Dear Parents,

The 2017-18 school year is just around the corner, we hope that you have had an enjoyable summer. We are looking forward to a great year at Uintah Elementary!  Our teachers and staff have been busy preparing for the return of our students. We are thrilled to welcome them back!  Please join us at our upcoming "Back to School Night" on Monday August 21st from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.   We will begin the event with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for our new “All Abilities Playground” which was sponsored by WSD Foundation.  This ceremony will begin at 5:00pm, located on the playground on the north side of the school.  There will also be a number of food trucks on the playground, consider treating your family to a meal or a snack during this evening.  A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the school.

--Registration throughout the district is being conducted on-line through the portal @ wsd.net.  School and district information will be sent throughout the year via the portal, make sure current contact information is updated.  Bring any completed forms to turn into the teacher on Back to School Night.

--During this time you may also sign up for a short one-on-one conference with your student’s teacher held later in the week.

-- This night will be a great opportunity for students to meet their new teacher, for parents to pay for school lunch, join the PTA, purchase school shirts and sign up for support in the classroom.

I look forward to a fantastic year and encourage you as parents to communicate often with the school and staff if questions or needs arise.  A parent's sustained interest in their child's academic and social experiences at school can be great motivation for learning.  Let your child see and feel that we are working together in every way to make this a terrific school year.   

See you at our Back to School Night!
