Dear Greenville Elementary Families,
I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2021-22 school year! For those of you who are new to our school, please know that you are coming to a wonderful place. Our teachers and staff are caring, hardworking, and innovative. We are a collaborative and driven team as we take learning seriously and strive to make personal connections that help students succeed.
This is my third year as the principal of Greenville Elementary. I taught third grade for seven years, fifth grade for eight years, and I have been a principal since 2013. I have been fortunate to work for the Cache County School District my entire career. I am thrilled to get to know you and engage in the educational process together. A strong relationship between home and school is a key factor for educational success. As principal, my door is always open, and I welcome your input. Research continues to show a strong correlation between increased parental involvement and high student success.
We are excited to welcome the following to our Greenville Family:
Angela Whelan: 3rd Grade Teacher
Annie Rodriguez: 5th Grade Teacher
Sarah Vazquez: 6th Grade Teacher
Holly Corbridge: Literacy Facilitator
Kylie Jensen: Art Teacher
Each new teacher comes highly qualified. We are tremendously fortunate to have these teachers on our team.
We would also like to let you know about some other staffing changes that have occured:
- Cora Edgar, former 3rd grade teacher is moving to Kindergarten
- Sara Coleman, former 2nd grade teacher is moving to 3rd grade
- Jennifer Wilkes, former 6th Grade teacher is now a math facilitator for the District. She will serve our school as well as other schools.
We look forward to working with you and your child.
Troy J. Pugmire

Dates to Remember:
Open House (optional and informal): August 17th @ 2:00-4:00pm- Some students adjust better if they can visit the school prior to school starting. This is particularly true for those new to the school. In an attempt to ease transitions for students, we are having an informal school Open House (Teachers will be in their classrooms preparing for the first day of school.) on August 17th from 2:00-4:00pm. We will hold a Back to School Night the following week for parents. During this evening parents will also have an opportunity to sign up for the PTA or School Community Council. These organizations provide essential support to our school community.
Kindergarten Curriculum Night: August 25th @ 7:00 pm
Back to School Night (for parents): Thursday, August 26th @ 6-7pm We will have three 15 minute rotations (6:00 p.m., 6:20 p.m., 6:45 p.m.).

Please be sure to have your child/children here on time. Students who are consistently tardy are at a clear disadvantage and usually arrive feeling frantic and unprepared. All students who arrive after 9:10 AM (tardy) must sign in at the office. If your child is going to be absent, please call and inform our school office at 435-750-7888. Please help them be successful by having them in attendance as much as possible. In the interest of safety, please do not drop off your children before 8:35, as there is no supervision before that time.
Bus schedules are available online: CCSD Bus Schedules and Stops Please be advised that the schedules change during the summer and are not finalized until the week before school starts.
Drop off and Pick up:
Circle Drive: This area is for students who are prepared to immediately exit/enter the vehicle. The entrance is on 400 East. Keep the line moving by pulling as far forward as possible. For their safety, students should exit/enter from the passenger side only. Drivers do not exit vehicles in this zone. Parents exit onto 2500 North with a right turn only.
Parking Lots: Designated parking lots are on the west of the school and northwest of the circle drive. These parking lots are for parents/caretakers to park, exit the vehicle, and assist their child to the school. Do not stop or exit the vehicle in the middle of a parking lot. Students in these areas must be accompanied by an adult until they are safely away from cars.
2500 North: Buses drop off and pick up along 2500 North. Please leave this area clear for buses. North Park police have requested that students do not cross the busy streets by our school unassisted by an adult. Students wishing to cross these streets should use the assistance of the crossing guard.
Meal Prices and Menus:
Lunch and breakfast will continue to be free for students. We will let you know if this changes. If a student only gets milk, then you must pay for it: $0.35.
Breakfast is served from 8:40-9:00 AM. If you would like to join your student(s) for lunch, an adult ticket can be purchased at the office for $3.50.

Back to School Night:
Thursday, August 26th @ 6:00-7:00pm
Each month we email a Dragon’s Nest Newsletter to tell you what’s happening at Greenville Elementary. Most communication from school will be by email in order to save money, resources, and time.
PTA information will be sent home with your child on the first day of school. Most of the information from this packet will also be available at the district website, www.ccsdut.org.
Greenville Community Council has some available positions. This is a great way to have some input on happenings at our school. You can get a nomination form here and turn it into the office.
School lunch menus, calendar, and other information can always be found on this website, www.ccsdut.org/greenville.
