Jesse Boyd Elementary School ~~~~ September 24, 2018

Greetings from Dr. Rose

Greetings from Jesse Boyd where we inspire and equip your students to become Jesse Boyd superstars this school year in a JBE Production. It is so very hard to believe that we are turning the page to October on Monday!!! We thank you all for a smooth beginning of school and helping us by getting your student to school on time each day (even 5 minutes earlier this year) and being on time to pick up your student each day.

Walking in and out of classrooms each day is part of my daily routine and I can tell you that our students are involved in rigorous educational activities, but they are having so much fun in their classroom communities. It is easy to see why there is no place I'd rather be than JBE!

School Make Up Pictures

On Wednesday, September 26th, we will have Make Up pictures. If your student was absent on our school picture day in August, they will have their picture made. For some of you, you may not have been satisfied with your student's pictures that were made in August. If you would like a "redo" of those pictures, please send a note to your student's teacher and we will have them redone on Wednesday.

Amazon Smile

Do you spend money on AMAZON? If so, why not help Jesse Boyd PTSO. You can use the link below and order away. PTSO will receive a percentage of your purchase. It is a win-win, but please know you have to sign into your Amazon account using Amazon Smile.

Donor's Choose is a nonprofit website that helps public school teachers get funding for materials and experiences that will help their students learn. Many Jesse Boyd teachers always have projects identified on this website. We welcome any donations to these projects. You can find all the JBE projects by following the link below. DONOR'S CHOOSE

Bruster's at Lunch

This Friday we will have Bruster's Italian Ice at lunch. We must have preorders. If your student would like Bruster's on Friday, we will need your prepayment by Wednesday, September 26th.

Golden Apple Award

As you are aware, we have amazing teachers at JBE. WYFF and Ingles, both JBE partners, recognize teachers every week. These recognitions come from parent or student nomination. See the form below for way to nominate one of our amazing JBE teachers.

Attention Reminders

Please be sure to bring notes with your student if he/she is absent. Additionally if you are late or leave early due to a doctor appointment, please ask your service provider for an excuse.

Wellness Policy

Just as a reminder of the Spartanburg School District 7 Wellness Policy that prohibits students receiving any food that is not on the approved snack list. That snack list can be found on the District's webpage.

This does mean that treats such as cupcakes, cookies, doughnuts are not allowed to give to an entire class. As always, you are allowed to bring anything for your own student.

The school is afforded several exemption days during the school year. We use those exemption days for our Halloween, Winter Holidays, and Valentine's parties as well as each grade level's "special celebration" day such as Western Expansion Day, Colonial Day, etc.

Duty Free Lunch

Do you have a 1/2 hour to help out once a month? Once a month, our PTSO provides coverage for our teachers during lunch so that they can have a "duty" free lunch. This may sound like a small thing, but each day our teachers eat lunch while monitoring students during lunch. This allows them to eat and plan with their grade level rather than eating with students. Please sign up for a time to help monitor.
