Mrs. Caldon, our amazing office manager at Jefferson Middle School recently received a Friend of Education Award by the CEA. The award was presented by CEA representative KC Longoria at the school wide final awards assembly on Monday. Caldon is a favorite with the staff of JMS. In addition to managing the office, keeping the teacher's in supplies, and fundraising for our kids, she works especially hard to make the staff at JMS feel appreciated with creative gifts and treats. She is one of the key people that make JMS truly a special place to work. On behalf of your 'Cougar Family', Congratulations, Mrs. Caldon for this well deserved award!

For the second year, Mount Moriah Lodge in Caldwell has sponsored a reading contest for JMS students. The contest kicked off just prior to Spring Break and challenged students to put in time reading. For every 100 pages read, a student received an entry into the drawing. This year the contest saw a multitude of entries as reading increased throughout the student body. Six Kindles, complete with screen protectors, covers, and a $20 gift card were presented to two students per grade at the end of the year assembly. Obed Tovar, Maritza Luna, Alex Callister, Junnie Morales Alvarez, Jonathan Phillips, and Daisy Estrada each had their name drawn and received their award. A special shout out to the Mount Moriah Lodge for sponsoring the contest, and to lodge members Hess, Cagle, and Burger for presenting the awards.
8th graders Courtney Williams and Ezra Hernandez were each tabbed with Jefferson's Athlete of the Year awards at the end of the year assembly. Williams, a standout runner for the cross country and track team, also was a key contributor on the basketball court. Hernandez, a versatile athlete on the football field, dominated on the wrestling mat and also found success in track and field.
The Jefferson Athlete of the Year honors are awarded each year to an 8th grade girl and boy who best demonstrate leadership, academics, and athletics. Congratulations to this year's recipients for their well deserved honors.
