Teacher Appreciation Week is coming!!!
We are fortunate to have some awesome teachers and staff here at JDE! Let’s show them our gratitude for the hard work and time they put in each day of the school year.
2017 Teacher Appreciation weeks are planned for
MAY 15-19 for Tracks 3 & 4
We have some great things planned to treat our teachers! Please consider making some time to volunteer during your teachers designated week. Usual time commitments are between 30 minutes to 2 hours. If you happen to be available the week that is not your tracks week, you can still help! Please follow the sign-up genius link below to choose the date and time that works best for you.
If you are not able to be at the school, don't worry! You can still help treat our teachers by donating a food item for a special gift we are putting together. Please use the link below to signup for these items. A drop off box will be just outside the front office so you can drop off anytime.
As always thank you so much for your support of our staff and school.
Family Fun Night at Galaxy Fun Park:
End of Grade Testing Dates for Track 1 Students:
Students on Track 1 will be taking the End of Grade Tests on the dates below. Please make sure that your child has a restful evening the night before the tests.
I am so proud of our students, staff, parents and entire school community for earning the grade of A+ on the North Carolina School Report Card for the 2015 – 2016 school year. Only 3% of schools in North Carolina received an A+ grade (including charter schools). This can only happen when you have fantastic children, teachers, support personnel, parents and a supportive community. Furthermore, it is also the result of everyone involved being genuinely invested in our children and what they represent to the future of this country.
Schools throughout the state of North Carolina are graded based on end of grade test scores and student growth results. Please click the link below for more detailed information and to view other schools throughout the state.
*It is important to note that there are legitimate concerns with the state’s school grading system. For example, a school with lower proficiency rates, may be demonstrating positive growth results but because growth is less of a factor than overall proficiency, the school grade may not fairly represent the effort and accomplishments of the school staff, students and school community.
Some students are talking about the miniseries "13 Reasons Why," dealing with a student's death by suicide. We do not recommend that your student watch the series. However, if you choose to watch it, here is some helpful information for healthy discussion about it.
There are two information sessions in May about upcoming changes to your child’s school assignment.
