Each Spring students from East and West Jay Middle Schools visit Taylor University and John Jay Center for Learning as part of the College Visitation Program. All Jay County 6th grade students are given an opportunity to experience a college campus firsthand.
Once again, Jay County third grade students have received dictionaries compliments of The Commercial Review and the Dictionary Project. The Dictionary Project is a nonprofit organization designed to raise money to provide a dictionary to third grade students in public schools. Over 500,000 students nationwide have received a dictionary through this program. Jay County schools were the first in Indiana to participate in the program starting in Spring 2003. The Commercial Review has agreed to provide funds for dictionaries for the third grade classes for every year going forward. The Portland Foundation serves as a facilitator for this program.
