Thank you to the K and PK teachers for organizing YELLOW Day at Folsom! Please share out pictures with me from the day.

Today, 7th grader Jordan Rodriguez was recognized for her winning t-shirt design for South Jersey Industries. The design will be worn by the SJI team during the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk. Congrats Jordan!!

Enrollement for FSA and Dependent Care

AFLAC will be onsite next Thursday and Friday, May 23rd and 24th for the annual enrollment for the FSA and Dependent Care accounts. They will also be available if you have any questions on your AFLAC account or would like more information on any AFLAC products. All benefit eligible employees must meet with AFLAC. If you are not interested in the FSA account you will need to sign a waiver for that. There are signup sheets on Lori’s counter to pick a date and time that works for you. There will be 2 AFLAC reps here from 8 am through 3:30 pm both days. Please sign up as soon as possible to ensure you get a time convenient for you. I have attached a flyer for your information. Please let me know if you have any questions.
