End of the School Year
The last day of school is June 2, 2017. We will be having our end of the year dance on the last day of school. It will start at 9:00 am. Parents/Guardians can bring chairs and/or blankets from home to sit down on outside. It is an early day out and students will be released at 12:45 pm. School lunch will not be provided on the last day of school due to early release.
Remember to have your child read at least 20 minutes each day and practice math fluency (addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication). It will help your child for next school year. Practice makes perfect!
Hope you have a safe and enjoyable summer break!

Proposed Calendar Change for 2017-2018
Dear Majestic Families!
Your child should have brought home information about a proposed calendar change for next year. If
you did not receive this information, you can find it attached to this email, or on our school website: http://majestic.jordandistrict.org
Majestic Elementary is proposing to increase our instructional day by 10 minutes Monday through Thursday (8:40-3:30) in exchange for 8 half days of instruction, with the remainder of the day spent in professional development as a faculty. We are also proposing a calendar adjustment for three sessions of Academic Parent Teacher Teams taking place in November, February, and May, with an additional Compensatory Day added to the calendar for Teachers after our third session in May.
Our PTA and School Community Council have approved these changes, and we are seeking input from all of our families before making a final decision. Please click HERE to answer a few simple questions or click the following link.
Your feedback is important to us. If you have any additional comments, questions, or concerns, please contact our main office at (801) 565-7458.
The following information was sent out on Friday, March 3, 2017. If you would like another copy, you may pick one up in the office.
SCHOOL CLIMATE SURVEY
Beginning February 13, 2017 through March 31, 2017, our school will be administering a school climate survey. All parents/guardians and students (second grade through sixth grade) are being invited to participate.
Why are we being asked to complete a survey?
The purpose of the survey is to gather input about the school’s climate and the effectiveness of the teachers and administrators at our school. Responses are anonymous and no personal information will be collected. Reports will be made available for teachers and administrators to use in school improvement efforts. The survey is short, taking less than 10 minutes to complete.
The survey can be found online at http://bit.ly/JSDParentSurvey and is available in both English and Spanish.
Students will take the student survey during the school day. The first page of the survey allows the respondent to opt out of the survey by clicking “I do not wish to take the survey.” If you do not want your child to take the survey, your child may opt out at the time of administration.
Click here to take the survey: http://bit.ly/JSDParentSurvey
Thank you for your participation!
Ms. Susuico – Assistant Principal
We would like to thank our Majestic parents/guardians for attending APTT. We appreciate the time you dedicated to attend. We hope you learned some great activities that you’ll be able to do at home with your child. We appreciate your partnership in your child’s education. If you have any questions about the activities, please contact your child’s teacher for more information. Again, thank you for all of your support!
APTT Raffle Prizes
Don’t miss out on these great family prizes. We have a movie night prize, a family game night prize, and an outdoor family fun prize. If a parent(s) attends APTT night, he/she will be given a survey to fill out with a couple of questions about APTT. When the parent turns in the survey, he/she will be given a raffle ticket to fill out. We will draw three lucky winners during our Monday Morning Meeting. Parents do not need to attend. We will contact the winners. If a parent has a child in kindergarten, third grade and sixth grade, he/she could have three chances to win if he/she attends all APTT meetings for his/her children. Only one winner per family. Good luck! Hope to see you at APTT nights!
National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) for 4th Grade
We are pleased to announce that our school has been selected to participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as NAEP. You may have heard of NAEP. The results are called The Nation’s Report Card because it measures student achievement across the country. It is important because the results help the President, Congress, and all of our educators make decisions about how to improve our education system. Not every fourth grade student will be asked to take part in the assessment, so for those students who are chosen to participate, we encourage them to take it seriously and do their best. Fourth grade students will have a chance to have an impact on the future education policy decisions in the United States. Every student that is selected to participate makes a difference. We will be providing more information for students and teachers in the upcoming weeks.
Parents/Guardians we’re so excited for another round of APTT in February! Please mark your calendar for your child’s assigned date and time. We will have dinner, a raffle, prizes, childcare, and a whole lot of fun! Please come out and join us!
