Cool Kids Having Fun in Summer Resilience Program

Student Rock ClimbingThey were climbing to new heights in a summer program created to help students build confidence going into a new school year. More than 100 Jordan School District middle school students participated in a Summer Resilience Program organized by Pivot Adventure. During the 4-week course, cool kids get to have fun outside as they enjoy new adventure activities like rock climbing, building friendships and learning to problem-solve. The goal is for students to walk away with new coping skills when they encounter stressful situations during the school year and beyond.

Congratulations to the amazing students who participated and for the teamwork demonstrated over the course of the summer program. We look forward to seeing you all soon.

JSD School Leaders Find Inspiration at UEN’s 2022 Leading Schools Summit

Picture of PrincipalsThey say the best leaders are learners. That’s why a number of Jordan School District principals and school leaders joined others from across the State for the UEN Leading Schools Summit. They all came together for several days of collaboration and inspiration. It was a face to face experience where principals were able to share challenges they are experiencing in schools and then work together on ideas to tackle and overcome those challenges.

It was an opportunity to connect with other principals and gain support of mentors as we prepare for a successful new school year.

We are proud of our principals and other school leaders, always looking for ways to grow and participate in the learning process even over the summer months!
