Jump For Joy 30th  Anniversary

In the fall of 1987,  the members of Fort Mitchell Baptist Church began a new Mother’s Day Out Ministry under Pastor Dr. C. Michael Watts.   Lead by the tireless efforts of director Debbie Jump, a quality, Godly, caring program for children was developed.  When Debbie passed away in 2004, the school was renamed “Jump For Joy” to honor the memory of her dedication to the school.
 
What began as a Tuesday/Thursday nine-to-noon program for infants through age four grew into a fully accredited preschool including a Pre-K program.   Serving more than 100 students annually, the school has helped thousands of families by providing a safe, quality preschool for their children.
 

Your Help Is Needed! 

We need letters, pictures,  or anything you might have that can be used to build a memory book & create a slide presentation.  Students; Teachers;  Staff; Parents; Everyone!   If you have played any part in the school over these past years we need you to help.  Please share your memory in a letter and include any picture you might have.
 
If possible, please send copies of original photos.  Add your own memories in a personal letter.  Any original material will be handled with care.  To insure proper return of originals, please include your name and return address – if possible on the back.
