Last Week of School!

Principal's Message

Your life is a sacred Journey. You are on the path! ~Caroline Adams

I am simply amazed that out of 7. 3 Billion people in the world, all of our lives crossed at J. N. Ervin Elementary School for the 2014-2015 school year!

Thank you for a wonderful school year filled with laughs, cries, talks, attitudes, and a plethora of questions from me :-). It is because of each and everyone of you that I've grown as a leader and pushed myself to work out of my comfort zones.

You all have unique talents and gifts that I've learned from and I thank you for sharing them with me. I wish the best for each of you and I thank you for being a part of my journey!

Always J. N. Ervin Proud!

T. P. Barnett

This Week's Expectations

We are still in school! Thank you for teaching and conducting business as usual this week (LOs, DOLs, Student Engagement, Actively Monitoring, etc.,.).

We still have students who are not reading on grade level and students who can be challenged and preparing for the next grade level. We also have spot observations that must be completed by June 4th.

Thank you for continuing with your same structure, expectations, and intense instructional focus to keep the students engaged all week!

Gentlemen - please help assist in the mornings and after school on duty posts.
