Congratulations to some very hard-working and accomplished students at West Hills and West Jordan Middle Schools. Eighth graders from both schools competed in the State “We the People” competition and West Hills Middle School won first place, West Jordan Middle School took second place!
‘We the People’ spotlights Constitutional history, law and civics. The event combines knowledge of the Constitution, while defending their beliefs, rights and roles as U.S. citizens.
We are very proud of these talented students and their teachers Carina Whiteside (West Hills Middle), William Shields and Alexia May (West Jordan Middle).
Happy Valentine’s Day from Jordan School District! Enjoy this video of students from Monte Vista Elementary School singing to residents of the Pheasant Run Alzheimer’s Special Care Center.
This Valentine’s Day will be one to remember for students at Herriman High School thanks to some members of the school’s cross-country team with very big hearts. The team decided they didn’t want anyone feeling left out on Valentine’s Day, so they went to work raising money to buy roses – enough for every girl at Herriman High. In fact, they had enough roses that the team decided to share them, surprising students at Riverton High School as well. The cross country team hopes it will instill in everyone the idea that caring about others is important every single day.
It was a week filled with acts of kindness and fun, inspiring activities. The Jr. Hope Squad at Copper Canyon Elementary School sponsored “Hope Week,” and encouraged everyone to participate. Some of the “Hope Week” activities included putting notes of kindness on every student’s desk and in the hallways, making a Kindness Tree with paper leaves and hearts that had special messages on them and decorating classroom doors.
Congratulations to students and staff at Copper Canyon Elementary for being great role-models and inspiring everyone to be kind.
