EJE Visits Bar-T

On Friday, September 30, EJE Student Council attended a leadership building trip to Bar-T Adventures. The students participated in team building activities which helped to build individual confidence and team work initiatives. Not only did these students learn how to work collectively as a group, they also had loads of fun on the zip lines and ropes courses.

Comparison: John Midas Vs King Midas at EJE

EJE Students Receive Storyworks Subscriptions

Mrs. Julie Walley and Mrs. Jennifer Mozingo, along with their students at EJE, want to share their appreciation and excitement with everyone. Howard Industries wrote a grant to Scholastic to purchase a Storyworks subscription for each 5th grader at East Jones Elementary! We would like to extend a great big thanks to Ms. Otha Keys, NBCT, Library Media Specialist at South Jones Jr.-Sr. High School. Ms. Keys wrote the request, submitted it, received the payment, paid the bill, and handled all the contact with Scholastic in order to get the subscription for our students. Finally, we would like to thank Ms. Belinda Pickering for handling the request and to Mrs. Linda Howard at Howard Industries for approving the donation to purchase the Storyworks subscription for our 5th graders! Because of your generosity, we now have additional resources needed to enhance instruction of our students. We are truly grateful to you.

EJE Integer Soup

East Jones Elementary students in Mrs. Shai Holder and Mrs. Jana Byrd's 6th grade math classes had fun learning about adding and subtracting integers. After a mythical story was read, students used red and yellow chips to represent cold (negative) and (hot) positive numbers. Students used the chips to represent temperature soup in a cauldron. Hopefully this introductory lesson will help them draw a connection to the rules for adding and subtracting integers.
