SAGE Testing Is Just Around The Corner!
The school year is coming fast to a close. As always at the ending of a school year, the testing season starts. Here are a few things you can do to help your teenager prepare for taking the tests.
- Encourage your teen to start early. Have them spend a few minutes each day getting organized. Pull together all their old tests—they’re great for review. If your teen has lost some of these exams, ask the teacher for copies.
- Help your teen set specific study goals. Studying for 20 minutes each day for a week is better than studying for two hours on the night before the test.
- Provide a quiet place for your teen to study. During study time, turn off the TV, radio and computer and have your teen turn off her cellphone. If everyone is working quietly, it will be easier for your teen to focus.
- Make sure your teen gets a good night’s sleep the night before a big test. Don’t let them cram all night.

New Construction Information
The Jordan School District Board of Education has approved a bid to remodel South Hills Middle School! Phase one of the construction will begin immediately and we anticipate that the project will be completed in the fall of 2018.
For your information, the construction zone is located on the east side of the building, where the Main Entrance was formerly located. The new Main Entrance is located on the north-east corner of the building by the gym. By way of reminder, please use the north parking lot to pick up and drop off your student. Visitors may also park in the north lot.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this process.
We are looking forward to the improvements this project will bring to South Hills Middle and want to ensure you that every effort is being made so that this will not disrupt the environment nor educational experience of your child. Please watch for communications in the future outlining the extent of our remodel and improvements that will be implemented.
Please see the attached map for more information.
