Joy James Elementary School


 REACH High School Egg Hunt with Students at Joy James Elementary
  On Thursday, April 2nd, REACH High School held the annual Easter egg hunt for kindergarten students from Joy James Elementary. There were 80 students from Joy James joining in the fun to "hunt" 1,500 plastic candy filled eggs.
When the students arrived, pairs were matched up with a REACH "buddy" to spend time with during their visit to our campus. The fun started with the coloring of Easter pictures and bags to hold all of the eggs that would soon be gathered. The guests also enjoyed juice and a cookie as they colored.

The Easter egg hunt was a huge success and ended within a couple of minutes. The guests spent a short while discovering the treasures in the plastic eggs. Then, it was picture time and time to load back on the bus to make it back to Joy James in time for lunch.
It was a great day and everyone's already looking forward to next year!!

Garden on the Go Visits Joy James

Garden on the GoThe Tarrant County Food Bank brought their Garden on the Go to Joy James Elementary on Tuesday, Oct. 14th.  This was a fabulous opportunity for the Sansom Park community to purchase bags of fresh fruits and vegetables at the incredible price of $5.00 per bag.  Each bag contained about 20 – 25 pounds of produce.  Some of the items were tomatoes, apples, pears, bananas, two different kinds of squash, sweet potatoes and much more.  Once a month The Garden on the Go will set up at Joy James Elementary. 

Thank you to the Tarrant County Food Bank employees who very kindly distributed the food.
