On Your Mark, Get Set, READ!
Summertime is almost here! We have accomplished so much in reading this year. Let’s keep it up this summer!
In order to prevent our reading levels from floating backwards, NJES is challenging ALL students to READ, READ, READ throughout the summer! We want students to read at least 40 books or 20 hours during our summer break. This is the same challenge that has been set by our local public library branch! This means that you can visit your local library this summer to check out some amazing books and use one reading log!
Completed reading logs are due Wednesday, August 10th. Students who read the designated number of books or complete their 20 hours of reading will be able to participate in a fun and exciting activity. We would also love for you to post pictures of what and where you read this summer and use the hashtag #NJESReads.
Visit our Summer Reading Website for more information and to download your reading log.
Applications will be available Monday, March 7 – Friday, April 1.
Children who live in Jackson County and will be four (4) years old by September 1, 2016 should complete an application for Pre-K during this time.
You will need the following items to complete the application process:
- Child’s birth certificate
- Child’s Social Security card
- Child’s immunization record
- Proof of residency in school district (911 address only)
- Photo ID of person registering child
- Form 3300 – hearing/dental/vision
Completion of this application does not guarantee that your child will be enrolled in the Pre-K Program. The Jackson County Pre-K Program is limited to a certain number of students. There will be a drawing in late spring to determine which students will be enrolled. Once the process is complete, all applicants will receive notification by mail. Open House will be announced at a later date. Five year old children are not eligible for the Jackson County Schools Pre-K Program and will only be considered for enrollment in Kindergarten.
Kindergarten Registration will be held on March 30 & 31. Please call 706-693-2246 to schedule an appointment.
