Life at the ES is fast paced.  I hop from announcements, to a kitchen leak, to a crying kinder, to a classroom observation, and it is not even 8:30 yet...whew! We are serving 303 students now, plus the NEKAP Headstart.


I must first say a huge "THANK YOU!" to everyone that has made this year a success so far.  The entire ES staff is hardworking, dedicated, and professional.  I am proud to be working with people that care about the health, safety, and education of our community's children.


Thank you goes out to the parents too. I have met so many of you by now and had so many discussions; I know you value JWES.  Your support of the ES and its staff is invaluable to our success.  I appreciate your cooperation when dealing with any school business whether it's a call about bussing, an absent student, or heaven forbid...a call about discipline.  Your support and cooperation of what we do is so wonderful.


The spring is winding up to be fast and furious.  We are gearing up for the Kansas State Assessment as we do every year.  Three music programs and Kindergarten Roundup are just around the corner.  Do you know any new Kinders...give us a call if you do.  Shortly, there will be a new playground set to be built.  Throw in the upcoming parent teacher conferences and it is April before we know it.  Who is ready for Spring Break?!


But I am getting ahead of myself.  Right now the ES is in the throws of winter and that means keeping and eye on the weather, keeping germs at bay with plenty of hand washing, and reading, reading, reading!


I want to ask everyone reading this to do your part to continue to make JWES the best ever.  Together we will continue to be a successful school...GO TIGERS!




Mr. Sturgeon
