How We Help
Jordan Middle School
"A strong education offers one both rigorous academic, and enriching classroom experiences.
funding allows us to provide an engaging, supportive, and rich middle school experience for all
of our students. Your generous contributions help support over 30 different elective courses,
outstanding music and foreign language programs, extensive technology mentoring for our students
and teachers, and a full-time counselor at every grade level. Thank you for your donations to
PiE. Your generous contributions have a significant and measurable impact on every student in
the school. Our school community would not be the same without you."
– Jordan Principal Greg Barnes
At Jordan Middle School, the funds generously donated by parents and community members have
allowed PiE to provide Jordan with $273,782. The money will be spent in 2012-13 in
these vital areas to benefit all students:
Additional Electives —
Donations to PiE enrich the electives environment at Jordan. PiE funds
will contribute to creative writing, music sectionals and specialists, choir and accompanist,
biotechnology, Jordan TV (video production), regional & world foods, and an expansion in the
language program in French and Spanish. PiE dollars allow Jordan to offer a wide array of
electives so that kids can discover subjects they love in school
Student Support — Gifts to PiE help fund additional counselor’s time, making it possible for
each grade at Jordan to have its own counselor who will travel all three years with the same
kids, allowing the counselors to know and support every student better
Teacher and Classroom Support — PiE donors provide a teacher
coach to help integrate writing skills throughout all grades at Jordan. They also pay for a
technology mentor to help all Jordan teachers best use technology in their curricula, and
also for a computer lab tech to work with teachers and students in the school’s computer
lab to ensure that time in the lab is spent productively and efficiently. Without PiE
donations, the school’s computer lab could not be staffed to offer this support.
Your 2013-14 Jordan PiE Chairs are Kamal Ardeshna, Colleen Gormley, Mirmy Kang, Marina Zago.
