Congratulations to the JCS Students who gave a fantastic performance Tuesday evening at Somerset County Chorus!
Great news! Only $400 needed to bring Archery to JCS! Donations are still being accepted. Send your financial blessing to JCS - and mark "Archery" on the envelope.
JCS students attended the ACSI Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C.
Remembering Jackie (by Mrs. Spory - Kindergarten teacher) She loved the color pink.....ate her veggies before her sandwich "because my mommy said I should eat these first".....went across the monkey bars, ran to get into the line and crossed once more and then once more again......enjoyed finger painting, pulling globs of yellow, orange, and red paint to create her fall leaf.......laughingly ran and twisted trying to step onto the shadows of her classmates while trying to escape their footsteps.....twinkly blue eyes just visible above the mass of milk bubbles allowed on this day after investigating the make-up of bubbles. Jackie Grace Schrock joined the JCS family in August, 2014; however she joined Wes and Heidi Schrock's family when she was born to them on July 12, 2009. In spite of valiant efforts, Jackie died of pneumonia about 1:00 a.m. on Friday, November 14, 2014. With blue eyes intact, a giggle easily shared, and curiosity ensuring academic discoveries, Jackie was an engaged learner in the Kindergarten classroom. Jackie, your chair is empty, your giggle is silent, the hole in our heart is huge. We will see you again, our little friend.

Congratulations to the JCS Book Jays who took a 1st Place ribbon at the IU08 Reading Competition!!
3rd grade students worked together to create a "Character Collage." Each student created a piece of the collage, emphasizing all the Bible characters and memory verses they studied throughout the First Quarter.
Friendships are such a blessing! 7th Grade enjoyed a picnic on November 8, 2014. It was a beautiful Fall day.
