Please Support Backman Elementary School

Backman Elementary is full of smart, energetic, diverse students ready to change the world! We believe in connection and achievement. Connection to our students, our community and to each other. We connect families and students to much needed resources such as food, medical services, mental health support, clothing, and evening classes. We work hard to raise student achievement through viable curriculum, rigorous access to core standards and high quality teaching. Each week, all students in our school attend science (twice), dance, library, keyboarding, PE, and music (for upper grades). This allows time for teachers to collaborate, work with instructional coaches, plan lessons, and prepare for student learning. We incorporate restorative practices in our school through a strong Restorative Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (RPBIS) system, bi-monthly life skills classes, community and restorative circles and strong relationships.

The ski school will serve students from Backman Elementary. Students will join a five week ski program at Snowbird through the Northwest Recreational Center on Friday afternoons. Your donation to the ski school will help fund equipment, busing, lift tickets, snacks and ski school lessons.

Backman Elementary is literally building bridges to our community through our Bridge to Backman Project. In 2014, we identified the need for a bridge across the Jordan River (west of our school) to give quicker, safer access to our school for our students. This began as a strategy to increase attendance and now has the potential to transform our community. Not only will we build a bridge, but we will also develop an adjacent abandoned lot into a beautiful, useful space for our school, our families, and the Rose Park and Fairpark communities. Funds were allocated for this project through community based Capital Improvement Funds from the Salt Lake City Council in October 2017! Join in and stay tuned; good things are happening at Backman!

We hope you will consider donating to Backman Elementary School through the Salt Lake Education Foundation and help make a student's future brighter. 100% of your donation goes toward the initiative of your choice.

Please call (801) 578-8258 or email cultivating.resources@saltlakeeducationfoundation.org with any questions.

Thank you!
