Today's Learners...Tomorrow's Leaders
Elementary School Spirit Night - September 5th
Mark your calendar and plan to attend the Fort Dorchester High School football game on Friday September 5th at 7:30 for the Elementary School Spirit Night.  Our students will be practicing cheers during the upcoming school weeks and will have a pep rally at school.  A school contest will be held during the pep rally to determine which class can show the most spirit to win a class party.  So start making signs, shakers, and whatever else you want to use to show spirit. Spirit Night is a great family event that everyone can enjoy.  More information will be coming soon.
 
The 100 Mile Club® Walking/Running Recess Program
We have accepted the challenge and are really excited!  Starting the first week in September, participants will go to the bus loop during their recess times on Tuesdays (grades 3 - 5) and Thursdays (Grades 1- 2) to run/walk for exercise and fitness.  The miles accumulated and the love for running begin to build almost instantly!  For every 5 miles completed a student will receive a shoe tag, and when the 25 mile goal is reached, the student will receive a t-shirt to show off his/her accomplishment.
 
Through this journey, your child will practice personal goal setting, team spirit, perseverance, poise, confidence, and honest self-evaluation.  As your child reaches other “mile” stones, we will also celebrate.  All participants during the run/walk challenge will earn certificates.  Those who reach the 100 mile mark will also receive a medal on awards night. 

 
International Walk to School Day - October 8
Just a reminder that we will be having a Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 8th and would love for our JPES families to join the Health and Wellness Team and other school and communities members in promoting a safer route for walking while emphasizing the importance of increasing physical activity. More information will be coming soon.
