Can everybody say “I Love Spring Break”?? Wow…what a long winter it has been with so little snow or actual winter weather. I think we are all ready for spring weather and definitely spring break. When we come back from the break, crunch time is upon us. We will have 8 weeks of school left and a lot to get done in that time. Classroom teachers will be cracking down hard on those last reading, math, and science concepts so the students will be prepared for the next grade. Of course we have a wide variety of assessments in those last weeks, too, and we want all of the students to be able to give us their very best. We want to show the world just how bright and awesome our JVES students are! Please make every effort to have your child at school, on time, every day as we head into the home stretch. That will keep them in a good school routine and rhythm and we will click like a “well-oiled machine” right on up until the last student day on June 8. As always, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child’s life.
