SoJo Spirit Award Applications Due May 3


This year at South Jordan Middle we introduced a new Student Achievement Award that we have called the SoJo Spirit Award. Students can earn the award by demonstrating outstanding achievement in academics, school activities, and citizenship. Awards will be given by grade level: 7th – Bronze, 8th – Silver, 9th – Gold. Also, if a student has earned the Spirit Award all 3 years at SoJo, they will qualify for the Platinum Award (this will only be offered once current 7th graders are in 9th grade). As this award was introduced in the Fall, students have been earning points towards the Spirit Award all year. In order to qualify for the award students must fill out the application documenting the points they have earned with a signature verification from teachers, supervisors, coaches, etc. In addition, there is a brief essay included in the application. The Spirit Award applications are due to the Counseling Center by Tuesday, May 3, 2016. We encourage all students to participate. Applications can be found in the main office or printed here: SOJO Spirit Award

Parent Teacher Conferences

We are very excited for Parent Teacher Conferences this week on Wednesday and Thursday nights! Wednesday conferences will be from 4:00 – 8:00 pm and Thursday will be from 4:00 – 7:30 pm. Our teachers are looking forward to meeting with you to give updates on students’ progress and answer any questions you may have.
While at the conferences we would like to invite you to take the School Climate Survey, if you haven’t already done so. We will have computers available so that the survey will only take a few minutes. This survey is very important to us, as we really need your input and feedback to better serve your students. Here is the link to the survey as well: http://bit.ly/1O5llE2
Also, join us in the gym for the School Book Fair from 4 pm – 7:30 pm each night. 90% of the books at the fair support the AR reading program. If you can’t make it to the school those nights, you can still shop online starting February 17th. Follow this link http://tinyurl.com/jmsxfo9 to the online fair. There are hundreds of more books available online, most of which support AR. You can shop online until March 1st.
We hope to see you on Wednesday or Thursday night. Thank you for your support of SoJo Middle!
