Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019, is the first day of school for all students from JK to grade 8.  I would like to extend a personal welcome to all of our families joining us at JWB, including our new families. We are very excited to have you as part of our JWB family.

We are looking forward to another great year at JWB. Our staff has an exciting year planned for their students with many events and extra-curriculars planned. At JWB, there is something for everyone, as we have leadership opportunities for our students in the areas of Arts, Athletics, Outreach and Spirit.

On Tuesday morning, our teachers will be out on the playground with a sign to identify their names and their class code. They will be organized in a clockwise fashion.  Please note that our school hours have not changed. They are:

Start Time:  9:15 a.m.

Our Open House date is Thursday, September 19th.  It will be held from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.  On this night, Movement X will be on site to offer all families the opportunity to get active and to have some fun with each other. Please mark your calendars now so that you don't forget to come out to the school for this special event. Open House is a great opportunity to come by the school and meet your child(ren)’s teacher.
