Happy Holidays from Your Friendly Elves on the Shelf!
Walk to School
This fall the PE department received another $1,000 grant from the Virginia Safe Routes to School organization to help build up our JCMES Walk to School program. We used the money to purchase signs to promote our "First of the Month" Walk to School mornings - be on the lookout for them around our community! We hope these signs will serve as a reminder to parents that the Walk to School mornings are happening as well as serve as a caution to drivers that there will be a increased number of pedestrians on the sidewalks and crosswalks.

From the PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) Committee…
The PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) Committee is excited about our fall school-wide positive behavior incentive 'You're a Wonder...#ChooseKind'. It is centered around the recently released movie 'Wonder' in which a fifth grade boy, with facial differences, attends a mainstreamed school for the first time. JCMES students who 'chose kind' will be sent to the office with a positive behavior slip to receive a 'Wonder' prize. They will then add their 'kind slip' to the display wall across from the cafeteria. This reward incentive will continue until December 20.
Join us as we 'choose kind'...
News from the Library
We had a great book fair in November! Thanks to everyone who supported it-- we will be able to purchase some great new books for everyone to enjoy.
Start saving those Box Tops-- after Christmas, we will have our annual Box Tops contest. Bring in at least 10 box tops to get your name entered in a drawing for some great prizes! Each box top is worth 10 cents and it really adds up to help us buy new games and technology for the library.
Winter Break will be here soon! Students with no overdue library books will be able to check out extra books to tide them over on Winter Break! Please check at home for any overdue books. Thank you!

Myers faculty and staff also support the United Way with donations, volunteering, and special fundraising events.
We invite families who wish to join our staff efforts to raise funds for United Way to add a dollar or two to the United Way bucket on the counter in the office!
