We are so excited that the FALL FESTIVAL day is finally here! It's going to be beautiful, so we hope to see everyone tomorrow at JBD!

It's crazy that we are half-way through the first quarter! Parents, please feel free to communicate with your child's teachers. If you have any questions or concerns about anything, please ask. Conferences are coming up and you are encouraged to attend. Together we can help your children soar! It takes a team and we are all on TEAM JBD KIDS.

Have a wonderful Fall weekend!
