A Welcome Back Message from Superintendent Johnson

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year to all of you who have had bright, shiny, eager faces in front of you today! Here’s hoping that everyone enjoyed a relaxing summer break in the company of friends and family. I am so excited about the start of this school year! We have wonderful opportunities ahead to make a difference in the lives of “Every Child, Every Day.” Achieving our goals will take a commitment to continuous learning on the part of talented and motivated staff, informed parents and a community that is involved and values education. I am committed to making sure our students receive the best possible education based on our knowledge of their learning, where to take them next and how to get them there!

Student achievement remains our highest priority as we continue to increase our students’ growth in their learning through meaningful and honest collaboration with colleagues and our students. Together we can make this the best school year yet by making sure our children are in our classrooms, keeping focused on their learning and celebrating successes along the way! When our children succeed, we all succeed because of the contributions young minds can make to our society and the communities in which we live

I am looking forward to seeing you in your schools, and wishing you a year filled with happiness, learning and fulfillment.

Welcome Back Year-Round Students and Staff!

DSCN0935It’s back to the books today for thousands of students and staff in year-round schools throughout the Jordan School District. This is a time of excitement and expectations for a successful school year. It is also a time to remind everyone to please be safe traveling in and around our schools. Use extra caution at school crosswalks and using drop-off and pick-up lanes at school. Reduce speed in school zones and remind children to pay close attention to crossing guards and use crosswalks when crossing the street.

If we all work together, we can accomplish our number one goal of keeping children safe and having a great and productive school year.

JSD All High School BandThey represent competing high schools in the District, but about 200 band students will come together as one really big marching band for the Days of ‘47 Parade. In fact, the combined high school marching band will be the largest in the Children’s Parade on Saturday and the Days of ‘47 parade on Monday.

On Friday morning, the students had their last rehearsal marching through neighborhoods in West Jordan near Copper Hills High School. Families and residents were surprised to see the talented musicians in person, marching up and down the streets

Please show your support to the Jordan School District combined high school marching band as these young musicians make us all proud this holiday weekend. Good luck!
