Congratulations to Ben Moser, James Madison teacher, for being honored with Ogden School District's March Achieving Higher Award!

Congratulations to Ben Moser, James Madison Elementary teacher, for being honored with Ogden School District's March Achieving Higher Award! He demonstrates extraordinary skill in and dedication to create a collaborative culture where students are motivated to achieve by setting, monitoring, adjusting and celebrating individualized goals!

Read his nominations below:

"It's no surprise that a switch goes off in the brains of many 6th graders at the start of each year. They "forget" how to behave, and how to work on their core subjects. Yes, the "forgetfulness" is selective, but none-the-less it’s something that the teachers have to deal with, and try diligently to work around. When Ben Moser came to JMES, he became a dynamic part of the James Madison family and impacted teachers and students in an enormously positive way. He has brought refreshing ideas, strategies, and a new energy to the building that has helped to modify behavior and change student motivation in such a way that the positive changes can be seen visibly. His catch-phrase, “It’s all about the choices we make, beginning with the simple ones, that shape our day and our life,” has become a mantra with our 6th-grade students and is spreading throughout the building to influence other grade levels. In 6th grade we have begun a "Choices Motivator" where the teachers choose a "choice" goal each week. Every moment we remind the students about making simple choices. Each day I see for students actively making the "choice" to participate. Our goal is for those simple choices to become second nature to each student so that later on, the more difficult choices they face will become easier make. By focusing on choices, students are beginning to change the way they think and behave by holding themselves accountable for their behavior and their academic performance. Ben not only collaborates with the upper elementary teachers' but is willing to share his thoughts and ideas with everyone. It’s a pleasure, and an honor, to work beside him." - Theresa McInnes

Congratulations to Levi Andersen, Mound Fort teacher, for being honored with Ogden School District's March Achieving Higher Award!

Congratulations to Levi Andersen, Mound Fort Junior High teacher, for being honored with Ogden School District's March Achieving Higher Award! He demonstrates extraordinary skill in and dedication to create a collaborative culture where students are motivated to achieve by setting, monitoring, adjusting and celebrating individualized goals!

Read his nominations below:

"Levi Andersen has a student this year that wanted to take two classes that were offered at the same time. Given the scheduling conflict, he collaborated with the student, the counselors, administration, and librarians to offer his class online through Canvas. With the help from Du Bui, Mr. Andersen fully integrated his lessons into Canvas allowing the student to take the desired elective class as well as her Utah Studies class. Mr. Andersen checks in with her weekly to monitor her progress, celebrate her successes and ensure she is fulfilling the necessary requirements and to answer any questions she has. He even videos his honors class discussions with the Swivl he was trained to use this year and uploads them into Canvas so that the student is able to see and hear what the class discussed. She has completed all the assignments with passing scores and has even moved ahead of where the class is currently. Levi Andersen is a great example of someone who creates a collaborative culture where this student is motivated to achieve her individual goals! Levi Andersen is a first year teacher who just graduated this past December! In addition to fulfilling all the new teacher requirements, he also studied and learned several new things this year such as his Utah Studies curriculum, Canvas integration, Swivl for videoing his lessons, and teaching and management strategies. He is not one to complain about how full his plate is and is always eager to try out new things in the best interest of his students and their learning." - Bryan Becherini & Amber Letcher

"There is a 7th grade student who wanted to take 9th grade honors math, band, and an accelerated Utah studies course at the same time but could not. Levi Andersen accommodated her situation by allowing her to take the class by herself online during his prep. He set everything up in Canvas. She is even ahead of his honors course. Levi checks in with her during this class to see where she is. He curates materials, plans lessons, and records himself teaching so that she can watch during this time. Because of his use of the blended learning flex model, Maleah is allowed to reach her goals of taking all of these courses." - Du Bui

Ogden High School has been selected as the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, 2018 Community Service High School Winner

Ogden High School has been selected as the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, 2018 Community Service High School Winner.

The OHS FCCLA will be recognized and presented with the High School Community Service Award of $1000 at the 2018 National Leadership Conference in Atlanta, GA!

Ogden High School FCCLA community service project:

"Homelessness is a devastating event which happens to many people, even families. Utah has over 13,000 homeless people, and 5,000 are under the age of 18. Many people who work a minimum wage job cannot afford the cost of living. They have to make decisions like whether they will pay for gas to get to work or have heat. Many people help the homeless during the Christmas season, but the homeless need help all year long. They need the basic necessities and we want to raise awareness of the local homeless population and their needs.

Our first goal was to provide the homeless and those in need with food. Our goal was to hold a food drive and to collect 3,000 pounds of food. We live in a low-income area and many of our students live in poverty. Some families are on the verge of homelessness and barley scraping by, so we wanted to fill our food bank and school pantries with food. We also gave out food to homeless people on the street, two homeless shelters and some struggling families at our school and the elderly. We also wanted to provide the homeless with a basic necessities bag, which included hygiene products, snacks, food and warm clothing. We wanted to make hats and raise money to buy gloves too. Our goal was also to raise awareness and recruit other teens to help the homeless in our area. We worked with our school’s Prostart and child development classes on our project and recruited the Change Maker’s clubs at two local high schools to assist us with our project."

FCCLA students working on community service project

Ogden High's FCCLA has 24 members that were able to reach more than 1,300 people through their community service project where they collected 3,310.50 pounds of food.

Way to go students. Y'all rock!!
