Chinese Immersion Program Enrollment

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

We wanted to remind you of our Parent Night scheduled for Tuesday, January 22, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. The original letter that was sent out said Thursday; however, that was incorrect and the parent meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 22nd.

This meeting is a great time to learn about the program and applications will be available that night. The process for enrollment in the immersion program is as follows:

  • Those families residing in our boundaries will have the opportunity to fill the program first. The date to turn in applications will be starting on Monday, January 7th, through Friday, February 22nd, 2019. The applications will be put in a lottery to fill the available spaces. If we have more applications than spaces available, a waiting list will be formed. Applications are available online at:
  • If the program does not fill, families who live outside the boundary of Monte Vista but reside in Jordan School District, will be put in a lottery to fill the available spaces.
  • If there is still space available anyone living outside the boundary of Jordan School District will be put in a lottery system.

Thank you for considering immersion for your future first grader. We are looking forward to seeing you at the meeting.

Kindergarten Registration for 2019-2020 School Year

Dear Parents:

It is important that we obtain an accurate list of all children qualifying for kindergarten at Monte Vista Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year. If you have a child that will be five years of age ON or BEFORE September 1, 2019, the child qualifies for next year's kindergarten program. State law requires that all school districts in Utah abide by the same September 1st entrance cut-off date.

If you know of a neighbor that has a qualifying kindergarten child, please share this information with them and ask them to contact the school and register their kindergarten child.

To register your kindergarten child, please come in to Monte Vista.

Meet our new Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Monte Vista Elementary. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education excellence! As a mother of three, and a grandmother to seven, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection. Parents are the first teachers we have and I believe that by working together, we can ensure every child’s academic, social and emotional needs are being met.

I have worked in Jordan School District for fourteen years in a variety of roles teaching 5th, 4th and 3rd grade at Sunrise, Hayden Peak and Rose Creek Elementaries respectively. For the past three years I was the BYU Facilitator at Rose Creek Elementary. As Facilitator, I had the privilege of mentoring and working with new teachers.

I truly believe that great schools are the result of great teaching. We have some of the best teachers here at Monte Vista, as you well know. Together we are dedicated to helping all students learn at high levels and develop their leadership skills in order for students to be successful in life.

Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to work with this amazing community. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your children.  Our school mission statement sums it up best, “Ensuring academic and social success by connecting with every child, every day.”

All the best,

Nanette Ririe
