Welcome to North
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. Our building's High Five rules for all
students to recognize in school are as follows:
Respect the Environment
Ready to Learn
See You at the Pole

students at North Jones Elementary chose to participate once
again in the National Bicycling Poster Contest sponsored
by MDOT. The contest helps to promote students to ride
their bicycles in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The
winner chosen to represent North Jones Elementary in the state
contest was Ahleeona Richardson. Richardson's poster
will proceed to the state contest to compete against other
fifth grade students from across the state of Mississippi. The
winner for Mississippi will then proceed to the national
competition for the chance to win a trip to Washington, D.C.

Free Dictionaries for Third graders
Choctaw Days were held at the
Lauren Rogers Museum of Art for fourth graders all of the state.
They were expected to have over a 1000 students participating. The
students were given an indoor tour of the Native American baskets
and a "hands-on" demonstration of various weaving techniques.
The students were also allowed to visit several outdoor stations
such as bead stringing, yarn printing, paper weaving, etc. They
really enjoyed tasting the fry bread and participating in the
Native American dances on the front lawn.
Owl pellet lab was a culmination to
a science unit on animals. The unit included vocabulary such as
herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores, as well as
producers, consumers, predators, and prey. The students
enjoyed dissecting owl pellets and discovering the skeletal
remains of its prey. Students found and identified the bones of
rodents and made inferences about their particular owl's diet.
What a fun way to end such an interesting unit of study!
Grade Students at North Jones Elementary presented "This Is
America" on Veteran's Day to honor the Veterans in our families

and our flag. The songs and spoken parts gave facts about our
country and it's fight for freedom. The ending to the program was
an acappella arrangement of "The Star Spangled Banner" which was
sung by Tyra Page. After the program, the students were able to
meet several Veteran's and give them a small flag as a gesture of
