Jaguar Corner

Hello Jaguars!

This edition of the Jaguar Update is dedicated to the men and women of our armed forces, past and present! We thank you for your service both here and abroad. Our staff has included pictures of their family members who have served in the military. The picture on the right is of my dad, Douglas Eugene Johnson, USMC. My dad served in the Vietnam Conflict from 1965-1969 (He is bottom row, center, third from right). Several local restaurants in the Kansas City Metro Area offer discounts to Veterans. You may see my dad at one of these restaurants!

- If you visited with any of these folks in the pictures presented, they would tell you they don't need the recognition and they were just doing their job. They would go on to tell you the real heroes are the soldiers who didn't come home. We honor all of you, and your families, for the courage and sacrifice you have made.

4th Grade History Project and Field Trip

Our 4th grade Jaguars recently took a field trip that included a tour of the Lee’s Summit History Museum and a walking tour of some local historical sites. The students learned about lifestyles and cultures of indigenous people and European explores who settled in Missouri and how to create a museum display that would reflect those cultures. Some of the projects are pictured below. After the field trip, we received a call from the Lee’s Summit History Museum recognizing our students for their wonderful behavior and attentiveness during the tours. Congratulations 4th grade, for using your POWER in an awesome way!

Book Fair is coming up!
