Our lost & found container is overflowing! We will have items placed strategically along the hallway before the break so you and your students may peruse for coats, gloves, hats, etc. Items not claimed will be donated. Please make sure to put names inside jackets, coats, etc.

STEM Career Video Volunteers

Is anyone interested in volunteering to film short videos? We have a few people who have offered to share about their stem careers, and we need someone with experience that could film them.

JAE Angel Tree

We still have needs for the JAE Angel Tree. There are a few families, within the Jack Anderson Family, who need some help around this time of year.. The link below provides a list of items you can sign-up to bring to school no later than December 15th. Please address your item with the Family number, along with the Child's age/grade, to Mrs. Beasley, our Guidance Counselor. We also have unlimited slots for Kroger gift cards that we hope to use throughout the year for our Charitable Fund. This is a great way to get Fuel Points and support JAE with your Kroger card! www.SignUpGenius.com/go/508044FAAA82DA31-copy

Carnival Info!!!!!

For those new to our school, Carnival is a two-part fundraiser. We have a fun live auction event for adults only on Friday night and then Saturday during the day we have games in each classroom for the kids to play, concessions available and more auction items available. Anyone is welcome to come and enjoy. The kids love winning the prizes and playing the games! This is our number one fundraising event and it cannot be successful without your support! There are many ways you can help make this event the best one yet!

1. Scavenger Hunt.

There is a list of donation items that have points assigned to them. Every class who gets enough points for the Scavenger Hunt will get to take part in the super cool Disco Glow Dance Party!! AND…. the class who brings in the most value in donations will win a custom STEM experience! AND……. the Video Game Truck Party was such a success for Tech Trek and the kids loved it so much, that we are bringing it back for Carnival. The top student in each class with the most value in donations wins a spot in the Video Game Truck Party!! Your Room Mom will be in touch with all of the Scavenger Hunt details so stay tuned!

2. Collecting Donations.

It is never too early to start asking/collecting donations for our Carnival event. Go to the PTO Section of the JAE App to find the donations letter for donors that you can carry with you while out shopping over the holidays. This is our largest fundraiser and we can't be successful without your help! Every little bit helps! No donation is too small! There will be more information to come about this event, but we wanted to get you all thinking about it before break and maybe while you are out doing some shopping you can get some donations too!

3. Save the Date.

Our Carnival Kick-Off lunch is set for January 11th at 10am in the art room. Save the date to join us for some food and fun as we kick-off preparations for this event!!

As always, thank you so much for all your support and willingness to help! We appreciate all of you so much!
