Dear Families,

This week was a short week, but that did not stop our students and staff from learning all four days!

This morning was our All School Morning Meeting. Once a month, we get the entire school together in the cafeteria to do our morning meeting. This month’s morning meeting was run by the 5th grade team. We did the Pinky Greeting. The share was telling your partner what you are looking forward to in 2017. As an activity, we all did the Cha Cha Slide together. Ask your student(s) to show you how to do the dance!

Tomorrow marks the beginning of vacation. The school is closed for 11 days. Students return to school on Tuesday, January 3rd at 8am. During the vacation, take some time to read with your student(s), play boardgames or cardgames, and get them outside to play if it is warm enough! “Storytime with Elsie” is every Friday at 10:30am at the Winooski Memorial Library at the O’Brien Center. Meals are served Monday-Thursday 6-9pm at the Winooski Memorial Library at the O’Brien Center and are available to all children 18 or under.

Have a wonderful vacation, and a happy New Year. 2017 is going to be a great year at JFK Elementary!
