December 16, 2018~~~ Jesse Boyd Elementary
Greetings from Dr. Rose
Our students have grown so much since those first few days of August. As I spend time in classrooms and with your students, I am reminded each day how our school is filled with leaders who are smart, caring, and kind. We have dedicated teachers and staff who work endlessly each day to help make sure your student reaches his/her potential. Along the way, we have a lot of fun. It is important to us that your student loves coming to school. We want students to feel like JBE is their second home. It is valuable that we capture their hearts because not only are we teaching them English, Math, Social Studies, and Science, we are teaching them to love learning. If we can teach them to love learning, they will never stop. We find that to be very important, because we know that engaged students learn more.
We do hope that you and your family have an enjoyable holiday season. While we are excited about staying up late, spending time with family, sleeping in a little, possible travel, and time away from lesson plans, grading, and examining data, we are also looking forward to our 2nd semester and the work that we will do together with your student. We will also miss our students. It is my hope that each of you have a happy, safe, and enjoyable holiday.
We had a very high completion rate of E-learning assignments. We thank you for assistance in getting those assignments done during those days out of school.
Arrest in Hit- and- Run

This Week at JBE
Those of you who are returning families, you are probably looking forward to this type of thing from our staff. For those of you new to JBE, this may seem a bit odd, but it goes back to our idea that engaging our students in school will only increase their learning.
Wednesday will be our Polar Express Day. Students will be working in their Production Companies on Wednesday. Students are more than welcome to join the staff by wearing pajamas to school on Wednesday.
On this note, please be aware that Friday morning's car line may take a little longer than usual. Not much can be said about the carline just yet, but we may just have to let go of our "no cell phone usage in carline" policy for just one day.
