JNPSD Employees Receive Recognition

Some of Jacksonville North Pulaski School District’s top staff were recognized last week by the school board as part of their Outstanding Employee Awards.

The staff members were nominated for demonstrating an extraordinary level of job performance, support for students, professionalism and dedication.

The outstanding licensed employee at the elementary level is John Birmingham from Bayou Meto Elementary. Deborah Lutz was selected to represent the Middle School and Katie Roberts is the High School’s representative. Angela Sprow, a teacher at Bayou Meto Elementary, was selected as the District’s Teacher of the Year. Ms. Sprow is known to be innovative, student-centered and full of love for her craft.

From Bayou Meto Elementary, Sherry Ottis was selected as the Classified Employee of the Year. Ms. Ottis leads the work in the school cafeteria but knows that it is a team effort in serving students and staff.

Titan Service Awards were presented to Kevin Stalnaker, Director of Maintenance, Ava Coleman, secretary at Tolleson Elementary, and Adrienna Williams, secretary at the Middle School.

The District is very proud of all of the honorees, and our scholars are very fortunate to have such caring staff members to go above and beyond to help all students achieve. Each honoree received a monetary award from the Jacksonville Education Foundation.

July School Board Meeting Date Change

The July school board meeting scheduled for Monday, July 3, has been moved to Tuesday, July 11, because of the July 4 holiday. The meeting will begin at 6pm at Jacksonville City Hall located at One Municipal Drive in Jacksonville. The Meeting agenda will be posted closer to the event date.

Young Titans are Reading for Success

This spring, JNPSD partnered with Reading is Fundamental to bring the program, Read for Success, to all 2nd and 3rd grade students. These classrooms participated in read alouds and STEAM-related activities that have promoted science, technology, engineering, arts and math. In addition, all JNPSD 2nd and 3rd graders are leaving for summer break with eight books to add to their home classroom library. JNPSD students and families are encouraged to not only stay safe this summer, but also spend time reading together!

Moving Up to Middle School?

A mix of emotions—excitement, apprehension, curiosity and concern, often accompany the transition from elementary school to middle school. That’s why Jacksonville Middle School is hosting a meet and greet for rising sixth graders and their parents.

If your child will be in the sixth grade for the 2017-18 school year, please join us at the middle school located at 718 Harris Road Thursday, May 25, 5pm to meet the staff and receive helpful information.

We want to assist students and families by providing the groundwork for a successful middle school experience.
