Happy May!!

Happy May!

We are in the home stretch of the school year and WOW is it busy!!

We are in the middle of Teacher Appreciation week!  If you forgot to send in money to support the PTO's efforts it is not too late.  Feel free to put cash or a check made payable to JA PTO in an envelope labeled "Teacher Appreciation Week" and send it to school with your child.  

Books & Beyond

The Books and Beyond deadline is tomorrow, May 3rd to be eligible to earn a Medal.  Medals will be distributed at our Books and beyond Ceremony on June 8th.
