JRE School Garden Project
JRE was recently awarded a $3,700.00 grant from Lowes to begin our school garden this spring. The first phase of the school garden will consist of three raised garden beds. Each raised garden will have a different theme. These themes will be a pizza garden, a salsa garden, and salad garden. The second phase of the garden will include an area for butterflies, a sensory garden, birdhouses, bird feeders, bird baths and benches. We look forward to using this project to enhance the curriculum at JRE. We will get to a point where volunteers are needed and are hoping to work with our wonderful families regarding this matter. A special thank you goes out to Mrs. Schalmo for earning the grant for JRE.
JRE Career Day
JRE is looking forward to our Career Day which will be held on Tuesday, March 20th from 1:30 p.m.-3:05 p.m. Please click on this link if you are able to be a presenter on this day or know someone who would be interested in presenting. Please contact Mrs. Farnan with any questions you may have.
The second quarter AR reading acknowledgement is Monday, January 29th. Students who make their AR/reading goal and percentage for the quarter earn time in the bounce houses. Please click on the Sign-Up Genius Link if you are able to volunteer on this day. Any help is appreciated.
Hearts for Animals
It is once again time for our annual "Hearts for Animals" community service project in which the staff raffles off new stuffed animals to the students during the Valentine's Day Parties. We sell tickets the first week of February for this event. All proceeds from this project benefit the Monroe County Humane Society. As a school we usually raise over $800.00 each year. We would greatly appreciate any donations of new stuffed animals if you are able to help out. Please send any stuffed animals to the office by February 3rd. Thank you so much for all of your generosity.

Recess is provided for our students each day. Students should dress appropriately for all weather conditions. At the discretion of the principal, recess may be held indoors if the weather is too inclement or if the temperature/wind chill is at or below 15° F.
Lost & Found
Help the lost items become found items! Please mark your clothing, lunch boxes, etc., with names on the inside.
Drop Off/PickUp Safety
We would like to remind all parents to follow our procedures during morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Two areas of concern:
Parents creating their own parking spots in the fire lane.
Students exiting on the driver’s side of the car.
We appreciate everyone taking the time to follow the rules and keep our students and staff safe. Drivers not following procedures will be reported to the district liaison officer. We encourage everyone to ride the bus if it is available.
