Traditional Elementary and Middle Schools Start & Everybody’s Back!

IMG_5495With the opening of traditional elementary and middle schools, all students are now back in class in Jordan School District for what we hope will be a successful year. Heartland and Majestic Elementary schools are participating in an exciting new “Turnaround School” project with an intense focus on accountability and success. These schools are decorated with reminders that every child can achieve and strive for higher education at colleges anywhere in the country. Teachers in the schools are shining examples that if you work hard, you will find success. Welcome back everyone, let’s make 2014–15 a school year to remember.

Superintendent, Area Administrators Participate in Ice Bucket Charity Challenge

photo(31)It began with principals and teachers taking the plunge in the Ice Bucket Charity Challenge to benefit ALS research. That led to Jordan School District Superintendent, Dr. Patrice Johnson and area administrators being nominated to participate. They did so in style dressed in suits and ties as students and other school leaders dumped buckets of ice water on them. We are very proud of Superintendent Johnson, Dr. Anthony Godfrey, Teri Timpson, Mike Anderson and Brad Sorensen for stepping up to help in the fight against ALS.

Our traditional elementary and middle schools are ready for the arrival of students, faculty and staff tomorrow. Year-round schools have been alive with learning and other fun educational activities since they started in July.

Fun Fact Friday: Bus Ads Bring in District Dollars, Promote School Pride

IMG_5488If you see a Jordan District school bus driving by, you might want to take a closer look because this year you may recognize some familiar faces on the side of the bus. That’s because the District is the first in the state to use school buses to advertise all the great things students are doing and achieving in our elementary and secondary schools. Self-promotion bus ads will run throughout the year and they are a great way to share good news on buses that travel throughout the District. In addition, Jordan District is the first in the state to do in-house commercial bus advertising. This saves thousands of dollars in design fees and all profits stay in the District rather than going to a third party. It also provides better customer service to clients and allows us to offer opportunities in affordable advertising for locally grown businesses in the cities that Jordan School District serves. At the end of the day, bus advertising is working to support our students and the community.
