Principal Message

Last Week of School

Dear Parents and Guardians,


What an eventful week we've had at Jennings Creek Elementary! We successfully completed our KSA testing ahead of schedule. Despite some weather challenges, the testing process went smoothly. A big thank you goes out to Ms. Rather, Ms. Horne, and Ms. Litsey for their outstanding organization and to all our test proctors, including classroom teachers who managed both large and small testing groups. Your dedication made a huge difference!


SBDM Election Results


Last week, we also held elections for new SBDM members. Congratulations to our newly elected teacher representatives: Ms. Tara Tinsley, Ms. Rasema Hodzic, and Ms. Julia King. We are pleased to welcome back our parent representatives, Ms. Holly Ellis and Ms. Latoya Dunn. These members will serve a two-year term and will undergo SBDM training soon.


Field Day and Good Faith Effort Rewards


Field Day is on Monday, a day filled with fun and excitement for our students. This day will also include Good Faith Effort Rewards for KSA testing. It is important that students wear clothes that they can get wet and are comfortable. If they want to bring a change of clothes that would also be acceptable. We look forward to a fantastic day having fun and celebrating our KSA testers. 


Promotion/Award Ceremonies


Our promotion and award ceremonies will take place on the last day of school, with preschool, kindergarten, and 6th grade ceremonies in the gym. Please note the schedule:


Kindergarten: 9:00 - 10:00 AM

6th Grade: 10:30 - 11:30 AM
