The Wasatch County School District Board of Education is pleased to announce that all day kindergarten will be offered for all students. In an effort to meet the growing number of parental requests for all day kindergarten and the Board of Education’s goal to increase academic achievement in literacy and mathematics this change will take effect in the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. Recent research indicates improved equity and academic performance for students enrolled in all day kindergarten (Thompson & Sonnenschein, 2015).

Old Mill Elementary Literacy month is here. We are encouraging our students to "LEGO" their screens and read as much as possible. We will have weekly drawings for students who turn in their reading slips and also weekly prizes for classes who do the most reading per grade level. The classes who read the most per grade level by the end of the month will get to nominate a teacher to compete in the Sumo Racing Challenge for a chance to win a night's stay and a much deseved dinner out. May the best class win...let the competition begin! Please click on the video link below for more information.
COMMUNITY COUNCIL: Our Community Council has three openings this year that need to be filled. Being on the Community Council is a great way to be involved with the school. The council is a committee of elected volunteer parents and school staff members whose main purpose is to create a spending plan for trustland monies and safe walking routes to school. The position is for two years. The Council meets once a month.
