Make-Up Day Feb 17 for Weather-Related Cancellation

  • Uncategorized

To make up for the instructional time lost due to the weather-related cancellation of school on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, a make-up day will be held on Presidents Day.

All Canyons District schools will now hold school on Feb. 17 on their usual Monday schedules. Buses also will be operating that day.

The Presidents Day holiday was previously set aside by the District’s Calendar Committee as the designated make-up day for emergency school closures for the  2019-2020 school year. Under Utah law, public schools must conduct school for at least 990 instructional hours over a minimum of 180 days each academic year, and recover any days lost due to inclement weather. Districts are expected to build a recovery day into their calendars so as to provide families and employees advance notice of the possible need and timing for a make-up day.

Make-A-Wish Fundraiser

Parents, guardians, and students,

This year’s Make-A-Wish Fundraiser is to raise money for a little boy named Nathan. Nathan is 9 years old, is a student in CSD, was recently diagnosed with lymphoma, and wishes to go to Disney World. The fundraiser will run from February 3rd – 14th. Students can bring in coins, cash, checks, or parents can make online donations using this link. https://canyons.successfund.com/ihmsmakeawish The donation portal opens this Friday and the drop-offs for physical donations will be in the front office.

Our goal is to raise $10,000. Last year we raised nearly $8,000. A wish costs approximately $5,000 so we’re going to try and help Nathan and another child get their wish. Teachers, counselors, and administration are offering fun rewards for every $1,000 dollars we raise including free seat days, teachers dyeing their hair, balloon animals, and fun lessons like salsa dancing in Spanish and live animal drawings in art. This is also a competition between the grades with a teacher assembly for the grade that donates the most money.

We have 5 spirit days planned based on Nathan’s likes and personality.

  • Wed. 5th – Disney Day for Nathan’s wish
  • Thurs. 6th – Pajama day because you want to stay in your pajamas when you’re sick
  • Friday 7th – Crazy hats and socks because Nathan is a jokester
  • Tues. 11th – Superhero day for Nathan’s love of superheroes
  • Friday 14th – Red for Nathan’s favorite color & Valentine’s day

This is an amazing fundraiser that impacts so many students beyond just Nathan. Your community support is setting an example for giving and caring that will leave lasting impressions on all the students that attend Indian Hills Middle School.

Did you know Utah was one of the first states to enact laws to protect and provide hope to victims of sextortion? Parents, don’t miss this free seminar featuring Michelle Busch-Upwall from the Utah Attorney General’s Office. Busch-Upwall, a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce, will discuss ways for parents to safeguard their children from sexting and a form of blackmail known as sextortion while offering tips for what to do if you encounter it. The Jan. 15 event will be held at Indian Hills Middle, but is open to all Canyons District parents and high-school-age students. Families are advised to leave younger children at home due to the mature nature of the presentation. Certificated Canyons District employees who attend the event are eligible for one hour of credit toward re-licensure.
