“The Jordan School District Board of Education has asked for patron feedback on possible options to help establish boundaries for the two new elementary schools scheduled to open in the fall of 2017 in Herriman and South Jordan. An information letter will be sent home today with each student and mailed to each family. Please visit www.elementaryschoolboundary.com for detailed information regarding the boundary options under consideration and to provide feedback on the options through a short survey.”
It is also time to begin pre-registration for kindergarten students. If you have a student who will be five on or before September 1, 2017, please complete the form that was sent home today or stop by the office. If you have a friend or neighbor that might not have received these communications, please have them contact our office at (801) 302-0553.
Interesting facts were shared about how many stop arm violations happen. Stop arm violations are when the bus turns on the red lights and puts out the stop sign. On Tuesday, bus drivers were asked to track how many drivers blow by busses when the stop sign is out. Drivers reported 61 different events. 26 in the morning, 31 in the afternoon, and the rest were at Kindergarten pick-up. 44 of them passed the bus from the front. 17 came from the rear of the bus. 58 passed on the left side of the bus and 3 passed on the right. The right side of the bus is the side students load/unload the bus.

Math Facts While You’re Walking
Daybreak has made some great improvements with applying math facts to the stairs. So as students walk up, they are learning!
Big Thanks to The UPS Store for improving our learning in such a fun way.

Daybreak Elementary has some exciting news to share with you. Our principal and teachers have worked diligently over the past few months to write grants and seek out business donations (around $75,000) to enrich and expand educational opportunities for our students. We invested the money in the following programs:
- Technology (ipad labs, computers, learning applications)
- Guided reading and math libraries (books)
- Math manipulatives
- Assemblies to highlight the arts and character education
- Liberty Wall
- Exercise videos to promote physical activity
- Student incentives
Daybreak Elementary has gone above and beyond to compete with other schools and secure these grants for our children. We are thrilled our students will get extra benefits because of these funds.
