Joyner's not just a school, it's a community. It's not a place to be for six years of your life, it's a place that will change the rest of your life.

Helping Needy Families at Joyner

We hope you can join us in making the Holidays a little brighter for some of our needy families at Joyner.  We currently have our Snowman in the office (It's the JYJ version of the Angel Tree) from which you can select a needy student (Students have a number and we list sizes and gender/not names) to purchase necessities and perhaps a toy.  Once you select a student,complete your shopping and wrapping by Dec. 16th and leave the gifts with our Office Staff. 

Another project we have has been a pet project of mine for years.  Every December, parents, teachers, and friends of our school donate gift cards from Grocery Stores (Harris Teeter, Food Lion, Kroger, etc), Department Stores (Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, etc.) and Fast Food Restaurants (McDonalds, Burger King, etc) to distribute to needy families.  The last week of school before the Christmas break, I deliver these cards to needy families and help them get their shopping done. If you would like to participate in this project, please leave your gift cards with one of our Office Staff and we will make sure they brighten a needy family's holiday.
