Welcome Back! July 8, 2018 | Notes from the President

Hello Falcon Families!

Hopefully everyone has been able to enjoy the week, find time to spend with family and friends, and been able to rest and relax. We are excited to move into the last few weeks of our 2017-2018 academic year!

Important District Information

Standards-Based Reporting - Fall 2018!

As we prepared to make our transition to standards-based reports in the fall, it is important to remember "why", and to remember one of the elements that makes JPEC different and such an important opportunity for our Falcons and community.

Note from our Development Coordinator

Just as a reminder, please see a note from Mrs. Ulicny regarding support with sharing our upcoming Open House!

Share and Win!

At JPEC one of our biggest assets is the level of investment our families have in their student's success. Our best testimony to the #JPECdifference is you! We would like to celebrate our student successes, encourage participation and reward YOU.

We have an Open House scheduled July 25th, 2018, from 5:30-7:30. We invite you to keep an eye on our official page and share the post about the event on your facebook page. We will enter any family member or student into a drawing for a $10 Biggby gift card that shares off the original post (it must be off the original post on the Jackson Preparatory & Early College page, not the JPEC Family Page to count).

Don't fret if social media isn't your thing, word of mouth is still the most powerful advertising. Feel free to pick up some cards in the front office to share with friends directly. Anyone you invite that turns in a card will enter you in the drawing for an additional gift card. Cards may be picked up after July 9th in the office.

Relay for Life - Jackson

Please support one of our Falcon Leaders, Madelyn Schmidt, and JPEC by participating in our JPEC Team for Relay For Life of Jackson! We are in need of team members. What a great opportunity for our Falcon Family to come together around a great cause and shine a positive light on how tremendous our students and families are.

This year's Relay will be held August 3rd-4th from 6 pm to 6 pm at Cascades Falls Park (1401 S. Brown St. Jackson MI). Please use the button below to sign up and be a part of our JPEC Kindness Team!

See a video here to learn more about Relay for Life and to understand better this important opportunity.

Students (both EC and CP) who don't desire to participate in the 24-hour endurance walk are still welcome to come and enjoy themselves!

Falcon Broadcasting Network!
