News

Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shoutouts. Please check in often and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements. 

Letter From the Superintendent

At Jennings County School Corporation, there is nothing we take more seriously than the safety of our students. In the past week, some students and members of the public have raised concerns about one or more incidents regarding school safety. Federal privacy laws prohibit us from sharing information regarding any specific student or incident. Please remember that postings on social media and shared information are based on gossip, not facts.

Please take a moment to read the important letter from Superintendent Teresa A. Brown in its entirety.

Vision Screenings

Our nurse is conducting vision screenings on kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades this week and next. It is also our policy to check new students to the school. If you have a concern and your child is in another grade level, you can request an eye exam from the nurse.

Picture Day

Picture day is on Friday, September 20. Dress your best, and be ready to smile!

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-teacher conferences are on Monday, September 23 and on Tuesday, September 24 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Our faculty really values this opportunity to share good news about the many ways the children are growing and to collaborate with parents to improve their learning. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy work days to participate in these important conferences.

Book Fair

We will be hosting a school book fair the week of September 23 through September 27. Come visit, and purchase books. Our book fairs help support our school library with new books. There are books for all ages and reading levels, so come look at the great selections.

JCHS Seniors Car Wash Fundraiser

Have you noticed dirt piling up on your car's hood? Or perhaps the summer bugs have taken over your car's front grill? Then you need to have your car washed by our own JCHS Seniors on Saturday, September 28! Drive on over to Greg Hicks's parking lot next to Wendy's (North Vernon) and get your car washed and dried from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The proceeds from this car wash go directly toward the seniors' trip to Gulf Shores, AL over spring break. If you are feeling generous but can't attend the event Saturday, send us your donations! We'd love them! Please make checks out to JCHS. Thank you for considering our event in your busy schedules!

Third Grade Grandparents Day

We love our GCE grandparents! Our third graders will have their Grandparents Day on September 20 at 1:30 p.m. We can’t wait to share this special day!

Speech and Hearing Screenings

We will be conducting routine speech and hearing screenings throughout the school year. If you do not want us to screen your child, please send in a written note.
