School News

Congressman Barrow
On Tuesday, August 26, 2014, Congressman John Barrow visited Jenkins-White Elementary Charter School, bearing gifts for the students.  He was carrying two boxes full of books from the Library of Congress, which he donated to students because of their participation in Barrow’s Bookworms, the Congressman’s 20 Book Club.  Congressman Barrow encouraged all students to read and to earn the status of being a Barrow’s Bookworm.  The Faculty and Students presented a gift to Congressman Barrow of a Golden Retriever stuffed dog, wearing a Jenkins-White Elementary Charter School T-Shirt, in honor of his dog which appears on one of his campaign commercials.  Thank you Congressman Barrow for coming to our school.  We are honored!
