Good Afternoon Jonathan Valley Families,
This message has information about the Reading for Education fundraiser, the CogAT assessment for 3rd graders, after school schedule changes, make-up pictures, Thanksgiving lunch, and Thanksgiving Break.
Thank you to all of the families who have already participated in our Reading for Education fundraiser. So far, we’ve had 110 families sign up. If your family has not participated, there’s still time, and it only takes about 5 minutes to sign up. Most families last year purchased electronic gift cards for teachers to choose reading materials such as books and magazines for their classrooms. The gift cards are delivered through Reading for Education, so all you have to do is choose the teacher and the amount of the gift card.
This safe and easy fundraiser is 100% online so there is no face-to-face selling, collecting money, or delivering products. Your child will receive a Safari Hugger prize just for signing up.
Go to https://www.rfe.net/sid.t?0000024935 to show our JVE teachers your support.
The CogAT (Cognitive Abilities Assessment) for 3rd grade students will be November 15 and 16. A letter explaining this in more detail was sent home with 3rd graders, through Remind, and to the email address you have connected to your MyConnect HCS Subscriber Portal.
There will be no after school childcare on Thursday, November 17 and Thursday, December 8. Our after school employees will be completing required training from the NC DHHS: Division of Child Development and Early Education.
Make-up pictures will be Monday, November 21.
We will have our annual, tradition, of Thanksgiving Lunch this year on Tuesday, November 22nd. We hope you will plan to join us.
Thanksgiving Break will be November 23-25.
Give us a call if you have any questions, and enjoy the rest of your evening.
