Johnsonburg Area Elementary School

Welcome to Johnsonburg Area Elementary School. Learning and fun go hand in hand in our preschool through sixth-grade classrooms. We are a community of caring, dedicated professionals who work together to bring about the academic and personal success of every student in our care.

At JAES, students, parents, and teachers are all on the same team. Weekly communication packets support that team spirit by sharing information about upcoming events and samples of your child’s schoolwork. Watch for your child’s packet on Tuesdays.

A Message From Our Principal

Dear Johnsonburg Elementary School Families,

The students are permitted to wear shorts, skorts, or capris pants during the months of April, May, and June. These clothing items must be of moderate length. It is important that students are dressed appropriately for school and for the weather. I appreciate your cooperation regarding this matter.

The Nutrition Group does a wonderful job with our breakfast and lunch programs at the elementary and high school buildings. All students eat for free this school year! Please encourage your child to eat breakfast and/or lunch each day in our cafeteria. Especially on PSSA testing days!

On Tuesday, April 23rd, the students in grades 3–6 will begin taking the PSSA tests. Below is the schedule of testing dates. Please make every effort to have your child in school and on time these days.

  • English Language Arts: Grades 3–6, April 23–25
  • Mathematics: Grades 3–6, April 30–May 1
  • PSSA Science: Grade 4 only, May 2

There is additional information in today’s packet about the state testing. We want all our students to put forth their best effort!

Please continue to support your child with their academic tasks and assignments and encourage good behavior with our school wide “RAMS Rules”. A strong finish to this school year is a goal that all students should be striving to achieve.
