No Snow Day Makeup Day for Students

There will be no makeup day for students for the snow day last week.

Last night, the Board of Education unanimously supported a plan to convert the instructional day to a professional development day for teachers. The decision will be ratified at the Board meeting on February 26th.

While there will be no makeup day, we want to make students and parents aware of Utah’s collection of free student online-resources provided through the Utah Education and Telehealth Network (UETN). These online resources can enhance student learning at home in a wide variety of subjects.

CONGRATULATIONS, PRINCIPAL BOLLINGER!!!
We want to CONGRATULATE our amazing MS. AMANDA BOLLINGER, who was awarded the Jordan Education Foundation Rookie Principal of the Year Award on February 5, 2019! What an amazing honor! Thank you so much to all those of you who voted for Ms. Bollinger and wrote words of tribute for her. As you are all aware, there is no one who deserves this award more than she does. She works so very hard for our students, teachers and community, and while she does not enjoy being the focus of attention, she is an amazing light to all of us. Please be sure to tell her how much you appreciate her next time you see her!  (And hurry - before she sees this post and takes it down!)

 


Spreading Kindness...

As part of our Hello Kindness Campaign, our BCE Student Council presented a poster to our Herriman Unified Fire Department to thank them for their service to our community. Every student was given the chance to add their thumbprint to the poster!


4th Grade Waters Van Presentations

Our 4th grade students were able to participate in a Waters Van Visit by the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. Students were able to develop an understanding of the function and role of a wetland in Utah through hands-on learning and by meeting animal ambassadors from Utah’s wetlands.

Introducing our New Administrative Assistant!

We would like to congratulate our previous Administrative Assistant, Connie Robinson, on her retirement! Our BCE community would like to welcome our new Administrative Assistant, Tricia Loveridge! Here is a little more about her...

Hello! My name is Tricia Loveridge. I have lived in Herriman with my family for the past 12 years. I love Herriman! It is such a beautiful place. I just recently became the new administrative assistant at Butterfield Canyon Elementary, which I am very excited about!!  I have worked at the school for 9 years doing different jobs. I love the people I work with and the students at our school! We have an amazing school and staff and I consider myself very lucky to be a part of it.

A little about about me. I grew up in Upstate New York in a small town called Whitesboro. I love New York and still consider myself a New Yorker. I also lived in Nevada for 13 years in a little town called Winnemucca.  I am married to an amazing husband and we have 5 beautiful children, 4 boys and 1 girl. I also have 1 daughter-in-law and 1 adorable grand baby!

When I’m not at work I love to travel, cook, spend time with my family, use my silhouette and browse Pinterest. I also love being a Bobcat!!! I look forward to helping each of you at our school.

-Tricia Loveridge


5th Grade Biz Town Field Trip

The JA City 5th grade program (JA BizTown) combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to this fully-interactive simulated learning facility. Through daily lessons, hands-on activities and active participation in running the city, students learn to connect the dots between what they are learning in school and what they will need to know in their life beyond graduation.  During their day at JA BizTown, students work as employees in various businesses facilitated by volunteer educators and business professionals.  They are paid for their labor and they manage personal and business checking accounts. Throughout the day students also learn first-hand about time and money management as they work, bank and shop as consumers.  The JA BizTown experience helps students develop competitive skills and confidence.


Boundary Changes  
The JSD School Board approved boundary changes for the 2019-20 school year. Please visit boundary.jordandistrict.org for more information, including updated permit procedures for the 2019-20 school year.
