Good Afternoon Jonathan Valley Families,
This message has information about the White Christmas canned food drive, 18 week assessments for grades 3-5, a change to the after school childcare schedule, the Christmas Luncheon for our students, and holiday spirit days.
Thank you to everyone that has participated in the White Christmas canned food drive. December 12th is the last day to bring in donations.
On Tuesday, December 6th, 3rd – 5th grade students will take the Reading 18 week assessment, December 8th 4th and 5th grade students will take the Math 18 week assessment, and on December 9th, 3rd grade students will take the Math 18 week assessment and 5th grade students will take the Science 18 week assessment. Teachers will use these assessments to monitor grade level standards, and to plan for the second semester of school. It is important that all students be here to take these assessments next week so we don’t have make-up tests lingering all the way up until Christmas break. Please see the letter that was recently sent home, through email, and through Remind for more information.
There will be no after school childcare on Thursday, December 8th. The after school staff will be completing required training.
The Christmas luncheon for our students will be Wednesday, December 21st. This has been a tradition at JVE for many years. We respectfully request that families do not attend this luncheon. Special decorations, music, and a delicious meal will be served to our students by our PTA. Please see the letter that was sent home, through email, and Remind for more details.
Our “Holiday Spirit Days” will return December 8th through December 23rd. Students are invited to dress up on these days. Each day has a different theme. Details were sent home, and through email and Remind.
Enjoy the rest of your evening, and give us a call if you have any questions.
