Dear Parents and Guardians,
Good afternoon! We hope you all had a productive and growth filled week full of accomplishments and joy! We recently completed our winter MAP assessments, and have celebrated the academic accomplishments of many of our students that have worked diligently to be taken out of RTI instruction, and added to the elective courses of their choice! Great job to all!
Below are some notes from the week:
1. Report cards will be available for viewing in Genesis this coming Thursday, February 2nd.
2. Please remind your children as to the importance of wearing their student ID badges. This assists with those students coming in for early am assistance as well as in the lunchroom. 
3. Ms. Coester is hard at work organizing our upcoming Joyce Kilmer Spelling Bee! The event will take place during the school day on February 13th! Good luck to all the students participating!
4. Next week the JK theatre department presents SEUSSICAL!  The show will run Thursday, and Friday nights, with a matinee on Saturday! Mrs. Russolinio and the students have worked diligently to put on an amazing production! Break a leg!
5. March Madness will take place on March 3rd.  February is a quick month, so, if you are an adult community member that is planning to participate, start stretching out for this game now!
6. Please check out the JK HOMEROOM application where all of the above, and more are highlighted! 
7. Please be sure to be patient and considerate of one another during drop off and pick up each day. It is a stressful time of day, and depending on what each of us have happening, it can be better, or worse. It is important to remember that our children view and take in how we respond to stress, and that becomes their template for how to respond when stressful events happen to them.  Let's show them compassion and patience while dropping off and picking up, even if we need to be somewhere, and someone else is taking a long time, or is stopped where they shouldn't be.  Safety is paramount at this time of day, and it is important to always keep that in mind.
We hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your families and friends. The weather is supposed to be on the warmer end of 50 degrees, so get outside, take advantage, and enjoy!
Be well,
Mr. Veit
