CLJ Carnival

Friday, April 10th, the annual middle school carnival sponsored by C.L. Jones middle school student council was held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. This year the student council raffled 6 bicycles because of the generosity of Isaac and Lucas Svoboda. The smiles on the faces of the children who were the winners of the bicycles was truly priceless. The lucky raffle winners were; Kat Bock, Laynee Joyce, Levi Burchell, Kelsey Osborn, Bella Reed, and Carlos Antillon. Thank you to everyone for making the carnival a fun-filled family event for our students and community.

Grade 6 Mix-It-Up at Lunch

Thank you Mrs. Space, Mrs. Paulsen, and Mrs. Jacobsen for organizing Mix-It-Up at lunch. On Friday, February 27th, grade six came to lunch to dine and converse. Students were randomly organized to sit at tables. Students ate and conversed with students they don't normally sit with at lunch. Great community building activity!

Child Identity Theft
In Internet 7, the students have been studying about Scams and Schemes as it relates to Identity Theft. A video on identity theft was shared with the students. This video does an excellent job of explaining child identity theft and the steps a child and parent can take to keep it from happening to them. The link for the video the students watch is below.

iPad Self-Insurance Plan

Students in grades 6 - 8, who have enrolled in the C. L. Jones Middle School iPad Self-Insurance plan are able to take their school issued iPad home. This plan is a crucial piece as we move forward with digital learning at the middle school. The self-insurance plan offers families protection against the high cost one will incur if their student accidently breaks their school issued iPad.


Digital devices are an outstanding tool one can use to expand learning opportunities for all students, however they are expensive. The iPad, cover, charger, and cable purchased for our middle school students has a replacement cost of nearly $500. Replacing an iPad completely does happen but the biggest issue is replacing a broken iPad screen. The cost of replacing a screen runs anywhere from $112 to $150 depending on other repairs which need to be done resulting from the damaged screen. With the self-insurance plan, for $35 a students iPad will be insured against accidental damage or theft up to $200. Any repair or replacement cost above $200 will be charged to the student, parent, or caregiver.


Here are the key components of the middle schools self-insurance plan:

  • $35 gives the student $200 protection against any iPad repair

  • the self-insurance plan is offered to all 6 - 8 students

  • the plan covers accidents at school as well as at home

  • any student who will be taking their iPad home must participate in the self-insurance plan

Student's are financially responsible for repairs to their school issued iPad that are determined to be the result of negligence. The self-insurance plan is a financial safe guard against the high price of repairs. One may download the self-insurance document, complete the form and return it to the middle school office with a check for $35 to be enrolled in the plan immediately.

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
Robert F. Kennedy Capetown, June 6th 1966
