2012 Bond

In June of 2012, Weber County voters approved a $65 million bond to build four new schools and add additions to two existing schools. The bond, which did not increase the property tax rate, passed with 58.17% of voters voting in favor of it.  

The new schools replaced outdated facilities that no longer met seismic code. The older buildings lacked modern features such as air conditioning and were expensive to maintain. The new schools were also built to handle a greater number of students, thus eliminating the need for portable classrooms at many of the sites.

The projects funded by the bond were:

Rocky Mountain Jr. High.

A 10-classroom addition was added to the back of the building which increased the permanent capacity of the school. The project cost about $5 million and was completed in 2014.

Wahlquist Junior High.

The original school was built in 1942 during WWII. A new school was built at 2656 N. 2400 W. in Farr West City, and the old building was torn down. The project cost about $18 million and the school opened in 2015.

North Park Elementary.

Originally built in 1959, the old building was torn down and a new school was built onsite. The project cost approximately $10 million. The school, which opened in 2014, is located at 4046 S. 2175 W. in Roy City.

West Weber Elementary.

Originally built in 1928, the old school was torn down and a new one was built onsite. The project cost approximately $10 million to complete. The school, which opened in 2015, is located at 4178 W. 900 S. in West Weber.

Burch Creek Elementary.

The new school combined Club Heights Elementary (built in 1942) and MarLon Hills Elementary (built in 1960) into one. The $10 million facility, which opened in 2016, is located at 4300 Madison on the site of the old South Ogden Jr. High in South Ogden City.

A new addition, which included a full-size gymnasium was added onto the south side of the school. Besides a new gym, renovations were also made to the cafeteria and stage. The project cost was approximately $2 million and was completed in 2016.

Math Fluency Practice Ideas

Kindergarteners- going into 1st Grade

Goals:  Fluently add and subtract within 5, add and subtract within 10, count as many as 20 “items”, count to 100 by 1’s & 10’s

  • Give child anything to count: cheerios, Barbie shoes, lego’s,…; “show me 6 Skittles” “show me 9 cheerios”
  • Roll a dice- child counts and then recognizes how many dots are showing on the dice
  • Roll a dice- child counts the number and then lays out that many items
  • War with cards: play with a partner- each person turns over a card- whoever has the greater number wins, tomorrow it might be whoever has the smaller number wins
  • War with dice: roll a dice- larger number wins- or smaller wins. “5 is greater than 1” etc.  More advanced students can roll 2 dice and add them- and play War with the sums.
  • Dominos- practice counting the dots

Math Fluency Practice Ideas

1st Graders- going into 2nd Grade

Goals:  Fluently add and subtract within 20, count to 120 (starting at any number)

  • Roll a dice- child counts the number and then lays out that many items
  • War with cards: play with a partner- each person turns over a card- whoever has the greater number wins, tomorrow it might be whoever has the smaller number wins
  • War with dice: roll and add 2 dice- larger number wins- or smaller wins. “13 is greater than 9” etc.  More advanced students roll 3 or more dice and add them- and play War with the sums.
  • Dominos- practice adding the dots
  • Roll a dice, add 10 to the roll (or whatever you wish to practice)
  • Roll a dice, double whatever you roll
  • Roll 2 dice- add the 2 together, or subtract the 2
  • Play “Find another Name” ---Roll the dice and students give partners (or break aparts) to get that number e. I roll a 5, I give partners such as 3 + 2, my partner gives a different combination such as 4 +1. More advanced students could roll 2 dice and then give partners for the sum.  (I roll 4 and 5:  My sum is 9.  I say 6 +3,  my partner says 8 +1)
  • Practice counting starting at random numbers under 100.
  • The number is 10 (or 20, or 15) - Write down 10 different number sentences that equal the target number. Practice with picture representations. Do it with many different numbers.  Encourage different solutions.
  • Mystery number: Think of a number and describe it. I’m thinking of a number greater then- but less then, it’s odd, . . .

Math Fluency Practice Ideas

2nd Graders- going into 3rd Grade

Goals:  Fluently add and subtract within 20, add and subtract within 100, mentally add or subtract 10 or 100 to a given number, count by 5’s, 10’s, and 100’s.

  • Roll a dice, add 10 or random number to whatever they roll
  • Roll a dice, double (or triple) whatever you roll
  • Roll a dice, double + 1, or 2 or 3. Or triple and add 1.
  • Roll 2 dice- add the 2 together, or subtract the 2 (Or roll more dice and add them together)
  • Roll a dice and count by 2’s, 3’s, 4’s, 5’s – the number of times of the dice roll.
  • Roll a dice (or 2-4 and add) tell how many more to get to the benchmark of number of 10, then 20, then 30, etc.
  • Play “Find another Name” --Roll 2, 3, or 4 dice and add to get sum. Students give partners (or break aparts) to get that number i.e. I roll a 5, 3 and 4. My sum is 12.  I give partners such as 9 + 3, my partner gives a different combination such as 6 + 6.
  • Roll 2 dice give all 4 fact family problems (I give 2 addition, partner gives 2 subtraction than switch places and partner rolls and gives 2 addition)
  • Practice Count by’s: 2,4, 6, 8. . . or 5,10,15,. . .etc.
  • Play War with either cards or dice – Roll 2 dice (or draw 2 cards) and add. Decide who wins that day, greater or less- children must justify their answer, 13 is greater than 9.
