It was a musical performance made possible by so many talented people and their hard work paid off. Students at Mountain Shadows Elementary School took the stage in colorful costumes and props, surrounded by a beautiful set for a performance of “Moana Jr.” The play is a musical production that follows the journey of a young girl who sets out to save her island and her people, discovering her true identity and heritage along the way.
Thanks to everyone involved in the production and congratulations to all of the talented students who had a role in the play, on stage or working behind the scenes.
It was an amazing night to remember for some students and staff at West Jordan High School. Student Body Officers wanted everyone to have the prom experience this year, so they organized a dance party which included invites for all students with special needs at the school. The SBO’s escorted their classmates to the dance by arranging to pick them up on a party bus. Then, they were treated to a delicious dinner before the dance party began. The night included fun and festive outfits, pictures, lots of smiles, dancing and just pure joy.
Thanks to everyone at West Jordan High for making the Inclusive Dance Party possible and creating high school memories to last a lifetime.

It was a carnival-like atmosphere at the Jordan Child Development Center as children, their families and staff members came together for a fun Spring Festival. It was a pre-historic themed event with dinosaurs, fishing games, picture taking, color books and a big dinosaur egg hunt.
It was a festive way to bring everyone together for activities and ring in the new spring season.
Thanks to everyone involved in the Spring Festival for making it a night to remember for children and their families.
