Ram Roundup - Family Monthly Newsletter

Welcome Back....

Hello Families,

On behalf of the JBES faculty/staff, we would like to welcome everyone back to the most exciting school year at our school. Each month, all JBES families will receive a monthly newsletter from the school. Here, you will be informed about upcoming dates as well as what is occurring in the school.

As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together so that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment for the success of all our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at JBES. Whether you are a classroom volunteer or a member of the PTO, you are encouraged to be involved! Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. Up-to-date and additional information will appear on our school's web page. Additionally, we will send out a parent monthly newsletter. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to reach out. We look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with all families at JBES.

In Service,

LeVar Jenkins, Principal

Kristina Kellogg, Assistant Principal

John Burroughs Elementary School
