I would like to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving! It has been my pleasure to serve the students, parents, and community of Mountain Shadows. I'm thankful for the faculty and staff I work with on a daily basis and all the students I'm fortunate to observe in the classrooms. It warms my heart to see the instruction and learning taking place as well as students being able to articulate where they are in their learning process. Thank you to our amazing teachers, staff, parents, and students for all that you do!
Tuesday, November 23, 2021 is an Early Out Day. Students will be dismissed at 12:30 pm.
Thank you to our students and families for all of the donations for the Utah Food Bank! It's been wonderful to see the generosity of our community coming together to help others in need. Thank you to our awesome PTA for organizing our Utah Food Bank Drive at school.
We will be having Halloween Festivities on Friday, Oct. 29. Classrooms will have the festivities between 10:00 am - 11:30 am. Please contact your child's teacher for more information about the class festivities or your child's class Cub Buddy (through PTA). Students will be eating sack lunches in class that day.
We are planning a Halloween parade outside if weather permits. The school will send out a skylert message at 10:30 am to inform parents if the parade will take place or not. If weather permits outside, we will have the parade from 11:45 am - 12:30 pm.
The parade will start in the classes with Ms. Susuico and Ms. Mondragon leading. Administrators will lead the classes out the southwest of the building and through the south side of the building. We will guide students towards the east side of the building and through the second grade doors. Students will return to their classes to gather their belongings and exit through their grade level doors led by their classroom teacher. Parents will be able to observe their child(ren) in the parade outside towards the south or east side of the building. Please do not block the parade route while waiting.
Flexible Friday Schedule
Jordan District has provided four Flexible Fridays during the 2021 – 2022 school year. Please mark the following Flexible Friday dates on your calendar: Sept. 10, 2021, Nov. 19, 2021, Feb. 11, 2022 and April 29, 2022. Students are not required to attend school on Flexible Fridays but it is still an instructional day.
Based on the needs of Mountain Shadows, we have structured Flexible Fridays to fit the needs of our students and provide collaboration and professional development for our teachers. Teachers will be available for tutoring from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Flexible Fridays. Teachers will remind parents the week of a Flexible Friday. Parents/guardians will inform their child’s teacher prior to the Flexible Friday if their child will be attending between 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. with the specific time of their child’s attendance. Parents will need to indicate how the student will be attending via drop off, walking, riding a bike, etc.
Teachers and students will focus on writing this year. On Flexible Fridays, teachers will assign a writing prompt for students to complete at home. Students will be required to return their writing assignment the following Monday. More information and instructions will be provided by your child’s teacher.
Lunch will be served in the cafeteria on Flexible Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. All students will need to eat in the cafeteria. We will not be offering a grab and go lunch this year as we did last year. A note will be sent home the week of a Flexible Friday. Please indicate whether your child will be eating lunch at school on that day. The nutrition service workers want to ensure they have the correct lunch count to prepare for that day.
Thank you for your understanding!
Estimados Padres/ Tutores Legales

Basándonos en las necesidades de Mountain Shadows, hemos estructurado los viernes flexibles para satisfacer las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes y brindar colaboración y desarrollo profesional para nuestros maestros. Los maestros estarán disponibles para tutoría de 8:30 a.m. a 10:00 a.m. los viernes flexibles. Los maestros recordarán a los padres la semana del viernes flexible. Los padres / tutores legales informarán al maestro de su hijo antes del viernes flexible si su hijo asistirá entre las 8:30 a.m. y las 10:00 a.m. con la hora específica de asistencia de su hijo (a). Los padres deberán indicar cómo asistirá el estudiante al dejarlo, caminarán, montarán la bicicleta, etc.
Los maestros y estudiantes se enfocarán en la escritura este año. Los viernes flexibles, los maestros asignarán un tema de escritura para que los estudiantes la completen en casa. Se requerirá que los estudiantes devuelvan su tarea de escritura el lunes siguiente. El maestro de su hijo proporcionará más información e instrucciones..
El almuerzo se servirá en la cafetería los viernes flexibles de 10:00 a.m. a 10:45 a.m. Todos los estudiantes deberán comer en la cafetería. No ofreceremos un almuerzo para llevar este año como lo hicimos el año pasado. Se enviará una nota a casa la semana de un viernes flexible. Por favor indique si su hijo almorzará en la escuela ese día. Los trabajadores del servicio de nutrición quieren asegurarse de tener el recuento correcto de almuerzos para prepararse para ese día.
