THE YETI YELL
Feb. 20, 2023
Good evening Yeti Families,
We would like to send a great big thank you to the PTA for support with our Valentine’s parties and the awesome Beach Day on Friday. The PTA continue to go above and beyond to provide memorable experiences for the students.
Glacier Hills would like to invite Grandparent’s to join us for lunch during parent teacher conference week. If a student doesn’t have a grandparent that can attend, they can invite an important adult in their life. The Grandparent’s lunch will be held on both March 1st and 2nd.
Grandparents are invited to bring their own lunch (NO school lunch provided for visiting adults). They may bring a lunch for their student as well if they would like. Grandparents and students will eat in the gym anytime between 11:00 and 1:00. Please come to the school lobby NO Earlier than 11:00 to check in, and a member of the student council will bring your student to meet you. Below are the recommended days by last name.
Please do not hesitate to come on the other day if that best suits your schedule.
Wednesday, 3/1- last names A-J
Thursday, 3/2 last names K-Z
Grade level lunches –
K 11:00 1st – 11:20, 2nd – 11:40, 3rd – 12:00. 4th- 12:20, 5th – 12:40
If grandparents have more than one grandchild, they can attend at one of the student’s lunches and we will have the other student(s) join.
*Tip for Grandparents- Know your student’s teacher and grade before you arrive at the school to speed up the process of being united with them for lunch.
*Due to capacity issues, please limit 2 adults to each student.
Grandparents are invited to visit the book fair with their grandchildren after lunch. It will be held on the stage next to the gym.
Parent Teacher Conferences are on March 1st and 2nd. Please make sure you login to Skyward and schedule your Parent Teacher Conference. The online scheduler closes at 5:00 PM this Thursday, Feb. 23rd.
Remote-Learning Day – Monday March 6th, 2023
Monday, March 6 will be a Remote-Learning Day for all Canyons District students. The day follows a Friday, March 3 no-school day after the week of scheduled Parent-Teacher Conferences for most schools. While no new instruction will be provided online on that day, students will be provided remote-learning activities and teachers will be available to meet with students virtually between 10 a.m. and noon. Glacier Hills teachers will be sending home packets on Thursday, March 2nd.
Digital Citizenship Tip of the Month
Hold a Device Free Dinner – Try planning a device-free dinner! Taking a break from devices is proven to have positive benefits for kids, from better nutrition and focus at home to fewer problems at school. Learn more about the benefits of device-free dinners at commonsensemedia.org/device-free-dinner.
It’s almost Book Fair Time! This time all students will be given $5 Scholastic Cash to use at the book fair. All you have to do is give your student’s name to the cashier when checking out!
We need volunteers to help with our Book Fair Preview. Each class has 20 minutes to preview all the books at the fair. Students will be allowed to use their $5 credit at this time to get a book $5 or less. This is what we need help with. It is Monday and Tuesday, February 27-28. Sign up here to help.
If students don’t pick out a $5 book at the preview, they can come back another time with their parents/grandparents to use their $5 Scholastic Cash for a book or other merchandise.
Thank you to all the parent volunteers that helped with our Beach Day last Friday! Everyone had a lot of fun! We’re feeling those warm weather vibes!
