The J-List

April 1, 2021

Please Be On Time!

Reminder to please be on time! We are noticing many students coming between 7:50 and 7:55 am. The car line is open from 7:30 - 7:50 am and closes at 7:50 am so our teachers can get to class. Please make every effort to start your child's day on time to avoid the parking lot "rush."

We are noticing MANY cars coming right at 7:50 which is creating a long line - this is making our teachers late to class. Remember - the car line is open starting at 7:30 am with NO wait!

Another thing you can do to help us move cars more quickly is encourage your child to open their own car door and be ready to hop out with backpacks on.

If you are late, please park your car and walk your child into the building. Please do not drop your child off in the parking lot as it isn't safe with cars and buses in the front area. Thanks so much for your help with this!

Just one day left and we've raised over $30,000!!! Amazing! Whether you are donating $1, $10, $100, or $1000 - EVERY dollar counts to benefit our school. How incredible would it be to have 100% participation?!

The pledge drive ends on Friday, April 2nd, at MIDNIGHT. Let's do this!!!

Did you log in, register, and then get stumped about how to donate ?

  1. Add yourself as a family member who may donate after you register. Then wait for the email/text. (More details on picture with white background)
  2. Add Family & Friends + Track Donations: Add yourself, as well as family and friends that might be willing to donate, and we'll send them a personalized version of the pledge request above. This information is secure and will not be shared with anyone.

Once you have added at least one family member or friend, your link to share on social media will become available, but we recommend adding at least ten to help your school reach its goal. After a donor is entered the verbiage changes to:

Add Family & Friends + Track Donations

The list below shows the family and friends you've added, along with their donation status, outstanding amount and received amount. (This includes you). You may click on a name for more information.

Counselor's Corner

As you may have heard, our school counselor, Mrs. Johnston, is on medical leave for the forseeable future. Please direct concerns or questions to Nicole Williams, Assistant Principal.

The core value for the month of April is peace, proving you care more about each other than winning an argument.
