Winooski School District

Fair, and 30 °F | Feb 26th: No School

Friday, May 19, 2017

Dear Families,

It has been another busy week at JFK. This week, students in grades 3rd-5th were finishing their SBAC testing, and 4th grade was finishing Science NECAP.  We are almost done with the mandated assessments!

Kirsten Kollgaard, our ELL and Curriculum director, welcomed her second son on Thursday. Kirsten was at work on Thursday, and Samuel arrived Thursday afternoon! Kirsten will be out for the rest of the school year and will be returning mid-August. Please contact the main JFK office is there is anything you need that Kirsten would normally help with.

I have updated the list of dates below of upcoming events at JFK. I will try to keep the list updated each week so that everyone can be on the same page.
