Parent/Teacher Conferences
Parent Teacher Conferences are the evenings (4:00 pm to 8:00 pm) of February 13th & 15th. Classroom teachers have sent out an on-line sign up where you can find a day/time that meets your schedule. If you are not able to access the on-line sign up, please contact your child's teacher. 

During conferences, th JES PTO provides dinner four our teachers. We are looking for a little more help. If you are able to donate food and/or monetarily, please use the links below for Tuesday & Thursday night. Can you believe that we are already having "spring" conferences? Thank you!!

Focus on FUN, not the FOOD!
As we approach Valentine's Day activities, families are reminded that our school would like to shift the focus on fun and celebration rather than worry and concern over food allergies and unhealthy, sugary foods.  Our district has adopted a Wellness Policy (#533) that addresses this issue.  We encourage non-food items such as fun trinkets, stickers, bubbles, pencils, etc.  It is much more fun for all the kids when they can celebrate together and not feel excluded.  Please be mindful when choosing Valentine's cards, as many of them may contain candy.  The State Department of Education requires that all food treats be store bought and wrapped.  Please do not send any loose candies in envelopes.  If you have any questions about your child's classroom please contact Nurse Marianne.Thank you.
