Intramural Programs Thrive at Jordan Intermediate School
Friday, January 18, 2019
In addition to a rigorous academic program, students at Jordan Intermediate School benefit from a variety of intramural opportunities and after-school programs. Two popular programs are the Jordan Volleyball and Fitness Club and Jordan Dance Club (JDC). Physical Education teacher Jillian Page supervises the Jordan Volleyball and Fitness Club. Ms. Page's background includes playing and coaching competitive volleyball and she is motivated to help students whether they intend to play in high school or just for fun. Every Tuesday and Thursday, the Volleyball Club can be found at the nets practicing drills, skills, and playing games.
The Jordan Dance Club (JDC) was established in 2014 to give students an outlet to express themselves creatively through dance. Students not only join JDC to dance but for lasting friendships and the feeling of belonging. JDC has grown from 15 members in 2014 to well over 40 members today. The club is supervised by teacher Duyen Tong, and run by the student leaders who are the officers of the club. They take on their own responsibilities to make sure JDC is running smoothly. Their coach is also GGUSD home-grown and has performed for America's Got Talent with the group BTS.
