Getting the Message out!

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

Orton Gillingham Tutoring


Multi-sensory activities promote learning and retention of important reading/language skills in Pam Walters' tutoring lab. Students make "The /er/ Triplets" to reinforce the concept that er, ir and ur make the same sound /er/.  Students also learn to recognize and read letters, identify sounds, blend letters to read words, divide words into syllables, read sight words and nonsense words, and many other reading/language skills using sand, foam, and other kinesthetic activities.


Great Behavior Rewards


The hard working EJE students in Ms. Pam Walters tutor group receive a small reward (treasure box or candy) once a week and they also have their group's name placed in a drawing each time their group works together, listens, and maintains a positive attitude in the tutoring lab. Ms. Walters draws a winner to choose a Group of the Month. The group receives the snacks they would like and enjoy a small treat/party. A picture of the group is also featured in Ms. Walters tutor group's monthly newsletter.



EJE Beta Members Greet Pre-Registering Kindergarten Students


Each elementary school in the Jones County School District recently hosted Registration for all students entering K5 in the fall of 2014.  In an effort to present a pleasant, welcoming experience, East Jones Elementary Jr. Beta  members greeted all EJE parents and students, escorted them around campus, and presented the K5 students with balloons, pencils, and candy.  The day was filled with excitement as these students had their first experience on the East Jones Campus.  Special thanks to the EJE Jr. Beta members for adding the “extra touch” to this special event.


Beta Convention Winner

East Jones Elementary is proud to announce that Beta Member, Jacob Taylor, won third place in the Division I Mathematics Competition at the State Jr. Beta Convention. This year's convention was held recently in Tupelo, Mississippi. Jacob competed against numerous students from schools all over the state of Mississippi. Congratulations Jacob!! EJE is proud to have you represent our school and Jr. Beta Club!

4th Grade Poetry Projects

EJE 4th Grade students in the language arts classes of Mrs. Lori Oas & Brandie Brooks created cinquain and diamante poems on the topic of their choice.  From sports to flowers and people to animals, students enjoyed constructing their own poems.  Students were very creative and decorated posters to display their poetry.  The 4th grade classes enjoyed presenting and sharing their poetry creations.

Mission Intermodal Excellence

EJE Gifted teachers, Mrs. Melinda Anderson and Mrs. Genny Walley, both received acceptance letters Saturday for the Mission Intermodal Excellence workshop in June hosted by the Bagley College of Engineering at Mississippi State University. Only 20 teachers across the state are accepted each year. During the four days, these ladies will visit the Fed Ex distribution center in Memphis, enter the lock and dam by boat in Columbus on the Tombigbee River, and visit the AmTrak station in Meridian. In addition, MSU will put on a parent/student engineering night at our school during the 2014-2015 school year, with all materials provided. At the parent night, parents and students will work together to solve engineering challenges. Congratulations to these two excellent teachers and thank you for all you do at EJE!
