Rising 6th grade parents,
Please visit the Fruit Cove website and subscribe to the Frequent Flyer as a “Rising 6th Grade Parent” so you can begin receiving middle school information. Also, as you coordinate all your summer appointments, please note that rising 6th graders (current 5th graders) need two Varicella vaccines before entering middle school (this is new). You can either provide the elementary with the proper documentation or provide the middle school with the information over the summer.

The AR Store Needs Your Gently Used Books!
We are collecting new and gently used books for the AR store this year.
We have an amazing array of fun and exciting items for sale in the store for the students this year but we are short on books and would love for each student to go home with a new-to-them book this year. If you have books in your collection that you can contribute please drop them off in the bin located in the front office.
Parents, please complete this anonymous survey (17 questions). Your feedback will help administration and SAC plan for the following school year and better know how to meet your needs. Regardless of the number of children you have at JCE, you only need to complete this survey one time.
