Family Fun Night! Friday, September 21st, 5:30pm

Come join the JES PTO celebrate the beginning of school at our first annual Family Fun Night on Friday 9/21.  See flyer link below.  Activities are getting added daily.  Indoor activities will take place from 5:30 pm -7ish and we hope to start the movie around 7:15 pm, after the sun sets. If you don’t want to wait in line for pizza, we suggest pre-ordering, it’s a great way to help us plan for how much food to buy for the event. Also, to make this night a success, we are looking for a few volunteers to help.  Our hope is that all volunteers will be sitting outside with their friends and families to enjoy Shrek.  Volunteer link: VOLUNTEER SIGNUP Family fun night Pre-Order Form JESFUNflyer If any questions, please contact Bridget Boche at bboche@comcast.net....

MyStop gives parents and students access to live bus GPS info

MyStop is a web-based application available to all Eastern Carver County Schools parents and students that lets them access live bus GPS information. Using a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, parents and students can view the current location of buses on routes and the estimated time of arrival at their neighborhood bus stops. This simple and informative tool gives parents, guardians and students the ability to know approximately where the school bus is on its route. MyStop displays the school bus’s approximate location on a map, as well as the estimated time of arrival (ETA) to a specific student’s bus stop. The school bus’s location is automatically updated every few minutes, and the ETA is recalculated to accommodate any delays due to traffic while the bus is en route. Please note: does not work for after-school activity routes since there are no students assigned to them and no set stops. Learn more about MyStop and how to download the app on the district’s Transportation... Continue reading MyStop gives parents and students access to live bus GPS info

The first day of school for kindergarten and grade 1 will be Sept. 6. Eastern Carver County Schools elementary schools are building off of a current practice where kindergarten students have an assessment time with the teacher before the start of the school year. Parents/guardians should plan for an hour in order to prepare information or complete forms prior to the conference. A large portion of time will be devoted to the student to complete assessments with the teacher or a paraprofessional. This conference has three goals: Students will be on track with their learning earlier in the year. Teachers get to know their students individually right from the start and can plan more personalized instruction earlier in the school year.
