JBD Friday FOCUS

February 5, 2016

The Third Quarter Off and Running!

Parents, Guardians, and Friends,


Report cards will be coming home Monday and we are so proud of the progress and growth that is evident with every child! If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher via email, phone, or request a conference. It is our hope and desire to continue to be partners in your child's education and together we can help them thrive and become prepared for their next steps.


We are excited about the BOOK FAIR this week and continued promotion of literacy. Reading month was a blast and we hope that the children enjoyed all of the special days and activities!
