Fall Fun at JES

The past few weeks have been a busy but enjoyable time at Johnston Elementary. The students once again participated in raising money for the United Way. Over a 10 day period, they raised more $1100 through a variety of activities which included Hat Day, Going Batty Day, and Pick a Straw. JES was named as the school district winner for the fourth year in a row. For their efforts, the school will receive $500.
On the October 24th, JES hosted their annual Fall Family Festival. The gym and outdoor area were filled with games, food, hay rides, and a photo booth. Students and their families also browsed items in the country store and participated in the cup cake walk. The fall weather contributed to the large turn out and Mrs. Martin deemed the event a success. She added, “I believe this is the largest turnout we have had in many years. It is wonderful to see all the families and the support they give our school.”
Students were treated with Halloween bags prior to fall break. Mayor Terrence Culbreath, Police Chief Lamaze Robinson, and Officer Jeff Long delivered the bags and spoke with several student representatives. They reminded the students of trick or treat safety and wished them a happy fall break.
