It was a musical performance made possible by so many talented people and their hard work paid off. Students at Mountain Shadows Elementary School took the stage in colorful costumes and props, surrounded by a beautiful set for a performance of “Moana Jr.” The play is a musical production that follows the journey of a young girl who sets out to save her island and her people, discovering her true identity and heritage along the way.
Thanks to everyone involved in the production and congratulations to all of the talented students who had a role in the play, on stage or working behind the scenes.
March is National Women’s History Month, a time to recognize the vital role of women in American history.
On this episode of the Supercast, we find out how schools are celebrating, and we sit down with a strong woman in our school community making history in her own right. Meet Dawn Ramsey, President of the Jordan Education Foundation and the first female mayor of South Jordan City.
But first, we stop by West Jordan Middle School where Martha Hughes Cannon, the first female State Senator in the United States, is celebrated on morning announcements.
It was an amazing night to remember for some students and staff at West Jordan High School. Student Body Officers wanted everyone to have the prom experience this year, so they organized a dance party which included invites for all students with special needs at the school. The SBO’s escorted their classmates to the dance by arranging to pick them up on a party bus. Then, they were treated to a delicious dinner before the dance party began. The night included fun and festive outfits, pictures, lots of smiles, dancing and just pure joy.
Thanks to everyone at West Jordan High for making the Inclusive Dance Party possible and creating high school memories to last a lifetime.
She is the principal of the fast-growing Ridge View Elementary School in Herriman and Meredith Doleac was recently surprised in a big way by her family, friends, students, staff, superintendent Godfrey and the Jordan Education Foundation. Ms. Doleac was named the 2023 “Outstanding Principal of the Year,” by the foundation.
She was selected, in part, for being an authentic leader for students, putting them at the center of every decision and advocating for what is in their best interest. Ms. Doleac takes time to listen, discuss, and validate in a calm and positive way with anyone she encounters. Another quality that many admire about Ms. Doleac, is that she is a natural mentor working collaboratively with a respect for her colleagues.
Congratulations, Principal Doleac! Keep up the great work helping to make students succeed each and every day.
Members of the Jordan Education Foundation, along with District administrators, Superintendent Godfrey and Board members hit the road again this week visiting school after school surprising teachers with the JEF “Educator of the Year” awards.
This week they made 33 stops, and before they are finished they will visit every single school in the District surprising teachers with the coveted award.
Teachers who are recognized have a commitment and dedication to students and education, making a difference in young lives every day. We are so proud of the work carried out in our classrooms and thankful to our amazing educators.
Congratulations to the second round of 33 winners who received their awards this week. Stay tuned, more to come.
