2. We are thrilled to be welcoming Canine therapists along with therapy dogs to the school in the new year!  Mrs. Onore  has been working hard to bring the dogs to JK, and we will be beginning the series of visits first, with students in grade 5.  Grade 5 parents, please expect to see permission slips coming home soon!

3. This coming Monday night we will be having our very first JK Tree Lighting ceremony in the new JK Courtyard!  Students in grades 4 and 5, and their families are invited for an evening of holiday fun, and surprises, culminating in a tree, Menorah, and Kwanzaa candle lighting ceremony!  Grade 4 and 5 parents, please be sure to fill out the previously shared Google RSVP form if planning to attend!  A big THANK YOU to Mrs. Papa and Ms. Macaro for all their efforts in bringing our upper elementary students this wonderful event! 

4. This past week, we celebrated the academic and school citizenship accomplishments of our JK students in our grade 4 and 5 Honor Roll Assemblies, and our grade 6-8 Honor Roll Breakfasts! It's hard to believe the 1st quarter of study is complete!  As we move forward, and into a new calendar year, goal setting, planning, and execution remain our focus as we strive to be better, even if only a little, then the day before!

We hope everyone has a wonderful winter weekend! Be sure to put your children to work on all the necessary holiday chores around the house this weekend!  We all know there is plenty to do, and adding responsibility to your children's weekends never hurts, and only stands to build a sense of pride inside them as they can be proud of their contributions to the home!  Recently my youngest son has been given the task of using the vacuum hose to scoop up any mess in the kitchen after dinner.  Once he is done sticking his fingers in, he cleans the entire kitchen floor, and now looks forward to his responsibility after dinner!  It's actually really cute, and helpful!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Be well,
Mr. Veit
