Clayton’s very own C and A students are working with The Community Foundation of Utah and the University of Utah Medical School to help the Andikwame Jr. High School in Ghana, Africa. This Jr. High is need of a library, books, internet resources, and support from us! Our students are having a BYU vs. U of U battle to see which mask brings in the most change.
C and A students are waiting in the lobby every morning this week with buckets to collect your change! We predict that the winner of this challenge will also win big on the field! Students, bring some spare change and help your team win! Your change will make a change in Ghana!

SLCSD’s Extended Learning Program (ELP) provides specialized educational services for identified gifted and high ability 7th and 8th grade middle school students. ELP services are available at all district middle schools with more extensive services provided through ELP Magnet Programs at Clayton, Hillside, and Glendale Middle Schools, and West High School.
Interested parents must submit registration and disclosure statement forms to the district ELP office between September 19 and November 2, 2016. Registration and disclosure forms are available on the district website: http://www.slcschools.org/departments/curriculum/extended-learning-program, or contact Amy Burris, ELP Administrative Assistant, at the district ELP office at 801-578-8573.

They will begin at 6:00 pm at the Administration Building, 440 East 100 South, rooms 112-114.
As part of the eligibility process for the 2017-18 school year, gifted and high ability 6th and 7th grade students may participate in middle school testing which includes an out-of-level CogAT, an abilities assessment, and out-of-level IOWA reading and math assessments. The dates for testing will be announced in late fall; check our website for those dates. Students who live outside district boundaries may call the ELP office for a testing appointment. Out-of-district student tests will be scheduled for November 4, 11, 18, December 2 or 9.
Students who are currently in Magnet ELP do not need to retest.
Letters containing PowerSchool Parent-Portal information were mailed home earlier this week. PowerSchool is a web-based student information system with a centralized database and when teachers enter grades and attendance information for their class, that same data is immediately available to the school, parents, and students.
With PowerSchool, parents/guardians can access vital information about their children quickly and accurately. In addition to being able to check recorded assignments, grades, and attendance, parents may also use the Parent-Portal to email teachers and manage which school alerts you receive and how often you receive them.
If you did not receive a letter and would like your Access ID and Access Passcode to create your account or link your student to an existing account, please call the office at 801-481-4810.
