1st JES Student Council Debate & Election
CONGRATULATIONS TO TARIK WHITE in Ms. Pace's 5th grade class. He was chosen as a winner in the DAR Essay Contest which consisted of 165 entries written on American history. He will be recognized at the DAR board meeting in March and at a future board meeting of the BCSS. Good job, Tarik! JES is very proud of you!
CONGRATULATIONS to Tequarious Gregory of JES (Mrs. Newman's lst grade class and Mr. Bell's art class) for winning the 2nd annual Christmas card contest! Last year the Butts County School System (BCSS) started a program to showcase student art work by personalizing the BCSS Christmas card with the winning student's artwork. The winner was selected by the Jackson Council of the Arts. Tequarious's work will be mailed to all the BCSS partners this holiday season.
For a unit of study on economics, JES lst and 2nd grade TAG (Talented & Gifted) students created a town of businesses and stores. In the town, students "earned" money by producing items and selling services. They also acted as consumers by "spending" their money at various stores.
Ms. Nail's 2nd grade BUSY ELVES!

SACS/AdvancED External Review Visit
AdvancED/SACS CASI District Accreditation
Welcome to Butts County Schools AdvancED/SACS CASI general information site! This site provides information regarding the district accreditation protocol offered by AdvancED. Currently, the Butts County School District and each of its schools are fully accredited. This means that annually, every public school in Butts County meets or exceeds the accreditation standards that support student achievement. In October 2008, Butts County Schools was one of the school districts to undergo an AdvancED District Accreditation. On February 23-26, 2014, the school district will again host an AdvancED External Review Team to certify its district accreditation for another five years.
