Third Quarter Award
TJES student accomplishments were recognized Friday, February 6 during an awards assembly attended by United Tribes President Dr. David M. Gipp. Dr. Gipp was presented a JTES Waste’ Way t-shirt, which means respecting self, others, environment, children, teachers, and property.
Go For The Green
TJES students also received the new, green Waste’ Way t-shirt. Why green? Just like a traffic light, green means “Go,” as in keep on working hard, that’s why we went for that color. Green means make good choices in working toward your goal.
