Copper Canyon Elementary Student Handbook

Principal's message

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

WELCOME to the new school year at Copper Canyon Elementary! We are extremely excited to have your children back with us after the soft school closure of recent months. The faculty, staff, and I are all very pleased to begin the 2020-21 school year, and we extend a special welcome to anyone attending Copper Canyon for the first time and are anxious to see our former students returning.

We are proud to be a leadership school where we practice the 7 Habits of Happy Living that teach us to have self-control, consider others' feelings and viewpoints, create win-win situations, and bring important balance to our lives. As our students practice these habits, I am proud of their thoughtful actions to promote good throughout the school! They remind me there is much good in the world and brighten my day with their smiles and laughter. We thank you for your support of our Leadership program at home as well.

This handbook is designed to be an important reference throughout the school year. Please review the included school policies and procedures with your student(s). If you have questions that remain unanswered after reading the handbook, please feel free to call the school office.

We welcome your participation and support during the school year. We invite you to volunteer in the classroom and join PTA and/or our School Community Council. Together we can meet the goal of providing a positive learning environment that increases students' love of learning, helps them discover their own talents and abilities, and develop respectful relationships.

We look forward to a great year of both academic and social success for all students!

Warm regards,
Mrs. Patty Bowen

Copper Canyon Mission Statement

As a progressive school community, the mission of Copper Canyon Elementary is to provide a quality education, targeting academic achievement while facilitating growth and development of all students by providing meaningful instruction, fostering positive self-concept and offering a variety of enrichment opportunities.

We believe:

  • Everyone should feel safe at school.
  • All students can behave positively.
  • Students have a right to learn, and teachers have a right to teach.
  • All faculty and staff members are responsible for all students.
  • Positives change behavior - negatives temporarily stop behavior.

It is the intent of the faculty and staff to lead students toward being productive, informed, disciplined, and fulfilled individuals. To achieve these goals, mutual respect and understanding must be present in the learning process on the part of all participants - the faculty, staff, students, parents and community.

Code of Conduct

Respect is the key word in Jordan District Schools - respect for self, others and property. All students are expected to behave in a courteous and pleasant manner. Appropriate behaviors are expected in the classroom, on the playground, on buses, on the way to and from school and at all school activities. Copper Canyon Coyotes should abide by the following school courtesy rules for behavior :

  • Be Kind
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Safe

When students follow the school courtesy rules, they feel good, learn more and may earn extra privileges. They may also earn positive notes home, nominations for our Character Counts, and Lunch with the Principal.
