JBS News November 10, 2023


1331 N Blue Road, Greenfield IN


Please stay up-to date on all JB Happenings!


If you walk your student to the front of the building in the morning for arrival, please be sure and supervise them until we open the doors at 7:30am. Please do not just drop them off, as our adults do not come out to supervise until 7:30am and having students out front, unsupervised, is a safety concern. Thank you!

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!

This week's 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!
