Characteristic of a Successful Learner (CSL): Act Responsibly
Bucket-Filling Trait: Kindness
It's a Marvelous Monday at JSE
Good Evening JSE Families,
We are well into 2nd semester; in fact, progress reports come home next Thursday. We are taking all precautions to make sure we don't get the winter learning blues. Our schedules are full of new and exciting standards, our goals are rigorous, and we are looking forward to upcoming fun learning activities.
Educating the whole child: This Friday our students look forward to the Ned Show, a student assembly highlighting our successful learner and bucket-filling traits! I look forward to the Successful Learner breakfast this Thursday.
The Porter County Career Dental students will be here Tuesday afternoon for Dental Awareness Month. Students will learn important dental hygiene information and information on careers in the dental field.
Making Tracks: Bravo to our Science Bowl Team and Peter Pan Cast!
This Tuesday many of our 3-5th graders begin "Money Matters" after-school program with a JA community volunteer.
Save the date for our UTSC Elementary Free Winterland Fitness Night at WHS, more information below.
A reminder that we will not have school next week on Friday, the 12th and Monday, the 15th UNLESS we have a snow day before then.
Every Student, Every Day!
