Jordan Hills Elementary
We would like to give a big shout out to our PTA for an AMAZING Fun Run! We all had a great time with the car show, taking pictures with super heroes, and a live band! Thanks to all the families who came out to support our school and thanks to all the volunteers who spent so much time making it a great experience. Also, our “no-fuss fundraiser” has been a huge success. Thanks to everyone who has donated to PTA this year.
Fall is officially here, and with it comes cooler weather and occasional storms. Here are some helpful tips to remember as we approach cooler weather at school:
- Please write your student’s name in their jacket or coat, gloves, and hats. We always have lots of winter wear articles in our lost and found that end up unclaimed. If we have names written in items, we can return them to their owners.
- Dress in layers. It is often chilly in the morning, but by afternoon the weather is quite warm. Layers of clothing can help students feel comfortable in any type of weather.
- With fall and winter we also have more students who are absent from school due to illness. Hand washing is our first line of defense against sickness. We want to remind students to wash their hands often and to use soap and water, especially after visiting the restrooms.
We would like to take a moment to celebrate our new drama program. This year we received funding from the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Grant to bring more of the arts into our school. We decided it would benefit our students to have a drama program. Our drama teacher is Amberly Plourde and she is so talented! Every student in our school has the opportunity to attend a drama class every other week. The students have a great time and learn so much by incorporating the arts into their day.
Thank you for all you do to help our students succeed. We realize that students learn best when schools and homes can be partners in education. We love getting feedback from parents and families and we love having families involved in school.
Thanks for all you do!
