A New Visitor At JRB

If you've heard from your student that there was a dog in school, well, it's true. Cully the Bernese mountain therapy dog, who has been a successful participant and Overlook Middle School and Oakmont High School, is now visiting Briggs in preparation for reading with first and second graders. Full details will come home to first and second grade families from their teachers. Our thanks to Cully and her person, former JRB principal Candy Wright, for this cool idea and their time.

Little Caesar’s Pizza Results

Thanks to everyone who supported the JRB Little Caesar's Pizza Fundraiser! We sold 100 pizza/goodie kits bringing in $350.00 each for the Nature's Classroom Scholarship Program and the JRB Enrichment Fund. Thanks again for your support!

Band Concert

After braving the challenging driving conditions, our two school bands were able to provide a solid show for the many guests that filled the seats. This was the first performance for many of these budding musicians, and they handled the situation with grace and tremendous effort.

The 100th Day Of School Was February 6th

James Patterson and Scholastic Book Club Grant

John R Briggs was one of the lucky winners of the 2018 James Patterson and Scholastic Book Clubs Classroom Library Grant in the amount of $500. Mrs. Brenda Brown (KC) wrote an essay on how she would use the award to purchase books and materials for the JRB library, enhancing its existing “awesomeness!” Ms. Lori Rabeler was able to select many new items for the library to be delivered by the end of February.

Preschool Fun

The preschool is making this frigid weather a learning experience. They predicted, observed, and then documented, what happens when you throw very hot water into freezing cold air. Their reactions were true astonishment.

Extended Day Update

As of today, Thursday's (Feb 7th) 1/2 day for extended day is full. Those that have already signed up should contact extended day regarding lunch needs.
