Amelia Earhart Elementary School needs Foster Grandparents!  


The Utah County Foster Grandparent Program is looking for seniors 55 or older, to serve as mentors and tutors for children and youth within community organizations such as schools, hospitals, and youth centers. There they work with trained professionals to provide assistance, support, and knowledge to children and teens with special and exceptional needs.  Foster Grandparents receive a small stipend (about $200 per month), a meal each day of work, and mileage reimbursement.  Volunteers must be income eligible (earn approximately $2,000 per month or less for a single person), be willing to serve 15 or more hours per week and have the desire to help others.  This is a fun and rewarding way to serve in your community!  

Call the Foster Grandparent Program at 801-851-7784 for an application or questions.   

We are excited to welcome our awesome new and returning students as well as our new and returning teachers and staff.

This is going to be a great year!!!

Message from Mr. McCarty

Dear Parents and Students of Amelia Earhart,


I hope that each of you are having a wonderful summer.  I look forward to school starting next month, and I know it is going to be a great year!

I know that many of you are excited to find out who will be your child's teacher.  Please plan on coming to Amelia Earhart on August 3rd anytime between 2:00 - 6:00.  We will have computers set up to assist parents in updating their contact and emergency contact information online.  After that, you will be given a packet with information including who will be your child's teacher.

If you are unable to make that time, the office will be open to do the same process on August 4th - 6th from 9:00 am - 1:00 pmp.  

We do need parents there to give the information, so we will not be able to give it if just your child shows up.

If those times do not work for you, we will be sending out the packet in the mail on August 7th and it should arrive shortly after that.

Thanks, and have a great rest of the summer!

Sincerely, Mr. McCarty

Amelia Earhart 2014 SAGE Tests

2013-14 SAGE Summative average proficiencies shown below reflect a new baseline for Utah's end of level testing. The new SAGE test is different than the previous Criteria Referenced Tests (CRT), and more challenging, and therefore cannot be compared to CRT results from previous years. SAGE tests are adaptive, with questions based on new Utah Core standards, and contain technology-based questions versus all multiple choice.
