May 5, 2018~~~~ Jesse Boyd Elementary School
Greetings from Dr. Rose
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. One of my favorite quotes about teaching is, "it takes a big heart to teach little minds." I hope you join me in thanking your student's teachers this week....not necessarily with gifts, but with your words of appreciation.

5th grade parents
We need a baby picture of your student.
You can email a picture to JBEclassof2018@gmail.com or if you are unable to scan a picture, you can bring it into school and we can do that for you. We need these pictures by MAY 15!
PTSO is accepting donations towards the 5th grade celebration. Any monetary gifts should be clearly labeled JBEPTSO. PTSO also needs canned sodas and small water bottles. These all can be dropped off in the JBE office by May 21st.
And do not forget about 5th grade Honor's Day on May 30th:
Cell phone usage in Carline
We have noticed in the past few weeks an increase of cell phone use during carpool line. As stated before, we put the safety of our students as the number one priority. We are concerned with parents using cell phones distracting the flow of the traffic, disrupting concentration on their student, and reckless driving due to non-blue tooth usage.
We respectively ask that you not use your cell phone in the car line. Again our students' safety is of the most importance.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Rose at 594-4430 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Bruster's at Lunch
This year at JBE, our 5th grade students are working towards many aspects of their Exhibition. The action piece has begun through a sock program. The fifth grade students of Jesse Boyd started the sock campaign to provide clean drinking water for schools where children cannot get the clean water they need to live healthy lives. Help us play a small part in giving the gift of water - purchase a pack of socks and together we can change the lives of others... one step at a time. Remember, Every Drop Counts!!!!!!!
