An upcoming art project in Mrs. Kemp's class needs tin cans and plastic bottles – any size/shape will do!  If families have a can of soup or veggies or a bottled soda, water, or juice please consider saving the container for Mount Jordan. Clean the container and either drop off your cans and bottles at the main office or to Mrs. Kemp's classroom directly until January 5th!

Let's fill her classroom with recycled cans and bottles!  Thank you!

Sub For Santa - December Mount Jordan Community Service Project

Posted in News & Announcements


During the month of December Mount Jordan is teaming up with the Utah Food Bank. We have two objectives for this project (1) To raise money for families that might be in need in the Mount Jordan Community and (2) Collect food for the Utah Food Bank and for people in need in the Mount Jordan Community. We hope the community will participate and that students and teachers have fun with this project.

How long can students contribute? From December 3rd to the 17th.

How does it work? All collections will happen during first period classes. Student will turn in canned, boxed, and packaged food. These items have a point value associated with size and protein levels. The point system is as follows:

  1. Cans = 1 Points
  2. Raman = 1 point for 3
  3. Box of Cereal = 2 Points
  4. High Protein = 3 Points
  5. Large or family size items just double it.
  6. Cash or checks are double the value.

What are the School Goals?

  • If the school collects $1200, we will have a “Minute To Win It” School Assembly on 12/19/14
  • If the school collects $1500 teachers will perform Stupid Teacher Tricks
  • The 6th Grade Class, 7th Grade Class, and 8th Grade Class, and Elective Class with the most points wins Breakfast on 12/19!
