They will be giving away almost 1,000 tickets and special blue Vivint gives back shirts to the game to families that have a child with Autism.

Principal's Message, January

January is coming to a close and hopefully Spring is upon us soon.  Reminder to all families that we will be having our Parent Teacher Conferences the nights of the 15th and 16th of February.  The evenings will focus on your students successes at Jordan Valley.  Your classroom teacher will contact you directly to set up a time on one of those two nights.

We have a new Music Therapist at Jordan Valley as of January 17th.  Her name is Sarah Mortensen.  She is already a very important addition to Jordan Valley.  Come by Jordan Valley and introduce yourself to her.  Because Sarah is starting her new position so late in the year, we will not be having our usual Spring Musical Production at Jordan Valley.  Next school year the production will return.

Thank you families for all you do for your students.

Winter is among us.  Please make sure your students are getting on the bus with the proper warm clothing.  I would like to thank all that participated in our Winter Dance on December 8th.  We had a lot of our 16-22 year students participate as well as our past alumni. We have had the same amazing band play for us for the last 32 years.  "Family and Friends" really know how to keep rocken!!

We would like to wish everyone a wonderful winter break.  The last day of school before winter break will be December 21st.  School will resume on January 3rd.  

Be safe and have a wonderful Holiday Season!!
