Dear Families,

Once again, the Winter Performance was amazing! The students did a great job singing the songs and fully participating. It was an incredibly cold night, which made leaving warm homes to come to school an extra challenge. Thank you for supporting your student(s) hard work and bringing them to participate.

A huge thank you to Hilary Rivers, JFK’s music teacher. Each year Hilary coordinates the whole school Winter Concert. She picks songs, choreographs them, works with classes to master the songs, puts together the rehearsals, and manages to get the details for the show all done. From the rehearsals to the staging to the final performance, she is a dedicated individual that helps our students to shine during this big event.

Also a huge thank you to the teachers and staff at JFK. Having students ready to perform takes a huge effort from all of the students and all of the adults. Our staff at JFK practice the songs with the students in classrooms, at recess, at lunch, walking down the halls – wherever they can! Everyone works together towards the common goal of an amazing concert by supporting each other and the students.

On Saturday, December 17th 9am until noon, the PTO is hosting a pancake breakfast and gift wrapping. It is $5 per person or $20 max per family for the breakfast. All the proceeds go to the WSD PTO, which helps to support all of our students.  This event will take place in the cafeteria here at the school.  

Please come and check the Lost and Found before December Vacation. All items not claimed by December 22nd will be donated.  There is a lost and found box in front of the Health Office.

The cold weather is here! It is very important that our students get time outside whenever possible. If the temperature is at or below ten degrees with the windchill, students will be inside at recess. Please check the weather each day and send your student dressed appropriately for the weather.

Have a great weekend.
