Reminder- Friday Is Half-Day Of School. This Is A Change From Early Calendar Versions.

Memorial Day

Last Friday was a great success at JRB as our students listened to and participated in our annual Memorial Day assembly. We would love to thank all of those that were able to share during our event. Without your help, the ceremony would not be the same. Thank you.

Thank You Chaperones and Staff

We would like to take a moment to thank all of the 5th grade staff that worked so hard to make this year's visit to Camp Cody (Nature's Classroom) a great success. Additionally, a huge thank you goes out to all of the family chaperones that took time out of their busy schedules to join us in New Hampshire.

Finally, if you have a 5th grader that attended Camp Cody this year that has an interest in attending one of their regular sessions over the summer, the office has come very generous gift cards that can be used. Please contact Nat North (nnorth@awrsd.org) for more information.

Attention Parents Of Current 2nd Graders (Next Year's 3rd Grade)
Also From The Nurse's Office

The Health office is in need of new packages of underwear for both boys (sizes 4/5, 6/8, 10/12 and 12/14) and girls (sizes 4, 6 and 8). Any donations would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!!!!
