  • JWB Hosts Battle of the Books!

    Students at JWB have spent weeks rigorously reading and discussing books in preparation for the annual Battle of the Books competition. Teams for each grade level worked with teachers as they prepared to square off in competition to see which team is able to accurately answer the most questions about their respective books. During the competition, parents and guardians were invited in to watch and celebrate the participants. The culminating activity will be a Book Battle between the winning team for JWB and the winning team from MCM. Thank you to JWB Library Media Specialist, Mrs Polack and the teacher captains for providing this awesome learning activity to our students! bob1

  • JWB Lucky Bulldogs

    This year the JWB PBIS team sought to create a program in which they could raise the spirits and morale of our students. Their efforts have led to the creation of the Lucky Bulldog drawings. Every Wednesday, two students are selected from each grade and then announced as our Lucky Bulldogs. These students receive a sticker indicating their Lucky Bulldog status as well as the chance to select from the prize box. The positive impact of "winning", and the recognition from having your name announced during the morning announcements, has already created a positive vibe in our schools and we have had over 80 Lucky Bulldogs since December.

  • Students in Corina Moot, Denee McGrath, and Nicole Giebelhaus' 5th Grade class used STEM skills to design and build a massive gingerbread house. Students had to figure out volume, design floor plans, understand and create different solutions for the frosting, figure out perimeters, and other important pieces to make sure their gingerbread house was as stable and sturdy as it was beautiful!
