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 January is responsibility, proving you can be trusted with what is expected of you.

Weekly Wellness Screening for FTF Students

Please complete the state-required Weekly Wellness Screening in Skyward Family Access every Sunday before 6:00 pm. This will help make your child's Monday morning much smoother. Students who do not have this survey filled out will be screened by our nurse, which could result in a delay to the start of their school day.
