Student Tardies


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.




Thanksgiving Celebration 

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!
