5th Grade Promotion

Our 5th graders are super excited about their promotion ceremony on Tuesday. This is a special time to recognize the exceptional academic and extracurricular successes of our students.

The promotion ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. Please plan to arrive early if you will be attending.

Monday is Pajama Day at JAE!

A very special second grader, Teagan Brown, was Principals' Assistant for the Day on May 7th. She had the choice of declaring a Pajama Day or giving each class extra recess. She chose a PJ Day! So May 21st will be PJ Day thanks to auction winner, Teagan Brown.

Cafeteria Reminders

Please make sure to pay any balances owed on your student's cafeteria account. Right now our unpaid balance is $350.00. Please help us to reduce this amount so we can end the year at a zero balance.


A few reminders:

Allergy forms will be available from the nutrition department during registration. These may be taken and completed by your child's physician.

Also, if your child receives lunch benefits, you will need to re-apply at registration. Applications must be completed yearly. Forms will be available at Mrs. Osborne's table or you may re-apply online.
