Class Lists

Class lists that were posted on this blog have been taken down, since future changes will be handled on a case-by-case basis and students will soon be in their classes. Bus schedules and school maps are also posted at the school. If you have any questions about your student's schedule, please contact the front office at (801) 766-6440.

Back to School Night - What to Expect

We hope you're planning to attend the PTA's Hot Dog Hello at Back-to-School Night today at Saratoga Shores from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. Of course it's a great opportunity to find classrooms, meet your student's teacher, and pay for school lunches. We hope you'll also consider joining the PTA this year. Membership costs $6 for a single member or $12 for a family membership (two adults).

The PTA will be serving hot dog meals for $2 apiece. For each paid PTA membership, you will get a ticket for one free meal. The meals include a hot dog, chips, small bottled water, and a homemade cookie.

We will also have school t-shirts, sweatshirts, and polo shirts for sale. There are new designs this year. We have a bunch of things that you can take home with you, and we will also be placing orders as needed. The costs are as follows:
  • Girls' style shirts in lilac $10
  • Ladies and larger girls' style shirts in dark purple $10
  • Unisex style shirts in youth and adult sizes in sport gray $8
  • Youth or adult zip hoodies in sport gray $22
  • Youth pullover hoodies in sport gray $22
  • Youth or adult polo shirts in white or sport gray $8
  • Limited unisex style shirts from last year $3
You can also pre-order a school yearbook for $10. These are super fun yearbooks with a soft cover and full color printing inside.

The PTA is selling vinyl window clings to promote your support of the school for only $5.

Last, Mr. Martin has graciously allowed the PTA to spearhead the Happenings book fund-raiser this year and use the profits for PTA programs. The Happenings books have traditionally been a more successful fund-raiser than some of the things the PTA has done in the past; we are hopeful that this fall fund-raiser will cover all or most of the PTA's expenses for the entire school year. We hope you will find the books well worth this year's $25 cost.

Help Needed During First Week of School

The first week of school can be hectic. Mr. Martin is asking parents to help in a few areas. Please e-mail sharkspta@gmail.com if you can help with any of these things.

Kindergarten Bus Rides

10:35-11:00  Getting 8:00 kindergarten on the bus to go home

11:00-12:30  Getting the a.m. kindergarten kids on the bus to go home and having a few parents ride on the bus to help get them off on the right stops and pick up the p.m. kids

First Grade Lunch and Recess

Our first-graders will be eating lunch in the cafeteria and having recess on the main playground for the first time. We’re looking for parents to come and help inside for lunch and outside for recess for about 45 minutes each day for the first week of school.

Wednesday, August 25th - 11:15am-12:00pm
Thursday, August 26th - 11:15am-12:00pm
Friday, August 27th – 11:15am-12:00pm

Guiding B Track Students to Class and A Track Students to the Bus Home

8:50 -9:15 Getting B track kids into their classes
2:10-2:30 Getting A track kids on the bus to go home

The first week of school can be crazy. Having a few extra parents around to help out makes a huge difference in how smoothly things run. Thanks for your help!

Saratoga Shores PTA and Mr. Martin

Kindergarten Class Lists

Kindergarten class lists will be posted on this blog on Friday, August 20.

There are some classes that are not well balanced with A track/B track students. If you can see on your class list that the 8:00 and 9:15 students don't seem equal and you have a student who could switch tracks, please contact the school at 801-766-6441. Thanks.

Hot Dog Hello

The PTA is looking for parents (or responsible teenagers) to help with the Hot Dog Hello (back-to-school night). We are looking for people to help set up or help with booths and food. If you can help at a booth for an hour (any time between 2:30 and 6:30), donate 2-3 dozen cookies (to give away as part of purchased meals) or lend us an EZ-Up shade tent, please contact our PTA president, Heather Kuntz, at 801-766-8841 or heather.kuntz@gmail.com.

Even if you can't help, we look forward to seeing you at the Hot Dog Hello from 4-6 p.m. This will be the perfect time to meet teachers, find classrooms, pay for school lunch, get school t-shirts/polos/sweatshirts (new design), order a school yearbook, and join the PTA! You can also save yourself some time in the kitchen and buy a hot dog, chips & a drink for only $2.00.

If you know anyone with kindergarten students who have not yet registered, please have them conact the school ASAP at 801-766-6440. Thanks!
