Kindergarten Registration

On Thursday, March 5, 2020, Grace Jordan Elementary will hold Kindergarten Registration/Open House. Parents can start the process now by registering their child through our on-line system. (Click below for the link.) Then be sure to attend our annual Kindergarten Registration/Open House on Thursday, March 5, 2020 at your neighborhood elementary school. You can expect to go to stations with your kindergarten student which will help us prepare for his/her upcoming arrival in the fall.

Parent Survey

One of the pieces of Idaho’s new school accountability system is a parent survey. This survey asks for your input on several topics to help measure how our schools are doing in meeting your needs.

To access the survey, click the link below. Then pick your student’s school from the drop-down menu. Please complete a survey for each school your child attends.

The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and your responses are anonymous. You can submit your survey from February 18 thru March 31, 2020.

We will use these survey responses to identify opportunities to maximize satisfaction, engagement, and communication. Additionally, the state will report the results and the number of responses on Idaho’s new school report card (https://idahoschools.org/).

Thank you for participating in the survey. If you have any questions, please contact your school’s Principal.

PBIS/Toolbox/Love and Logic

We are committed to both academic and behavioral learning at Grace Jordan. Just like in reading and math, some students struggle with behavior in school, especially when they’re not sure what’s expected of them. If we react only with punishment, students don’t learn the skills they need to make positive changes in the future. To teach these skills, we incorporate a system called Toolbox. This system system builds individual resilience, self-mastery and empathy and teaches practices for community wellness. Overall the focus of PBIS is to prevent misbehavior, not punish students. When students do make mistakes, we try to incorporate natural consequences. You can learn more about natural consequences through Love and Logic.
