School is out for the summer and that means kids will be having fun with friends, staying up late, sleeping in, taking trips and often enjoying a fun but different diet. On this episode of the Supercast, we sit down with members of the Jordan School District Health and Wellness team to find out how we can keep kids on track – by following a few health and wellness tips for a happier summer with family and friends.
It was an end of the school year activity that left some staff members at Southland Elementary School super soaked from head to toe. The school’s PTO went to work and built a dunk tank for “Super Field Day” at Southland. Then, several teachers along with Principal Jackson prepared to be dunked, while the custodian dressed up as Mr. Mop Head, something the students absolutely loved. The dunk tank participants sat while students took turns throwing bean bags hoping to dump big buckets of water on them. Thanks to the Southland PTO and daring dunk tank participants like Mrs. Jackson, Mrs. Jakositz and Mr. Bench, the custodian, for helping to make “Super Field Day” so fun!
Some Southland Elementary School students received a first-hand lesson in civics and government recently when Riverton City Mayor Trent Staggs agreed to join the class virtually. Mrs. Stout, a third-grade teacher, invited the mayor to participate in a virtual question and answer session to help her students who were studying government. The students prepared questions for Mayor Staggs and he was kind enough to answer all of them. Mr. Staggs told the class about his job as Mayor and about the workings of Riverton City government.
Thank you, Mayor Staggs, for spending time with students and supporting their education.
Students at South Valley School celebrated their accomplishments with a graduation drive-through. Students received their diplomas from Principal Rita Bouillon, and School Board Member Niki George awarded them a medal. In addition, the event gave students and parents a chance to say goodbye to the faculty and staff at the school. A local DJ played tunes, and the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Department stopped by to cheer on the students as they drove by with their brightly decorated cars.
Congratulations, students, on all your accomplishments. Keep up the great work!
