Welcome to a new school year at John C. Myers Elementary School! We kicked off the 1st day of school yesterday with lots of smiles and happy faces (see pictures at the bottom of this newsletter). We plan our first School Spirit Day for this Friday, August 24 so please have your child wear his/her new JCM Clarence t-shirt if possible!
Online registration forms launched Tuesday night, August 22nd. ALL students must have online forms completed in addition to the handbook form that was signed on Fee Day. An email containing a unique link for each child was sent to the first email address listed on the parent notification form. While registration forms can be completed on any device with internet access, if you would prefer to use a computer and do not have access, the school computer lab will be open for parents on Monday, August 27th from 4pm-8pm. An administrator will be at the school that night to assist. Please have all forms completed by the end of the week or make plans to come to school Monday evening before 8pm.
We are looking forward to another great year at John C. Myers Elementary School. We are always just a phone call away if you have a need or concern this school year!
Jakes in the News
You can receive information about JCM by following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (see links below). Also this year, we will be utilizing school-wide parent email for more communication. A weekly email will be sent from our PTA with upcoming PTA events. The school will also send a daily email with events and announcements. Text messages will be used for important, more brief communication. The "Smore" will be distributed periodically to highlight specific events but not necessarily on a month-to-month basis.
Teachers will continue to use multiple means of communication including any of the following: Classroom Dojo, Seesaw, and newsletters.
If at any time you have concerns regarding communication with the school, please call an administrator to discuss.
Important Attendance Information
Volunteers new to the WatchDOG program should email Erin Branner, assistant principal, if they are unable to attend to set up another time to review guidelines for the program.
