It will be the experience of a lifetime for two Mountain Creek Middle School students with special needs. Jaymi Bonner, an 8th grade student who plays violin and Emma Figueroa, an 9th grade student who plays trumpet, will both be representing Utah in the Rose Bowl parade. The students were selected, along with others who have special needs, from all over the country. They all participate in a program called “United Sound.” The program focuses on relationship building and partners special needs students with peer tutors who assist and support them playing in their individual school bands.
Jaymi and Emma are busy preparing for the once in a lifetime event with their peer tutor, who will travel to the Rose Bowl and participate in the parade with the girls.
Thanks to everyone at Mountain Creek Middle School for supporting this program, especially Special Education teacher Karlee English and Music teacher Cameron Elliott.
Best of luck to Jaymi and Emma in the Rose Bowl parade.
It was an unexpected surprise for teachers throughout Jordan School District right before the holiday season. Thanks to generous donors in our community, the Jordan Education Foundation was able to award a total of $352,987 to teachers and classrooms funding 637 projects. Grants will be used to purchase STEM supplies, language immersion libraries, guided reading books, Chromebooks, flexible seating options, applied science materials, math manipulatives, listening centers, sensory items, software, and other valuable classroom tools and equipment.
The Foundation is sending a special thanks to all those who donated, including Rocky Mountain Power, KSOP Tools for Schools, Wasatch Financial, and the JEF Annual Golf Classic sponsors for their support of the Classroom Grant program.
Our thanks to the Jordan Education Foundation for all of their hard work on behalf of teachers and students in the classroom every day!

Every year the Jordan Education Foundation provides holiday gifts for teens who would otherwise go without in the Jordan School District community through an event called “Christmas for Kids.” This year the Foundation is once again working with Walmart in South Jordan to provide a holiday shopping spree for a record 500 teens in need.
In order to serve the record number of students in need this year “Christmas for Kids” is reaching out to the community for help. Event organizers still need donations for the purchase of gifts and/or adult volunteers to chaperone teens while they shop.
This is an opportunity to bring joy to students who simply need a little extra support this holiday season with the gift of things like a warm coat, hat, shoes, blankets or boots thanks to a caring community.
If you or your organization would like to donate or provide adult volunteers please visit www.jefchristmasforkids.org. You can also contact the Jordan Education Foundation directly at 801-567-8125.
