Teacher Favorite Things

Principal's Corner

As I type this, snow is falling outside and my mind is dreaming of Spring.  I do enjoy winter, and we definitely need the moisture, yet green grass, flowers, and warm weather sure sound fantastic right now.
It's hard for me to fathom we are halfway through the school year already.  This year has been wonderful.  Our SJE musical Annie was phenomenal.  Huge shout out to everyone involved.  Next year we will be performing Shrek Jr. and we're super excited about that!  We just competed our can food drive and once again our South Jordan Elementary community came through and donated over 3000 lbs. of food for our local food bank.
Our Spelling Bee finals will be March 23rd @ 6:00pm.  Keep practicing those words!
There will be No School March 27-31st as we have our Grade Transmittal Day and Spring Break.
Thank you again for all the support you give our teachers and faculty, it doesn't go unnoticed.
