This Week!

  • 12/19/19: SPREAD THE JBJ WORD!!! Jingle Bell Jazz at the Royal Oak Farmers Market from 6-9 p.m. Visit our NEW JBJ webpage for details about the event (parking, food, admission, etc). JBJ is fun for the whole family! Please help spread the word by sharing the JBJ FLYER on Facebook and with friends and family. Volunteers are needed! This event is a ton of fun but also a ton of work -- all for a great cause. We really do need EVERY parent to pitch in. There are several ways to volunteer: baking, donating baskets or gift cards, or working a shift. Unless noted, students are welcome to sign up for any of the volunteer slots. Please consider helping by adding your name to the sign up here: JBJ Donations & Staffing Sign Up

  • Band Photos are in and can be picked up in the MMR.

  • Our fundraising efforts from Barnes & Noble and English Gardens Tag Days yielded $425 (and counting)! Not bad for 6 hours of work. However, we could NOT have done it without MANY more hours of planning by some super volunteers. For this, we are grateful to: Kristin Blankenship, Linda Johnson, Shelley Willis and Donna Bonner (B&N) and Leah Barnett (Tag Days). Thank you so much!

  • Disney Chaperones: Please remember to get your background info and fingerprints to the District Office as stated in the emails you received!
