In The Spotlight

Mrs. Smith sorts Troy into the Orange House.

School Spotlight

Walter Jackson Elementary School kicked off its new House System in August 2019 with a sorting ceremony. Under this new system, students, faculty, and staff were sorted into different "houses"-- Probitatis, Miseration, Tenebitur, and Spatium. These houses act like families within the school to promote community and respectful behavior. Houses will stay the same during students' and others' time at WJES. For example, if a student was sorted into the Probitatis House, that will will stay in that house until they go to middle school. Activities to accompany the House System include behavior points, community service projects, and athletic competitions. Even though we now gather in Houses to learn and grow, everybody at WJES is still one big family! #oneteamonedream
