Hello JES Families,

Spring Break is next week!! After a rather unusual school year, our students have truly earned this spring break! Our building will be closed from March 29th through April 2nd. Please remind your child to bring home their Chromebook and belongings they need over break. Fifth graders are reminded to bring home their musical instruments so they can continue to practice over the break.

When we return from break, students in grades 3, 4 and 5 will continue to prepare for the two week testing stretch that includes the MCA math and reading tests. Our fifth graders also take a science MCA on May 4th. Please note the MCA testing dates as it is important that students attend school during testing. If your child attends the OLA, more information will follow regarding these tests.  

MCA Test Dates
Reading MCA
Grade 3: April 13-14
Grade 4: April 14-15
Grade 5: April 12-13
Math MCA
Grade 3: April 20-21
Grade 4: April 21-22
Grade 5: April 19-20

Parent Input forms regarding student placement for next year will be available after spring break. More information will be sent out the week of April 5th

Mask up, stay physically distanced, and do everything you can to minimize your exposure to the virus so we can keep our students and staff safe, healthy, and in-person.

Enjoy your spring break and stay well!! We look forward to welcoming our students back to Jonathan Elementary on Monday, April 5th!!

Better Together,

Nancy Wittman-Beltz, Principal
