From the Principal
On behalf of the students, parents and staff of Jim Stone Elementary School, welcome to our website and to our school. I trust that you will find many of the wonderful things that make us who we are as you browse, and that is a school of excellence. Jim Stone is recognized by the United States Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, and this is not a designation that we take lightly. It takes hard work and dedication to achieve this status, and we are truly blessed to be able to maintain a high level of curricular rigor and a determination in instilling character in our students along the way.
Each day, we affirm our students after we celebrate our country with the Pledge of Allegiance. An affirmation is a positive statement that can help to challenge and overcome negative thoughts. When you repeat encouraging statements often and believe them, you can start to make positive changes. When healthy self-esteem grows, kids are more confident, work harder, and are more successful. Mahatma Ghandi said to “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” At Jim Stone we are committed to do our part in helping our students “Be the Change.”
Enjoy our webpage, and blessings to all of you!
Principal Mark Lewis, Ed.S.
