Discover, develop, and celebrate greatness.
Message from the Principal
Silver Crest Elementary is the best school in Jordan School District! I know I might be a bit biased, but I am lucky to get to work amongst talented teachers, staff, students and parents. We believe that all students can learn at high levels and we work hard to make that a reality. The student teachers and interns who join our team at Silver Crest must be dedicated to becoming the best teacher they can be. We will push you, but provide the support needed for you to succeed and step out into a classroom of your own. We look for individuals who are willing to learn with us and become partners in ensuring all students learn.
While we work extremely hard, we celebrate learning and have a lot of fun along the way. We love the enthusiasm, excitement and dedication you bring to our school and thank BYU-ID for partnering with Jordan School District, and Silver Crest, to provide such talented student teachers and interns. I truly believe in public education and the good we do daily. Thank you for joining the best profession on earth. Be prepared to work harder than you ever thought possible while being rewarded beyond measure. Teaching is amazing!!!
About the School
Silver Crest Elementary is located in the rapidly growing city of Herriman (about 25 miles south and west of Salt Lake City.) Our faculty is dedicated to giving students a great education with a good foundation in basic skills and ample opportunities for growth. Our focus is on kids, and "what's best for kids" impacts each decision we make. We have a strong PTA, with a great, supportive community, and all work together to create and maintain the positive atmosphere that is so important to us here at Silver Crest.
Silver Crest Elementary serves 950 students from K-6 on a year-round calendar. This means we begin earlier and end later than a traditional schedule, but teachers and students get four 3-week breaks at various times during the year.
The school day begins at 8:25 a.m. and ends at 3:25 p.m. except on Fridays, when school dismisses at 1:20 p.m. to allow teachers time for planning.
Our beautiful, kid-friendly, two-story building, opened in August of 2009. It features large spacious classrooms equipped with lots of storage, sinks, audio enhancement and digital projection systems.
Silver Crest is a "Leader in Me" school. Which means our students are trained in Stephen Covey's 7 Habits to build leadership skills, and help children see the greatness within. Student leaders perform varied functions at the school, from creating televised school-wide announcements, to participating in student council, to serving in leadership roles within their individual classrooms. The children keep data notebooks to track their academic progress and share these with parents during student-led conferences twice a year.
Silver Crest actively participates in Professional Learning Communities (PLC's). Teacher's meet weekly with their team for 45 minutes to discuss student performance and support each other in efforts to enhance achievement. During this time, their classes are instructed in art, character ed, leadership skills, etc., by educational aides.
