Our student council raised a lot of money for Animal Allies by selling Valentine's grams. Students had a blast meeting Gus and learning more about the work Animal Allies does.

Let's get to the point!

Reading is a novel idea!

It’s a grade level Reading Competition between advisories

Start Date: Tuesday, February 22nd

End Date: Tuesday, March 15th

Prize: Top 2 advisories from each grade level get an hour of Recreational Time

Did you know that February is "I LOVE TO READ" month? Please encourage the kids to read at home throughout the month. Keep track of the pages read. The advisory in each grade level with the highest total wins the competition.

Together, we are Jedlicka Middle School!

It was a great week. A highlight for me was our virtual assembly on Thursday. Our superintendent gave a guest presentation to the kids. Be sure to ask your student(s) what they thought. I am incredibly excited to see the faces of many of our students on Monday.

Have a great weekend and Go RAILS!
