West Jordan High Student Woodworking Project Receives National Award

Sarah with bureau and awardsWest Jordan High’s Sarah Provard loves woodworking and designing unique wood creations. One of her prized works is a handcrafted, music-themed bureau she designed at home last summer and made at school over the past year with the guidance of teacher Rick Minor. The bureau won the People’s Choice Award at the Wasatch Woodworking Consortium competition this spring and now it is being recognized nationally. The project was recently accepted into the prestigious Las Vegas Freshwood Show, which alone is a big accomplishment. When the judging was complete, Sarah, who graduated this year, won first place in the Case Work category and the People’s Choice award. She also received $1750 as a cash prize and is being courted by BYU and Pittsburgh State. Congratulations, Sarah! Best of luck in the future.


Students at Foothills Elementary Ready to “Create the Magic”

Principal and assistant principal holding welcome back signEverywhere you look at Foothills Elementary School right now, there are signs suggesting this is a magical place. That’s because students, teachers and staff started out the new year with a special assembly and they were inspired by the school’s 2017-18 Disney theme, “Create the Magic.” Everyone is ready to make magic in learning during the new school year with positive attitudes and having fun while following rules in the classroom, cafeteria and on the playground. Welcome back everyone. We look forward to seeing the magic happen for students, teachers and the entire staff at Foothills Elementary this year. Best of luck!

It is back to the books and what we hope will be an exciting and successful school year for 3,533 students in five year-round elementary schools throughout Jordan School District. Best of luck to our valued teachers and staff with all the important work you do charting a course for students to achieve at the highest levels and embrace a love for learning.

Please keep safety in mind if you are driving near our year-round schools, which include Blackridge, Foothills, Fox Hollow, Jordan Ridge and South Jordan Elementary Schools. Be mindful of students walking or riding bikes and scooters to and from school. Also, use caution approaching crosswalks and while entering and exiting these schools. The safety of students is our top priority.
