Summer News from Mr. Story
The School Grades were announced July 11th and …the Florida Department of Education has once again recognized Julington Creek Elementary with the School Grade of “A” ! I would like to say congratulations and thank you to, not just or 4th and 5th grades, but to ALL of our wonderful girls and boys, our involved and supportive parents, and the inspiring teachers and awesome staff of Julington Creek. We are surrounded by an amazing group of people who all work together to make JCE a great place to grow and learn … and to work. I am so proud of each of you !
Our big news is a change in Assistant Principal … Mrs. Keaton was asked by Dr. Joyner to join the Administrative Team at Ketterlinus Elementary. This is an important opportunity for Mrs. Keaton and one she has graciously accepted. We shared with her, she is one-of-a-kind and will be truly missed by our students, parents, staff, and by me ! We wish her success with her new school.
Please join me in welcoming someone you all know as JCE’s new Assistant Principal, Mrs. Natalie Gitto. Mrs. Gitto spent the last year with us as Curriculum Recourse Coordinator and has accepted this promotion and new leadership role as Assistant Principal. Mrs. Gitto has done an excellent job during her time at JCE and Liberty Pines Academy and we are excited about her accepting these new responsibilities.
A new addition to JCE this year will be our new Curriculum Resource Coordinator, Mrs. Cindy Leeber. Mrs. Leeber transferred to JCE from a similar position at Landrum Middle School. Mrs. Leeber’s many experiences and love for students will make her a welcomed addition to our Administrative Team.
JCE Staff changes:
There have been a number of transitions over the summer. Hopefully you had an opportunity during the last week of school to meet our new Cafeteria Manager, Mrs. Teresa Butrimas. Mrs. Cotton has retired and joining JCE from PV/Rawlings is Mrs. Lori Gallaher. We are also fortunate to have a second Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Caryn Patterson teaming with Mrs. Ruth Milite to meet the needs of our students. We will soon begin interviews to replace our Computer Operator, Ms. Kelly Kubala.
Teachers moving on: To spend time with new babies are Mrs. Sargent (K), Mrs. Scott (1st), and Mrs. Griffin (3rd). Transferring to schools closer to home are Mr. Arnold (3rd) and Mr. Gurick (5th). Retiring from teaching are Mrs. Woodard (K), Ms. Miglin (4th), and Mrs. Roettger (4th). Please join me in wishing all of these wonderful teachers much joy and success with their new endeavors !
We would like to welcome two teachers (so far) who are new to JCE: Mr. Gary Davis (Leon Co.), Mrs. Lisa Lewis (Ala. and JCE). Interviews continue as the number of JCE’s students increases. We’re excited to have Mrs. KD Bender join us as a paraprofessional this year !
We have only 945 students registered. If your neighbors and friends have not yet registered their children for school, I urge you to encourage them to do so at their earliest opportunity. It is essential that we know how many students are coming and what grades they are in, so we can hire the correct number of teachers and other personnel. As you know, our schools are consolidated for the summer, but you can call JCE’s office number 547-7980 to arrange to register children.
Best wishes for a safe and wonderful summer … see you … soon !
