  • Student Registration for New Families & Summer Hours
     
    If you are new to the Cook Elementary School community and you need to register your children, come on by as soon as you can!  Give us a call at 801-402-2200 to ensure that someone will be in the office when you come, as Mrs. Sims and Mr. Clark will not be here every day. Check our school calendar link for exact office hours.  We always like to get students registered as soon as possible, but we'll have a few days on which we'll have some more office help here in order to accommodate you.  Those two days would be Thursday, July 17th and Tuesday, August 5thClass lists will be posted in the main hall on Friday, August 8th.
     
    To complete your registration you'll need to bring your picture ID (driver's license is great), birth certificate, 2 documents that show proof of residency in our boundaries (utility bill, purchase/rental agreement, etc.), vaccination record, and emergency contacts to put on the registration form.
     
    Welcome!  We're so glad to have you as new members of our school and community!
    Mr. Clark, Principal

  • Construction Update:
    New parking lot and drop-off/pick-up nears completion!
    - Expected completion date is between Monday, August 4th, and Friday, August 8th! -
     
    parking lot construction
     
    Hello Cook Families! You may have noticed that a construction team has been tearing things up on the west side of the school. The smaller parking lot was chewed up by a big machine and recycled as part of the new asphalt pad for the portable classrooms, and the remaining asphalt is being recycled to be used in the new parking lot.
     
    Our new parking lot on the west side will be able to accommodate about 55 parked vehicles, whereas before we could only accommodate 21 cars.  The new drop-off/pick-up zone will accommodate between 20-25 vehicles, whereas before we could only accommodate 6-7 cars picking up or dropping off at a time.  As we start using this pick-up/drop off zone this fall, we would ask you to pull ahead, and if you arrive early, as you wait we would ask you to turn off your vehicles and create an idle-free zone in order to keep the air cleaner for all of us.  Approaching from the west of the school will allow those leaving the east side of this west lot the ability to turn easily to the east or west, without turning through traffic arriving from the east.  We will be asking all students who walk home heading west or south after school to exit on the south or west doors of the school in order to walk around the pick-up/drop-off zone so that they do not have to cross through the enter/exit traffic.  They will be able to avoid it entirely by walking on the sidewalk around this area.  For walking students, designate a place to meet family and friends so that they can walk home together.  If you are walking home to the east/northeast, meet out front.  If you walk home south, meet out back, and if you are walking west/northwest, then meet on the west or southwest.  This will position your group to easily walk around the new walkway, avoiding the arriving/departing vehicles in the new drop-off/pick-up zone.  We'll send a map and video demonstrating this as the school year approaches.
     
    We have new, large drains under our playground/parking, and will have an extended playground to the south, right next to the closer big toy. This new area will be where we will have a new ball wall and four tetherball stations to replace those we lost.  We'll also repaint all of the other lines for playground games and look to replace the two basketball poles that had to be removed.  We still have 4 basketball baskets up, but would like to expand it.
     
    Our other enhancements- the front remodel with our new, digital marquee, benches, walkway, and the track, will begin as the other project wraps up.  They may continue into the school year/fall, depending on how things progress with the projects and various contractors.  We'll have more details as July progresses!  Thank you for all of the support we've had on these projects from our families, PTA, and Community Council!  They've made the track, parking lot, and front remodel/marquee possible through fundraising and involvement.
    -Mr. Clark

  • Davis Reads!
     
    2013 – 2014 Theme: “Where I’m Going”
    This year's theme is based on the poem "Where I'm From" written by George Ella Lyon.  
     
    Through these activities and events this year, we hope citizens from Davis County will be inspired to search for a "dress box spilling old pictures" to learn more about where they are from.  With pictures in hand and memories freshly awakened, you could write your own "Where I'm From" poem.
     
    Monthly Activities include:  an online monthly writing contest, entering Lois Lowry books Book Trailer Contest, Dr. Seuss Day, Davis School District Annual Read-a-thon, Literacy Night, Book discussions at Bountiful & Layton City Libraries, and an evening with Lois Lowry. 

    We would love to see you there!
     
    Davis Reads! is also trying to start a program for a Little Free Library - 

     

    This is a promotion for advancing reading in the communities.  Corporations can donate a little Library cabinet, that is open to the public in random spaces.  People can donate a book and take a book.  Davis Reads wants to supply these little libraries with Lois Lowry’s quartet series of “The Giver”.

     


    For more information, check out the website.
