West Hills Middle Students Pledge to Spread Kindness

Be The Change pledgeThere are more small acts of kindness going on in classrooms, in the halls and inside the lunchroom at West Hills Middle School this year. Students say it is, in part, due to a campaign called ‘Be The Change,’ that really is changing the culture and climate at school. More than 800 students have signed the pledge to ‘Be The Change,’ and they are committed to offering friendship to students who feel left out or alone. They also pledge to respect everyone despite differences and never participate in bullying behavior. Principal Stacy Evans says even teachers, administrators and staff feel more kindness coming their way and there have been fewer disciplinary actions at the school this year.

We applaud West Hills Middle School for spreading kindness and pledging to do away with bullying behavior by pledging to ‘Be The Change.’

Full Speed Ahead On Construction of New Schools

Construction is moving ahead and on schedule for three new schools in the District and there are changes almost daily thanks to significant progress being made. The new schools are part of six schools promised in the voter-approved 2016 bond.

If you haven’t been by to see the rebuild of West Jordan Middle, the new high school in Herriman or the middle school in South Jordan – we invite you to take a visual tour. Here is our updated photo gallery of the new schools. Enjoy!
