Welcome Back

We are off to another exciting school year! This year is extra special since it is your child’s last year at JYJ and elementary school. I know that it may seem a little early to discuss middle school but I like to keep parents very much informed about the transition to middle school.

Throughout the year I will be sending out information regarding the next step (middle school). It is certainly NOT too early to begin thinking about middle school options. Last year we had students assigned to attend 23 different middle schools (there are lots of choices here)!

Here's a list of WCPSS magnet schools. If you are planning on continuing at a WCPSS magnet middle school, I highly encourage you to visit any school(s) that you are interested in. Below is the latest info I have on open house info, application info and application dates. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.

Baby Pictures Needed

Please send in a baby picture of your child to be included in the 5th grade slide show. Please email pictures to jyj5thpics@gmail.com or if you have a hard copy, I will scan and return the picture back to you (please write your child's name on the back of the picture).

If you have group pictures from school events throughout the years from class events, field trips, Spanish dancing, etc please send those in as well.

What are my middle school options?
