Support Program"High 5"
Respect the Environment
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

North Jones sixth grade Star Reach students are busy creating polymers and testing them. During the “Polymer Science” unit the students must perform various tests on the polymers to discover their specific characteristics. Students are also learning that not all polymers are man-made but that some polymers are part of nature.
In Star Reach the 5th graders are working on a Roller Coaster STEM unit. The students made marshmallow shooters to learn about force. The students took their shooters outside and had competitions to see who could shoot their marshmallows the farthest.
Thank you to the Laurel Rotary Club for giving every 3rd Grader a new dictionary.

Students in Mrs. Mobley's third grade Math class worked
in the hallway to find the area of plane figures.
Students used tiling, repeated addition, and multiplication to find each figure's area.
The students in Miss Chandler's 6th grade Social Studies class spent Friday, September 11, 2015, learning about the events of 9/11 and how they impacted our nation. The students read an article that gave a quote from President Obama that stated, "Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost-a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11." In honor of those that died on 9/11, the students in Miss Chandler's class spent time cleaning the school as their 9/11 service project.
Thank you for your contribution!
We appreciate your support.
The fourth grade classes have started the year off learning about plants. The students in Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Pierce’s classes dissected plants to identify all the parts of a plant. The students enjoyed brushing the loose dirt away to find the roots. They were also able to identify the stem, leaves, and flowers. Some students were surprised to find other things hiding in the dirt like caterpillars and worms. This hands-on activity was a fun learning experience for the children.
