Hello parents and staff.
The PTO Executive Committee met with Superindent Stover today. He announced our new interim principal, Mr. LeVar Jenkins. He is the assistant principal at Plummer Elementary. His first day at JBES will be Thursday, October 6th. There will be a written announcement sent home in the student folders.
We discussed the Afterschool program and PALS. We got clarification that although PALS is a grant funded program for the curriculum and materials, DCPS provides the staff (and salary) which is why we have to pay the monthly fee. DCPS had grant funding for the afterschool program for the past 2 years that has been decreased. There will be another meeting scheduled with leadership and we will keep you updated on the progress. Payments are due online on the 1st of each month. Check your email for the notice.
Thank you for your continued support.
