Preparing Today's Child for Tomorrow's World

Preparing Today's Child for Tomorrow's World


Mark your calendars for our family literacy night: APRIL 3, 2024, 6:30-7:30 pm.

We are so excited to offer this special event for our K-5 families. You will have the opportunity to create fun writing projects as a family. Please see below for a preview of the night’s offerings:

I Write My Life
Join us as we discover creative ways to encourage kids (and adults) to journal. We will explore:

Journals for different age brackets
Journaling through prompts
Journaling Creatively
Journaling as a time capsule
Most of all, we will spend time on how journaling is both personal but also can take on different customized forms that will actually get writers to look forward to writing about their lives!

The Best Part of Me!
Physical traits are often handed down to our children and are so special. For example, some have smiling eyes or curly hair or an olive complexion. During this session, parents will help their children identify and write about a special physical characteristic that runs in the family! We'll also take a picture to create a frame-worthy memento.

Prehistoric T-ext!
Imagine a world without memes, without emails, without text messages, and without… (dramatic pause) internet!! We welcome you to accompany us on a journey through time to a world where communication without modern technology happened every single day. A time where screens were but a dream, and paper ruled the planet. A time where entire words were written using all their letters. Then, the words were placed into envelopes and sent to others via a system we now call “snail mail.” In other words (pun intended), please, join us for a fun night of prehistoric texting to friends and family!

A Family Adventure!
When you are done with this session, you will walk away with a story based on a fun adventure you did with your family. The unique and fun aspect of this family writing project is the story will be told from all your perspectives! Come join this adventure to create a special memento of a great family memory.

We will also have door prizes, session give aways, and family fun! We hope to see you there! Please look for an invitation soon and an opportunity to RSVP. Each offering will have two sessions so your family can pick two! First session will be from 6:30 pm- 7:00 pm and the second session will be from 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm. Johnson Elementary’s SPRING into Literacy Family Night!

Help Wanted: New Bike Racks in 2024

As we strive to create a safe and enriching environment for our students, we are reaching out to you with an exciting opportunity to contribute to the
well-being of our school community.

Johnson Parent Teacher Organization is currently working on a project to purchase new bike racks for our school premises. Encouraging students to bike to school not only promotes a healthy and active lifestyle but also has numerous benefits for our community and the environment. Here are a few reasons why supporting this initiative is crucial:

Promoting Health and Well-being: Biking is a fantastic way for students to stay physically active. By providing sufficient bike racks, we aim to make it convenient for students to choose an eco-friendly mode of transportation and incorporate exercise into their daily routines.

Reducing Traffic Congestion: With more students biking to school, we can contribute to reducing traffic congestion during drop-off and pick-up times. This not only eases the flow of traffic around the school, but also promotes a safer environment for everyone.

Environmental Sustainability: Biking is a sustainable mode of transportation that significantly reduces our carbon footprint. By supporting this initiative, you contribute to instilling environmental consciousness in our students and fostering a sense of responsibility towards the planet.

Building a Sense of Community: Providing adequate bike racks helps create a sense of community within our school. It encourages students to connect with their peers who share similar interests, promoting a friendly and inclusive atmosphere.

Teaching Responsibility: Biking to school teaches students responsibility as they learn to take care of their bikes and follow safety guidelines. It instills valuable life skills and promotes a sense of independence.


To make this project a reality, we are seeking your support through donations. Your generous contribution will go directly towards purchasing
and installing new bike racks, ensuring that our students have a safe and convenient place to park their bikes.

If you would like to contribute, we’ll have a donation page up soon. Every donation, big or small, makes a significant impact on the success of this project.
