The Hope of America program (in which 5th grade students from Saratoga Shores performed along with many other students from the area) will be broadcast on KBYU July 3rd at 12:00 p.m. and July 4th at 6:00 p.m. BYUTV will show the program on July 22 at 11:00 AM and July 23 at 11:00 p.m. Set your DVR & enjoy!
Just a reminder -- Mr. Martin invites all interested students and families to march with him in the Splash Parade this Saturday June 11th, 2011. We will meet at Westlake at 9:15am for the 10am parade. Wear your school T-shirts or school colors (purple, green, gray/silver). The school will have green and purple pom poms for kids to shake for $1 each or bring your own balloons to carry as we walk. Strollers welcome for the little ones.
We’re also looking for volunteers to help with concessions at the radKIDS booth right next to the Saratoga Springs Police Department at Harvest Hills Park during the Family Fun Festival that same day as the parade. We’ll be selling food to help raise money for a red man suit for the radKIDS program in our public schools in our city.
If you can help in the concession booth please e-mail email@example.com! Below are the available time slots. We'd love to have two or more people per slot. Bring your spouse with you or responsible children ages 12 and up are welcome to help pass out food. The Family Fun Festival is Saturday, June 11th from 11am to 6pm. Come and support the radKIDS program.
11am-1pm: Heather and Dana Kuntz
12 Noon to 2pm: Angela Webb

The school is not able to accommodate all the track requests that have been submitted. The 9:15 track is overfilled with lower-grade students. In addition, more kindergarten students are needed in the afternoon classes to keep class sizes balanced.
If you are willing to consider a change in either of these areas--or if you are moving over the summer or switching your students to another school (other than Thunder Ridge)--please contact the front office at 801-766-8349 and let them know. If there are not enough volunteers for changes, the school will have to adjust students' schedules based on the order in which track request forms were submitted. Thanks for your understanding!
The School Community Council has determined that Saratoga Shores students will focus on improving memorization of math facts during the next two school years. To get a jump start, the PTA is supporting a Summer Math Facts Challenge. Students can use a worksheet to track their progress in memorizing the math facts that are appropriate for their grade level. Students who complete the challenge and return the signed form during the first week of school will receive an award--and, more important, they will have a good baseline for learning math during the school year.
The Thunder Ridge PTA is also supporting this Challenge.
Click here for the Math Facts Challenge worksheet, or use the one that was sent home with your student on June 1. The Challenge sheet includes more details about the Challenge and also information about helpful and free math web sites that your student can use to complete the Challenge.
Saratoga Shores participates in the Box Tops and Campbell's soup labels program. You can send Box Tops and soup labels to school with your student anytime.
If you'd like an 8.5" x 11" page to attach Box Tops to, you can find several to print out by clicking here. Please do not attach soup labels to the Box Tops pages. They are two separate programs.
