During the 2019-2020 school year, JKES will be piloting a new House System, based on the Ron Clark Academy House System.
At JKES, we will have six houses: Altruismo, Amistad, Isibindi, Reveur, Tatonka, and Rakkan. Every student and staff member at JKES will be randomly assigned to one of the six houses. Each house has its own unique properties, such as color, symbols, history, and character traits.
Amistad-Red- Kindness /Friendship
Isibindi- Green- Courage
Rêveur- Blue- Dreamer
Tatonka- Yellow- Trustworthy
The House System was introduced to students during a school wide assembly on Tuesday, August 20th, and students were assigned to houses on Wednesday, August 21st.
Throughout the year, students will earn points for school spirit, outstanding performance, academic excellence, good character, effort, and other. House members will celebrate their community via House Lunches, House Celebrations Monday, House T-Shirts, and House Award Days.
