Counselor's Corner

Mrs. Johnston, our school counselor, meets with each class on a monthly basis for a guidance lesson. JES focuses on a different Core Essential each month. The Core Essential for February is kindness, showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.

This month, our students will be making cards and table centerpieces for a local assisted living facility during art class. Thank you, Mrs. Katie Campbell, for helping with this opportunity for the students to do something kind for our senior citizens.
