FUN FACT FRIDAY: Generous Donation of Brand New Shoes Making Big Difference

Picture of donated shoesSome students in Jordan School District will have one less thing to worry about as the colder weather sets in thanks to the kindness and compassion of Calvary Chapel Salt Lake. After learning there was a need for shoes in some of our middle and high school Principal’s Pantries, Calvary generously donated 500 pairs of brand new Kuru shoes for JSD students in need. The donation, worth thousands of dollars, will go a long way for students worried about not having proper shoes to get through the fall and winter seasons.

Thank you to everyone at Calvary Chapel for their kindness and helping to meet the needs of students so they can concentrate on learning in our schools.

The 4th, 5th and 6th graders have been invited to perform the National Anthem at the Utah Jazz Game at Vivint Smart Home Arena. The students, under the musical direction of teacher Scott Knight, will perform the National Anthem a capella. It is a performance that will honor America and the men and women who serve or have served our country.
