Supercast Episode 63: Reimagining Thanksgiving 2020 – Happy Steaksgiving!

Three students in their home kitchens | Have a Super ThanksgivingWhat will your Thanksgiving table look like this year? For some it will be the traditional table with turkey and all the trimmings. However, for others Thanksgiving 2020 will look a little different.

On this episode of the Supercast, Superintendent Anthony Godfrey talks to some students in the Prostart Culinary Program at Mountain Ridge High School. They share their ideas on how to reimagine the Thanksgiving meal, trading the traditional turkey and the number of seats at the table for something else. Listen as these talented student cooks and bakers share their culinary best.

They love learning, their teachers and staff at Eastlake Elementary School and wanted to do something to express their appreciation this Thanksgiving. So, students in Xin Luo’s 3rd grade Chinese Dual Language Immersion class practiced and performed a song to share with everyone. They are singing about gratitude; how grateful they are for being able to come to school and giving thanks to teachers and staff.

As you reflect on your own blessings this Thanksgiving, enjoy a special song of thanks from students at Eastlake Elementary School.

Herriman High School “No Cold Kids” Coat Drive is Huge Success

Picture of coats collectedSome Herriman High School business and marketing, (DECA and FBLA) students were hoping to use the skills they are learning in the classroom to fill a huge need right now – providing warm winter coats for students and families who have fallen on hard times during the pandemic.

Their hopes came true in a very big way. With the help of Scheels and the community, HHS students managed to collect more than 1,000 coats in their “No Cold Kids” coat drive. That exceeded their goal of collecting 800 coats. The coats will go to Principal’s Pantries throughout Jordan School District, sending warmth and love to students who need just a little help, especially over the cold winter months.

Thanks to these amazing Herriman High School students, Scheels and community members for caring about those in need among us. Congratulations on a very successful service project!
