JFK Summer 2018 Newsletter
I hope that all of you are off to a great start to your summer! The weather has been warm, but I am glad that the hot weather held off until we were done with school. JFK has been a busy place this summer, we have hardly skipped a beat since school let out. Dennis LaRose, our head custodian and his staff have been busily cleaning up the classrooms and preparing for the student return in late August. BEPO has been continuing their efforts at beautifying our school, they have been doing some interior painting and some major landscaping projects in our courtyards. Thanks to their efforts, when students return to school, our building will be even more beautiful!! Mrs. Carty has held a very successful STEAM camp for two weeks here at our school, over 24 students attended each week and participated in various brain-building STEAM activities . (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) .
If you have not already done so, be sure to send me a photo of you reading this summer so I can include you in our “Where are you reading this summer?” bulletin board. Please email your photos to me firstname.lastname@example.org.
The District-Wide Town Meeting will take place on Wednesday August 8 at 7:00 at the BMR high school auditorium. This is a meeting concerning educational funding for the 2018-2019 school year. We would like as many people as possible to attend this meeting. After this meeting has taken place, we will have our financial picture in focus and we should be able to finalize our class placement and class lists, etc. We will make every attempt to inform students of their class placement after this meeting.
We will have our annual New Family Tour at JFK and AFM on Friday August 24 from 9-10:00 am. This is a chance for students who have not been to our school before to get acclimated to our building prior to the first day.
Our first day back for grade 1-5 students will be Wednesday, August 29. Kindergarten orientation will take place that day, and kindergarten classes will not begin until Thursday, August 30. More details on the kindergarten orientation will be forthcoming. Enjoy the rest of the summer!!
