News from the Jack Anderson PTO

Join us for our last PTO meeting of the 2018-2019 school year on Thursday, May 16th at 9:30. We will be voting on next year's PTO Board.

2nd Annual JAE vs. SCE Kickball Game

This Thursday night you won't want to miss out on the fun. Your favorite staff members from JAE will be battling against staff members from Station Camp Elementary. They barely beat us last year, but this time we are going to win!!


We will have some very special announcers and umpires helping us throughout the game. All American Erin and the gang from Boosterthon will be joining us.


We hope to see you there! The game will kickoff at 6:00 on the SCHS Softball Field. The spirit shop will be open!

A Huge Thank You

We had a wonderful group of Riverchase community members who worked tirelessly on Saturday morning pulling and spraying weeds, scooping rubber mulch back onto the playground, and trimming shrubs. They have adopted our school so to speak, and they will continue to assist us over the summer and throughout next school year.

Field Day Awesomeness

Coach Hellman and Coach Massey pulled off another amazing field day. They spent countless hours organizing schedules and setting up events. Thankfully, the weather cooperated with us- the day was near perfect. It was great to see so many friends and family members in attendance!

Honoring Dr. Jennifer Brown

Dr. Jennifer Brown, former Assistant Director of Sumner County Schools, was a hero to many educators. She lost her battle to cancer earlier this year.


She loved roses almost as much as she loved Sumner County Schools, so it just makes sense that we should create a rose garden in her memory. Mr. Ron Daniels helped Dr. Brown with her rose garden and has graciously offered to help with ours at JAE. He will be teaching students to test soil as well as prune, fertilize, and propagate roses. Students will plant our first roses in our garden this week.

Please Pick Up Medications

If your child has medicine(s) in the school clinic, it must be picked up no later than May 22, 2019 by a parent or a designated adult. All unclaimed medications will be disposed of following dismissal on this day.
