PTO Elections

PTO will be holding elections next Wednesday, May 15, at 6:00pm during our monthly PTO meeting. Our PTO is a wonderful way for parents/guardians to get involved at school, get to know our teachers and staff, and share the school experience with their child. If you are interested please email the PTO @ jbstephenspto@gmail.com to submit your name and the position that you are interested in!

Current Positions: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Communications Director (manage and promote PTO events, run social media accounts) Hospitality Director (organize staff appreciation days, organize/plan PTO events)

Thank you to our current Officers and their JB Cougars!

Teacher Appreciation Week

It was a wonderful week of celebrating our staff at JBS! PTO did a fantastic job of spoiling us and had a fun "Around the World" theme. Each day we "traveled" to a new country. They changed the decor in the teacher lounge to match the country and had food items/gifts representative of the country and traveling. It was a wonderful week! Thank you, PTO for taking such good care of us!

Student IPAD Collection

IPADS and Chargers: We will begin collecting IPADs and chargers at school on Friday, May 24, 2024. If you do not return your GC 12 volt charger, or one comparable, there is a $15.00 fee. If a charger isn't returned or $15.00 is not received, your student will not be given a charger at the beginning of next school year.

School Dismissal Manager (reminder)

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.

J.B WAY (reminder)

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 week's Positive Office Referrals
