1/2 Day Monday January 27th

Parking Challenge

With the snow of the winter, we have a few less spots in our lovely parking lot. That can be very frustrating, and we certainly understand that. However, we need to ask that you do not park in the fire line along the school for any reasons (with the exception of preschool pickup). Throughout the day we have many vans, buses, and the occasional emergency vehicle that need the area for quick access to the school. Thank you so much for your understanding.

Valentine Reminder

As your teachers send home information about Valentine's Day, please remember that we are currently not able to hand out food (including candy) to other students. Feel free to find pencils and erasers, but those delicious red heart-shaped lollipops (and all other foods) can't be distributed at school.

Parent Conference Sign-Up

We have been getting many requests asking about parent teacher conferences which are February 6th and 13th. We will be sending out a text message when our Sign-Up.com pages are ready (likely this Friday). Please be on the lookout for that information.

Pizza Kit Pick-Up Thursday

The Little Caesar's Pizza Kits will arrive this Thursday, January 23rd. Pick-up time is 3:30pm to 6:00pm in the JRB Lobby. Pizza Kits not picked up will be donated to charity. Any questions can be directed to Brenda Brown at bbrown@awrsd.org. Thank you for your support for this fundraiser!

It Is Still Cold

Please remember to send your children in with clothing to head out into the elements. We try to go outside whenever we can, so proper cold weather gear is a must.


Please don’t forget that we need your 5th graders' baby picture for the yearbook!

You can post at anytime by going to https://www.jrb-pta.org/yearbook to create or access your account then navigate to – Shared photos folder – 5th Grade Who is that Baby Folder. Do remember to tag your 5th grader to their photo but do not put their name in the caption, we don’t want to give anyone away.

Yearbook committee volunteers are needed!

If you are interested in participating, please reach out to Tiffani Sell at xsell515@gmail.com. We may have 1 quick meeting to center on this, however, all work that is needed can be done at home; the only requirement is a computer.
