School Announcements
Grace Jordan Shines at the Great Potato Run
Grace Jordan's Jaguar Joggers and Girls with Grace teams recently participated in the annual Great Potato 5K/10K/Half Marathon/Marathon Run. Staff and students have practiced every Monday and Wednesday throughout the school year, and this culminating run was a huge success. Students were excited to gain an appreciation for running and living a healthy life-style, but they also learned a great deal about character and perseverance. Everyone had a great time, and we commend all of our students, staff, and parents who participated in this terrific event.
Nachos with Numbers!
Grace Jordan students and their families had the opportunity to attend Nachos with Numbers, on May 5. The evening began with a delicious meal of nachos and salad while being entertained by the Mariachi Band, Mariachi Corasonito d Fuego (Little Heart of Fire). The recently formed band delighted the attendees with traditional Mexican music!
 
The evening continued with a variety of games involving math; More or Less, Place Value Pocket Charts, Subtraction Action, Roll an Array, Churro Walk, Fraction Fun, Geoboards, Fraction Fun to name a few!
 
The event proved to be enjoyable and created memories for all! A big thank you to parents, staff, student volunteers from Bishop Kelly and Borah High Schools, and the community for making the evening possible.
 
 
 
 
Grace Jordan Recognizes the Power of Volunteers!
Grace Jordan is extremely fortunate to have parents and community members who volunteer at our school on a regular basis. Their commitment and dedication has allowed Grace Jordan's students to reach new heights, and our staff and students wanted to find a way to thank these wonderful members of our team. We recently hosted a breakfast to recognize their tremendous contributions to our school. Our volunteers also received a Grace Jordan Volunteer
T-Shirt as a token of our appreciation. Approximately 100 people were recognized for their time and energy. On behalf of our entire staff and student body we would like to thank our amazing community for all that you do to make Grace Jordan Elementary School such a special place.

There is one word which may serve as a rule of practice for all one's life - reciprocity. ~Confucius
