  • Welcome to Early Childhood and Primary K-1!

    We look forward to working with your child and family during the ‘18-‘19 school year. 

    Our vision is to create a warm, creative, welcoming, and safe environment where parents and staff can help students become productive, responsible, and respectful citizens (Bulldogs).  In order to do so, we must implement school-wide expectations, reinforce traditions, celebrate successes, and lay a foundation for the future.

    We also strive to ensure the youngest students of the district experience a positive and successful start toward the district’s educational goals, with every effort made to utilize instructional practices that are developmentally appropriate for young students.

    A strong network of supportive families and a thriving community make CJ Early Childhood/Primary K-1 a wonderful place to learn, grow, visit, and work!
