Upcoming Events Spring 23
East Jay Elementary recently celebrated two very special ladies for their retirement. Mrs. Terri (Franklin) Bone was hired at Jay Schools in 1985 to teach first grade at Pennville Elementary. She spent the next two years with the same students, teaching second grade in 1986 and third grade in 1987. She taught 4 years at Pennville before teaching at Judge Haynes Elementary. There, she taught third grade until the building’s closing in the Spring of 2018. Throughout the consolidation period, Terri continued teaching third grade at General Shanks, and finally, East Jay Elementary. Regardless of the school, if you have worked with Terri or were a student in her class, there is a funny story or a special memory to treasure! Terri is newly married and loving life. She and her husband, Mike, have been busy traveling and getting their new home settled. Mrs. Lori Sims started subbing in the corporation in 1994. She subbed at all the schools in our corporation until she started full time at Judge Haynes in 1996. She worked as an aide in the Kindergarten rooms and as the “time out lady” when needed. Lori made the move to East Jay in 1998 as an instructional assistant, but spent the last several years as the secretary for East Jay Middle School, and eventually East Jay Elementary. During several summers, Lori subbed, when needed, for Summer School. One summer she worked 1:1 doing sign language with a student at East Elementary. Wherever she was, you can bet there were candies in her desk for you! Lori is now working on some projects at home, and enjoying time with her grandchildren. You both have touched the lives of many students through the years and made many life-long friendships along the way. It is our sincerest wish that you both have a wonderful retirement. Please know that we miss your smiling faces and your caring hearts. HAPPY RETIREMENT FROM YOUR FAMILY AT EAST JAY ELEMENTARY!
