YOUR STAFF BBQ "FOOD FOR THOUGHT"



In an effort to keep improving our staff engagement events, we'd love your feedback about last Friday's annual JC Schools Staff BBQ - even if you didn't attend! Because of last year's feedback we got an additional bounce house for the kids and worked with Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities to add fresh fruit to our menu. 


STAFF & STUDENT DIFFERENCE MAKERS
The JC Schools Difference Maker Award now (also) includes a student recognition opportunity! Help us recognize JC Schools staff and students who make a difference in their schools and our community; those individuals who go above and beyond to exemplify #JCStrongerTogether. 

We are excited to recognize our first Staff and Student Difference Makers of the 2019-2020 school year at the October Board of Education meeting!

--->PLEASE BE SURE TO USE THESE UPDATED FORMS...




JC Schools will thank all staff & student Difference Makers nominated, and some will be recognized monthly at the JC Schools Board of Education meeting.

We love to spotlight Difference Makers that are tied to each of our three organizational pillars: Learning, Partnerships and Stewardship.

PEACHJAR FLYERS
In order for a JC Schools staff member to have uploading privileges for flyers pertinent to district audiences (students & families), the Communications Department will first need to add you into our district account. This will then generate an email to you with login information. Yes, it's really that easy!

If you have any additional questions, please contact the JC Schools Communications department or Peachjar directly at (858) 997-2117 ext. 3.
