James Ward Elementary School Home
Please read the new uniform dress code.
Family orientation days will be Aug, 19 to Aug. 23. We will host orientation days for all James Ward families- both new & returning. On these days, parents will have the opportunity to pay fees, purchase new uniform/gym shirts, fill out important school documents, request to be a Level 1 or Level 2 volunteer and get Parent Portal access information. It is important for parents to attend these orientations.
I hope you're all enjoying your summers!
