As a parent you also have the ability to track your child’s progress daily through Canvas and at midterm and quarter’s end through Powerschool. We have tutorials on our website to assist parents with accessing both Canvas and Powerschool with much of this information found under the S.B.L. (Standards Based Learning) tab on our website: look for the link “Tech Tools.”

In the absence of in-person parent teacher conferences, we want to reassure you that all Ecker Hill teachers are always available to answer questions or address any concerns that you may have about your child. Please do not hesitate to contact your teachers via email or by phone. Teachers will work with you directly to schedule a virtual meeting if one is needed at any time during the school year.

End of Year Testing

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

Ecker Hill will be administering the Utah RISE end-of-year assessments for Math, Language Arts, and Science on May 17-20 from 8:50-11:25 AM. Students will take their assessments in their advisory classes. During this time, we will be on an alternative bell schedule (see attached). Regular classes will proceed after testing each day.

There are items to note to prepare your child for testing: 

  1. Encourage your child to get a good night’s sleep each evening and eat breakfast in the morning. 
  2. Students will need to arrive and report to their testing location with a fully charged laptop each day.
  3. All students will need CORDED headphones. We will have a supply, if students are not able to bring their own.
  4. Students will have a break and PTO will provide snacks. Please send a water bottle with your child. 

Thank you, 

Amy Jenkins, Principal

A Virtual Night at the Museum / Una Noche Virtual en el Museo

Middle level students have unique needs and capabilities and are truly caught in the middle between childhood and adulthood. Students at Ecker Hill hold the key to much of what they know and are able to do. They understand their strengths and can identify the things that are difficult for them. Too often they are the last people consulted in evaluating their own learning.

On March 24th, we are holding ‘A Night at the Museum’ as a way to provide all of our students an opportunity to showcase their work and allow them to discuss their learning. This evening is focused on students and their growth. There are three main purposes for this evening:

  1. Show evidence of student learning;
  2. Provide opportunity for students to reflect on their learning;
  3. Foster and promote responsible, respectful, and productive relationships among school, family and community.

 

Los estudiantes de nivel medio tienen necesidades y capacidades únicas y están realmente atrapados en el medio entre la infancia y la edad adulta. Los estudiantes de Ecker Hill tienen el conocimiento de todo lo que saben y son capaces de hacer. Comprenden sus puntos fuertes y pueden identificar las cosas que les resultan difíciles. Con demasiada frecuencia son los últimos en ser consultados para evaluar su propio aprendizaje.

El 24 de marzo, celebramos “Una noche en el museo” como una forma de proporcionar a todos nuestros estudiantes una oportunidad para mostrar su trabajo y permitirles discutir su aprendizaje. Esta noche se centra en los estudiantes y su crecimiento. Hay tres propósitos principales para esta noche:

  1. Mostrar las pruebas del aprendizaje de los alumnos;
  2. Brindar la oportunidad a los estudiantes de reflexionar sobre su aprendizaje;
  3. Fomentar y promover relaciones responsables, respetuosas y productivas entre la escuela, la familia y la comunidad.

Lunch Payments

Your child may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Assistance is available to those who qualify. Please bring in a completed application (en español.) Note: Proof of need must be attached to the application before it can be processed.

Online Lunch Account System: PayPAMS (lunch balances roll over each year)

Parent PowerSchool Access

To set up a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will need their student’s parent access ID and password. (This information is mailed home the first week of September.) Parents can link all of their students to one Parent Account, all you need is the parent access ID and password for each of your students. For instructions, see the Parent Single Sign-On Instruction Sheet.

If you lose, or didn’t receive, your Parent Account set-up instructions, contact the school. For security reasons, we will not give out account information by phone, fax, or email. Logins can be picked up in person or mailed to the home address we have on file. PowerSchool logins are reset every summer to protect your privacy.

With a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will have access to a special Email Notifications page where they can sign up for automatic progress reports. Because of this exclusive feature, it is highly recommended that parents keep their account ID and password confidential and not share it with their student. Students get their own ID and password when they pick up their laptop.
