      Parent Teacher Conferences were held Thursday, March 23 and Tuesday, March 28. A "Thank You" to all parents who attended and/or rescheduled their conferences. Parental support is crucial to your child's academic success. If you haven't checked the lost and found lately, please do so. Several articles of clothing need to be claimed.

      The last Saturday Literacy Club for the 05-06 school year was held April 8 with 17 families attending. Students and parents participated in literacy activities, one of which was making an "Easter Bunny". The TJES staff thanks parents who have supported this program during the past school year.

      Research has shown that mentoring makes a significant impact in a variety of prevention areas, such as reducing suicide behaviors, tobacco usage, substance abuse, violence, teen pregnancy, truancy, school dropouts, and improving academic performance. The North Dakota Tribal-Rural Mentoring Partnership provides statewide services to programs that work to match teen and adult mentors with children to develop a relationship that is fun and enjoyable for both. If you are interested in supporting the TJES mentoring program, please consider sponsoring the "Geranium Fundraiser". Geraniums are $2.50 each, must be ordered by April 28 and will be delivered after May 10. Please contact Barb Danks at 1236 or Renee at 1304 if you are interested in ordering a red, pink or white Geranium to support the TJES mentoring program.
