Our Mother Goose Theme for the month of March is “Pond Life”. The children will explore pond plants and insects, along with life in and around the pond. Other topics for the month are: Daylight Saving Time (Sunday, March 8th – spring ahead one hour), St. Patrick’s Day (Tuesday, March 17th) and Poison Prevention Week (March 15 – 21).
To honor the great Dr. Seuss for his birthday, JCDS will have a Dr. Seuss Week to celebrate reading. Each day, we will have a different theme related to one of his books and the children can dress for that specific day. Please see the attached schedule so your child(ren) can dress accordingly for each day.
Any family that has not registered for our 2020-21 school year should do so now to secure enrollment for this fall. Without the registration, we cannot guarantee a spot for your child(ren). We do have limited openings in some classes this fall. Remember that we offer a free week of tuition to you when you refer a family to the school and they register.
On Thursday, March 12th at 8:30 am, CLS Photo Group will be at the school to take individual and class pictures. Please mark your calendars so your child(ren) will look their best. For those children not attending school on Thursday, but want to have their picture taken, please see Larry Brown.
JCDS will be closed on Friday, March 13th for a staff in-service training day.
Our next three staff meetings will be on the following Mondays: March 9th, April 6th, and May 18th. We will be closing at 5:30PM for the meetings.
Our annual Easter Egg Hunt will be Saturday, April 4th at 10:00AM.
Our next two holidays will be Good Friday, April 19th and Memorial Day, May 25th. JCDS will be closed on both of these days.
Many parents have provided JCDS with their email address to receive our monthly newsletter as well as their child’s classroom newsletter. Email has also been a wonderful way to share some of the pictures of the children we have taken. If you have not provided your email address, you may be missing out on important information and pictures. In the event you have misplaced your JCDS monthly newsletter, you can find it on our website. Log into www.jeffersonvillecds.com, find the Parents link, then click Newsletters. Do not forget to check our Facebook page for pictures.
An Old Irish Blessing
May love and laughter light your day,
And warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
Wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world,
With joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
Bring the best to you and yours.
