The community of Jennings with help from the Jennings First Baptist Church has graciously offered to donate most of the school supplies for the 2015-2016 school year. This is the 3rd year that they have done this and we appreciate it tremendously. CLICK HERE find an abbreviated list of school supplies which they will not be purchasing. These are the only supplies your child will need for the school year at this point.
The 7/8 Jennings Student Council will host our annual Back-to-School night on Tuesday, August 4th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. They will be serving sloppy joes, chips, drinks, & dessert. This is a time to see the classrooms & meet the teachers. Everyone is invited!

All offices are located in the new cafeteria annex. All other doors will remained locked throughout the day as a safety precaution. ALL VISITORS, including parents, must report to the office before going into any other building.
We will continue to use the Remind text service for the 2014-2015 school year to keep parents better informed. Through a service we are able to send important notices and reminders to each parent through text messaging. The service is absolutely free. We will be sending out notices and updates on regular basis. To sign up for the service simply text @jenningss to 81010. It will then prompt you to reply with your full name. Once that is complete you will start receiving notices from the school.
