From the Principal

{title}
Thank you for visiting our school’s website. As a member of the JBE family, we hope you will also visit our Jesse Boyd Facebook page, Twitter feed, and Youtube channel. We are an active school striving to educate young people to become lifelong learners and leaders. We do this by working on achieving three main goals: becoming a model IB school, implementing reader’s and writer’s workshop in all classrooms, and becoming a model school for innovation in the use of technology in the classroom.
Our staff works diligently to maintain high educational standards by providing a rigorous and challenging curriculum. We strive to guide our students to read and think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively orally and in print, and to utilize technology in relevant ways. Along the way we have a lot of fun by creating a children’s first philosophy and celebrating the success of children.

Superintendent Visits White House for Summit
Dr. Russell Booker joined 100 school leaders from model districts nationwide who were selected by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in the first National Connected Superintendents Summit held Wednesday, November 19, at the White House. President Barack Obama, U.S. Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan, and senior U.S. Department of Education staff recognized the selected superintendents for their leadership in helping transition their districts to digital learning.
The meeting was building on the momentum of Obama’s ConnectED Initiative, designed to enrich K-12 education for every student in America. The initiative aims to connect 99% of students across the country to broadband in five years, and is about empowering teachers and students with the best technology and the ability to make the most of it.

MONSTERS

MONSTERS
Jesse Boyd students worked hard last year to earn their hero status. They did this by completing task beyond their classwork and homework because a hero is someone who does more than is expected. 87% of JBE students earned their hero status. We are so proud of our students and how you showed grit and perseverance. This year our students will become MONSTERS. Why monsters? Monsters show so many of the IB Learner Profile attributes and IB attitudes that we try as IB learners to exemplify each and every day: Curiosity Principled Risk-takers Caring Communicators Enthusiasm Creativity Integrity Cooperation Confidence Inquirers Thinkers Appreciation Reflection We can’t wait to see what our students are going to accomplish with the theme this year.
