Welcome to James Walker Elementary

  • Welcome JWE Families,

    We have had a great start to the semester, and I can hardly believe Spring Break is almost here.  Once we return from Spring Break, we plan to start our State of Missouri Testing Window the week of April 1st.  We plan to test our students through the first week of May.  Third, fourth and fifth grade students participate in the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP Test).  Third and fourth grade will take assessments in Math and English Language Arts while fifth grade will be tested in Math, English Language Arts and Science.  As we get closer to the testing window, we will send out our testing schedule. 

    Last Spring, our students outperformed the last 3 Blue Springs School District National Blue Ribbon Elementary Blue Ribbon Schools!!!  This is quite an achievement for our students!!!  We want to continue this mark of excellence, but need your help supporting the students emphasizing the need to do your best.    

    If you have any questions or compliments, please call or send them my way at kflax@bssd.net.

    And as always, thank you for all you do for JWE, our students and staff!! 

    Dr. Flax


  • MAP Testing Tips


    Help your child have a successful MAP experience:


    • Know the testing dates. April 2nd - May 9th 
    • Avoid scheduling appointments during testing dates. Please schedule all doctor's appointments and vacations around these dates.
    • Be well rested. Plan bedtime 30 minutes earlier than usual. Turn off the TV, video games, and computers early in the evening.
    • Eat a good breakfast.
    • Be on time for school. Students arriving late often feel rushed and anxious.
    • Have a positive attitude. Our kids look to us to set the tone for the day. Smiles are contagious!
