Celebrations, Announcements, Events Week of Feb 25, 2020

Hello Jordan High Families!

We have a lot going on this week especially as we launch into tryouts for spring sports and host Parent Teacher Conferences. Many of our students have done some incredible things that we want to share it with you.

Celebrations:

  • Congratulations to the Jordan High Cheerleaders who recently placed fourth at their recent nationals competition in California! Way to go!
  • Congratulations to both the Girls and Boys Basketball Teams who advanced in the state play-offs last week. Both teams fought hard during their last games against Westlake and Skyridge respectively, and we had a lot of school spirit shown by our students. While we did not advance to the quarterfinals, the teams showed tremendous talent and represented the Diggers well. Way to go!
  • Congratulations to Jordan High’s Robotics Team, the Gravediggers, who represented our school well at the Capitol last week. They participated in an event called “Robots on the Rotunda” and showed all of our legislators their incredible problem-solving skills. Way to go!
  • Congratulations to the Jordan High Drumline who also performed at the State Capitol last week during the legislative session. People came out of their offices and out of conference sessions to hear their amazing talent. These students also did a great job of explaining why it’s great to be a Beetdigger here at Jordan High!

Managing Your Website

“A website has three components: design, structure and content.  But no-one visits a website for its design or structure, only for its content.  Good design and good structure support content, but the content itself must be valuable.”

Why Websites Matter

In today’s era of school choice, the K12 profession has become a crowded field with public schools striving to differentiate themseves from private institutions, charter schools, and magnet programs.  Not only are school districts competing for students, they’re competing to recruit and retain the best teachers—which is why they must market themselves in much the same way that most businesses do.  Now, more than ever, schools must communicate effectively about their achievements, programs, student services, and extracurricular activities.  Canyons District’s family of more than 60 websites are a living record of the District and its schools, and the anchor bbehind our brand and its communications efforts.

  • Your website is the main way that people interact with you most of the time.  For many people, your website is your school.
  • Many people visit your website before they visit your campus or office, or before they email or phone you.  First impressions count.
  • Remember, it’s not about you.  Your website does not exist for you to tell people things;  it exists for people to find out things about you.
