Welcome Home Bash

The first annual Jessieville Schools Welcome Home Bash was a huge success! The event was well attended and everyone enjoyed the games, free school supplies, and free hot dogs. We want to thank the following sponsors for helping make this event a success: Jessieville Elementary PTO, Blue Springs Grill, Remax, Big Red Realty, Clampits Country Kitchen, Sonic, The Shack, Moser Construction, Linda Ragsdale, Ray's Sweet Ice, and the Army National Guard. See if you recognize yourself from in the photos below.

HSV Evening Lions Club Twinning Project

Jessieville School District was the recipient of a $1200 check from the Hot Springs Village Evening Lions Club and the North Notts Lions Club of England to be used for the purchase of a new eye testing machine.

For 15 years, the two clubs have partnered on different service projects. The two clubs have alternated selecting a service project for their home area each year with both clubs putting in about $600 towards the selected project. This year was the HSV Evening Lions Club's turn to select the project. They elected to help the Jessieville School District purchase a new piece of eye testing equipment for our students.

The attached photo is the presentation of the check for the eye testing equipment shown on the table in front of the group. The check was presented to Jessieville School Superintendent Melissa Speers. Presenting the check is the HSV Evening Lions Club president Jens Hjorth-Jensen. Jack Wells, George Parker, Karen Sterzik and Terry Sterzik were there to help make the check presentation.
