Hey Book Lovers! Do you enjoy reading? Do you enjoy talking about good books with others? Then you need to join Book Whisperers! Our group meets every Tuesday from 3:00-3:30 in the Jungle Pod, which is the south 7th grade pod. We welcome 7th, 8th, and 9th graders, and even teachers. We read one novel per month and meet weekly to discuss each section. If you attend the first meeting on Tuesday, September 4th at 3 pm, you will get to help choose the books we read this year! If you have any questions, see Mrs. Blowers in the Jungle Pod or Mrs. Hendricks in the Frog Pod. We hope to see you there!

We've made an adjustment to the disclosures that students will receive this year, and we hope it is one that makes the first day of school a little easier on parents.

Each student will receive ONE disclosure document in second period on the first day of school. It is one page, front and back. It contains the most crucial policies and directs parents and students to the online Student Handbook.

For classes that have more specific policies or requirements, teachers have submitted a disclosure addendum. These addendums are only available online at this page.

The single page disclosure will be signed by parents and students after they have had a chance to review the handbook and disclosure addendums. That single page will be turned in to second period when completed. Signed disclosures will be kept on file in the office.

Sunset Ridge Middle School has openings for five members on its School Community Council. Members of the Council will assist in creating the school's long-term vision and goals and in crafting the School Land Trust plan.

Applications will be accepted on the form linked below through Wednesday, August 22, at 3:00 PM. A ballot will be available for parents at Back-to-School Night on Thursday, August 23. The individuals who receive the most votes from ballots cast will be invited to join the School Community Council.

Access the application form here.

Welcome to the Sunset Ridge family!

There has been some confusion about PE courses at Sunset Ridge Middle School. We hope this message will clarify the situation and answer lingering questions.

PE is a required course for all students in the Jordan School District in grades 7, 8, and 9. It is anticipated that every student, except for those with significant social, emotional, or physical concerns, will take PE at Sunset Ridge Middle School during the school day.

It is possible to take a PE course online through various providers, including Utah Students Connect. These courses are entirely self-directed and can be challenging for a student to complete. The majority of students are more successful in a daily PE class with teacher direction and assistance. Note: Some 9th grade students elected to take their PST PE course in the summer – those students who enrolled in and passed the summer course will receive credit on their transcripts and will have their schedules adjusted prior to the start of the school year.

Parents of students with significant social, emotional, or physical concerns may wish to visit with their student’s counselor to discuss their options. Counselors will return to the building in early August; however, to ensure your ability to discuss concerns with your student’s counselor, it is highly advised that you contact the Counseling Office at 801-412-2485 to set an appointment.

We look forward to seeing all students back for the start of the school year in late August.

Thank you,

Sunset Ridge Middle School Administration
