Welcome to Kanab Elementary School "Home of the Buckaroos". This is an amazing school with amazing staff and students! This year we will be implementing a new math program in grades K-5, “Go Math”, which is designed to meet the Utah Core Standards. There is an online portion that your children can use to review and reinforce math strategies that can be used for home and school. Please ask your child’s teacher for more information about this.
The theme for this year is “The Power of One” which defines a combined effort between the student, parent, teacher, and community in assisting that every student, every day is reaching their potential. Reading with your child every day is such a powerful piece of the all encompassing effort. Also the new Utah Core is more rigorous and asks students to tell why they choose the answers that they do instead of just getting the right answer. Discussing with your child how they completed the process while they are working on their homework will prepare them to be successful. We know that a strong partnership between home, school, and community will greatly benefit our future as well as theirs.
