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
