    Please note that if you are volunteering for any activity such as book fair, dances, etc. that you must be approved as a volunteer prior to participating or helping with any activity.

  • Mr. Bowling


    WELCOME to J. S. Waters,

    Mr. Chris Bowling!



    Mr. Bowling began his career in education in 2001 as an instructional assistant. He was motivated, working as a fourth-grade teacher for eight and a half years before serving CCS as the assistant principal of VCE for six and a half years. He’s been VCE’s interim principal since January, experience he’ll bring to JSW.

    “JSW staff will get an open book. I love to talk with the staff whether it be in moments of levity or in moments about what is going on in the classroom and how to make that better,” Bowling said. “JSW parents are going to get a guy who will get to know their kids, be visible and involved and show that not only I but our staff care about them.”

    Bowling — he’s a two-time national champion in adult softball — and his wife, Diana, have a third-grader and second-grade twins. Diana Bowling teaches physical education at Perry Harrison Elementary School.

Principal's Message

  • Welcome Back to School!

    Students and families, it is a privilege to serve as your Principal at JS Waters!  I want to welcome you to what is going to prove to be an exciting school year.  We will continue to build on our academic, and extracurricular successes from last year.  We will strive for excellence every day, knowing that mistakes happen as this is part of the learning process, persevere through those mistakes and ultimately enjoy our achievements.

    Parents for your part in this, please make sure you are talking with your child/ren every night about what they have learned in school.  Get them to school on time with a good night’s rest and we would love to have you volunteer in our school as well.  If you are able to do that, please make sure to fill out the volunteer application from the district website. 

    This is going to be a great year!  Thank you for being a part of it! 

    Chris Bowling
