Canned Food Drive

We LOVE our Eagle Buddies!

A tradition at JNES each year is to adopt "Eagle Buddies" in the fall during football season. Each class is assigned an AHS football player and/or cheerleader. In the past few years, the football players are bused over Friday mornings where the Buddies visit classrooms, play games, read books, mentor students, and build relationships. The homeroom teachers and students often send goodie bags with treats and handmade cards of Good Luck for their Friday night games. This year, due to COVID, transportation and in-school visits were put on hold. We were forced to think outside the box and be creative in order to continue the tradition. We know how special these moments have been to not only our students but players as well. We can't wait to get back to normal, but until then, we will continue with Zoom sessions and window visits. We love our Golden Eagles!!
