Flex Friday, Surveys, School Store

Believe it or not, we are edging up on Thanksgiving Break already with only a week and a half to go. Thank you again to all of our performing arts students, teachers and parents for the outstanding Veterans Day assembly and evening performances. It was a new format, but one that we plan to keep going forward. Be sure to check out our social media pages for a glimpse of the performance.

In this Skylert, you’ll find:

  • Flex Friday (This Week)
  • School Merchandise
  • Parent & Student Stakeholder Surveys
  • PTSA November Newsletter
  • Volunteers for Job Interviews in January
  • MESA Activities

Flex Friday This Week

This coming Friday, November 19th, will be our second Flex Friday as a district. Each school will be handling it slightly differently, but all within the structure outlined here.

For all Elk Ridge students, they should expect roughly 3 hours total of engagement in schoolwork. This will vary from class to class, but students will be able to complete this work from home. If students have questions about work, they should contact their teacher.

In addition, any student needing extra support will be able to attend in-person between 10 am and 12:15 pm, as long as they have arranged with their teacher beforehand to do so. We love to have you – we just need to know you’re coming. Busing will be provided following the normal Friday bus schedule. Lunch will be served from 12:15 – 1:15 pm, and students who are bused will work in either the cafeteria or the media center until buses come at 2:30 pm.

School Store

Want to show that Wapiti pride? If you want Elk Ridge merchandise, you can visit this link any time from now until December 6th. The store is run by Marchant Design and Elk Ridge does not benefit from your purchase in any way.

Parent and Student Stakeholder Surveys

All parents should have received a survey at the email address listed in Skyward. Please know we take the results of the survey very seriously in our ongoing efforts to improve the quality of every aspect of our school from communication to instruction.

The survey can be taken once for each teacher your student has, so thank you in advance for taking the time to give us feedback and potentially taking the survey seven times so that all teachers get that feedback. Students will also get the chance this Wednesday to take the survey during Wally Time.

PTSA November Newsletter

Our wonderful PTSA puts out a regular newsletter, which can be found here. Check it out for upcoming events, highlights from past events, and more!

8th Grade PCCR’s, Job Shadow, Brandon Mull

We hope the sugar has mostly left the system after a great Halloween! We had a great time with the Goblin Chase and Halloween Carnival, and a huge thanks goes out to our wonderful PTSA for all of their hard work and help managing those events. The new dress code is also now in full swing, and we appreciate how many students have made the shift without causing a disruption to the business of school. That is definitely the intent of the change, and it’s been great so far!

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS AND GUARDIANS OF 8TH GRADE STUDENTS!

8th Grade PCCR Appointments are now available on Skyward – Please sign up ASAP!

We highly encourage all parents/guardians of 8th grade students to meet with their assigned school counselor for a PCCR meeting. Plan for College and Career Readiness (PCCR) appointments are available by logging into the parent’s Skyward account and clicking on the “Conferences” button. (The Skyward conference scheduler will be open until Nov 12th to make appointments.)  PCCR appointments are available Nov 1 – Nov 23 during school hours. Evening hours are available on Wed, Nov 17 and Thurs, Nov 18 (4:00-6:00 pm). If none of the available times work for you, you may email your counselor to schedule a different time. Your 8th grade PCCR meeting will briefly discuss your student’s high school graduation requirements and future college and career interests. 

8th Grade Job Shadow – Applications are due Tuesday, Nov 2nd.  However, we will still accept the applications through the end of this week.

8th grade students need to be working on their job shadow so that they can submit their application to their history teacher by Tuesday, November 2nd. If you miss this deadline, we still encourage you to complete the Job Shadow application as we will still accept it through the end of this week. They may reference the career exploration activity they did in their science class to get ideas. As an alternative activity, 8th graders may also attend one of the following programs at the JATC: Biotechnology, Engineering, Veterinary Science, Garden & Greenhouse,  Horticulture & Landscape Architecture, Computer  Programming, Web Development, Welding, Nail Technology, Hair Design & Barbering, Fire Science, EMT, and Aviation Science.

Brandon Mull Visit – November 3rd

New York Times Bestselling Author Brandon Mull will be visiting Elk Ridge on Wednesday, and we have been selling tickets with Wally Coins all week last week. The goal of selling tickets was primarily to ensure that students who really wanted to hear him speak were able to do so. Today, we gave away tickets for free in all three lunches to any students still wanting to attend. We have a few left, so if your student doesn’t have a ticket and wants to attend, have them find an administrator to get one. The assembly will be during 2nd period. Again, we are grateful to Brandon Mull and his team for making this possible at no cost to the school!

9th Grade Job Interviews – Thursday, January 13th

Adult volunteers are still needed to help with our 9th grade Job Interview experience. We need 15 volunteers from 7:50am -11:15am , and 15 volunteers from 11:00am-3:00pm. The PTSA will provide lunch for both sessions. Volunteers will be doing short mock job interviews for our 9th grade students. The interview questions will be emailed to volunteers. For more information, please contact the counseling center. If you can help with this fun activity, please fill out this form.

Wally Time – Improving School Culture

Our last Wally Time lesson was on what adults can do to make students feel welcome. This time around, the focus is on what students can do to improve school culture. Check out the slides here, and we look forward to seeing what the students come up with!

Halloween Guidelines, 8th Grade PCCR Appointments, Dress Code Update

Halloween Costume Guidelines

In a sentence, your costume needs to be such that 1) we can easily tell who you are, and 2) we can still have you in class and get productive things done. 

Everything from there falls under those two things. If you wear a mask that covers your entire face, we can’t tell who you are. If you put so much face paint on that we can’t tell who you are, no dice. If you’re in the bathroom adjusting your costume makeup when you shouldn’t be, it’s a problem. If you wear something so grotesque that people are disturbed by it, we’ll be chatting. If your inflatable horse legs make navigating the hallway impossible, we’ll have you deflate it. Hopefully that gives you the tone rather than a specific set of rules. If it causes a stir in a negative way, it won’t fly. Beyond that, we want you to have fun.

Obviously there are still absolutes. You can’t bring a weapon or fake weapon to school, you can’t make gang references or wear sexually suggestive clothing, and you can’t do anything that promotes, represents, or advocates for racism or illegal activity.

Halloween costumes are one of the most enjoyable parts of the holiday and we love seeing your creativity. Help us use common sense and it can be something we continue to look forward to each year! 

Halloween Events

We hold three main things on School Halloween (October 29th):

  • Goblin Chase – a 1 mile race to catch two of our fastest students. Parent permission is required to participate, and forms can be found in the main office.
  • Halloween Carnival – a one-hour celebration at the end of the day with games, food, music and fun. This will take place during 6th and 7th hour.
  • Costume Contest – we’ll pull out and photograph the best costumes and hold a vote at the end of the day.

Dress Code

Visit this page for recent changes to the school board policy regarding dress code. The main takeaway is that we are looking more at the effect of what you wear than the thing itself. There are still some absolutes (bare back or abdomen, gang or drug references, etc.), but other things (hats being the most requested) are allowed as long as it doesn’t cause a disruption and we can still tell who you are.

National Junior Honor Society Induction

NJHS Induction Ceremony is tonight. Students should be in the auditorium BY 5:40 pm.

Calling All Careers!

Our 7th grade CCA students want to know what it’s like to do what you do!  We are looking for a variety of presenters to help students learn about the world of work.  We love to hear from parents, aunts, uncles, and family friends that have interesting careers. Use this form if you can help us out!

8th Grade PCCR Appointments 

We encourage all parents/guardians of 8th grade students to meet with their assigned school counselor for a PCCR meeting. Plan for College and Career Readiness (PCCR) appointments are available by logging into the parent’s Skyward account and clicking on the “Conferences” button. (The Skyward conference scheduler will be open until Nov 12th to make appointments.)  PCCR appointments are available Nov 1 – Nov 23 during school hours. Evening hours from 4:00-6:00 pm are available on Wed, Nov 17 and Thurs, Nov 18. If none of the available times work for you, you may email your counselor to schedule a different time. Your 8th grade PCCR meeting will briefly discuss your student’s high school graduation requirements and future college and career interests. 

8th Grade Job Shadow – Applications are due Tuesday, Nov 2nd

8th grade students need to be working on their job shadow so that they can turn in their application to their history teacher by Tuesday, November 2nd. They may reference the career exploration activity they did in their science class to get ideas. As an alternate activity, 8th graders may also attend one of the following programs at the JATC: Biotechnology, Engineering,  Veterinary Science, Garden & Greenhouse,  Horticulture & Landscape Architecture, Computer  Programming, Web Development, Welding, Nail Technology, Hair Design & Barbering, Fire Science, EMT, and Aviation Science.

MESA-STEM After-School Activity this Wed, Oct 27

We will be holding our October MESA-STEM after school activity on Wed, Oct. 27.  Each month we do a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) related activity. All Elk Ridge Students are invited and encouraged to attend.  Each month’s activity will begin immediately after school and will probably last about an hour (approx, 3:00 – 4:00 pm). Flyers are available in the counseling center.

PTSA Reflections Contest, Brandon Mull Visit

PTSA Reflections Submissions Due October 25th

The National PTA’s Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.

Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

The theme for the 2021-2022 program year is I Will Change the World By…. Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.

Submissions are due October 25th by midnight and are submitted online at utahpta.org/ref. Submissions at the school are not accepted.

If you have any questions, please contact Diana Baun at diana.baun@gmail.com.

Author Brandon Mull Visit on November 3rd

New York Times Bestselling Author Brandon Mull will be visiting Elk Ridge on November 3rd. Brandon’s work includes the world-famous Fablehaven and Dragonwatch series, the Candy Shop War, Beyonders, and the Five Kingdoms. He will be speaking about the value of reading, the joy of writing, and the importance of developing the imagination.

Because his schedule is limited, he will only be available for one assembly. In order to ensure that the students attending want to be there, we are using our school coins (Wally Coins) to purchase tickets to the event. The price will be low enough that any student who genuinely wants to attend should be able to do so. More on that as we determine how many students are interested. It’s an exciting opportunity, and a huge shoutout goes to Brandon and his team for making the opportunity available to the school free of charge.

Picture Retakes, Job Shadow, PCCR’s

Picture Retakes

If you would like a retake of your school picture, Bell Photography will be here on Wednesday, October 13th. You can check out this flyer for information on ordering. Because of the small number of students that typically participate in retakes, proofs will be virtual and not printed. If you would like a virtual proof, email cs@bellphoto.com with the subject, “Virtual Proof”. Bell Photo will email the proof directly to you once the picture has been taken.

8th Grade Job Shadow – Tuesday, November 9th, 2021

Students will receive their job shadow packet in their history class last week or this week. Also, a career inventory will be given on Thursday to prepare them for their job shadow and upcoming PCCR appointments. Please ask your 8th grader about these items. 

MESA-STEM Next activity – Wed, October 27, 2021

Our monthly  MESA-STEM activity for October will be on Wed, Oct. 27, 2021 right after school (3:00 – 4:00 pm).  All Elk Ridge Middle School students are invited and welcome to participate.  For more information see Mr. Bennett (Counselor) or Ms. Hardy (Teacher, Room #209).

Wally Time

We had a lesson planned for this Wednesday taking the work of making students feel welcome and expanding it to what students can do to change or influence the school culture. However, with it being the last week of the quarter, we had many requests from teachers and students to use that time to help students shore up their grades before the quarter officially ends on Friday. The planned lesson will take place next week instead.

8th Grade PCCR Appointments Coming Soon 

We encourage all parents/guardians of their 8th grade students to meet together with their assigned school counselor for a PCCR meeting. Plan for College and Career (PCCR) appointments will become available soon on Skyward this week. We encourage all parents/guardians of 8th grade students to sign up for a conference appointment with your student’s counselor.  PCCR appointments will be available for sign up Nov. 1 – Nov. 23 during school hours.  If evening hours are needed, we will have the evenings (4:00 pm – 6:00 pm) of Nov, 17 and Nov. 18 available. If you are needing a PCCR appointment scheduled before sign ups become available, please send an email to your student’s assigned counselor with the specific date and time needed.  

Your 8th grade PCCR meeting will briefly discuss your student’s high school graduation requirements. The majority of the PCCR will be used to discuss your student’s future college and career interests.  The PCCR is also a good opportunity for parents and students to discuss any questions or concerns that they might have regarding the student’s college and career interests and other educational endeavors.

Back-to-School Night & More

Back-to-School Night & Videos

We will be holding the in-person half of Back-to-School Night from 6 – 7:30 pm at the school. We will have a brief introduction, allow the PTSA to conduct some business, and then give you the rest of the time to visit teachers, work on locker combinations, etc. Many of you did this last Friday unofficially, and we will hold next year’s night before school starts to capitalize on such high interest.

We also have brief videos from teachers explaining things you might want to know as parents for your child’s classes. Those videos can be found here. They will be available at any time for the next few weeks – like when your kids come home and tell you about their favorite teacher and you want to know who they are talking about.

Immunizations at Back-to-School Night

The required 7th grade immunizations (not COVID-19 vaccinations or flu shots) will be offered through Certified Nursing Services during Back-to-School Night. They will arrive before Back-to-School Night begins if you’d like to come a bit early.

Chromebooks & Registration

We can’t give your student a Chromebook until you have completed registration, as it contains an acceptable use agreement for electronic devices in the district. 

More Information Always Online

We always post every Skylert and as much important information as possible on the school website (elkridgemiddle.org). Please check out our last Skylert/post regarding much of the start-of-school information we get asked about most frequently.

We also do our level best to avoid overloading your inbox/phone/texts with information so that when we do send it out, it’s something you actually read. Plan on a message from us once a week (usually Monday evening), and always check the website if you’re wondering if you’ve missed something.

Lego Robotics

Like Legos? Like Robots? Join Lego Robotics at Elk Ridge Middle School. It meets after school Tuesday and Thursday from 3:05-4:00. We build and program Lego robots. We also solve engineering problems. To join: https://forms.gle/8bM5icRJquV54sCc9

Volunteers, AP Tests, Free & Reduced Lunch Applications

General Reminders

There’s been a lot of exciting news lately regarding updated COVID guidance in the nation and state, but please note that guidance for schools has remained the same. Cases are down at Elk Ridge, and we attribute that directly to how well our students are doing overall. 

Please help us to remind students that masks at school still need to be worn indoors at all times, and outdoors when closer than 6 feet from others. We want to keep things as light as possible in tone, and having support from home makes all the difference. A lot of masks are starting to creep down under the nose, and that’s effectively not wearing a mask. We have plenty of new masks in the main office if they need something that stays up better.

Calling For Volunteers

We have a number of upcoming opportunities for parents and members of our community to participate in career-building activities. This ranges from mock job interviews to bringing your job to our students. If you have any interest in participating in one of these activities, let us know using this link. We’ve had tremendous participation from our community in the past, and it’s a great chance to get involved in something meaningful to our students.

AP Tests Coming Soon

Dates are being finalized and communicated to the classes directly, but please remember that if your student is in an AP class, they should plan on taking the test this May. Both AP Geography and AP Spanish tests will likely fall on a Friday, and it’s important to plan on being at school those days.

Memory Book Price Increases March 15th

If you would like to purchase a memory book, please do so before March 15th. After that date, the price will increase from $25 to $30. They can be purchased by going to Skyward Family Access, choosing Fee Management, Selecting Add a Fee, and the selecting Memory Book.

Free & Reduced Lunch Forms

The current USDA free lunch waiver allows all students to eat breakfast and lunch for free. When this waiver expires or funds run out, students will need a completed Free and Reduced Lunch form to continue to eat free or reduced lunch.

If you qualify or think you might qualify for free or reduced lunch, complete a new form at the school or on Skyward Family Access (Instructions Here) ASAP so there the transition back to regular lunch costs is as seamless as possible. If you have any questions, please contact our cafeteria manager (Holly Taylor) at 801-412-2823.

Parent Conference & Pre-Registration Reminder

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher conferences are this Wednesday from 4-8 pm and Thursday from 4-7:30 pm. You can sign up for an appointment time in Skyward Family Access. Drop-ins will be possible, but those with appointments will be given priority. Zoom links will be available on the school website and via email starting Wednesday. If you have a meeting with a teacher before then, they can send you the Zoom link directly.

Sign up early to get the times you want, and remember that if you don’t get the chance to meet with a teacher this week, Zoom, email and phone calls all work all year, so please don’t hesitate to reach out whenever you have questions or concerns.

Last Week to Pre-Register

Don’t forget that all pre-registrations (course selections) must be completed by February 14th. Visit our pre-registration page for information and the pre-registration form. We’ll take this information and use it to offer as many of the classes that you want as possible!

ALPS Orientation

There will be a virtual ALPS orientation meeting for all incoming ALPS students on February 23rd from 6-7 pm. The link to this meeting can be found at gandt.jordandistrict.org.

Memory Books

Memory Books ordered from now until March 15 are $25. Memory Books ordered after March 15 will be $30, and are only available as long as the limited supplies last. Memory books can be ordered in Skyward under the fees sections. If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Whitney in the main office. We have switched to a different vendor this year to hopefully ensure they are here in a timely manner.

Dress Code Reminder

Please take a moment to review what your student is wearing to school, especially now that things are warming up.

Skylert: End of 2nd Quarter, Pre-Registration

Welcome back from winter break! Everyone looked a bit sleepy today, which was hopefully due to all of the rest you got over the break. Please remember that the 2nd quarter ends next Friday, January 15th. Please ensure you have all requisite work turned in early so that you avoid any surprises.

Memory Books

Memory Books ordered from now until April 1, 2021 are $25. Memory Books ordered after April 1,2021 will be $30. Memory books can be ordered in Skyward under the fees sections. If you have questions please contact Mrs. Whitney in the main office. We have switched to a different vendor this year to hopefully ensure they are here in a timely manner.

Pre-Registration

It’s time to start planning for next school year, and pre-registration for classes will open on February 1st. We are moving to an online registration system this year, and you will have two weeks to make and adjust your requests. That process will also include class summaries, prerequisites, and everything else you’ll need to tell us what you want for next year, since a registration night in-person at the school won’t be an option. Once we have that, we’ll work to staff our school according to your requests. This makes it doubly important that you get us your preferences, as it’s much harder to accommodate once the schedule has been built and staffing decisions have been made. More information on registration will come in the Skylert and on our website as we get closer.

Permits

The initial permit window has now closed, and only permits submitted before January 1st will be entered into the lottery. From there, permits will be awarded according to the established waiting list. Unfortunately we do not anticipate having space for many, if any, permits this year.

COVID Updates

Case counts are set to zero per state guidelines after a 2-week break. Positive cases are still reported, and community spread appears to be relatively high based on the number of students and staff currently positive, even though none of them have been in the school while positive due to the break. In short, it’s been a long haul, but now is not the time to get complacent.

In better news, quarantines in school will now only occur for situations where one or both students was NOT wearing a mask. This means primarily only lunchroom exposures or situations where we know a student was not wearing a mask. Quarantines from non-masked exposure are for 7 days with a negative test administered on the 7th day, or 10 days without a test.

The governor also announced that districts can adopt a test-to-stay policy in order to avoid shifting to online learning, but such a policy must be adopted by a school board to go into effect. There has not been an opportunity since the announcement for the board to discuss such a policy, meaning we will still be held to the 15 active cases or 1% threshold for the time being for a shift to online learning.

Skylert: Swag, Retakes, Red Ribbon Week

School Masks & Shirts

With the Wapiti Store not an option for the foreseeable future, we’ve decided to use those resources to provide students with either an Elk Ridge mask or water bottle, and a shirt. For those students who are learning from home, either full-time or just while on quarantine, we’ll have an official pickup time this Friday, Oct 9th from 10 – 11 am just inside the front door. If you miss that window for some reason, just let us know in the main office.

It’s Red Ribbon Week!

Red Ribbon Week starts today, and our PTSA has a lot of excitement in store. To get in on the fun, follow this Instagram account. Red Ribbon week runs from 10/5 to 10/9. The theme is “We’ll get through this together.” Each day has a different activity:

  • Monday: Don’t go crazy on social media (Crazy Sock Day)
  • Tuesday: Together we can do hard things (Dress Like Twins Day)
  • Wednesday: Team kindness (Team Jersey Day)
  • Thursday: It’s a great day to be a Wapiti! (Wapiti Gear Day)

Take a picture dressed in each day’s theme and tag @elkridge_redribbon on Instagram to be entered to win cool prizes!

Picture Retakes (Including Virtual Students)

Retakes for student pictures will take place on October 7th from 8 – 9 am. For those coming from home, just stop by the main office upon arriving. The order form can be found here and in the main office. You can order them online using this Picture Day ID: EVTG2DGJR

District Virtual Change Requests due Oct. 6th

If you are hoping to move from virtual to in-person or from in-person to virtual, you must submit that request in Skyward by Oct. 6th. Instructions were emailed out, and can be found here

Space for such moves will be extremely limited, and will be based within the existing virtual learning staffing and framework established by the district.

Community Council Nominations and Vote

We will hold a vote next week via Skylert if needed. You can nominate people here, and get more information on the school community council here.

Managing Quarantine Expectations & Opting to Self-Quarantine

We make every effort to keep students caught up when they are out on quarantine, and good communication is at the heart of quarantine success. But it’s definitely not as good as being here or being in a class actually designed for virtual instruction. It is intended to be a short-term solution and not a replacement for in-person or online instruction. Our goal is to lessen how behind a student is when they return, and to include them in the in-person class as much as possible. That said, it’s the splint and not the cast, and your student is still enrolled in an in-person class. 

If you are opting to keep your student out for self-isolation longer than a normal quarantine, please keep in mind that quarantine is meant to be a short-term solution, and while we will do what we can to involve them, it’s designed to hold students over and not to replace the in-person class.

Chalk Art Festival

Our Chalk Art Festival will be happening on Friday, October 9th, and students can participate in person or from home. Applications for in-person and online participants can be found here. In-person participant applications were due to Mrs. Gonzales by October 1st. Contact her if you are still interested in participating in any form.

Quarantine Schoolwork Point of Contact

If you have been out on quarantine, you probably already know this, but Lisa Hogan is our point of contact for schoolwork help and questions when on quarantine. She can connect you with teachers, counselors and more, and will be keeping tabs on you until you can come back.

Quarantine Process at ERMS

We get a lot of questions about symptoms and quarantine. If you have any questions, feel free to use this tool to see current guidelines we have from the health department and quarantine types specific to your situation. We use a modified version of this tool when determining exposure and length of quarantine. This tool is for your information only and does not collect any data. Please contact the school if you have symptoms or confirmed exposure to a positive COVID case.

Stress and Anxiety Group

Feeling stressed out or anxious? We want to help! Let one of our counselors know and we’ll make sure we connect you with resources and others that can support you.
