Explore @ Jarrett

Need to Know...for now!

Mr. Jaymes Wapp

I am excited to be the principal for Explore at Jarrett this summer. I am currently the Coordinator of Site Intervention at Reed Academy and Pleasant View Middle School. I have served as a leader in the SPS summer program at Pipkin (2013) as an administration intern and at Parkview High School (2015) as assistant principal. I am currently working on my Ed.D. of Educational Leadership in Curriculum & Instruction at Evangel University.

I look forward to working with the Jarrett community this summer. I am excited to see students engaged in the opportunities SPS has created for Explore 2016.


What to expect in the weeks leading up to Explore:

-Look for an invite on Canvas; all required videos or important info will be placed in Canvas.

-Keep an eye out for a packet regarding training prior to Explore

-Logistics will be settled by the end of next week: room assignments, schedule, duties, & technology

-Feel free to contact me with any questions. I will do my best to provide or find the right answer

-That's right we are adding 2 kiddos to our family this summer. Don't worry, there is a substitute in place for Baby Wapp's arrival! Wendi Biesemeyer, CSI at Jarrett & Carver, will be filling in when I am gone.

Teacher Training

Monday, May 23rd, 12am to Tuesday, May 24th, 12am

It is my understanding you will be receiving a packet regarding training before Explore. Teachers will attend a training session on either 5/23 or 5/24. I plan on being at Jarrett both days, so feel free to stop by and arrange your room, check supplies/curriculum, and prepare lessons.

Staff Meeting

Wednesday, May 25th, 8-10am

840 South Jefferson Avenue

We will have a short staff meeting in the library at 8:00am. I will provide a small breakfast. I have been told the expectation is for 2 hours of professional development and work on this date. After 10:00am, you may stay and prep your room as needed until 2:45pm.
