It's a Marvelous Monday at JSE!

This week we celebrate our Student Council Leaders, Student Media Center Aides, and Office Helpers! 4th and 5th graders have the opportunity to volunteer their time as student leaders contributing to the daily schoolhouse operations.

Student Council is collecting donations to join in contributing to our Greater South Shore Conference Athletic Director’s Jar Wars fundraising effort to help the Red Circle Foundation. The Red Circle Foundation is an organization dedicated to supporting the families of our U.S. Military Special Operations Forces heroes who have been wounded or killed in the line of duty. If you are able to support our efforts, please send contributions with your child by Wednesday in an envelope marked for the foundation. Every little bit helps!

Friday all students and staff will participate in the Northwest Indiana Literacy Coalition "Put Your Nose in a Book", time out for reading event at 10am. We join schools and communities across Indiana in modeling the essential habit of daily reading. I have included a couple websites below. RESEARCH says...at least 20 minutes a day!

We appreciate you reinforcing 20 a day at home as well. If you have any questions about your child's reading leveled AR books or how to support your child's reading efforts at home please let us know.

READ 20!
