Final Shoe Drive Total

We want to thank everyone in our Herriman Community for helping our students collect 2,716 pairs of shoes.  We also want to thank Miss Riverton, Amber Barron, for allowing us to collaborate with her and help the Miss Utah Organization and the Shoes for Africa project.  Students had fun bringing in pairs of shoes, lining them up along the hallways, and seeing the total number of pairs grow each day!

To read about the success of the project in the Deseret News, click HERE.

To keep track of Miss Riverton and her progress, click HERE.  You can also “like” her page on Facebook – it’s called ‘STEM Not Only For Men.’

If you are interested in continued collaboration with the Shoes for Africa project, drop your shoes off at any of these alternate locations:

Girl Scouts of Utah Store:  445 East 4500 South, Suite 125
Riverton City Hall
Riverton Peterson’s
Riverton Run Gr8 Location
Riverton Library

Shoe Drive Update

You may have noticed the many pairs and styles of shoes lining the walls in our school.  This is because we are helping out Miss Riverton, Amber Barron, collect used shoes to benefit young children and families in Africa.  She challenged our students to collect 1,000 pairs of shoes and we have already collected 1,700 pairs of shoes!!  The Hawk Leadership Team would love to double the challenged number and collect 2,000 pairs of shoes.

In order to accomplish this goal, we will be having a "BONUS" collection day:  Monday, March 16th.  Please ask your family, friends, and neighbors to donate one last pair and help Miss Riverton!

Check out the Jordan District Site to read more about this project!  Miss Riverton Shoe Drive

Herriman Celebrates Whirled Peace Day

We hope you had a chance to see all the creative pinwheels made by students at Herriman Elementary in honor of Whirled Peace Day.  We even had a special visit from our Mayor, Carmen Freeman.  A big thank you to Mrs. Coyle for pulling this activity together.

Miss Nelson is Missing!

Miss Nelson visited our school this week.  Our students enjoyed watching this beloved storybook brought to life by great actors from the Kensington Theater Company of South Jordan, Utah.
