JSE Tracks

Principal's Weekly News January 19th

Keeping you informed of all the "tracks" we make at school and in our community!


Happy Monday JSE Families!

We started off the day with our JSE news and our first JSE cheer of the new year! I would like to invite our students to join in our spirit day Fridays. Students can celebrate JSE every Friday by wearing our colors orange and green and/or wearing Bearcat spirit wear. I am looking forward to seeing all the orange and green!

Around the schoolhouse we have finished middle of the year benchmarking for Acuity in grades 3-5 and are heading into MClass for grades K-2. Both assessments provide us with information on student progress in specific standards and skills for classroom learning. We look forward to analyzing how our students have grown at each benchmark.

Your child still has time to reach his AR goal, we have extended our AR 2nd quarter by two days as a result of our snow days. We hope this supports everyone in working hard to accomplish their set goal.

The 2nd grading period ends this Friday and reports cards will go home the 22nd in Thursday Folders. With the 1st half of the school year coming to an end, our State Superintendent Glenda Ritz has released another video through the IDOE parent portal. The link is below.

Have a great week!
