    ATTENTION 6th-8th Graders!

    Our school will have a Battle of the Books team again this year! I am excited about working with students to prepare to compete against other teams! I would like to share the titles for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year in order for interested students to begin reading. Competition begins in February 2018 so it is important to prepare for questions on these titles early in the school year. Students may choose which books to read, but we do need for all the titles to have been read by at least one person on our team! Please let me know if you have questions and enjoy the rest of your summer!

  • Calling all Perennial Gardeners!

    Perennial Garden

    We would like to add to our Perennial Memorial Garden that is between the Media Center and the Mobile Unit. If you have perennials you are thinning or if you are in the purchasing mood, we would love to have perennial plants for our SUNNY garden! We currently have plenty of Daylillies, Liriope muscari (AKA Monkey Grass), a few regular Iris, and some Siberian Iris. There is also a large rosebush and Hosta. The more variety and color the better! Just drop off plants to Catherine in the front office. Thank you!

Principal's Message

  • Welcome to J.S. Waters School!

    I am honored to be the principal of J.S. Waters since 2007. J.S. Waters is part of a great community and I am blessed to be a member of a great team. Our mission is to develop respectful and responsible citizens who will be successful in a diverse and technical world.

    I am happy to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education.

    1. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she: Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
    2. Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
    3. Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
    4. Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
    5. Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
    6. Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college.

    Please consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:

    • Teacher-led instructional support, usually in the classroom
    • Reading with children who need extra help
    • School-wide events
    • Student recognition events
    • Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers

    If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me or to discuss them with your child’s teacher. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year. Please feel free to review the Chatham County Schools Code of Conduct.

    The wonderful J.S. Waters staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.
