2014 Title I Reward School

We were so proud to learn that our school is a 2014 Title I Reward School.  The Augusta Chronicle says we were given this award "for being among the 10 per cent of Title I schools in the state making the most progress over three years on state assessments."

In his letter to Mr. Kelton, Dr. Barge, State School Superintendent says, "As we continue to raise expectations for all students in our state, schools like yours make me confident we will reach our goal of providing a rigorous and relevant education to all students in Georgia...We appreciate the hard work being done by you and your staff to meet the needs of your students and provide them with a quality school program."

Administrators, teachers, staff and, certainly, students do all work hard at Jenkins-White to be successful.  We will continue to work hard but we really appreciate that our efforts are being recognized by the State of Georgia!

Welcome Mr. Kelton

Jenkins-White Elementary Charter School is pleased to welcome Mr. Earl Kelton as our new Principal.  Mr. Kelton came to us from C.T. Walker Traditional Magnet School where he was the Assistant Principal.  Mr. Kelton has quickly become immersed in our school and its activities and is busy meeting and getting to know students, teachers, staff and parents.  We look forward to working together as a community to best support our students' learning.

Storyland Theatre

We offer our Governing Board member, Mrs. Barbara Feldman, a huge thank you for facilitating our visits to the Storyland Theatre.  Our students have enjoyed their field trips to see a variety of Storyland Theatre productions.  To extend student learning, Jenkins-White received a special treat - Mrs. Feldman visited classes to talk about the story and the production.  What a wonderful opportunity for our school community!

Governing Board News

When Jenkins-White's charter was renewed on July 1, 2011, an important part of the charter became governance by a governing board.  Our governing board is meeting monthly and even had a Meet 'n Greet with the local board, attended a Charter School Conference and held a retreat for this dedicated group.  Attached are the minutes from their most recent meeting for you to read so that you can be a part of what's happening with our charter.  If you would like to see the minutes from other meetings, please contact Mrs. Sana Reedy at Jenkins-White.  

Principal's Book of the Month

Each month Mr. Kelton will share a book with all of Jenkins-White.  Then all of the classes participate in a variety of activities that extend their understanding of the book.  

School Creed

What do you see when you look at me?
I am a Jenkins-White Bruin!

A heart filled with pride,
A spirit filled with the motivation to achieve,
A mind focused on academic excellence.
Ever striving, leading the way,
Making my place in history.
Jenkins-White Bruin!
That's me!
