On Friday, the C.W. Shipley family celebrated Logan Kenney, a classmate who passed away earlier this month. Students and staff wore red to honor Logan's legacy and ended the day with a schoolwide heart-shaped photo paying tribute to him. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Logan's family during this difficult time.
Announcement: Bus 1969 and 74 will be delayed this afternoon by about 10 minutes. Thank you for your patience.

Our kindergarten classes had a blast studying the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly! Students found caterpillars, fed them, and patiently waited until a butterfly emerged! This morning they were released to travel south!
Several JCS teachers recently received much-needed classroom materials thanks to a generous donation by Horace Mann Insurance Co. The company has spent over 75 years financially supporting public educators, including its national sponsorship of DonorsChoose, a nonprofit classroom funding site. Horace Mann representative Casey Belzer personally delivered the donations to several JCS schools, including C.W. Shipley and T.A. Lowery Elementary, Wildwood Middle, and Jefferson High School. He's pictured here with Ms. Palmer's third-grade class at C.W. Shipley, whose "Fuzzy Feet for Floor Fun" donation through DonorsChoose has made for a much quieter transition between classroom activities. Thank you to Casey and Horace Mann for supporting JCS!
Our 5th grade students enjoyed a visit from the Harpers Ferry National Historic Park (HFNHP) on Friday afternoon. Students learned about the causes of the Civil War, important leaders, and were shown some equipment used during the war. A huge thank you to the HFNHP for stopping out to work with our 5th grade students at CWS!
