FRIDAY FOCUS

John B. Dey Elementary School

Weekly UPDATE-Dec 18-23, 2015

Dear Parents, Guardians, Friends, and Staff of John B. Dey Students,


The holiday time is here! This is the second and final Friday Focus for the year 2015. Very often I am asked what I am wishing for during this holiday season. I could launch into a very emotional and heartfelt story about world peace, no more hunger, and blessings for all our children. These are things I definitely do want, but less sentimental, but a more pertinent wish I have has to do with safety of our staff and students. We need less people driving their children and more on the bus. Please consider this option! If you do choose to drive, please have your child seated on the right side of the passenger side and ready to go. Parents are NOT to get out of the car! Your cooperation is appreciated.

Thank you and have a wonderful holiday! Cozy up with each other, read books, and have wonderful family time! We look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Monday Jan. 4th!


Sincerely,

Beth Bianchi,

Principal
