    3rd-8th Grade Families,

    Individual student score reports for the NC Check-Ins 2.0 and NC EOG/EOC’s are now available digitally. The NC Check-Ins 2.0 are formative assessments developed by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s Annual Testing Program and are aligned to North Carolina grade-level content standards. The main purpose of the assessments is to provide students, teachers, and parents or guardians with immediate in-depth data and a reliable estimate of students’ current performance on selected subsets of content standards. The end-of-grade (EOG) tests share a common question bank with the NC Check-Ins 2.0, which then exposes students to similar question types and rigor found on the EOGs.

    To access your child’s score report(s) you will need to login to your PowerSchool account and click on State Test Score Reports (see screenshot). You will also have the option to view the reports in Spanish. These reports are not accessible from the Parent Portal APP at this time, only the desktop version through a browser window.

    Adrian Maynor, MTSS Coach & JSW School Testing Coordinator

    Familias de 3-8 grados,

    Los informes de calificaciones individuales de los estudiantes para NC Check-Ins 2.0 y NC EOG/EOC ahora están disponibles digitalmente. Los NC Check-Ins 2.0 son evaluaciones formativas desarrolladas por el Programa de pruebas anuales del Departamento de Instrucción Pública de Carolina del Norte y están alineadas con los estándares de contenido de nivel de grado de Carolina del Norte. El objetivo principal de las evaluaciones es proporcionar a los estudiantes, maestros y padres o tutores datos inmediatos y detallados y una estimación confiable del desempeño actual de los estudiantes en subconjuntos seleccionados de estándares de contenido. Las pruebas de fin de grado (EOG) comparten un banco de preguntas común con NC Check-Ins 2.0, que luego expone a los estudiantes a tipos de preguntas y rigor similares a los de los EOG.

    Para acceder a los informes de calificaciones de su hijo, deberá iniciar sesión en su cuenta de PowerSchool y hacer clic en Informes de calificaciones de exámenes estatales (ver captura de pantalla). También tendrá la opción de ver los informes en español. No se puede acceder a estos informes desde la aplicación del portal para padres en este momento, solo desde la versión de escritorio a través de una ventana del navegador.

    Información del portal para padres PowerSchool (versión en español)

  • Are you dividing your PERENNIALS this Spring? 

    If you answered “yes”, we’d love some for our perennial garden. There is a tree that provides a little shade – but most of the garden is FULL SUN.

    You may leave your plant donations under the bench beside the front doors. 

    If you know the plant type, please let us know what it is.

    Thank you!

    Happy Spring Planting!

  •  REQUIRED ATHLETIC THRIFTSHOP HOURS

    3 hours will be required for EACH SPORT a student participates in.
     
    The JSW Box is always in need of emptying and this would be a fast way to knock out your athlete's hours! The driver and a helper's hours would count for the athlete.
     
    Visit our website to sign up.
     
    The funds raised are for purchasing uniforms as needed, pay officials, transportation to away games, & items needed for each sport. 
     

    HORARIO OBLIGATORIO DE ATHLETIC THRIFTSHOP

    Se requerirán 3 horas por CADA DEPORTE en el que participe un estudiante.

    ¡La JSW Box siempre necesita vaciarse y esta sería una forma rápida de eliminar las horas de su atleta! Las horas del conductor y de un ayudante contarían para el atleta.

    Visite nuestro sitio web para registrarse.

    Los fondos recaudados son para comprar uniformes según sea necesario, pagar a los oficiales, transporte a los juegos fuera de casa y artículos necesarios para cada deporte.

Message from Mr. Wilkins

  • Hello Cub Families,

    Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We hope you have had a fantastic summer and are looking forward to the upcoming school year. We are excited to continue to build relationships with you as we work together to serve our students and our community.

    At J.S. Waters, we believe that all students can learn and experience success, education is a shared responsibility among all school stakeholders, environment fosters mutual respect between students and staff, and quality education results in lifelong learning. We are committed to ensuring that all students are successful through hard-work, collaboration, and determination. Our students made significant growth last school year and we look to build and improve on that this school year. Our staff has worked very hard to ensure that lessons are planned, classrooms are prepared, and that our school is in top shape to begin the new year!

    We have several opportunities this year that we would like parents or community members to serve in. School stakeholder involvement is very important to us as we pursue the mission and vision of our school. If you are interested in serving our school by being on a committee, team, or by offering your ideas on how to improve our school, please reach out to me at mwilkins@chatham.k12.nc.us or (919) 898-2259. Our amazing PTA is also in need of school stakeholders who are willing to serve in our efforts to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer exciting events and programs.

    As the principal at J.S. Waters, I am committed to ensuring that every stakeholder feels valued and respected for who they are and what they contribute to our school community. We are very excited to partner with you to make J.S. Waters the best school that it can be for our students and community. We have no doubt that this is going to be a great school year!

     

    “Excellence for Everyone”

     Matthew Wilkins, Principal
