JKES Parent Teacher Organization

  • The John Kerr Parent-Teacher Organization takes an active role in the school community.  The executive board consists of four officers, teachers, principal, committee chairs and any interested parents.  PTO flyers and information are sent home in student’s Thursday folders. The JKES PTO is officially a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so we are able to accept tax deductible donations. 

    To contact the PTO, email Perry McAlister at jkespto@gmail.com.  Follow the JKES PTO on Facebook.

Volunteer Opportunities

Trex Recycling Program

  • Every year hundreds of schools across the nation compete against each other to recycle the most plastic film. In addition to providing a better understanding and appreciation for the importance of recycling, Trex will happily donate a high-performance composite bench to the winning school, and bestow honorary awards to every school that participates.

    Please support JKES, Trex, and recycling by depositing plastic bags in the container located outside the main entrance of the school to the left of the main doors.  All plastic must be clean, dry, and free of food residue.  Plastic items that can be recycled include: Grocery bags, Bread bags, Case overwrap, Dry cleaning bags, Newspaper sleeves, Ice bags, Wood pellet bags, Ziploc and other reclosable bags, Produce bags, Bubble wrap, Salt bags and Cereal bags.
