My Friday News is being sent today due to Powerschool maintenance over the weekend! I hope everyone had a restful weekend and is ready for a great week!
Last week, we celebrated the National Anthem by having the TAHS Chamber Choir lead us in singing around the flagpole. Everyone sounded amazing! It was fun to see lots of red, white, and blue!
Also, JWES students finished collecting coins for Global Giving to assist those affected by Hurricane Harvey. We will be sending a check in the amount of $830.55 to help those in need! JWES students truly are working hard to demonstrate our school wide theme of making this great big world a better place! I am so proud of everyone!
We also had around 100 students walk to school on Friday! It was a terrific turnout! JWES will participate in walk to school day each month on the third Friday.
This year, students will continue to learn and practice reading strategies in their classes. Our first school wide strategy is based on the character, Carey the Careful Connector, who makes connections when reading. On Wednesday, September 20, everyone in the school is invited to dress as a construction worker or builder to recognize this reading strategy.
Friday, September 22, will be the Fall Fun Run! Students will be running and walking laps during their specials times. Please be watching for information to be coming home this week.
