JSE Weekly Newsletter

March 29 - April 2

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures!

Class photos will be taken on Tuesday, April 6th. This is the first day back after the upcoming 4 day weekend, so set a reminder now so you can remember to dress your best! Class photo orders must be turned in by April 6th and will be submitted to the photographer the day the pictures are taken. (The order forms should have been sent home in last week's Friday folders. A copy of the form is below also.) Digital teachers are planning unique ways to prepare a class photograph for each of the digital classes so those students do not need to try to come in for this event!

***Picture orders from individual portraits arrived at the school last week and should have been sent home with your student. Please note, that if you have siblings in the school and placed an ONLINE order for both, they were likely grouped together.***

Announcement for Parents with Pre-School Aged Children

Maryville City Schools will offer pre-kindergarten classes at each elementary school next year. Each classroom will be an integrated pre-K (IPK) program where children from families who meet income requirements learn alongside children with disabilities and peer models. The IPK will be a program that offers preschoolers with and without disabilities challenging experiences through a curriculum emphasizing social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development. Pre-Kindergarten applications are being accepted NOW for children whose families meet income eligibility requirements.

Details of the program and applications may be found at:


(Applications are under the Application Forms Tab - "Integrated PreK Application"

Applications may also be found at all elementary schools in the front office starting Monday, March 1.
