Introduction to the JKES House System

Mission and Vision

  • Through the JKES House System, we will instill a sense of belonging, pride, and personal growth in every student.  We will create a positive, inclusive school community and culture that fosters internal motivation by building relationships, character, excitement, and school spirit.

Points System

  • Students will earn points for their houses for a variety of different things.  Each day, teachers will track student points through our district's PBIS Rewards System.

House Celebrations

  • Students will have various opporuntities to celebrate and connect with members of their house.
