The School Community Council is a group of teachers and parents that are elected to serve the greater school community. Council members develop a School Improvement Plan, A Reading Acheivement Plan, and a Child Routing Access Plan for getting to and from school. Council members also assist in the development and implementation of the staff improvement plan. Meetings are usually held bi-monthly during the school year. Anyone can attend and participate, but only council members may vote on issues that are being decided. More information about the community council can be found at www.schoollandtrust.org. Come and help make a difference for our school. Click on the link below to apply for the School Community Council. Forms are due back to school by Sept. 30th.
It is not too late to join the PTA. Membership forms were sent home with the opening day packets. However, if you dont have one you can get a membership form in the West Jordan Elementary School Office. Just $5.00 pays for a membership for the whole school year. Become part of the organization that help enrich the students lives by providing family fun nights, Fall Festival, the Fun Run, reading reward days, field trips and many other things.
Lunch will be served the first day of school at a cost of $1.75 per day and must be pre-paid. Reduced price lunches will remain at $0.40 each. Breakfast will be served at 8:10 the first day of school. Breakfast prices are $0.80 per day or $0.30 for the reduced breakfast. The cost of milk will remain at $0.25 each. For students currently on or applying for free or reduced lunch, these applications must be submitted to the school each and every year. Until applications are turned in and approved students will need to pay for lunches. Lunch fees are not retroactive upon the approval of free/reduced lunch applications, so the sooner you get the applications in the sooner they can be approved.
