Beta Holiday Canned Food Drive
East Jones Elementary Jr. Beta Club recently sponsored a school-wide canned food drive for the local Salvation Army. To promote participation, the Beta members awarded prizes for the top two classes, with Mrs. Sara Anderson’s 3rd grade class winning first place and Mrs. Jennifer Mozingo’s 5th grade class placing second. Once all cans were collected and totaled, the final count was over 1400 cans.  Sincere thanks go to all those who helped make this worthwhile project as our EJE Jr. Beta Club once again lived up to the national Beta moto of “Let us lead by serving others.”

Pictured left to right are Beta members: A. Gentry, J. Buckhaults, C. Crager, L. Burroughs

EJE Thankful for Fire Safety

Group picture of students holding thank you letters.

A BIG, thank you to our local Powers VFD, who recently came and talked to our students about the importance of fire safety. The students learned how to crawl to safety in case of a fire and how to stop-drop-and-roll if they were to ever catch on fire. They discussed being careful around matches, lighters, and gasoline. Students were given tips on how to run to safety and calling 911. The firefighters also showed the students what they looked like fully dressed so the kids wouldn't be scared if they saw them in a burning house trying to rescue them. Our tiger cubs enjoyed wrapping up the lesson with up close tours of the fire truck. After the visit, students in Mrs. Jessica Smith's class wrote thank you letters to all the amazing fire fighters that came to make this lesson so memorable.

Here are some pictures from Mr. Paul Anderson's 5th grade class projects on building cell models. Students had to include the cell parts from their notebooks in the LEGO model and the paper tube model, as well as including labels for the parts. This was an enrichment activity for STAR Reach days.

Important Reminders!

  • School Starts promptly at 7:45am. Any student arriving after will be marked tardy and will have to serve detention after three unexcused tardies. Please keep in mind that check in times later than 10:00am will result in an unexcused absence.
  • Early checkouts must be kept to a minimum. Unless it is absolutely necessary, your child should remain in school until dismissal time. As stated in the handbook, early withdraws are to be approved by the principal in order for withdrawal to be excused. Regular check out ends at 2:00pm as we begin the early dismissal process at that time. There will be no checkouts allowed after 2:00pm. No exceptions.
  • Transportation changes should not occur on a regular basis. If you must change transportation for your child, you must do so in writing and we must receive your note no later than 12:30pm.
  • Please make sure your child arrives at school with the necessary school supplies. If we are having fun day or days when the students may need spending money, you should send your child's money in an envelope and send it with them to school. The office staff will not accept any money in the office. Students will not be allowed to call home for supplies or money.
