It was a special night filled with music and much community pride as Golden Fields Elementary School was official dedicated. Students debuted the school song called “Our Golden Fields,” and then talked about all the things they really like about their new school. Board of Education member, Bryce Dunford gave the official remarks, in part saying he dedicated the school as a safe place, a home away from home for students. He said he hopes the building will be the birthplace of dreams, of hopes, of lofty aspirations and a place where students can set their sights as high as they can dream. Mr. Dunford also said he hopes that every teacher walks away from the building each and every day knowing they made a difference in the world.
Congratulations to everyone involved in this wonderful dedication. Enjoy a photo gallery on our Facebook page.
Take the time to say thank you to these dedicated, hard working employees.
Here is our tribute to Education Support Professionals.
She is described as the kind of teacher who always goes above and beyond in her work. That’s just one reason why West Hills Middle School geography teacher, Janet Sanders, received a surprise visit from KSL Newsradio. The radio news team showed up to recognize Ms. Sanders as part of their ‘Teacher Feature” program which honors educators who make a difference in the lives of students and in their community. West Hills Middle Principal Stacy Evans says Janet Sanders is very deserving of the recognition because she is a top-notch teacher who engages students and makes learning fun. Ms. Sanders also supports other educators as a teacher coach.
Congratulations to Janet Sanders! Thank you for your outstanding work educating young people and making a difference in their lives every single day.
When a group of school Ambassadors at Heartland Elementary decided they wanted to do something to honor service men and women for Veterans Day, they came up with a service project called “Serving Those Who Serve U.S. (Everyday Heroes).”
Then the Ambassadors invited local veterans, police officers, firefighters and EMT’s to Heartland for a very special breakfast. The student Ambassadors served the men and women a delicious breakfast and showed them a PowerPoint presentation on how students believe they make a difference every day in our communities and our country. After that, everyone was given a tour of the school and the honored guests received homemade cards and were saluted for their service.
Great job, Heartland Ambassadors, for taking the time to honor the people who protect and serve and sacrifice their lives for our safety and freedoms.

Veterans Day is a special time to stop and offer gratitude to the men and women who have sacrificed so much for the many freedoms we enjoy.
Here is a musical tribute to veterans in all branches of the military from Jordan School District students, teachers and staff.
Thank you for your service.
