JIES PTA Newsletter - December, 2020
Hello friends,
Hello JIES families! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break and welcome back!

Thank you to all who came out for Chick-Fil-A biscuits. We had an AMAZING turn out which means we unfortunately sold out of biscuits. We will be doing another sale December the 18th and will adjust for more biscuits. We will also have someone with limited biscuits in the back for students riding the bus. There will again be chicken and sausage biscuits for $3.00 Be sure to get there early because supplies are limited! Cash only. Students can take their biscuit to class for breakfast and parents can enjoy theirs on the way to work.

As the holidays approach please click on the link and check out the staff's favorite things! Teacher Interest Survey. We will also be doing a hot cocoa bar this month for the teachers so be on the lookout for a sign-up genius. We will be doing another spirit night in January. The date is not set yet but we will get information out soon. Thank you to all who participated in the last one! It was a huge success!

Just a couple updates we have realized that CCSD may block some online gift cards such as Target, so keep that in mind when sending gifts. Also, we have found that the monthly newsletter has been going to the gmail Promotions tab. If you know anyone that is not receiving them, please let them know to check that tab.

The next PTA Zoom meeting will be this Thursday, December 3rd at 7:00. Please check the link below.

The PTA always welcomes your feedback and ideas! Please don't hesitate to contact us at the links below with your thoughts or questions. Don't forget to check out the teacher wish lists and if you are able to donate Lysol wipes or hand sanitizer the teachers greatly appreciate it!

** There are lots of free ways to support JIES with Publix, Harris Teeter, and Amazon (see links below) Don't forget to re-link your accounts for the new year with these retailers!!

Happy Holidays,
