On Thursday, May 18, Mrs. Hackett’s 4th period 7th graders and The Black Student Union teamed up with The Home and School Association to plant in the school garden. Students planted to encourage tradition and a sense of community connecting the activity to the reading of “Brown Girl Dreaming” by Jacqueline Woodson and African-American culture and heritage. Thank you to Sandi Spindler who volunteered to lead in the process.

This is open to all JES students entering 1st through 6th who enjoy reading, story time, arts and crafts, cooking, special guests, and other creative activities. Campers may choose to come on Mondays & Tuesdays OR Wednesdays and Thursdays. We meet from 9:00 – 12:00. Tuition is $150 for the 4 weeks. Mrs. Heise and Mrs. Jones look forward to seeing old friends, and meeting students new this year. Registration forms currently available.
ES Coding Club’s first session (4th, 5th, and 6th grade) ended with a small graduation ceremony and fond farewells. The 3rd grade group is off to a wonderful and productive start, with a special surprise thrown in the mix! A special parent donated FOUR Sphero 2.0 robots for the students to experiment with. Now, students can physically apply what they’ve been learning digitally! Thank you for supporting this club. We look forward to its continued success and to student excitement and growth!
