Good Morning Families,
This is Mr. Ehmann with an important announcement for your child's online learning.    The majority of face to face teaching and learning will occur through Microsoft Teams.  Your child uses teams daily and should be able to access this very easily.  The student schedule for home learning is currently as follows:

8:00-8:50     iReady (work on daily- passing at least 2 lessons a week at 75% proficient of higher), Curriculum Assistance, iXL ELA lessons for 20 minutes daily
9:00-9:50         1st Core Block
10:00-10:50         2nd Core Block
11:00-11:50         3rd Core Block
1:00- 1:50         4th Core Block
2:00-2:30         Elective Teacher Office Hours

•    The first 20-30 minutes of each Core Instructional Block will include direct instruction, modeling, and sharing of resources by their core teacher.  The remaining 20-30 minutes will have the teacher available to students for support.
•    Students are encouraged to ask questions on the MS Teams Chat.  Teachers will respond within 24hrs if they are contacted on MS Teams chat or email.
•    Encore teachers will not have a live lesson.  Assignments will be sent for students to complete.  Teachers will be available for individual questions during office hours.

If your child can't participate at the designated time, they will be able to access the recorded learning and activity later.  We are planning on averaging about 4 hours of school time daily.  We will need parents to help to make sure students have their materials, have a daily schedule to learn, and to make sure students understand and complete the assigned learning tasks. 

Please reach out to us if you have additional questions.  More information is available on our school webpage


Hello and welcome to 6th grade science!


My name is Debra Vaught and while I am new to JCMS, I am not new to the world of teaching. I have been in education since 2002 which is when I graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in both math and science. I am a native of Fayetteville, NC and am super excited to be back close to family and friends. I have 4 kids of my own in the OCS system and could not be more thrilled to see how wonderful this learning community is across the age brackets. I look forward to exploring the vast world of science with your student in the year to come. Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns!


Go Knights!!
