Weekly Update from Mr. Veit

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Good afternoon. I hope that my last Friday message of the school year finds you and yours happy, healthy, and well. For the last 15 months, my hope is that these weekly updates have provided you with information, clarity, and maybe even some motivation and encouragement. In this last message of the 2020-21 school year, I would like to again thank you all for your support, kindness, and above all else, your tireless effort when it has come to working with us, and your children. With things looking up, I think it is safe to say that we made it, and we did so together as a JK and Milltown family. There is much work to be done, but we are no stranger to that!

Below are some notes related to next week:

1. Monday is the final full day of the school year, and the last day of school lunches. Please be reminded that Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of next week are early dismissal days.

2. 8th grade promotion will take place on Tuesday, June 15th here at Joyce Kilmer. Congratulations in advance to our wonderful group of talented and fun 8th graders!

3. On June 16th and 17th we will have abbreviated field days for the students. The 8th grade will have their field day on the 16th and grades 4-7 will have their field day on the 17th. Please have your children dress accordingly, and be sure to bring in a cold bottle of water! Mr. Copperthwaite has created a fun and engaging experience for the students to partake in on those 2 days!

4. Parents/guardians of students in grades 5, 6 and 7 - please read the attached Electives letter for information on selecting your child's elective classes for the Fall. This is time-sensitive so please review.

5. In anticipation of the in person return of all students this September, we will be sharing information and resources over the summer related to the reacclimation of students feeling nervous or anxious about being back in school. Should your child be expressing concern about returning in September, please reach out to the main office to speak to myself, or Mrs. Citro as we can arrange for assistance in advance of the first day of school.

On behalf of the entire Joyce Kilmer staff, we would like to wish everyone a long and happy summer that is full of joy with your loved ones! We look forward to seeing you all again in September!

Be well,
Mr. Veit
