RDT Delights Young Ensign Dancers

RDT 2018

Students at Ensign Elementary School have enjoyed a double dose of dance this month.  The Repertory Dance Theater dancers performed in an assembly for the entire school, matching their dance moves to whatever the announcer requested.  At the end of the performance, students were invited to join in the performance both in the audience and on stage.

Individual K-3 classes have also been invited to learn and move with the RDT pedagogy program.  Lynne Larson, assistant adjunct professor at the University of Utah, and RDT education director, says the program teaches life skills such as:  creative thinking, team work, cooperation, group movement, and how to think outside the box.  It is also part of the state core curriculum.  “It uses their imagination,” said Kristin Adams, a 2nd grade teacher at Ensign.  “Every time, they really enjoy it.”  Lots of smiles and laughter coming from the students prove her point.

 

Red Leashes and Red Jerseys Join Red Ribbons

Ensign Elementary kicked off Red Ribbon Week with crazy sock day on Thursday and a Read-a-thon on Friday. Students spread throughout the school in pajamas and with pillows, comfortably settled with good books. Football players from West High School added to the fun by pairing up to read with the children. Five dog teams from Intermountain Therapy Animals came and made the day even more exciting. Thank you also to Melanie Rogers and our PTA, and Ms. Hamilton’s class who took charge of the event.

When it comes to making good choices, books are a terrific alternative. You can read a book for pleasure, or use books to learn about your favorite subjects. You can also use books to plan a fun trip. Say no to drugs and say yes to books!

Meet your New Principal for next school year!

Erik Jacobson

Dear Ensign Elementary Stake Holders,

Hello! My name is Erik Jacobson, and I have been chosen as the next principal at Ensign Elementary. I would like to say what an honor it is to be chosen to lead such a great school. The more I have learned about Ensign, the more impressed I have been by all the work the community and staff have put into making Ensign the best school possible.

One of the things that drew me to Ensign was the school’s belief in educating the whole child. School is about more than just academics. Students need to be able to think critically about the world around them and then be able to clearly articulate their views and opinions. These are the educational values I see when I look at Ensign, and these are the values I was raised with growing up in rural Wisconsin.           

I was lucky enough to grow up in Portage, Wisconsin, a small town just north of Madison. While growing up there, school was the center of our community. I spent every Friday night at football games and the weekends participating in school-based arts activities. This focus on community is something that was extremely important to me when I was growing up and will be essential to my leadership at Ensign.

After graduating from Portage High School, I attended the University of Minnesota, The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (where I earned my bachelor’s degree), and finally, the University of Utah (where I earned my Master’s degree). I taught 6th grade at Midvale Elementary and at Glendale Middle School before serving as an Assistant Principal at Northwest Middle School for the past three years.

It has always been my goal to be an elementary school principal, and I am proud and humbled to get to work with you and your students. It is my goal to ensure the best possible education for all of the students of Ensign, and I believe that through open and honest communication, we can work together to reach this goal. If you ever have any concerns, comments, or questions, please do not hesitate to come to me. My door will always be open. I look forward to getting to know you all. See you in August!

Sincerely,

Erik Jacobson
