This Curriculum Night will have 3-5 grade level math & specialist focus for parents to learn strategies to help support their children at home. Google Meet Links

Thank you to all of our families who attended our first session of Curriculum Night.  It was amazing to see parents being risk-takers in our sessions and learning new strategies to do with your child(ren).

March is Women’s History Month celebrating countless women who have made a difference in our local communities, our nation and our world. Click to Nominate someone at Joyner that has positively impacted your child(ren).   

Wishlists Now Available to Help Add to our JYJ LibraryOur new Media Specialist, Mrs. Hoyle, has done an amazing job with the library since her arrival! She has used the funds generated from the Book Fair earlier this year to purchase some new books which your children should start seeing the library after Spring Break!   She has also put together wishlists at Quail Ridge and on Amazon. If you are able, please consider purchasing a book or two to help bring some new variety to the JYJ library. Thank you in advance for your support!  Wishlist Links:
