My Students

Our students pride themselves in being the best scholars and citizens they can be. We work together as a family, set high expectations for everyone, host family learning events, and strive to influence our community in a positive way.

Our kids care for each other and band together to assist anyone in need.

We walk for cancer patients, serve food to first responders, and for over 20 years, we have created cards for Meals on Wheels clients at Christmas time.

My Project

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we want to install tiles on the side walls of our foyer. These will be hand painted four-inch ceramic bisque tiles. Children will each paint a tile illustrating how the Jordan Elementary Team has made a positive impact on his or her life. We want to purchase the tiles and Mayco glazes from NASCO, and our local university art department will fire them for us.

Most of our staff members have brought their own children to Jordan, and some also attended Jordan themselves, so even though Jordan is a large school, we are a family!
