  • Let’s OPEN THE ROOF on Friday, October 14th for a Homecoming Tailgate to help raise funds for grants for Jonesboro Public Schools students K-12 as well as honor our Distinguished Alumni, Educator of the Year, and Community Partner of the Year!

    The Foundation for Jonesboro Public Schools has served as a partner to teachers with ideas for innovative teaching techniques and learning opportunities for their students.

    We would love to make the 2022–2023 school year the best year yet for our students by helping to make our teachers’ ideas a reality in the classroom!

    There will be plenty of food and fun, as entertainment will be provided by YOUR JPS student groups leading up to the big football game! We will also have a 50/50 raffle along with other JPS merchandise for sale at the tent.

    Please consider partnering with us at “A Stormy Night” – Homecoming Tailgate” and help our teachers enhance the quality of education and promote academic excellence for our students! We will, in turn, help market your company as an event partner and community supporter! You can download the sponsorship form HERE.

    Can we count you in and see you on Friday, October 14th?

    Take cover, a storm is coming!
