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 for a new year.  The faculty, staff, and I are all very pleased to begin the 2023-24 school year! We extend a special welcome to anyone attending Copper Canyon for the first time, and we look forward to seeing our former students return.

     We are proud to be a Golden Gate Kids school where we practice aspects of kindness, respect, and leadership. Students are taught to include everyone, build social and soft skills, and learn the value of service to others. These are essential skills that bring an important balance for life.  As our students practice these skills, I am proud of their thoughtful actions to lead out and 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 Golden Gate Kids 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 quality education, targeting academic achievement while facilitating the 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 the 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.
