May 4-8 is Teacher Appreciation week at Joel P Jensen Middle School.  Take a minute to thank your teacher and all staff at Joel P Jensen for all they do to educate our students and make Joel P Jensen the best it can be.

It’s been awesome to be a Panther!  The Governor of the great state of Utah Gary Herbert came to Joel P. Jensen recently and signed new education bills into law. The Governor spoke to the students and stressed the importance of obtaining post-high school education.  Joel P. Jensen represented well and it was an honor to host the Governor, legislators and Jordan School District administrators at our great school.

Joel P Jensen passed accreditation review with an overall above-average score and has received accreditation for another five years.

The Joel P Jensen School Community Council comprised of JPJ parents, staff and administration recently approved school Trust lands Funding to be used for 1) Funding for a full-time counselor and programs to improve Plans for College and Career Readiness; 2) Funding to continue ZAP program and learning lab aids; 3) Funding for teacher professional development; and 4) Funding to increase access to technology.

Remodeling at our school is well underway.  There are many changes being made, a few being the office will be moved towards the front of the school, the Kiva is being updated, and air conditioning will be added.  YAY!

As the end of year approaches, don’t forget to purchase a Memory Book for your student.  If you did not purchase one, you can still do so for $30.00 in the front office.  If you’re not sure if you purchased one for your student at registration at the beginning of the school year, look for a list to be posted by the front office of those who have purchased a book.  Don’t be caught without a book to sign on Memory Book day in June.

An annual PTSA general membership meeting (via email) will be held on Monday, May 18 2015.  A financial report of our PTSA will be sent via email to all members of this PTSA as well as a brief PTSA report.

Thank you for all of your support

Janet Hamilton
