In the interest of our students, we are trying to lower the amount of tardy students here at Jacksonville Commons Elementary. We are asking students and parents to be more aware of when students are arriving on campus in order to ensure students are receiving the maximum amount of instructional time with their teachers. When students arrive past 7:15, we have some procedures in place:
1) We are asking parents or guardians to come into the building and check their student in
2) Phone calls will be made keeping parents and guardians informed when a student is tardy along with the number thus far during the current school year
3) Classes who have the least amount of overall weekly tardies will receive an incentive
We are also Score Boarding weekly tardy counts in our front lobby. Parents and guardians are encouraged to come take a look and stay informed on how the entire school fairing.
We would like thank all the Cafeteria Staff, our JCE PTO, Student Leaders, and Staff Members who helped make the JCE Thanksgiving Celebration a wonderful and enjoyable event! It was great to gather as a school community along with welcoming JCE parents to come spend some quality time with our students and our school!
Veterans Day Ceremony at JCE!
On Friday, November 13th, we celebrated Veterans Day here at JCE with a Flag Ceremony in front of the school. We were honored to have a Camp Lejeune Base Color Guard Unit raise the American Flag at the start of the school day. This was accompanied by the JCE Chorus signing the National Anthem with some of our students sharing what Veterans Day meant personally.
