We are looking forward to our 60th Anniversary Open House! To make it fun for the students, each grade level has been assigned a decade. Children can wear costumes and outfits that are indicative of those times! Of course, dressing up is optional.

The assignments are as follows:


First Grade-60's

Second Grade-70's

Third Grade-80's

Fourth Grade-90's

Fifth Grade-2000's!

This OPEN HOUSE is for JBD Alumni over 21 years of age. We look forward to the big day! Many thanks to Erika Workman and her committee for taking the lead on organizing this event!

Dear John B. Dey Families,

It is the start of a new school year at John B. Dey Elementary and this year’s theme is “Structuring the Future Through Innovation.” Please help us fundraise for JBD technology by supporting the Seagull Circle Fund. This is a direct donation to the PTA and has maximum impact!

The John B. Dey PTA, like any charitable organization, depends on fundraising to provide meaningful learning experiences, gifts of technology, assemblies and other enriching student opportunities through out the school year. Our Seagull Circle Fund was a huge success in the 2015-16 school year and it allowed us to provide 55 Google chrome books and 2 carts and many other wonderful benefits to the students and teachers of JBD. The Seagull Circle fund replaces the standard fundraisers like wrapping paper, candy, candle and coupon book sales. So, let’s try to do it again! We need every family to participate!

Join the Seagull Circle! Sponsorships begin at $25 and your family’s name (or business) will be on the banner in the foyer of the school recognizing your sponsorship. That’s it! Help make John B. Dey the best elementary school at the beach!

A sponsorship form is attached and extra copies are available in the school foyer turnstile. Please return your form by October 21, 2016. More information is available at

Thank you in advance for your support of the John B. Dey Elementary PTA!


Jennifer Graham

JBD PTA President, 2016 - 2017
