Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,


On behalf of JMS and our Spanish teacher, Senora Ruiz, I want to thank sixth grader, Robbie, third grader, Micaih, and kindergartener, Maria for sharing a bit of the Spanish they have learned this year with our Board of Education at last night's meeting. These three students were joined by students from both Goshen and Warren, along with their teachers, Mr. and Mrs. Ruiz.



Progress Report Feedback

Please also take a moment to provide feedback on the progress report. The link to the survey is here. Results from this survey will be used to improve this communication tool. If you are interested in participating in a focus group, please provide your email address at the end of the online survey.



"It made me feel like everyone was family."

Based on all of the feedback I received and my own experience this week, our field trip to Chapter 126 was a big success! Students rotated through four stations: wheelchair basketball, navigating space without the use of sight, seated exercises, and assisting a visually impaired individual. The theme of the day was EMPATHY, and when asked to reflect afterward, the students shared wonderful feedback with their teachers and me (including 4th-grader, Mya's reflection above), confirming the effectiveness of the experience. For a glance at the experience, click here.
