Lunch With a Loved One Next Week!

Next Friday, September 24th will be our Lunch With a Loved One Event! You are invited to come have a picnic lunch with your child at John Sevier. The event will occur on the soccer field toward the west end of our building. Please bring a blanket or lawn chairs, and your own lunch. You may also bring something for your JSE student, or they can get a bag lunch from the cafeteria before coming outside to meet you. Each grade will have a designated area to meet with loved ones. Students will meet loved ones on the soccer field by their designated grade sign. Please go directly to the soccer field and find your grade level area to wait for your student. Parents may visit the book fair with their student after eating, but students are expected to return to class after the event, as teachers will still be having instruction in the afternoon.


See schedule below to know what time to arrive:

Name the JSE Fox!

We are giving our school fox mascot a new name! We are seeking ideas from JSE students, staff, and family members. Students may turn in suggestions to their teachers through September 17th. All you need to do is write the suggestion on a piece of paper with your child's first and last name and have them give it to their teacher. Students will get to vote on the top three name contenders between September 18th - September 24th. We will announce the name of our mascot on October 1st.

We encourage students to dress in fox themed items, JSE sprit wear, or school colors (Blue, Orange, & White) on October 1st. We will be calling this "Expect the Best" Day!
