It was not a typical summer of rest and relaxation for some middle school students in Jordan School District. That’s because they were immersed in abstract reasoning, problem-solving, computer science, statistics, engineering and mind-challenging math equations. It was part of something called the Prefreshman Engineering Program (PREP), which is an academically rigorous mathematics-based summer enrichment program. The last day of PREP culminated with students launching their own home-made rockets they designed using engineering skills.
The PREP program runs for six weeks over the summer, with students dedicated to 4-hours of interactive lessons each day. It is aimed at introducing teens to careers and opportunities in STEM-related fields. As part of PREP, students have the opportunity to attend STEM classes at Salt Lake Community College half days in their junior and senior years in high school.
Congratulations on a successful summer school. We hope you had a blast learning!
School is officially out for the summer for all students in Jordan School District now as South Jordan Elementary closed the book on their last year-round calendar. We are proud of the many accomplishments you achieved this year and applaud students, teachers and staff who helped to make the year a success.
Have a safe, happy summer and 4th of July holiday everyone!
It was two years in the making and they were persistent in not letting the pandemic get in their way. After rehearsing, singing and practicing lines for months via Zoom, students at South Jordan Elementary School were finally able to take the stage in an amazing performance of the musical Mary Poppins. The main cast characters were double cast to give more students an opportunity to be part of the play, which involved 62 participants.
We applaud everyone who worked so hard to make the musical happen, giving students a wonderful opportunity to show off their many talents. A special thank you to the musical team staff including Diane Witt-Roper, Scott Knight and Alan LaFleue.
Congratulations to everyone on your magical production of Mary Poppins!
