Thank you for visiting our webpage. We hope you will find usual information here.

Jesse Boyd Elementary School makes it our mission to educate young people to become lifelong learners and productive community members through a challenging and supportive environment which promotes academic excellence, confidence and creativity. We do this by working on achieving three main goals: becoming a model IB school, becoming a model reader’s and writer’s workshop school, and becoming a model school for innovation in the use of technology in the classroom. We can’t wait to see what is in store for us at JBE in 2016-2017!

Teaching is a major part of my purpose and my life’s work!” With only 8 years so far in the classroom and the distinction this year of being voted Cleveland’s Teacher of the Year AND District 7’s Teacher of the Year, Littlejohn has proven herself a well respected, effective educator who goes above and beyond to satisfy the needs of her students.

Seussical the Musical, Jr.

Seussical the Musical, Jr.
The Jesse Boyd musical production staff is super excited to announce that the 2017 school wide musical will be Seussical the Musical, Jr.
Tryouts are open to all students in grades 1-5. Forms for tryouts can be picked up from Mrs. Fischer until Tuesday, September 20th. Students must turn in tryout forms by dismissal on Wednesday, September 21st. No late tryout forms will be accepted.


Each year at Jesse Boyd our students work very hard to achieve more than is expected of them. They do this by completing task beyond their classwork and homework because a JBE student is someone who does more than is expected. 91% of JBE students earned their racing status last year. We are so proud of our students and how you showed grit and perseverance. This year our students will become GOLD MEDAL Olympians. Why is our theme the Olympics? Of course this year we are having the Summer Olympics, but more importantly Olympic athletes show so many of the IB Learner Profile attributes and IB attitudes that we try as IB learners to exemplify each and every day:
Olympians also show great commitment to their goal. They practice every day and get better and better as they #goforgold. Olympians also understand that sometimes you have to go slow to go fast and our students will learn all about that while they go through the curriculum. The other component of being an gold medal winner is team work. For example an Olympian can’t earn gold without the coach, teammates, sponsors, fans, and family supporting his/her efforts. Our students will learn to use their communication skills and learn to collaborate along the way. We are super excited about watching our students become Olympians as they #GOFORGOLD.
