Student Achievement Awards!

Here is a photo of our Student Achievement winners for last week!  These students were at school, on time everyday!  They turned in their homework on time and perfectly done.  They were safe, respectful and responsible; ensuring they were on task and completing their assignments and behaving according to the James John School expectations at all times.  Isn't that awesome?  Nice job everyone!  You are model students for others to see.  There are several students who were very close, but might have been late to school one day or forgotten to do one of their homework assignments.  Let's all get an award this week!

The Book Fair and Author Ann Cameron!

Today the students got to visit with Ms Ann Cameron, the author of some of the best books for young readers with her 'Julian and Huey' series.  We love them.  Ms Cameron shared her love of reading and writing and told how she started writing seriously when she was in 3rd grade.  She said she loves writing because it takes her places she never imagined she would go.  This all happened during Ms Rolfe's amazing James John Book Fair.  If you haven't come in to the Book Fair yet it will be open tomorrow until 7:00!  Thank you Ms Cameron for coming in and sharing your wonderful art with us all! 

Our 150 Point Free Recess!

The students used teamwork to earn their free recess yesterday. They accumulated 150 points over the last several weeks.  Way to go!  The points were gained by walking quietly in the hall, earning extra points from their PE teacher or librarian and having  excellent behavior in the cafeteria.  It took teamwork to make this happen and they did it!  Enjoy the photos from our time at the St John's Community Center Park.
