Congratulations to ten of our exceptional fifth graders who were selected by the fifth grade team to represent John C. Myers Elementary at Broadway High School’s Young Leaders Conference in April. These students were chosen for exhibiting outstanding leadership potential. It was an honor for these individuals to be selected, and they were treated accordingly at the conference. Our students had the privilege of listening to several guest speakers, and participating in numerous team-building activities throughout the day. John C. Myers would like to thank the Broadway ACES Student Leadership Club and many BHS faculty for providing this wonderful experience for our students.

From Mrs. May

1. If you or your daughter or son plan to cut your hair for the upcoming haircutting assembly on June 6 at 9 a.m., please fill out the form and send in to me asap. I am still lining up volunteer hairdressers to cut hair for us. If you plan to bring your own hairdresser, please note that on the form.

2. Big Brothers Big Sisters seeks to match positive adult role models with students at our school. If you have an interest in becoming a Big Brother or a Big Sister, please let me know. We would love to have you at JCMES.

3. We continue to have top attendance with Rockingham County Public Schools. Thank you so much for your constant efforts to call the school and to send in notes letting us know when your child must miss due to illness or other scheduled appointments.

Notes from the Library

It's so hard to believe that the end of the year is upon us! There are many students with overdue books from the library. If your child has an overdue book, we would appreciate your help in getting it returned to the library. If you aren't sure which books are still out, please contact Mrs. Simmers at asimmers@rockingham.k12.va.us

The Village Library in Broadway has a great summer reading program-- we are planning to have Barbara Andes, head librarian, come visit and talk with the kids about this great program.

Have a wonderful summer!
