible chance to succeed.
We are thankful for the great administrators who help to guide and lead the district. This group of individuals is passionate and determined to make the district a safe, nurturing and challenging environment, which allows our children to reach their full potential.
We are thankful for all the amazing support staff in the district. Every day these individuals help to make sure that our students are receiving all the support required to succeed. We are thankful for the bus drivers, custodians, food staff, paraprofessionals, aides and secretaries that make up our team.
We are thankful for the staff and volunteer board of the Park City Education Foundation. The amount of work put in by this organization to ensure that our students receive the best possible experience is monumental. To organize the Red Apple Gala, Parent Appeal and Running with Ed takes quite an effort. The fact that the organization has a full-time staff of 2.5 individuals is amazing.
We are thankful for all the parents that make up our PTO’s, PTA’s and Community Councils. These are volunteer organizations that work tirelessly to improve the quality of our district. Whether it is organizing Fall Festivals, Book Fairs, Teacher Meals or working on School Improvement Plans the work done is breathtaking in scope.
Lastly, we want to thank all the wonderful individuals and organizations in town that work with us to help us achieve our goals. We have so many partners that it would be impossible to list all of them. They bring enrichment and opportunities to our students unheard of in other communities. We live in an amazing place and are humbled by the kindness and generosity that we witness on a daily basis.
So thank you to everyone for allowing us to serve the district and our students. We truly appreciate all the support we receive throughout the year. We want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
