LEAD-A-THON

Our School Community Council (SCC) hopes to continue our Leader in Me program to help develop leadership and anti-bullying skills in our Butterfield Canyon Elementary students. In order to provide this opportunity for our students, the SCC has voted to raise funds by holding a LEAD-A-THON in partnership with Leader.org.  The LEAD-A-THON will run from Monday, February 12th-Friday, March 2nd.

Donations can be made through cash/check donations turned into the school or can be made online through our donation page: www.leader.org/bce.

Students can also go to this school donation page to activate (set-up) their own personal donation page (with the help of a parent/guardian). Parents/guardians can also do this using their smartphones by texting leadathon663 to 71777.

Click “JOIN THIS TEAM” and enter the student name and an email address. Click SET UP MY PAGE. Done.

Our school goal is to raise: $10,000

Current Total: $1,115

Thank you in advance for your support!

We are interested in getting feedback from our community about how we are doing as a school. Please use the link below to complete our Stakeholder Survey provided by the Utah Education Policy Center at the University of Utah.  We appreciate your honest and fair feedback.  Thank you!

Parent Survey

We want your input so we have provided a little incentive to your students for printing & returning the bottom portion of this paper (Survey Drawing Form) to the office after you have taken the survey. If you have multiple students at the school, please sign a different survey verification form for each child. After they select their “thank you” prize in the office, this slip will be put into a drawing for a Kneader’s gift basket and a few $25 vouchers to the upcoming book fair. To be considered for the drawing, this slip needs to be turned into the office by Thursday, March 8th.

Congratulations Mrs. Joos!!!

Mrs. Joos recently received the Crystal Apple Award presented by Mario Pia from Horace Mann.  Here is why she was nominated:

“Mrs. Joos listens to ideas from her fellow educators and is always ready to work together to find a better way to help students learn. Sometimes during meetings, we can fall into the trap of going through certain routine motions and we don’t step back and ask the tough questions about whether our actions are truly going to improve the student’s learning. Mrs. Joos helps teacher groups do this by listening to what we are saying- and the direction we are heading – and then she helps us ask how this direction
 will specifically impact students learning? How do we know it will help students who don’t get it? Then she tries to think of examples from her class of how our current approach has worked or not worked so we have something concrete to discuss. Mrs. Joos helps her fellow educators by making sure our time and effort actually achieve an improvement.  Mrs. Joos is a wonderful mentor who goes out of her way to help others. She will drop what she is doing to assist in any way she can. She loves to collaborate and share her ideas/supplies to help better the learning environment for all students in every classroom. She cares deeply about each and every student and their success.”

 Mario Pia (Horace Mann), Mrs. Joos, Ms. Anderson (JEA Rep) & Candie Checketts (Assistant Principal)
