Principals Get Sneak Peek Inside New Elementary Schools

Principals Touring New SchoolsWearing big smiles on their faces and hard hats on their heads, the recently appointed principals of the District’s two new elementary schools were treated to a sneak peek inside the buildings.

Kyle Hansen is principal of the new elementary school in South Jordan at 10252 S. Split Rock Drive, and Doree Strauss is principal of the new elementary school in Herriman at 5692 W. American Park Drive.

Mrs. Strauss says she loves the natural lighting throughout the school with skylights to illuminate interior classrooms as well, which she says will positively impact student learning. She believes students will also benefit from the bright colors throughout the new school designed to help guide everyone from one area to another in the building.

Kyle Hansen says he is very impressed with the collaboration areas set aside for students and teachers to work collectively as a group. Mr. Hansen says he also loves the bright color scheme in the building and the abundance of natural lighting.

Construction on both schools is on time and on budget. They will open their doors in August for the 2017-18 school year.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates.
