JDE Weekly Parent Update 



Good evening,

I want to wish our track 1 students and families a safe and relaxing track out on Monday. I also want to welcome back our track 2 friends.  We look forward to seeing them on Tuesday, December 6. 

Please come out and join us tonight at the Jammie Jam. Have a great weekend!


Updates for this Week:

  • Reminder- Upcoming Early Release Days--The next early release date will be Monday, December 5. Students will dismiss at 1:45 pm. 
    • Students will also have an early release day on Wednesday, December 21. 
  • Reminder-Angel Tree-- This is just a friendly reminder to please drop off Angel Tree gifts on or before December 5 so we can make sure families receive their gifts for the holidays. Each gift should be wrapped and labeled so we know what you've purchased (ex. A1, A2, etc.)
  • Candy Cane Grams--Please read the flyer below to find out more information about how to send some holiday cheer to a teacher or a friend.
  • Yearbook Snap--

    Yearbook Snap is a new opportunity for Jones Dairy students & family to submit photos to possibly be used in the 22-23 JDE yearbook. Yearbook Snap can be accessed in the link below or in the QR code.

  • Kidz Art Session 2--KidzArt drawing lessons begin on Nov 30 (Dec 7 for Track 2 students). Classes meet on Wednesdays in the Art Room (4-5 pm) and open to K-5th grades. Students participate when track in. Each week, your child will bring home a finished artwork that he/she will be proud!


With pride,

Altonia Bransome, Principal
