Let the Games Begin!

Drumroll please…We are thrilled to announce the inaugural

Pledging Begins: Friday, October 27th

Event: Friday, November 10th

4th Grade, 8:15-9:00 a.m.
1st and 3rd Grades, 9:15-10:00 a.m.
Kinder and 2nd Grade, 10:15-11:00 a.m.

As in past years’ Fun Run fundraisers, each student will be collecting pledges based on the number of laps he/she runs, in an effort to raise funds for student and teacher programs. However, this year, the JES PTO is sponsoring the event (replacing Boosterthon) and cutting our costs considerably, meaning many more dollars to directly benefit our wonderful school! We’re also welcoming the team from Camp Gladiator, who will start the morning by training our Dragons and getting them warmed up for their fun run, and will take them through a course of obstacles as part of the day’s events.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Pledging begins TODAY and will continue — with prizes handed out throughout the next couple weeks as students secure per-lap pledges from family and friends — until our Friday, November 10th event. All you have to do is CLICK HERE to create your child’s personalized fundraising page!
  • In order for your child to be able to compete in the JES Dragon Olympics, a completed waiver must be returned to his/her teacher by November 3rd.  Hard copies were distributed to all students at school, or feel free to click here for an electronic copy to print at home.
  • WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS EVENT A SUCCESS! Over 100 volunteers will be needed between the event itself AND to help deliver prizes between October 30th and November 9th. Please consider clicking here to sign up for a time slot!! If you are not already an approved “CISD” volunteer please take a moment to fill out the form on the CISD website.

    THANK YOU for your support of our JES Dragons, and LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Gift Card Drive for Harvey Victims

Okay, here we go…we are partnering with Ozarka to donate GIFT CARDS for the school teachers and staff directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
How awesome to help our fellow schools that were impacted!!
All 11 Carroll campuses will be participating in a challenge to see who donates the most gift cards — not total dollars, but highest number of gift cards.
Johnson won the challenge last year — so the schools are out to beat us this year. But, we have no doubt that the JES Dragons can come through for our school and the hurricane victims. Let’s do this JES!! We only have ONE WEEK!!

Gift card ideas…

Our Back-to-School Gift to Our JES Dragons!

We are so excited to announce that the PTO will be purchasing Johnson Dragon T-Shirts for every student at JES this year! These shirts can be worn for field trips, Friday spirit days, and any time your child wants to show their Dragon pride. But, to get the right sizes for every student…click here to fill out your child’s shirt size via the Family Registration Form.

We have heard you loud and clear, and are trying to reduce all the paperwork you get sent home by combining it all in one place. So, when you go to sign up for your FREE T-SHIRT you will also be able to pay your homeroom dues, PTO dues, and sign up to volunteer. Just remember to hurry and sign up, as registration will close on September 18th.

Let’s get this year started, Dragons! It’s gonna be a great one!

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 year!  I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and welcome everyone back for what I’m sure will be a great year at Johnson. My name is Audra Snead, and I’m the President of the JES PTO this year…a job I couldn’t be more thrilled to have! 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 new 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 fantastic year!

— Audra

***Please feel free to contact me at ANY time with any questions or comments.  We love to hear from you! Just shoot me an email at president@ptojes.com.
