Congratulations Officer Jason Child!
"Northern Utah School Resource Officer of the Year"
Huge congratulations to Officer. Jason Child who was recognized last week for his excellent work with our school students. Excerpt from Officer. Child's nomination: "Jason has been employed with North Ogden City since September of 2001. He began his career in Animal Services and then transferred over to the Police Department two years later. Jason is currently our School Resource Officer and has done a tremendous job of working with administrators, faculty, and students to improve overall relations at all Weber District schools in North Ogden. He has been able to focus his efforts on students that are deficient, both socially or academically, and has given them confidence to improve their grades and attendance. Officer Child recently established the Tri-City Youth Court involving student volunteers from Weber High, North Ogden Junior High, and Orion Junior High, which has given them the opportunity to learn the process of court proceedings and how the judicial system works. Students referred to the Youth Court system are given the chance to avoid juvenile court trials and a juvenile criminal record. Officer Child oversees our crossing guards, scout and community projects, youth tours, and participates in the Weber Coalition for Suicide Prevention program. Jason teaches DARE at all three elementary schools, and has taught Safety, Texting, Bullying, and the dangers of Alcohol curriculum to students at North Ogden Junior High. He has helped provide annual ALERRT training at our schools too. Officer Child is well liked by his students because he has a genuine concern for their well-being and academic achievements."
Great improvements at North Ogden Junior High have steadily been taking place. New carpet in the lobby and breezeway, updated paint in hallway, and cafeteria. The old gym will soon be available for our volleyball team, and PE classes. The transition for the theater locker room and stage are soon approaching the final stages of completion.
The new gym is continually progressing, with the hard work of construction and details being met. I am very impressed with the quality of the workmanship that is taking place every day, to give our students the best.
Our teachers and staff have commented on the wonderful students in our building. I appreciate the efforts on all parts to show the kindness and respect to each other here in our building. I enjoy greeting students as they walk into school, and throughout the day on their way to class.
