Notes from the office

E-book Update

The library is changing the ebook and eaudio reading platform from Destiny to Overdrive. In order to make this transfer, all ebook or eaudio access will be disabled as of 3:00, Monday, April 12. If your child is in the middle of a book, unfortunately he or she will not be able to finish it after 3:00 on Monday. Information how to use Overdrive will be sent as soon as the transfer is complete. The process will take about 10 days.

Spring Calendar Change

The Board of Trustees has approved four additional planning/professional development half days for the Spring semester for our teachers. The following dates will be half days at school.

  • February 26, 2021
  • March 12,2021
  • April 16, 2021
  • April 30, 2021

On these dates, the first half of the day will be a normal day for both in-person and DVA students, while the afternoon will now be an asynchronous learning half-day for all students, regardless of enrollment in DVA or in-person learning. Our teachers will use the afternoon half-days as planning time/professional development.

Box Tops for Education App

Download the Boxtops for Education app and Johnson Elementary can earn 10 cents for every "boxtop" on your receipt (think cereal boxes, macaroni and cheese, and more!). Every "boxtop" adds up for our school. In the past, families have clipped boxtops and sent them in for redemption. But NOW, you can download the app "Boxtops for Education", scan your receipt, and we earn a little bit off of your purchases. THANK YOU in advance for your support!

Birthday Treats

Due to Covid-19, the district is only allowing district provided birthday treats this year. Please see the link below for more information!
