We have a few updates and announcements for you:

Book Fair Volunteers Needed!

Next week is our Scholastic Book Fair, and we are in desperate need of volunteers to make it happen. We still need a minimum of two volunteers for the following shifts:

Wednesday February 21st from 7:30-9:30 am

Wednesday February 21st from 4:00-6:00 pm

Thursday February 22nd from 7:30-9:30 am

Thursday February 22nd from 11:00 am-1:00 pm

Thursday February 22nd from 1:30-3:30 pm

Thursday February 22nd from 3:30-5:30 pm

Thursday February 22nd from 5:30-7:30 pm

Volunteers will receive a complimentary book (valued up to $15) for each shift. You can sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0445A5A92DA2F49-47579725-book#/

The book fair is not a fundraiser, but Scholastic gives back 50% of the proceeds in Scholastic dollars which the teachers are able to use to build their classroom libraries, buy books or prizes for their students, and purchase other classroom supplies. This year our teachers received over $7000 in Scholastic dollars from the fall book fair that they have used for their classrooms and students.

Let’s help earn more Scholastic dollars for our teachers and students. Thank you in advance for donating your time!

Kindness Week Candy Gram Volunteers Needed!

February 26-March 1

As part of kindness week, our student leadership council will be facilitating candy grams! Students will be able to purchase a candy bar and fill out a note to be delivered to another student at the school. We need volunteers to help collect money before school and during lunch time. The shifts will be:

Before school: 8:40-8:55 AM

Lunch: 11:10-12:45 PM

If you are able to help with any of these shifts sometime from February 26-March 1, please email Mrs. McIntyre at christine.mcintyre@jordandistrict.org.

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

Jordan Education Foundation Challenge Run

JEF is an organization of business and community partners who work together to raise money and network resources for Jordan School District. They sponsor the Challenge Run every year as a way to raise money for teacher grants. Teachers at our school apply for these grants every year. This year our teachers received over $11,000 in grant money for their classrooms! We would love your support of this event!

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them on their journey to becoming lifelong readers. AND—as always—every purchase at the fair benefits our school.

The book fair will be held in the library Wednesday, February 21st from 8-9 a.m. and 4-7:30 p.m. and Thursday, February 22nd from 8-9 a.m. and 1:30-5:30 p.m. The Book Fair will also be open to students during their lunch recess. Students will need a pass signed by their parent to attend the book fair during their lunch recess.

If your student plans to shop the book fair during lunch recess, a good alternative to cash is Scholastic’s eWallet—your child’s digital payment account. Before the Fair, you can set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases. Anyone can contribute! Share your child’s eWallet so friends and family can add funds and give your kids more books to enjoy. Any funds unspent will be transferred to a scholastic gift certificate that can be used to shop online after the fair and can be transferred back to an eWallet for future book fairs.

If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Book Fair online. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Every online purchase will also benefit our school.

Book Fair Shopping Pass

In an effort to help prevent theft and prevent students spending money that has not been authorized by parents, students will be required to present a shopping pass to enter the book fair during lunch time. Please click here to download and print a pass. Students who try to enter without a pass at lunch time will be given one to take home to have signed.

 

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).

Click on: Parents and Students

Select: Kindergarten Registration

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

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.

Choir Shirts

If you would like to order a choir shirt (they are the same ones we bought earlier this year). The cost is $8.00.

In order to save on paper, we will be ordering electronically, Please fill out THIS FORM for your child/children (Multiple times if you need more than one shirt) and send a check to Jordan Ridge with choir t-shirt in the memo, or cash if you prefer (Just be sure your child’s name is included with the cash). The money can be taken to the front office, Miss Fiso, or Mrs. Epperson.

**Checks should be made out to Jordan Ridge Elementary.

Money and orders should be in by JANUARY 18th!!! (If you fill out the order form and we don't have money from you by the 18th, you will receive an email).
