The Johnson Elementary CARES Program helps promote positive climate and behavior in our school. The acronym CARES expresses some of the attributes that we want to encourage in our students. These include the following:
This acronym is used to establish expectations for the various areas of our school such as conduct in the halls, bathrooms, assemblies, and on the playground and bus. One way that we seek to foster these characteristics is by issuing JES CARES coupons whenever we see a student demonstrating these attributes. Then at a monthly JES CARES assembly each class draws one name and those students receive a small prize for exemplifying one of the attributes. We are proud of our students and are pleased to be able to acknowledge their growth in character. Our motto is JES CARES Showing respect to others, ourselves, and our school.
