The weeks are flying by this year. It is hard to believe we are already approaching the last days of September. By now, students and staff alike are getting used to their daily routines. Soon we will feel the change in temperature, allowing us to enjoy the crisp air of autumn. But before we say goodbye to all of the summer fun, we want to make sure you join us for Ready, Set, Glow!
Even though shirt orders have now closed, there is nothing stopping you from registering for the event. Please click the button below to see the registration form. The event takes place September 28th and will run from 6:30-8:00 PM.
There are numerous raffle items available at Ready, Set, GLOW as well! From a signed JD Martinez baseball to lift tickets at Mount Wachusett, there is clearly something for everyone to take a chance on. Click on the link below to see more.
Half Day Thursday
Please remember that next week there is a half day on Thursday, 9/27. Parent pick-up will begin at 11:50 and buses will be loaded around 12:00. Half days are always very busy in the office so it would help us so much if you let us know earlier rather than later if your child's method of dismissal is being changed. Please know that the Extended Day program is full for that day. Students who are already signed up for Extended for 9/27 should have ordered a lunch through them or should bring a lunch.
Parent teacher conferences will take place on October 11th and 18th. We are using an online system, Signup.com, to organize our conference sign-ups. You will receive an email Friday afternoon with the link to sign-up, and it will also be listed in the "quick links" on the school's web page. Signup.com allows you to choose your times and change them as needed. If you have any difficulty signing up for a slot, don't hesitate to contact your teacher or the main office for support.
Lines from the Art Room
I’d like to thank everyone who donated their $1.00 towards the purchase of art portfolios for the students. Each year I have a handful of people who donate an extra dollar or two to put toward portfolios for children in need. I can’t tell you how much it warms my heart to be lucky enough to work in a community that so clearly cares for one another. We are still accepting donations if anyone would still like to send theirs in. Thank you again!
Mrs. DiSalle, JRB Visual Art
