JA Cub Report
February 3, 2020
It was recently brought to our attention that some of you have not been receiving our parent newsletter - the JA Cub Report. We are not exactly sure what the problem was, or is, but have started by creating a new distribution list. If you are speaking with other JA parents and they are not receiving the JA Cub Report please have them contact the school office so we can correct the problem. If you have recently changed phone numbers or email address, please let us know.
If you would like back issues of the JA Cub Report please email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be sent to you.
