Hello JRW Families! We are asking for your help as we enter the second half of the 2020-2021 school year. (As if you don’t have enough on your plates!) Every other year we are required to provide parents/guardians with a survey about how JRW is doing! My guess is that the survey has been modified to inquire about JRW regarding this unique academic year and not a typical one. The 5 Essentials survey is a comprehensive, evidence-based tool designed to drive school improvement. In fact, staff and students from 4th - 12th grades are asked to participate as well. We would love for your feedback! Responses are confidential and not shared with the school. We receive a summary of results, if there are ample responses to make a viable assessment of our schools’ successes.

After learning about penguins this week, 4C tried to create their own penguins' blubber to keep them warm in the cold Antarctica. Their challenge was to insulate a cup of water so that it would not freeze as quickly when placed in the freezer. They all succeeded!
