Copper Hills High Teacher to Appear on NBC Nightly News

Copper Hills teacher Rickee Stewart is interviewed by NBC News reporter Joe FryerIt was a real-life lesson in TV news journalism for some students at Copper Hills High School. An NBC News crew and reporter stopped by the school to interview teacher Rickee Stewart. Ms. Stewart is getting married soon, but rather than requesting wedding gifts for herself, she asked that her guests give items for homeless teens and students in need at Copper Hills. The response from the community has been overwhelming, attracting the attention of local and national news media.

NBC News reporter Joe Fryer’s story about Rickee and what started as her wedding registry service project at Copper Hills High is expected to air on NBC Nightly News in the coming days.

Big KSL-TV High 5 Surprise for District Bus Drivers!

Bus driver gets a HIgh 5 from studentsIt was just an ordinary day for several Jordan School District bus drivers until KSL-TV showed up at Copper Canyon Elementary School.

As the drivers were dropping students off to start the day, they were approached by KSL-TV’s Caitlin Burchill who surprised them with a High 5 award for all they do in keeping students safe transporting them to and from school each day.

Bus drivers Ricardo Escobar, Wendy Ellsworth and Mindy Stanford were each rewarded for their hard work and dedication to children with a Café Rio gift card from KSL-TV.

Congratulations to these valued employees and all District bus drivers for making a difference in the lives of children and young people throughout the District.

Making a Difference

Picture of administrators with hygeine kitsThe theme of this year’s summer Administrative Leadership Conference was “Making a Difference.” With that in mind, hundreds of District administrators and administrative assistants, pitched in to make a difference in the lives of students who need a little help with some of the basic necessities in life. The administrators rallied and in a matter of just two hours managed to put together 500 personal hygiene kits, which will be available for students who need them at every school in the District. The kits included things like toothbrushes, toothpaste, body wash, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner and hairbrushes. Thank you administrators for making a difference in the lives of students every day, in their education and beyond. In addition, we are grateful to our friends at CarMax for pitching in and helping with this project. Enjoy a photo gallery on our Facebook page.
