The Dan Jordan Friendship Fund

One of Mr. Dan Jordan’s extraordinary gifts was the ability to connect with people, no matter where or when he met them.  When speaking with Gwen, Dan’s wife, she told us that Dan had a special gift and he believed in making a difference.  He often said: “The best thing I can give to anyone is my time.” And that’s exactly what he did.  He took the time to make people feel that they mattered. 

Dan held Emmons School close to his heart. Both of Dan & Gwen daughters, Payton and Reagan, attended Emmons from Kindergarten through 8th grade. In addition to being active parents in the community, Dan also served as a member and as President of the Board of Education at Emmons from 2004 until 2011 where he did whatever it took to help the district move forward.

We were heartbroken to learn of Dan’s sudden passing on February 27, 2019.  In order to honor his memory and his dedication to Emmons School, his family has chosen to establish The Dan Jordan Friendship Fund in his name. The goal of this special fund is to create the ability to sponsor programs at Emmons that cultivate acts of kindness and friendship among all of its students, from Kindergarten through 8th grade. 

We hope you will consider contributing to this fund in Dan’s honor.  Dan and his family have been a large part of the Emmons Community for many years.  He will remain with us forever and will be missed.

Donations can be sent into the school made payable to Emmons and to the attention of Lisa Lawler. Please note that your donation is for The Dan Jordan Friendship Fund. Or there is a Go Fund Me account set up, please click here.

In a world where you can be anything, Be KIND. 

Dismissal Changes

The attendance email ( can be used to communicate a dismissal change, but we ask that you only make changes to a child’s dismissal when absolutely necessary. In an effort to keep our students safe, we are asking that you do not change how they go home. Dismissal changes can cause confusion and back up our parent pickup line. Long pickup lines can only filter out onto Beach Grove Road, which is not only a safety issue, but can prevent our buses from entering our parking lot, thus delaying the release of the buses once they are loaded. In the event of an emergency and you have to make a change to your child’s dismissal, please note that we cannot accept any changes after 2:00pm. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
