Jonestown Family Center for Education and Wellness
A Place of Hope and Happiness
 
   
   


Mission:

The purpose of the Jonestown Family Center is to improve the general welfare of people in Jonestown and the surrounding area. The Family Center strives to increase educational and health opportunities through its programs.


The Jonestown Family Center follows a Christian philosophy, focusing on respect for each person as a child of God. All programs strive for the full development of the human person. We believe that education must be holistic -- mind, body and spirit.

The Jonestown Family Center for Education and Wellness is a separately incorporated sponsored ministry of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary.

Thanks to all of you who help us during the year! Gratefully, Sr. Teresa and the staff at the Jonestown Family Center.

LET’S MOVE, JONESTOWN!

First lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” curriculum was our focus this summer. Pre-schoolers came in the morning for a healthy breakfast, then played active games, learned about healthy fruits and vegetables, had lunch, and played “My Plate” games. Six to ten year olds came in the afternoon for PE at the Jonestown Elementary School gym, lunch, learning about “My Plate”, swimming every week at the Tunica Aquatic Center, and reading food books. Some wanted to know why they couldn’t come on weekends!

Our Montessori and toddler programs are beginning this month. The first day of school is always exciting here.

Thank you for all you do to support our education and wellness programs.

Gratefully, in Christ,

Sister Teresa Shields and staff of the Jonestown Family Center
