ISAT testing breakfast of champions!! Good luck!!
Stop behind the crosswalks people. Its not rocket science.
20 MPH IN SCHOOL ZONES.
We are quite tired of the rude drivers cussing us out for them blocking crosswalks, & running stop signs.
What is our District Code for PowerSchool??
Teacher friends....this is a great idea. Mount your tissue box under a shelf so that your students don’t have to handle the box to get a tissue.

I saw this on Pinterest and thought some could use this during these crazy times. 💗

To make this work, you’ll need an under-the-shelf storage basket and a pair of needle-nose pliers or wire cutters to cut a gap for the tissues.

Under-the-shelf storage basket like the one pictured. 👇🏼

Does anyone have info or a link to the current plan to reopen?
The American Academy of Pediatrics calls for schools to reopen this fall and students to be "physically present." From the announcement "…the preponderance of evidence indicates that children and adolescents are less likely to be symptomatic and less likely to have severe disease resulting from SARS-CoV-2 infection. In addition, children may be less likely to become infected and to spread infection."

Maddie and Sam went to Chief Joe, and tonight they went to Prom together!! 💕
With everything going on is there any information on how to register our incoming kindergarten. I know it was supposed to be on the 14th, but I just wanted to reach out and make sure we didn’t miss something. Thanks for everything you are doing!
Happy National School Librarian Day Heidi Muldowney Hill
How can we use iread at home? Razkids? Zearn? Any others?
A little something I made to keep up all from going stir crazy. :) Enjoy!
My kindergartner signed up for the Cub Scouts today and it looks like it will be a lot of fun. If you want to check it out with your kids, come to Pack 62's next recruiting night on September 13th at 6:00pm at Meridian Methodist located at 235 E Pine Ave, Meridian, Idaho 83642.

Scouting is adventure, family, fun, character, leadership and so much more.

In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

Scout me in.

As road construction continues near Chief Jo in the coming weeks on both Chateau and Jericho, we hope you'll consider alternate routes to and from school such as walking and using the back pathways into our school from Blue Heron and Hunter. We also thank you in advance for your patience with the additional traffic that this project might create during pick up and drop off.

Please keep student and crossing guard safety in mind as you drop off or pick up students from school. If pedestrians or crossing guards are in the crosswalk, drivers should not enter, idle, or drive through the crosswalk. Please be mindful of crossing guards instructions when driving and walking in our school zones.

All students should now have their school-loaned devices (ipad or laptop), and should be bringing them to school each day and home each afternoon. Thank you for reminding your student to charge the device each evening at home, so that learning is not interrupted. Optional device insurance coverage is available through Oct 31; see the West Ada site for detail or contact our school office.

Huge thanks to volunteers from Rock Harbor Church for removing old and well-worn slats from our school fencing and replacing with lovely and new! Two of the volunteers are grandparents to Chief Jo first grader, Bradley S! Our school is so lucky to be part of such a generous community!!

With over 600 students and staff attending school everyday, our parking lot can get crowded. Just a reminder that you may want to park on side streets and take the pathways to avoid the congestion in the main lot. Please remember to not block/park in our surrounding neighbors’ driveways. Also always use crosswalks (and look out for our awesome crossing guards) so we can keep pedestrians safe and cars aren’t caught off guard.

Can't wait to see our kindergartners and parents tonight!

Are you a 2021/2022 Kindergarten student or parent? If so save the date August 23rd to attend Kindergarten Popsicle on the Playground at Chief Jo! From 6-7 PM bring your kindergartner and meet Kindergarten Teachers Ms. Shidal and Mrs. Brilz, Principal Mrs. Hart, potential classmates, and other Chief Joseph kindergarten families. Let's help ease the transition into elementary school by getting to know some new friends before school starts.

*Because of a playground paving project, this event may need to take place on the lawn on the south side of the school instead of the blacktop. Children will still be able to enjoy the play equipment, but may not have access to school restrooms.
