Principal's Message

  • Dear Piute Parents and Students,

    As we begin the 2017-2018 school year, I would like to offer up a few things that will ensure that your child will have a positive and productive academic school year.

    The staff at Piute has very high expectations of ourselves on being a career and college readiness campus. Your child will have great opportunities and support to promote from middle school with a great academic base, proficient in all core subjects, so that they might take college preparatory courses in high school.  Our campus prides itself in giving every student the foundational skills, positive behavior support, values and attributes necessary for future career and college success.

    During the first week of school, your student will attend a welcome assembly showcasing all of the ways to be involved and successful.  Please read the Piute Planner with your student to reinforce these conversational topics at home.

    • Piute Planner – Students use this daily to write assignments, homework, tests, etc. and are expected to show this to parents each night..
    • PowerSchool Parent Portal – Please check on grades and assignments daily.  Students will receive a password from their Homeroom teacher.
    • Teacher Emails – Communicate frequently as our teachers will respond with 24 hours.
    • Positive Can-Do Attitude – Students will pay attention, ask questions, seek help when necessary, participate rigorously, and be3 a positive addition to the classroom every day.
    • Assignments – Do them when they are assigned.   It takes 14 A’s to make up one F (or zero) on an assignment.  Missing assignments are the #1 reason students fall into academic probation.
    • Keep Your Eye on the Prize – Pick a career or college, work towards that goal, and know that with hard work, determination and follow-thru, you’ll reach your dream.
    • Short and Long Term Academic Goals – Establish them now, write them down, post on the refrigerator, and refer to them often.
    • Get Involved – Participate in a sport, club or elective to showcase your special talents.
    • Choose Friends Wisely – Surround yourself with people who cause you to make the right choices about your behavior and academics.

    The upcoming school year will be an exciting and rewarding experience for your child.  Our staff is committed to your child’s success and we look forward to working with you.

    Sincerely,

    Michael Davis

    Principal
