firetruckWith help from the Idaho Falls Fire Department, we are promoting reading with the Blazing A Trail Reading Contest. Students who read the most minutes at each of our elementary schools between Feb. 11 and March 8 will win the chance to ride to school on a fire truck. The contest is open to students in grades K-6. For more details about the contest, students should check with their teachers. Thanks to Idaho Falls' firefighters for helping to spread a love of reading!

Our new behavior motto for this school year is P.R.I.D.E. We are recognizing our students that are showing: Positive Attitude, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and those Being an Example. Your students are able to earn PRIDE tickets by displaying these characteristics. There will be drawings at the end of each month for a variety of rewards.

We also will be having monthly award assemblies for all grades called SWAG Awards. SWAG stands for Students Working to Achieve Greatness. We will be acknowledging students for amazing moments here at school. The counselor or principal will be reaching to invite you to these assemblies if your child is nominated.

This year you can pay for school lunch online with no convenience fees and your payment will be posted to your student's account immediately.   Go to the efunds page, click on fund lunch, set up an account or make a one-time payment as a guest using your last name and telephone number to locate your students.

A culture that empowers, instruction that engages and technology that enables.

The district has three focus areas: Literacy, Numeracy and College and Career Readiness.

Our goal is for students to gain mastery in the traditional core subjects of English, Math, Science and Social Studies. We also want them to learn the 21st Century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, which will enable them to become lifelong learners and good citizens.
