A Message from the Principal

Hi Jag Family,

We only have six weeks of school left, but there is still so much learning to do. Please encourage your students to continue giving their best effort at school and to study hard to finish the year strong. We are so grateful that we have been able to have face-to-face school this year. Thank you for trusting us with your children.

Testing begins on April 26th. It is imperative that students are well rested and have a good breakfast each day. Please refrain from absences and check-ins during the testing window. Our students have worked so hard this year. We know they will make you proud.

Due to the cleaning requirements between each program, we will only have Kindergarten and 5th Grade Awards days open to families this year. All 1st - 4th grade Awards days will be held in the classrooms and will be closed to parents. Please see more information below. Thank you for your understanding.

We hope you and your family have a fantastic month!


Lauren Kennedy, Principal

Reading Buddies

5th Graders, Rylan Ross and Ricky Pierce presented the idea for "Reading Buddies" to Mrs. Kennedy earlier this year. They wanted to partner with Kindergarteners to act as role models - and also read with them to help them succeed in school. They worked with the kindergarten teachers and planned for the cleanest environment possible to keep everyone safe. Last month, "Reading Buddies" began! It has been a huge success, and we hope to keep it going for years to come.

Our Jags are full of wonderful ideas. We are so thankful that they are bold enough to share them with us! We could not be more proud of Rylan and Ricky!

Jag Bistro - Always so much fun!!
