Enhancing the education of students in the Ogden School District



Young Automotive Car Donation for Teacher of the Year

Following the announcement at the Evening of Appreciation dinner of Kim Pickett as the Ogden School District Educator of the Year, Mrs. Pickett  got an even bigger surprise the next morning: a one-year lease of a brand new Mazda CX-5! Mrs. Pickett was surprised at a school assembly by our friends at Young Mazda, the Young Caring For Our Young Foundation, and Mazda USA. Included in this amazing gift was a Maverik gas card and auto insurance from Goldenwest Credit Union. The excitement from students, colleagues, and community members was evident as the room erupted in cheers and applause and one thing was overwhelmingly clear: everyone knows that Mrs. Pickett is one incredible teacher!

We are so grateful for our partnership with the Young Automotive Group all they do to recognize the enormous contributions our educators are making every day. Their commitment to the young people in our community is inspiring and we cannot say thank you enough!

Congratulations, Mrs. Pickett! Enjoy your new ride!

Winners were surprised in their classrooms with a $500 monetary prize, were invited to the district's Evening of Appreciation Dinner, and will be recognized in our newsletters throughout the year.

Student Support Centers: Over 1,100 Ogden Students Need Your Help

In partnership with the Ogden School District, we are currently adding Student Support Centers to several of our schools to support students who are experiencing housing insecurity. These new centers will offer access to laundry facilities, showers, food pantries, clothing and basic supplies, academic support areas, and counseling and community resources--all in a way that preserves the dignity of this vulnerable student population. With 1 in 10 Ogden School District students experiencing homelessness at varying times each year, these centers are needed now more than ever. 

We invite you to visit our Student Support Centers page here to learn more and see how you can be involved. Over 1,100 Ogden students are counting on us to help meet their basic needs and remove the educational barriers that may be holding them back.
