South Valley Students Have Fun Learning About Those Who Protect and Serve

It was a busy week for students as South Valley School as they had fun learning a lot about the men and women who serve and protect in our communities. It was “Sheriff’s Week” at the school filled with activities involving members of the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies went into classrooms to answer questions from students about their jobs and why they got into law enforcement. Then, students were able to dine with the deputies and get to know them as friends as well.

The week ended with a big “Sheriff’s Week” parade where students were able to see squad cars and emergency vehicles, waving to those behind the wheel. They even were given the opportunity to get inside the mobile Command Center vehicle and see how lights, sirens, and radios work on squad cars.

Thanks to the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office for taking time out for South Valley students and staff. Getting to know those who serve and protect is so very valuable, something  students will remember well beyond their time at South Valley.

He is described as kindness personified, someone who can build relationships, and gets along with everyone at Majestic Elementary Arts Academy.

Join us in congratulating the Jordan School District “Teacher of the Year,” Angus Douglas. Mr. Douglas is a sixth-grade teacher at Majestic Elementary and Principal Marianne Johansen says “he might just be the best hire of my career.” She says no matter how difficult a task may be for Mr. Douglas, his selflessness knows no bounds. In the classroom he maintains the highest growth scores at Majestic Elementary and some of the highest in the entire District.

Copper Hills High Students Saving Lives with Tradition of Successful Blood Drives

Copper Hills High HOSA Students

They count on Copper Hills High School every year and students, teachers, and staff always come through. Once again, the school rallied behind an ARUP blood drive and broke an all-time record. On May 8th CHHS registered 247 donors, collecting 170 units of whole blood. That is the biggest, most successful blood drive ever at the school.

The high school blood drives play a huge part in saving lives. ARUP Blood Services says it needs at least 75 donors a day and 2,200 units of whole blood per month.

At Copper Hills one student in particular has been passionate about doing his part. Andon Richards, who is graduating this year, has donated blood at every single CHHS blood drive since his sophomore year. Andon never missed even one blood drive!

Thanks to Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) and everyone at Copper Hills High School for caring so deeply about others and saving lives by donating blood.
