Character Education Update:

Our sixth pillar in our Character Counts education program is CITIZENSHIP.  We will be learning about and practicing this pillar throughout the month of May. Our school counselors will be teaching lessons on what it means to be a good citizen in the classrooms throughout the coming weeks.

Students will learn that CITIZENSHIP is:

  • Being responsible and respectful to people and animals and the environment.
  • Caring about your community and country.
  • Doing your best to make your home, school, and community a better place.

Ideas to help your child think about CITIZENSHIP:

  • Think about a problem in your classroom.  How can you help solve it?
  • List ways you can be a good citizen.
  • Learn how your state and federal government is run.
  • Think about what are important qualities in a leader.
  • Learn what it takes to become an American citizen.
  • List ways you can show pride in your country.
  • Demonstrate skills in following school rules.
  • Take pride in being an American.


Friendly Reminders:

Please be sure your child is bringing their Chromebook to school every day charged and ready for use. If your child has lost their charging cord please let us know so that it can be replaced. Thank you! 

Thank you for all you do for our community, and for making JAE such a wonderful place to be.


Mrs. Linda Greening, JAE Principal

Mr. Benjamin Paquette, JAE Assistant Principal
