This week!

We've been busy these first few days of school! Kids learned how to walk their schedules, open their lockers, met their new teachers, met their new classmates, learned about expectations throughout the building, and had loads of fun!!! Last week we sent everyone the welcome back video and presentation. We're including them below for anyone who may have missed them!

Be the Reason....

This year's district theme is "Be the Reason." This theme is intended to inspire others to be someone else's reason... You can be a reason someone feels, valued, heard, supported, cared for, accepted and loved! This year we want to shout out all of our students for "Being the Reason" we all have had a great start to the year. We know they are our reason we love our jobs so much. Thank you for raising such wonderful children!


Help us continue to celebrate your child by filling out a Celebrate Mondays form to include in our Monday morning announcements. You could also email us directly if you have pictures or anything else you would like to share! and

Do you know a staff member that goes Above and Beyond the Call of Duty Everyday? Then nominate them for an ABCDE award so they could be recognized for all their hard work!

Bus stop and transportation details are available through the Ride 360 app. Please download the Traversa Ride 360 phone application in order to receive your child’s route information. Updates to your child’s bus route throughout the year will be communicated through the Ride 360 app. Directions on how to download and sign in to the app can be found on the Transportation website. Notifications regarding late buses will only be sent through this phone application during the school year.

Car Riders and Parent Pick up Reminders - All students should be dropped off and picked up in the back of the building. Please do NOT block driveways for our families if you are backed up on Royal Georgian Dr. Leave space so they can still enter and exit their homes.

Social Work Corner

Here at Jerling we believe it's important that we teach the whole child. We do this by saying our Jayhawk Pledge below every morning! In this section of our newsletter we will include tips, lessons, and activities to support Social Emotional Learning of our students.
