On Tuesday, April 25, J-HES held its first annual LEAP Pep Rally. Ms. Danielle Copeland led the Welcome, reiterating that the purpose of the LEAP assessment is to measure a student’s mastery of skills and readiness for the next grade level. It also contributes to the School’s Performance Score- which as an elementary school we are scored on assessments alone.
“I’d like to thank faculty, staff, and parents for their continued support. As well as our wonderful counselors, Mrs. Rachelle Mason and Mrs.Tristen Bergholtz for all their behind-the-scenes hard work. Prepping for LEAP is not an easy task! I can’t thank you all enough! Students, THE TEST DOES NOT DEFINE YOU, but you CAN and WILL do your very best. I am claiming each of your successes in advance.”- Ms. Danielle Copeland, JHES Principal.
The successful event was led by prayer by local pastors; Pastor Hamms of Pilgrim Rest B.C. of East Hodge, Pastor Warren of Galilee B.C. of Hodge, and Overseer McCardie of Kingdom First of Jonesboro. J-HES thanks them for taking time out of their busy schedules to attend our event.
Special Guests included the J-HHS Band under the direction of Mr. Trey Porchay and the 2023-2024 J-HES Cheer Squad under the direction of Ms. Lauren Bennett and Ms. Sarah White. Ms. Lisa Hicks, School Librarian, offered Words of Encouragement for all students to give their very best, by leaving it “all on the line” by showing up and giving their VERY BEST!
Last, but certainly not least, 2022 LEAP Mastery and Advanced Recipients were acknowledged and rewarded for their hard work, as well as the 2022 Teachers with the Highest Percentage of Mastery per Content Area for their dedication to increasing student achievement.
