Please stay up-to date on all JB Happenings!


Cougar Kindness Project

Mrs. King's 3rd grade class worked on a Cougar Kindness Project. Students learned about entrepreneurship, marketing, design, research skills and pitched their idea to their principals. The class worked together to design a t-shirt for our JB Community. Every t-shirt sold will go to the purchase of books about kindness for our JB students! The class worked with our local t-shirt company, Organic Robots, on a student design and learned more about the process of screen printing! Please scan the QR code below to see our inventory of JB WAY apparel. This project was completed entirely by KIDS!

School Dismissal Manager

School Dismissal Manager is now LIVE! Please check your email for login and set up directions. All school dismissal changes now go through School Dismissal Manager. You do NOT need to call the office if you put your change/absence in the APP. You should receive a confirmation email from SDM with your update.


This year, student iPads will be turned off from the hours of 7:00pm-6:00am, as they are not needed for instructional purposes during this time. Please be sure and charge iPads each night and limit use of them for non-school purposes. Thanks for your help!


Our JB Way is our expectations of students. We expect JB Cougars to be Respectful, Responsible and Kind! When we "catch" students following the JB Way, they are recognized by earning a Cougar Buck. Students also earn a Cougar Buck each day they are at school. They can then cash those bucks in for small prizes and fun coupons. Big thanks to our PTO for sponsoring the prizes!

Congratulations to this weeks' Positive Office Referrals!


Each classroom at JB has a designated snack time to help our students stay fueled for the school day! Please send in a healthy snack with your child each day. You can also send in bulk items to share with the class, we are always appreciative of donations.

The office at J.B. Stephens helps provide snacks for students that may not bring them from home for the day. If teachers are out of snacks in the classroom, the students come to the office. As you can imagine, we can go through a lot of snacks over time! Any contribution helps!!! We truly appreciate it!
