Principal's Message

  • On behalf of the entire staff, I welcome you to “Marvelous” Miles Jones Elementary School, Home of the Jaguars! I am thrilled to serve as the principal of this fine school as I enter my 13th year as an administrator where students, staff, and parents are the center of success.  We here at Miles Jones believe that our scholars should be provided with ample opportunities to explore, learn, and grow in a safe and nurturing school environment.

    Along with my staff, I will continue the legacy of success by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will incorporate a variety of instructional methods to meet the needs of each and every student.  It is my sincere desire to provide expanded opportunities for our students to acquire the skills to become productive citizens and lifelong learners in a vastly changing society.

    I anticipate a most successful year as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of all students here at “Marvelous” Miles Jones Elementary School.  As the Principal, my door is always opened and I welcome your input.  “A Great Team Can do A Lot Together.”  Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year ever.

    Sonya Shaw, Principal

    Proud Instructional Leader of MJJ

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 17, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Friday! Tonight's updates: Mask Reminders – Parents and caregivers, please be sure students have their masks on when approaching and boarding the school bus. This helps ensure a safe and speedy boarding process. Please also make sure to send your students with a mask that fits their face. Adult size masks are not appropriate for small children, as they do not fit tightly (see CDC graphic below). If you need pediatric masks, your school can provide them. Thank you for helping keep RPS safe! COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate – RPS employees, please be reminded that you have until October 1 to submit full proof of vaccination or obtain a religious/medical exemption. Though I pray it doesn't come to this, please understand that any employee who does not meet the requirements of the mandate will face progressive discipline, including loss of employment.

  • RPS Direct Update - September 15, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, While we've been overjoyed to return to school despite COVID, we've also been heartbroken by another pandemic that plagues our community – gun violence. I'm devastated to share that, in the past 48 hours, five RPS students have been shot. We've also lost two students to other causes (unrelated to gun violence or COVID). These tragic events remind us of the grief and trauma that so many RPS students, families, and staff face daily. The RPS family is hurting tonight. Let us all pause this evening to check on one another, support one another, and extend grace and love to one another.
