ELP Testing

 

The Salt Lake City School District's elementary Extended Learning Program (ELP) provides gifted educational services for identified gifted and high ability Kindergarten through grade eight students. As part of the eligibility identification process for the 2020-21 school year, parents of pre-k through grade seven students may choose to have their child evaluated. This evaluation consists of both cognitive and academic assessments.

Students qualifying for a Magnet ELP placement have shown that they need an academic program that allows them to move more quickly, work with more complex concepts, and delve more deeply into academic content.
ELP services are available at all district elementary schools, with full-day Magnet classes at Emerson (dual immersion), Hawthorne, and Whittier Elementary schools. Testing is for the program, not a specific school. Parents of eligible students may make a first, second, and third choice of school, but placement at a specific school is not guaranteed.

Please apply online on the ELP district website, You may contact Anneli Segura, ELP Administrative Assistant, at 801-578-8573.

DAY CARES SERVING EMERSON

When choosing a day care for your child, you may want to ask them about transportation.  A few examples of questions are:  where is the pick up and drop off area, do they prefer morning or full day for kindergarten, do they transport early for breakfast or do they serve it at their center?  Visit the center at different times of the day, ask about activities, policies, etc.  Below are listed the day cares that have served Emerson.

Eureka Math

Eureka Math Parent Resources

Your involvement in your child’s education can have a significant impact on his or her success in school.  That is why the teacher-writers who developed the curriculum, also created a suite of parent support resources that will help you support your child at homework time. These resources include:

• Homework Helpers — A grade-level resource that provides step-by-step explanations of how to work problems similar to those found in Eureka Math homework assignments. There is a Homework Helper to go with every homework assignment in the curriculum.

• Parent Tip Sheets — Topic-level tip sheets that explain math strategies and models provide key vocabulary, sample problems, and links to useful videos.

Watch for a Eureka Math parent letter to come home with your student.  This resource will provide step-by-step directions on how you can create an online account so that you can start accessing these fantastic resources.

Safe Schools

Dear SLCSD Families,

 

Excellence and Equity: Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day: this is our vision statement for the Salt Lake City School District (SLCSD). We are committed to achieving this vision and ensuring ALL students in our district obtain a quality education.  

 

We believe in our students and in their hopes, dreams, and potential. Our schools and our students are strengthened by our district’s diversity. SLCSD embraces and supports all of our students, regardless of background, race, ethnicity, or any other factor. And we will continue to champion our students and families, and to welcome and teach every single child who enters our school doors.

 

In January 2017, the SLCSD Board of Education passed a Safe School Resolution affirming our district’s commitment to our students and our schools. During these uncertain times, we appreciate the support of our teachers and our parents in having conversations with students about current events and reassuring them that school will always be a safe space.

 

Below are some tips to help adults talk with children about these important yet challenging topics:

 

  • Don’t be afraid to talk to children about recent events that appear in the news and on social media.
  • Promote a sense of safety by acknowledging current events, and ask children if they have any questions or concerns they would like to talk about.
  • Use age-appropriate language (i.e. talk to elementary-school-aged children about the importance of being a good friend and valuing each other’s differences).
  • Share experiences, when appropriate.
  • Model good behavior, such as being supportive of other cultures.
  • Share ideas about how our children can respond to those who are displaying inappropriate behavior.

During the school year, SLCSD administrators and counselors are a good resource to assist teachers and parents in addressing any concerns that may arise when speaking to children. We in SLCSD will never stop doing what is right for ALL of our students.

 

Yours in education,

 

Lexi Cunningham, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Salt Lake City School District
