Miss Sullivan and Students are Creating a Masterpiece
Congratulations to our Art Educator, Miss Sullivan, who was awarded a grant that would enable our students at SJES to work in collaboration with preservice art educators Lindsey Hyde, Alexa Sharrah, Ashley Fritsch, Kianna Wills and Aleisha Iser from Shepherd University and Art Education Professor, David Modler. Our students have been busy creating a display, piece by intricate piece, that will eventually be displayed as an art installation at Shepherd University, beginning in May 2017. The ideas behind the installation are centered around our them on patriotism, as well as the work of renowned artist, Jasper Johns, who is an American painter, sculptor and printmaker associated with Abstract expressionism, Neo-Dada and Pop art. We are anxiously looking forward to the finished product for sure! More information will be coming about the reception and unveiling of this amazing collaborative work of art.

Spring Has Sprung at South Jefferson!
Last year, our students planted tulips and daffodils on the nature trail that surrounds our school. Mrs. Fincham's 2nd grade class was surprised to discover the products of our hard work as they took a walk along the trail. Isn't it delightful when you see the fruits of your labor?
David Sheppard Receives Positive Principal Referral
Congratulations to fourth grader, David Sheppard, for receiving a Positive Principal Referral from kindergarten teacher, Miss Mendzela. She witnessed David working with his kindergarten reading buddy and she was impressed with his patience and diligence in working with the younger student. He remained focused and supportive so that his reading buddy could complete a reading and writing assignment, with guidance from David. What an incredible example for ALL of our students! Thank you for being YOU, David!

Celebrating Read Across America Contest Winners
Congratulations to our Estimation Contest Winners, Mason Harding, Marissa Sturba and Brady Breeden! Everyone in our school participated in a contest, held during Read Across America Week, in which the students had to estimate how many items were in a container. These three savvy students were the closest with their estimations, using their mathematical skills to help them achieve this goal. All of them were given a treat bag with Dr. Seuss items, bookmarks, pencils and a free book of their choice from the SJES Book Fair. Well done!
