Good Afternoon Jonathan Valley Families,
I hope everyone is enjoying Summer with family and friends.
This message has information about the beginning of the 22-23 school year, after school care, student and teacher assignments, Jumpstart, Meet the Teacher, school supply lists, and days the JVE office will be closed this week.
We are looking forward to seeing all of our Jonathan Valley Panthers on Monday, August 22, the first day of school. The first day of school for 1st – 5th graders will be a 12:30 dismissal. You can find the 22-23 HCS calendar on the HCS website under the Calendars tab, and the calendar has also been sent to the email you have registered for these updates as well as your Remind account.
After school care will begin on August 24th. Paperwork will be sent home with students the first day of school.
Teachers will be mailing letters or postcards to their students in 1st – 5th grade in the coming weeks. All letters will be mailed by August 1st. Give us a call if you don’t receive anything in the mail by August 8th.
Rising Kindergarten students that have already registered at JVE should check for important dates and times in the packet you were given at Kindergarten registration. Kindergarten teachers will also be sending out a letter soon with important information and reminders about Kindergarten.
Some teachers will be contacting their students a little sooner for Jumpstart. Jumpstart will be held August 1-12. Participating teachers will contact their students with the schedule for these dates. Students invited to attend may be involved in many different activities from: transition activities for a new grade, teacher, and classroom, formative assessments in guided reading and math, mini-lessons to review previous grade level material or be introduced to new grade level material. Transportation and meals are not provided. If your child’s teacher signed up to participate in Jumpstart they will be in touch with you soon.
“Meet the Teacher” at the beginning of the 22-23 school year will be scheduled by each classroom teacher. Each teacher will be offering several days / times for you and your child to come to Jonathan Valley and meet with them in small groups to get to know them and so they can get to know your child. More information will be in the mail you receive from your child’s teacher in the coming weeks.
School supply letters are posted on our JVE website. This link will take you to the school supply lists.
We also have paper copies available in our office, and copies were also sent home at the end of the school year with report cards.
We will be out of the office for several days this week. The JVE Office will be closed July 25 – July 27.
Enjoy the rest of your afternoon, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
