SAGE Online Training Tests are Available
Did you know that students may go online anytime (at school or at home) and take advantage of the Training Tests available to help prepare them for the upcoming SAGE testing? They are available and we encourage all students grades 3-6, along with their parents, to go on and take advantage of this opportunity. The Training Tests are designed to help students become familiar with the SAGE testing format and tools that are available to assist them with the tests. You may read more about the Training Tests by visiting the SAGE testing website and clicking the "Training Tests" icon on the right of the page.

Information for Parents
Our school has received a grant from the Utah STEM Action Center to use a digital mathematics technology product called i-Ready for two years for a limited number of students. Your student will receive a userID so that they can have the opportunity to use this product to support their learning of mathematics. For accountability purposes, data are being collected to assess how well students are improving in mathematics. Below are links to a letter of information that explains this in more detail. Please sign and return this form only if you are NOT willing to have your child’s data included in the assessment of the product. We appreciate being given the grant to use this product with our students and are participating in the data collection so that that the Utah State Office of Education and the STEM Action Center can understand the effectiveness of this program.
*** Important Parent Announcement ***
As a reminder, we feel a need to review the following safety guidelines:
- Don’t drop students off before 8:00 am. There is not proper supervision before that and it is not safe.
- Students who ride to and from school in parent vehicles or carpools need to be picked up on time. Any student who is staying after school longer than ten minutes, parents will be contacted.
- Please do not have your children cross any streets other than in designated crosswalks to meet you in your vehicle.
- Provo City provides crossing guards who are be stationed at Center Street and 2530 West. We strongly suggest that students coming and going from school cross at these points to avoid accidents.
- Students who walk or ride bikes to and from school need to do so in groups if possible and be sure and stay on the sidewalks.
- Students who ride the bus need to go straight to their designated pick up areas to wait to board the bus. Please stay on the sidewalks while waiting for the bus.
Student safety is extremely important to all of us at Amelia Earhart Elementary. We ask parents to help us review these safety guidelines on a regular basis along with the importance of staying away from strangers. This includes accepting rides or talking with people they do not know.
