Welcome to North Jones Elementary...


School-Wide Positive Behavior Support Program"High 5"


High Five

Respect Myself
Respect Others
Respect the Environment
Be Safe
Be Ready to Learn


Our school-wide behavior management approach here at North Jones is "High 5". It is a school-wide system of supports that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors in our school environment. Throughout this system, a continuum of positive behavior support for all our students is implemented in areas including the classroom and non-classroom settings (hallways, cafeteria, bus, restrooms, and playground).

The school focus is to shift the emphasis from being reactive in addressing behaviors and social skills to being proactive in prevention.  We, as a building and community, emphasize the teaching of appropriate behaviors through modeling, teaching, activities, and positive rewards.

The NJE Star Reach fifth graders enjoyed a recent visit from Dr. Kris Lightsey, who spoke to them about Engineering. He presented a PowerPoint and gave them a hands-on challenge to complete! We appreciate Dr. Lightsey investing his time and expertise in our students.

Ms. Boone’s sixth grade students read the book Hoot.  One of the major themes of the book was “Protecting the Environment”.   In Ms. Williams’s science class, the students took an endangered species quiz online and discovered their inner animal.   Then they researched their endangered species and did a project.  The 6th grade students presented their information to their classmates.

Mrs. Sims’s 2nd grade star reach class was doing a unit on endangered species.  The 6th grade students presented their endangered animals to the star reach students.   The 6th grade students learned so much from their research about the environment and endangered species, and in turn they were able to teach and share the information to the 2nd grade gifted students.




Fourth grade Star Reach students at NJE have been involved in a unit on immigration.

After listening to a story, Everybody Cooks Rice, students practiced the art of Chinese writing on

rice paper and practiced the use of chopsticks in eating food.

Students in Mrs. Merritt's  and Mrs. Davis's 5th grade science classes dissect Lima beans

while learning about reproduction in living organisms.

Second Grade Star Reach students have been studying and researching Endangered Species. Students completed a booklet

including information of each animal's habitat, diet, physical description, lifespan, size, where they live,

what part of the world they live and reason for endangerment.

Students also completed a mask of each researched endangered animal.
