Would you like to have a voice in how Sprucewood spends their LandTrust money and give input on academic decisions? Then please consider running for School Community Council. We meet the 2nd Monday of most months.
The School Community Council learns about student achievement at school and helps provide input for how parents are viewing what we are doing to help children learn. The council is also responsible (new this year) for how to provide children and parents with internet safety information. Right now, we are planning a Parent Information night in February on Internet Safety and helping students make safe choices in general.
The council makes decisions about the School LAND Trust Program. LAND stands for Learning And Nurturing Development. Your council or committee prepares a plan that identifies the school’s greatest academic need(s). Plans are then submitted to Canyons School District and the State of Utah. The plans are approved by local school boards for implementation the following school year. Our community council then receives an annual dividend from the permanent State School Fund every July to implement Sprucewood’s approved plan during the next school year. Each year Sprucewood receives an average of $32,000 from the LAND Trust, which is used to increase and improve learning opportunities for our students. We have been using the money to pay for Reading Intervention Assistants which helps to close the achievement gap for our struggling readers.
This year, Sprucewood will be implementing a new schedule and some new classes that are called "Brain Boosters." You can find the bell schedule under the Our School tab. Every Friday will be an early out day for students to provide teachers time to plan. The new "Brain Booster" classes will allow students the opportunity to learn about Visual Arts, Technology, Playworks and Media/Library. Students will attend Playworks and Media/Library for 30 minutes each week and Technology for 60 minutes one week and Art for 60 minutes on the alternating week. Please join us in welcoming Mr. Hale for Art, Mrs. Royce for Playworks, Mrs. Heil for Technology and Mrs. Serdar for Media/Library. We are thrilled with the opportunity to offer this new curriculum to our Sprucewood Students!
