Let us run with endurance the race set before us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus
who is the author and finisher of our faith.
Hebrews 12: 1,2

SPRING PROGRAM - We hope you enjoyed the Spring Program last night! Thank you to Mr. Siewert for leading the band and to Miss Heather for preparing and for putting together a wonderful and joyful program for us to enjoy!

BAND EXPLORATION - Mr. Siewert has invited students in grades 3-6 to explore band on Thursday, May 19th in the afternoon. It will be a great time for students to check out different instruments and ask questions about band. Then they can prayerfully consider if band is something they are interested in for the 2022-2023 school year.

FIELD DAY - Field Day will be on Friday, May 20th. We are still looking for a few parent volunteers for stations and team leaders. Please email the school office if you would like to help office@johnirelandschool.org. Please make sure your children have water bottles (labeled with their names) and shoes (and socks) to run in for field day on Friday afternoon. They encouraged to wear their team colors (check your emails for a message sent yesterday). Pray for a warm and sunny afternoon for our outdoor field day event!

SCHOLARSHIPS - If you applied for a scholarship, information will be sent home next week (May 20th) in the Friday Folders. Sorry for the delay in getting this information to you. I, like you, am navigating through this new process in TADS. Please let me know if you have any questions.

HANGING BASKETS - Thank you to those who purchased baskets or donated to our Wolf Ridge Fundraiser last weekend. Special thanks to the second grade parents who helped and to Family Fresh for providing the baskets. We raised just over $1,800 for our future Wolf Ridge trips.

JIPAC, Parent Advisory Committee - A huge thank you to Chris Mish for his involvement and leadership with our parent group! He is stepping down after this year. We appreciate his support, organization, time, and cooperation!

Blessings to you!
