Thank You Tide Dry Cleaners for Showing How Much You Care

Picture of team inside Tide Dry CleanersWhen the Principal’s Pantry at West Jordan High School needed someone to dry clean dozens of donated coats and prom dresses so that students could use the gently used clothing, a community partner pitched in to help. Working with the Jordan Education Foundation and Robyn Luke, Tide Dry Cleaners in South Jordan volunteered to take the coats and dresses and dry clean them so the clothing can be offered to any student in need this school year.

We appreciate community partners like Tide Cleaners for caring about education and the students we serve. Thank you. The clean coats and dresses will be put to good use!

Color Daybreak with Kindness This School Year!

Picture of school staff
The first day of school was full of color at Daybreak Elementary as students arrived to a big balloon arch.  Administrators and staff lined the sidewalk cheering them on as they made their way to the playground.

The school mascot, Bubbles, was on hand to make sure all students were feeling the excitement of the first day. Parents were thrilled to get pictures with the beloved mascot too!

Teachers greeted students at the playground, where balloons again marked where everyone was supposed to line up. Teachers wore their colorful shirts with the school’s theme reminding everyone to Color Daybreak with Kindness!

Way to go Daybreak Elementary School! Have a fun, kind and successful school year.
