Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout outs. Please check in often and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Birthday Celebrations

Just a quick reminder for you. If you are wanting to bring classroom celebration goodies for your child's birthday, please check-in with your student's teacher for a good day to bring those in. Also, please bring only individually wrapped, store-bought goodies. Thank you!

A Note from Our Principal

Dear Parents and Students,

Just a reminder that we communicate a lot through classroom Dojo so please stay connected and checking regularly. We hope that you and your families stay safe and remember that we are stronger together. Wishing you and your families a happy Thanksgiving and we hope to see you soon!

Counselor's Corner

According to legislation from Indiana Department of Education, each public school shall provide age-appropriate instruction on child abuse and sexual abuse to students in kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Thanksgiving Dinner for Families

JCYF is hosting thanksgiving for everyone again this year. It is a free thanksgiving dinner. This year, we are doing it drive-thru style. Families will drive up and tell us how many meals they need. They will get to-go boxes filled with ham, mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese, corn, green beans, stuffing, and rolls for the entire family. There will be plenty of food for everyone.

This dinner will be at the community building on November 21 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
