THE BIRDS & THE BEES…oh help me, please!

Megan Michelson with The Birds & The Bees will lead a live program that encourages and equips parents to have age appropriate conversations with their young children about sex. Where do babies come from? How is that baby going to get out of there? The Birds & The Bees want parents to answer these questions when their kids are asking them in order to create a foundation for future conversations. In today’s sex saturated culture, the idea of “the talk” at age 13 is too late. Their goal is to replace that one talk with several smaller talks so that your kids can hear your voice and values. They want parents to be prepared and have a plan for when the questions start, because it will be sooner than you think! The live program walks you through the six- step strategy that takes you from the early preschool years to preadolescence.

Many parents come to this program nervous and intimidated about this topic and leave feeling encouraged and empowered!

JES Fall Picnic

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UPDATE 10/11/18:

It is with so much sadness, we are announcing the JES FALL PICNIC IS CANCELLED. This is one of our favorite events to celebrate with all of our JES family. Unfortunately due to the weather, we are forced to make a difficult decision. There is rain forecasted throughout the day tomorrow and due to the small space we have to utilize, the rain will spoil our fun. Even if the rain stops in time, the small area we have to utilize will be wet & muddy. It was already wet with standing water today.

Although this is a free event for our families, the PTO does incur costs. We had to let our vendors know we were cancelling so that we didn’t incur extra charges…so the decision had to be made tonight.

Those that purchased tape to tape Dr. Moses to the wall…no worries, we will do this at a different event. For those that purchased dinner- YOU WILL BE REIMBURSED VIA PAYPAL.

We are truly sad. We had so many fun things planned. Thank you Natalie Merkord, Lindsey ‘Kinnebrew’ Oglesby, and Anita Hubbard for all your work on this event.

We have many more exciting events planned for our JES family, so stay tuned!

Welcome Back, JES Dragons!

If y’all are anything like me, you’re shocked at how fast the summer flew by! But, ready or not, here we are…all set to say “goodbye” to lazy days of vacation and “hello” to the hustle and bustle — and excitement! — of a brand new school year!  I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and welcome everyone back. My name is Audra Snead, and I’m the President of the JES PTO again this year…a job I couldn’t be more thrilled to have! I’m also so excited for the chance to work with our fantastic new team of administrators, Dr. Moses, Mrs. Williams, and Ms. May. Their energy and enthusiasm is contagious, and we already have plans for many exciting things for our students and families this year. Thanks to our wonderful and supportive parents, and our dedicated teachers and staff, the Johnson community is one that is tirelessly devoted to the well-being of our little Dragons, and I feel so fortunate to be helping lead the charge for a year full of programs and events driven by our PTO and its countless volunteers (which we hope will include YOU!).  I invite you to take a look around our website and learn more about all that the PTO does to not only support our teachers and staff in their work with our kids each day, but also to create community among our students and their families…they say it takes a village, and it certainly does. Welcome to OUR village, and we look forward to working with you to make this a year to remember!

— Audra
