Jack Anderson Elementary STEM
August 12-16, 2019
Are You Registered with Skyward?
This is also where you can locate your student ID number. This number is important for online meal payments or meal benefits. If you have not registered your new student online, he or she does not have an ID number.
182 returning students have not yet registered, and 45 new students have not completed the process. Please take time to complete the steps this weekend so that your child is up to date in the system. If you need assistance, please contact Rachelle Phelps on Monday. Rachelle.email@example.com 615-264-5830
Please access the JAE Website jae.sumnerschools.org if you need directions for registering your new or returning student.
Registration Documentation and Proofs
After you complete the registration process, your child's information can be right in the palm of your hand. I am able to access attendance and grades for all three of my kids with the press of a button.
To find out your child's ID number, Click the 3 horizontal lines at the top right corner, and choose Student Information. Look for Other ID.
Parent Orientation This Week: 8-12, 8-13, 8-15 from 6:00-7:00 p.m.
Please join our teachers this week to get the scoop on your kids' classes. Come sit in your child's seat, and find out what he or she will be learning this year.
This is a time to connect and find answers to questions you may have. For this reason, students are not invited to Parent Orientation. Please find childcare for this hour so you can take advantage of this opportunity.
The JAE Spirit Shop will be open, so you will be able to stock up on new apparel for the whole family.
Monday: Kindergarten & 1st Grade
Tuesday: 2nd & 3rd Grade
Thursday: 4th & 5th Grade

Jack Anderson Elementary is not responsible for bus changes or delays in transportation. When we are alerted to changes, a notification is sent through the JAE App as a courtesy.

You will need to contact Transportation with those concerns.
If your child brings a lunch to school, please make sure he or she has all necessary items such as utensils, cup or water bottle, etc. Also, it is helpful to pack items in containers or packaging that is easy to open for students.

Kindergarten Parents May Walk Students to Class This Week
Beginning at 8:20, parents of K students may accompany them to the door of their classrooms. Please take a picture and say your goodbyes at the door. It is a big week for our students, and it is a BIG week for their teachers, too. It will help us get our day started if you say a quick goodbye, and let these sweet kids spread their wings and soar into a great learning experience.
You will need to sign in with our Lobby Guard in the front office upon arriving. It is helpful to have your license ready. Federal Nutrition Guidelines prohibit bringing outside restaurant or fast food items to share with your child during lunch.
When your child gets to the cafeteria, you may accompany him/her through the cafe line (if needed,) and sit at one of the tables in the cafeteria lobby. There is not enough room in the cafeteria to accommodate all of our students and guests.
Please see the Student Handbook for more information about visiting for lunch with your child.

We want your child to come to school dressed comfortably and not have apparel distractions that may impede learning. Thank you for monitoring your child and helping your child abide by the dress code. The following shall NOT be worn to school: shorts that are shorter than three inches above the knee, spandex shorts, shorts with writing on the back, cut off jeans that are frayed or with pockets showing, clothing with holes, saggy/sagging pants, leggings or leotards unless with appropriate length skirt or dress, suggestive slogans, pictures or ads of tobacco or alcoholic products or drug paraphernalia, caps, hats, scarves or bandanas, strapless dresses or blouses, spaghetti strap dresses, bare midriff, halters or tank tops, backless shoes (sandals with a back strap are permitted), cleated shoes, shoes with rollers, flip flops, clothing related to gangs, extreme hair color or style that results in classroom disruption. Jewelry may not be distracting or disruptive.
Car Line Reminders
Currently, we have 868 students at JAE. The most important job of the administrative team and our entire staff is to keep all of them safe, especially during the busy arrival and dismissal periods.
Help us keep our students and staff safe by following a few simple rules.
* Do not use the bus entrance to drop off your students. Enter next to the JAE sign, go around the back playground loop, and drop off or pick up in front of the school.
* Do not cut through between the playground and school. This area is for staff, buses, and Jags' Treehouse only.
* Do not switch lanes when leaving campus.
* Remember to put your phones down.
* The front parking lot is not for drive-thru drop off or an opportunity to avoid the car line. If you park, you must accompany your child to the crosswalk.
* Never drop off at the end of the building. Last week a few students were seen walking from the side of the building by themselves. If your child is a car rider, he or she must be dropped off in the front of the building unless you are walking alongside them.
3rd-5th Grade Cross Country
The deadline to sign up for the JAE cross country team is August 15th. Cross country is available to all 3rd-5th grade students. If you have any questions, please email Coach Hellman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
