We are excited to start the new school year with "Back To School Night," from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 30. We hope that all our parents and students will come and meet their teachers and find out what is happening in their classroom this year.
We will have our PTO, scouting, chorus, band, ELL community support information and other information available for sign-ups in the cafeteria on that night.
We have had many staff changes and look forward to starting out this year with our new construction completed and our building and ground improvements finished for us all to enjoy.
Our PTO is still very active and has installed new equipment on both our playgrounds this summer and a student garden was built for all to enjoy. Thank you for the donations of the Rock Yard, Payson Concrete, Roy Haught Excavation, and Stan's Haulers to make our wonderful new garden for JRE.
We have purchased Accelerated Math to use with our fourth- and fifth-grade students, which will be a great addition for our teachers and students. We are planning to continue with many of our annual events such as the schoolwide book parade Oct. 31 and Young Author's Day.
The After-school program will begin after the fall break and will provide great opportunities for our students at a minimal cost to parents.
The JRE staff is looking forward to the new year and is excited to get to know all of our students and their parents.
