Board Approves Boundary Change Impacting Ethel Boyes and Temple View

The Idaho Falls Board of Trustees last night approved a boundary change that will impact Temple View and Ethel Boyes elementary schools. The boundary change will benefit our students by relieving pressure on the aged Temple View Elementary School, and better utilizing the new Ethel Boyes school building. The Raymond and Airport neighborhoods currently zoned for Temple View will now be zoned for Ethel Boyes. Questions? Send them to us.

STEAMing through the school year!!

The Family Engagement Team has started a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) club at Ethel Boyes this year. So far, we've had 86 students sign up to extend their learning through STEAM club activities!! The club meets monthly in the cafeteria one Thursday a month before school. See below for our schedule of STEAM activities.

If you're interested in joining, please contact the front desk or your student's teacher to get a permission slip before coming. We look forward to seeing you there!!

New ISAT Assessment Resources Webpage Available for Parents

Idaho parents can learn more about state tests and their child’s performance using a new interactive website available from the Idaho State Department of Education. The SDE, working with the state’s testing company, developed new reports for parents and a new website for parents to dig deeper into what their child’s results mean. The new resource webpage is available at http://testscoreguide.org/id/ . Questions about this new resource may be directed to Karlynn Laraway at klaraway@sde.idaho.gov.
