The Principal's Corner

Hello Johnson Families!
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We are off to a great start! Johnson is a very loving school and we are so glad to have your child or children be a student in our school. We work very hard to ensure your children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for your children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. If you are available to volunteer at Johnson, please let your child's teacher know and we can connect you with our PTO Co-chairs. Also, please make sure you join PTO. The PTO membership dues are $10 per child. The membership dues are used for other special events the PTO has and Staff Appreciation.


We have many wonderful things plan for this school year and look forward to working with you!


Sincerely,
Tosha Robinson Baugh, Principal

Throughout the year we will have Spirit Nights at local restaurants to help raise money for JES. Each location will give a percentage back to the school. You will need to say you are from JES to make sure we get our percentage. This is a night you don't have to cook and can support JES!


Our first Spirit Night is at Taziki's on Thursday, August 26th from 4-9:00! You can even order ahead of time if you would like to. Please see the flyer below for more information!
