Thank you!

April is volunteer appreciation month. We are so fortunate at Joyceville to have wonderful volunteers who support our school, our students and our teachers. We thank each and every volunteer.... class trip chaperones, SAC members, classroom volunteers, athletic supporters (including those who drive students to their events), program supporters, and those who support the school through their generous donations and time.

Summer Programs

Read A-Lot and Math in Action programs will not be running for our students this year. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Diamond.

Our Open House for new Kindergarten students is on May 14th 4:30-5:30

A Few Reminders...

  • please ensure our bus drop off lane stays clear in the mornings and at the end of the school day - parents/guardians can park in the lot or on the road
  • please make sure end-of-day arrangements are made with your child's teacher (via a note or the agenda) and that your child knows how he/she is going home. We are finding that we are losing instructional time the last half hour of the day with having to disrupt classes to pull students out or call in with pick up information. Students are learning right up to 3:35 and if parents/guardians can wait to pick up until then, we'd appreciate it.
  • if you are picking up your child(ren) at the end of the day, please ensure that they are picked up at 3:35. We don't have supervision after school.
