From the Principal, for Aug. 21:
New Faces in the Front Office
Two staff members from the 2015-16 school year are off on new adventures in PAUSD this year. Jim Cox, Assistant Principal, has returned to Terman as a science teacher. He is passionate about teaching and excited to reconnect with colleagues and students in the Terman community. Jeff Gielow, counselor, has also transferred to Terman to further expand his professional experience. As a former Jordan student, aide, intern, and counselor, the opening on the Terman counseling team will allow Jeff to broaden his PAUSD experience and grow professionally. We wish both Mr. Cox and Mr. Gielow the very best in their new roles!
We are welcoming two new team members to our front office staff this year.
Welcome to Mr. Smith & Ms. Hartley!
Please support the Jordan Book Fair all this week in the library! All proceeds benefit our library program which touches ALL students in the Jordan community.
The Jordan Climate Committee is composed of staff, parents, and students. The Committee discusses ideas and events that build on the JORDAN ROCKS slogan; Respectful Open-minded Community of Kind and Safe students. The Committee meets the first Tuesday of every month and the first meeting is Tuesday, September 6 from 3:15-4:15 in B7. If you are interested in attending, contact James Lubbe, Dean of Students, at email@example.com, or feel free to show up. All are welcome!
Learning in Action:
Many classrooms spent considerable time this past week building classroom community, establishing norms, and participating in icebreaker/get-to-know-you activities. Hopefully you have received and reviewed course guides for at least some of your child’s classes. Look for more information in the coming weeks! Also, be sure to mark your calendar for Back-to-School Night on August 31. You’ll have a chance to follow your child’s schedule and meet their teachers.
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
