We hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
As we get ready for the new school year, please be aware that the JVES grade level school supply lists are available at several different stores as well as in the school office.
Teachers will be receiving class lists soon, so students should receive a letter from their new teacher sometime during the week of August 11. Please know that not all students will receive letters on the same day, but if you have not received one by Friday, August 15, you may call the school and find out who the teacher is over the phone.
Our annual Meet the Teacher event will be on Tuesday, August 19, from 3:30-5:30 pm. This is a drop in type event designed so that parents who work until 5:00 can hopefully still have a chance to bring their student to meet his/her new teacher. We request that you not come before 3:30 because teachers need all day on both Monday and Tuesday to get their classrooms ready for the first day with students. If you come early, we will ask you to wait in the lobby until 3:30. Thank you in advance for your courtesy in this matter!
The first official school day for students in grades 1-5 is Wednesday, August 20, and it is a 12:00 dismissal. Kindergarten teachers are now in the process of scheduling home visits and they will explain when each individual kindergarten student needs to begin school during the home visit discussion.
We are very excited about a new school year and as always if you have questions or concerns, please call the school office at 926-3207.
