Way to go, Caleb and Oana!!!

A little bird told me that Caleb Blair and Oana Kocak competed recently in Huntsville, Alabama. They both received multiple time standards for Southeastern Swim Champions!

Thank You From Dr. Wilson!

Thank you for such an amazing year at JAE! My first year as an assistant principal was wonderful due to the warm welcome and the kindness from students, parents, faculty, and staff! I hope that you have a great summer. I will see you in August! Also, best wishes to all of our 5th graders as they transition to middle school.

Thank You, LHBC Life Group!

A ton of trimming and weeding took place over the weekend around campus. An amazing neighborhood Life Group from Long Hollow Baptist Church adopted our school a few years ago, and they have been so kind to our school! It looks amazing, and we are so thankful for your help!

Congratulations, Jaguars! We Enjoyed Celebrating Our 2021 Graduates

Jaguars Took the Trophy!

WINNERS!!!! The Battle of 4 Miles was a battle indeed, but the JAE staff took the title this year in the annual kickball game between Station Camp Elementary and Jack Anderson Elementary. They were certainly supported by a huge crowd of JAE Families! Thank you for joining us on such a fun night.
