Jordan District Elementary Math Tournament

We're excited to share that some of our 5th grade and 6th grade students recently participated in the Jordan District Elementary Math Tournament held at Daybreak Elementary. This event, known for its rigorous problems that demand critical thinking and advanced math skills, included both individual and team competitions as well as lots of fun.

Our students had the opportunity to participate in this culminating activity after engaging during the year in the Math Olympiad program at Jordan Ridge, a voluntary initiative that enriches mathematical thinking and learning during the school day. Their dedication and hard work in preparation for the tournament were truly commendable. The experience enhanced problem-solving abilities, mathematical thinking, team work, and sportsmanship in our students, laying a strong foundation for future academic and personal growth. We are so proud of how these students rose to the challenge and represented the Jordan Ridge name.

We encourage our current 4th and 5th graders to consider joining the Math Olympiad program next year. It's a fantastic opportunity to dive deeper into the world of mathematics, challenge oneself, and maybe even represent our school in next year's tournament.

Library Notice

We are quickly approaching the end of the year in the library and we wanted to let everyone know some important dates. The last week to check out books is April 29th. Starting the week of May 6th we will need all the books returned so that we can start to inventory them. You do not need to wait for your library day to return books as we will gladly accept them on any day. On May 13th, we will start sending out fine notices for any books that your student still has out (or from books that have been returned damaged), so please help them return or find any missing books. Thank you for a great year.


FREE Parent Coaching!

We mentioned in a prior Skylert about a wonderful resource called parentguidance.org that offers courses and other resources to help parents navigate challenging situations involving their children. We are so excited to announce that our district has partnered with this group to offer FREE parent coaching for families in our district! Take a look at the flier below for more information.

6th grade vs. Teachers Volleyball Game

This first school spotlight soared straight from the volleyball court, where our spirited 6th graders faced off against the teachers in our long-standing tradition of the annual volleyball game! This much-anticipated event not only showcases the skills and sportsmanship of our students but also the camaraderie and enthusiasm of our faculty.

A huge shout-out goes to Mr. Mosier, our incredible PE teacher, who not only taught our 6th graders the ins and outs of volleyball but also played a pivotal role in facilitating this exhilarating game. Under his guidance, our students have spiked, served, and set their way into this friendly yet competitive match, proving that Eagles can truly soar on and off the field.

The game was a fantastic display of teamwork, effort, and Eagle spirit, leaving everyone eagerly awaiting next year's rematch. Thank you, Mr. Mosier, for continuing to inspire our students and for keeping this cherished tradition alive and well at Jordan Ridge!

Standard Response Protocol Information

Due to new state law (53G-8-803), Utah has adopted the Standard Response Protocols (SRP).  The SRP provides schools across the state with enhanced response options that increase safety and security for students and staff.  These tools provide clear and consistent language shared by every school and school district in Utah as well as our first responder partners.  As an integral part of the Jordan Ridge community we want to take this opportunity to share this information with you.

Each month students will participate in a different SRP drill to help them learn and understand how and why each safety response protocol is used. We encourage you to have discussions with your student(s) about these drills at home.

Click here to find a handout explaining each Standard Response Protocol Included with this communication.  Spanish

For additional information please visit https://schoolsafety.jordandistrict.org/  or https://iloveuguys.org/The-Standard-Response-Protocol.html

Safety Reminder

Students crossing at 9800 S and 2700 W: Our crossing guards have made us aware that even with repeated reminders, our students continue to push too close to the curb while waiting to cross. Please talk to your child about the importance of staying back away from the curb while waiting to cross. We want to ensure that students don’t accidentally fall into traffic and get injured.

Student Sales at School

Just a reminder that students are not allowed to sell items or take orders for purchase on school property. In addition, students should not bring money to school to purchase items from other students. We encourage students to engage in entrepreneurial activities, but require that these activities take place off of school grounds.

 

Maturation Presentation

The maturation program is available in an online format for both 4th and 5th graders. A letter was sent home with each student in 4th and 5th grade with instructions on how to access the presentation. You can also access the letter here. If you would like your child to receive a hygiene kit from the school, please watch the presentation with your child and sign the permission slip (at the bottom of the letter).

 

Reminder: Register for Kindergarten ASAP!

It is time to start registering for Kindergarten! You can find links to start the registration process and lots of other helpful information on the school website:

Go to: jordanridge.jordandistrict.org

Click on: Parents and Students

Select: Kindergarten Registration

Please tell your neighbors who have Kindergarten-aged children so they can get their child registered.

Cell Phone and SmartWatch Reminder

Please help us remind students to keep cell phones in their backpack. Smart watches can also pose a distraction for students and their classmates, so we encourage these to be kept in the backpack as well.

If you need to talk to or check out your child, please call the main office. Please refrain from arranging checkouts with students over their personal devices as this can pose a safety risk.

Traffic Safety Reminders

Afternoon kindergarten drop-off in west parking lot: If you drop off your child for afternoon Kindergarten on the west side, please do not park (and sit/leave vehicle) along the curb or in the passing lane. This causes a safety concern, as cars become backed up onto the city street. Please also remember to only allow students to exit at the curb and not in the passing lane. If you would like to stay with your child at the Kindergarten playground until the bell rings, please park in the front parking lot.

Red zones at church: The curb is painted red (no parking) near the far East access at the church parking lot. These red/no parking zones help provide visibility for cars exiting the parking lot. Please remember not to park in these red zones.

Student pick-up procedures: If you park along the curb in the drop-off lane to wait for your child, please pull up along the curb to allow more cars to enter the parking lot. Congestion on the city road can pose a safety concern for our patrons, so please help reduce this congestion by pulling up when space is available.

Student drop-off: Please remember to only drop off students in the yellow drop off zone! Students should remain in the vehicle until the vehicle enters the yellow drop off zone. Please also never let a student exit the vehicle in the passing lane.

Bike Rack Reminders

The bike rack is locked up during the school day. If you need to check out your child and they have a bike, please let the office know so they can be prepared to walk with your child to unlock the bike rack so they can retrieve their bike.

Also, remember that the bike rack is unlocked overnight, so please do not leave bikes at the school. The possibility they will be stolen overnight is high.

Progress Reports in Skyward

As you may know, elementary schools now enter grades quarterly. Teachers are not required to send home progress reports at each quarter, but you can access them in Skyward. They are usually available for families to view about two weeks after the end of the quarter. Quarter 2 ends on January 12th. You can also ask your child’s teacher to send home a hard copy of the progress report. Remember that reports for the first three quarters are considered progress reports and show your child’s progress toward end of grade-level mastery. Only the report for the final quarter is considered a report card.
