Dr. Aldridge’s Shout Outs And Announcements

GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING AT JACK ANDERSON!

Substitutes: One of the most helpful ways to truly serve our school is to become a substitute. Please fill out an online application at Sumnerschools.org, and contact Mrs. Donna Wise in the front office 264-5830. Thank you.

  • Shout Out to Safety Patrol! 5th Graders are doing a beautiful job unloading cars in the morning. Please pull all the way forward when you drop off and have your child unload quickly on the left. This allows us to unload more cars at a time.
  • Student Safety: Please arrive by 8:40am. If no adult staff member is at the cross walk & the sign is turned, please park & escort your child in the office. They will need a signed parent pass to go to class.
  • Drop Off and Pick Up: Our new traffic pattern has one point of entry and exit for our campus, so the Hendersonville Police Crossing Guard may control the traffic on Shutes Lane during peak hours 8-8:40am and 3:40-4:15pm. If you drop
    off & pick up by car, you are expected to comply with traffic pattern expectations. Thank you for your ongoing support.
  • Smart Card Sales: Thank you so much to all the families who have purchased a Smart Card featuring a Sam’s Warehouse coupon for renewal where you get a $25 gift card. There really are great savings & you are helping JAE. If at all possible, we would love for every family to buy one card. The sale is winding down. If you have any last minute orders, please get them in on Tuesday. We will have a celebration Dance Party for all students during related arts time on Friday.
  • 4th & 5th Grade Chorus Auditions: 4th Grade: Sept 6-10, 5th Grade Sept 13-16. 8am in the music room. Please only choose one day to audition and bring your completed information sheet.
  • 3rd-5th Grade Cross Country Team: 3rd-5th Graders: There will be a cross country information meeting this Tuesday evening in the gym at 6:00pm. The meeting will last approximately 30 minutes, and Coach Techa will go over the basics of cross country, information about practices, and will answer any questions you may have.
  • 2nd-5th Grade Tennis Team: JAE is starting a NEW Tennis Team. There will be a parent information meeting Wednesday, September 7th at 4:00pm in the library.
  • K-2 Book Buddies start this week! It is not too late to sign up to listen to students read. Sign up with your child’s teacher. If you are a parent of older students but would like to volunteer, we are in need of a few more volunteers Mon-Thurs. Please email Ashley.aldridge@sumnerschools.org and let me know your availability.
  • Maggie Moos last Thursday night was an incredible JAE Spirit Night! A special thank you to Ashley Bell for organizing the night & our celebrity scoopers! Thank you to Mrs. Cudd and Mrs. Bell for braving the heat to be our Miss Maggie Moo in car line!
  • PTO would like to sincerely thank and recognize our 2016-2017 Presenting Sponsors: Dr. Bill Taylor (Pediatric Dentist, www.just4kidsteeth.com) and Dr. Rick Orgain (Optometrist, www.greateyes.org). These exceptional doctors both have a huge heart for Jack Anderson and our surrounding community. We are extremely grateful for their partnership!

STEM LAB: Second grade started us off in the STEM lab creating closed ecosystems. The ecosystems had to include: at least one plant and one animal, a usable water cycle, and living and non-living things. Ecosystems will be in the STEM exhibition hallway on Tuesday afternoon.

STEM-task-tic: Jack Anderson “Hit the Gym” last week with our STEM-task-tic challenge. Students worked in small groups to create different pieces of gym equipment for our Olympic teams. Criteria: Each group needed to build a different piece of equipment to complete the gym, there could be no duplicates, & ALL equipment had to hold the weight
of a small action figure. Check out our STEM-task-tic tab on the website for great pictures of all of our Friday challenges!
