"In the same way, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
One more week!
We are one short week away from the start of the 2020-2021 school year! Our staff has been busy preparing their rooms, lessons, and the grounds around school. Our construction projects are quickly coming to an end so everything is 'ready' for your arrival. It has been an exciting and busy few weeks at JCS.

As we all prepare to come back together, we are praying for you and your children. We know this school year is unlike any other. We know there are apprehensions about this year that aren't generally in the mix of emotions when we end our summers and go back to school. We are praying for you! Thank you for praying for us! We've seen parents in the parking lot praying for our school, received emails of prayer and encouragement, and can feel the support of our community as you lift our staff and school up in prayer. Thank you!

Please continue to check your email for news from school. In the next few days there will be all school reminders sent out, as well as class emails with specifics for your child.
