Miss Fielding Monday Minute – January 29, 2024

Dear Families,
As a school community we are working on improving attendance.  Consistent attendance is so important for students to be able to progress in their learning.  If students establish good attendance in elementary school, it makes a huge difference as they move to middle and high school and impacts graduation.  We are implementing a random points giveaway for students who are in school on a given day.  Today, students were given 10 PBIS points just for being here at school.   Throughout the next few months, we’ll pick random days to give points to students who are here at school.  Thanks for supporting your child in coming to school!


Lacrosse Clinic

Come to a free lacrosse clinic with the Alta High School boys’ lacrosse team.  It will be this Friday, February 2nd after school in the gym at Altara Elementary from 1:30 to 2:30.  All grades are invited.  Free Pizza will be provided.  Please RSVP by Thursday at 9pm.  Contact Tracie for questions and RSVP 801-419-5152.  All equipment for the clinic will be provided.  This event is sponsored by Alta Youth boys’ lacrosse program.  Registration for youth lacrosse ends February 13th.  Information will be available at the clinic.



Join us in our mission to lower food waste in Canyons School District. Did you know students are free to make choices about the food they consume for school breakfast and lunch? Students don’t have to take all the food items offered, and by consuming what they take, they help our cafeterias better plan, order for, and prepare meals so we end up with less waste. In this video, we delve into the importance of making informed choices during school lunch. Learn about the five required food groups, discover how to create a balanced meal, and take a quick quiz to test your knowledge. Let’s work together to ensure nutritious meals for all students while minimizing food waste.
