Thank you to all students and parents who participated in the #JJStrong blood drive and swab-a-thon. A total of 53 pints of blood and more than 80 swabs were collected!
Have a wonderful spring break! I hope you have an opportunity to rest, relax, and perhaps read a good book. When we return, we’ll have just eight short weeks left in our 2016-17 school year. I know we’ll finish strong!
Have a great weekend!
Please make note of the dates below for the AIR standardized tests. If at all possible, please try to avoid scheduling appointments for your child on these particular dates.
