Letter from Principal Burt

  • Dear Lewiston Elementary Families,

    I want to officially, welcome all of you to the 2019-20 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 passionate, caring, hardworking, and always learning something new for the benefit of your children. We are a collaborative and driven group who take learning seriously while also making personal connections that help children succeed.

    This is my fourth year as the principal at Lewiston Elementary.  I am thrilled at the opportunity to get to know all of you even better this year as we engage in the educational process together.  I am a big believer in communication and honesty.  If we are honest with each other and communicate with each other, then we will be successful.  I also believe that building strong relationships between home and school is a key factor in increasing student achievement.  As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. I strongly believe that parental involvement is an essential component of student success, as research continues to show a strong correlation between increased involvement and high student success.

    We will be bidding farewell to Ashlena Johnson.  She has accepted a position as Teaching Coach on the District level. Also, Becky Eck is leaving us to pursue the next chapter of her life with her natural exuberance.  Makae Doxey is moving to St. George and will continue her teaching career in Southern Utah. Carol DeFriez will be working with the ESL program at Heritage Elementary and Cheryl Dutson is moving across the highway to teach Kindergarten at White Pine Elementary.  We also had to say good-bye to our SLPs, Makaylee Birkey and Laurel Buttars.  

    There will be lots of new faces at our school for the coming school year! We would like to welcome Kirsti Russell as our new Kindergarten teacher. Charity Hansen will be joining our first-grade team.  Holly Hagler and Rebekah Braden will be completing our 4th-grade group. Kelli Myers is our newest 5th-grade teacher and she will be combining efforts with our own Cindy King who is moving to fifth grade. And last but not least, Sierra Southwick is our new SLP.

    You will have a chance to meet all of our teachers at our Back to School Night on Tuesday, August 20 at 5:30 – 7:00 pm. You will also have the opportunity to sign up for the PTA, fluoride and maybe even buy a t-shirt.  Class lists will be posted on the front windows by mid-July.

    School Hours: M-Th 9:15-3:35, F 9:15-2:20

    In the interest of safety, please do not drop off your children before 8:45 as there is no supervision before that time.  Also, please be sure to pick up your children by 3:40 in the afternoon.

     Arrival times:

    Our school day begins at 9:15 am every day.  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 9:15 am must sign in at the office. If your child will not be present, please call and inform our school office at 435-258-2923.

     Meal Prices and Menus:

    This year, school lunch will cost $2.05.  Breakfast, which is served from 8:45-9:10 am, will cost $1.40.  Lunch menus will be sent home monthly and can also be accessed on our school website by clicking on the fork and knife icon under Popular Links.  We will have forms for free and reduced lunch available at back to school night or the application can be done online.  Please consider applying even if your child plans on bringing lunch from home.  A significant amount of funding is based on our free and reduced numbers, which enables us to provide small group instruction, classroom support, and after-school programs.

     Bus Schedules:

    Bus schedules are available online: CCSD Bus Schedules and Boundaries.  Please be advised that the schedules change during the summer and are not finalized until the week before school starts.  Kindergarten times are not published.
