Members of the Herriman High School Latinos in Action led the Pledge of Allegiance at last night’s Board of Education meeting and celebrated their culture with a beautiful poem written by Darianna Faria, a Herriman High student. The poem expressed support for all students, encouraging those who have immigrated to the United States to never forget where they came from and to strive for a better world where all seek to understand one another. The poem went on to say all students who have immigrated from another country should be allowed to achieve their hopes and dreams.
Board members thanked the students for doing a great job representing Herriman High School and Latinos in Action.
It was a family night of fun at Columbia Elementary School and there was a big surprise in store for students. The school held its annual book fair this week for all the little bookworms who love to read.
This year, Santa Claus made a surprise appearance and he spent an hour or so reading to students and their families. Mr. Claus also brought hot cocoa to share with everyone while he read to them.
Thanks to Santa and the PTA for making this a great kick off to the holiday season and an inspiration for students to keep up their love for reading.
Some call them short order cooks in a school cafeteria really like no other.

Thank you to all of Jordan School District’s hard-working Nutrition Services employees who served up a Thanksgiving feast with a side of smiles in honor of the holiday, like they did at Westvale Elementary School. You made Thanksgiving special for students, teachers, and staff this year and we are filled with gratitude for the delicious food you prepare each and every day.
Happy Thanksgiving from everyone in Jordan School District. We hope you have a happy, safe, and restful holiday surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones.
