Comcast Cares Day: STEM addition on April 20th
Aspire Testing (Replaces Sage)
We are quickly coming to the end of the school year, which means it is time to talk about end of year testing. This year we will be using a test called Aspire ACT Plus (Aspire for short). Aspire will take the place of SAGE and only 9th and 10th grade students will take it.
In addition to measuring student progress on the Utah Core Standards, Aspire is designed to better prepare students to take the ACT in 11th grade. Unlike SAGE, Aspire is a timed test and has four sections that align with the ACT subject areas: Reading (90 minutes), Math (90 minutes) English (45 minutes), and Science (60 minutes). In order to accommodate the Math and Reading tests, which will take longer than our usual 90 minute periods, we will have a modified bell schedule on April 30th, May 1st, May 2nd and May 3rd. Please view the image at the bottom of this message to see the modified bell schedule.
English and Science testing will take place during the week of April 22nd. Please encourage your students to get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast, and be on time to school!
Last, but not least, for the first year of the test, results will not be available until October 2019. Results will include your student’s score, how they compare to other students in their grade, and where your student can still improve.

Introducing Smith's East High Leopard Stash!
On November 20, 2018 Smith's Food and Drug Company made a $70,000 commitment to provide food support to our school food pantry for three years. From the inception of the Stash in 2015 with PTA Presidents Patti Christensen and Jane Barker, to the fully functioning food pantry for students and their families that we have today, this partnership allows sustainability, fresh nutrition, and dependability to those in need. This pledge by Smith's not only provides needed grocery support, but will pay for summer interns/employees and some infrastructure. Today our freezer in stocked with beef and talapia. The shelves hold soups, pasta, rice, beans, and baking supplies. The fridge is loaded with eggs, cheese, butter, milk, lunch meat, and more. If you are in need of food support, please come visit the Stash and take away some amazing products! If you want to tour our services, volunteer or have questions please contact Kris.Barta@slcschools.org. The EHS student and family support program is amazing thanks to the support of our wonderful administration. It takes about 40 volunteers every week to make this all come together. Thank you to every one of you volunteers, donors, and dreamers. This labor of love has arrived!
