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 14th – spring ahead one hour), St. Patrick’s Day (Wednesday, March 17th), and Poison Prevention Week (March 21 – 27).
To honor the great Dr. Seuss for his birthday on March 2nd, JCDS will have a Dr. Seuss Week to celebrate reading (the week of March 1st). 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 2021-22 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.
JCDS will be closed on Friday, March 12th for a staff in-service training day. We will complete our trauma training from Lakeside Global Institute.
Our next three staff meetings will be on the following Mondays: March 29th, April 19th, and May 17th. We will be closing at 5:30 PM for the meetings.
Our annual Easter Egg Hunt for Saturday, March 27th has been canceled due to the continuing pandemic.
Our next two holidays will be Good Friday, April 2nd, and Memorial Day, May 31st. JCDS will be closed on both of these days.
Many parents have provided JCDS with their email addresses to receive our monthly newsletter as well as their child’s classroom newsletter. An 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. Here is a direct link to the Newsletter category.
An Irish Blessing for St. Patrick’s Day
Take time to work,
It is the price of success,
Take time to think,
It is the source of power.
Take time to play,
It is the secret of perpetual youth.
Take time to read,
It is the foundation of wisdom.
Take time to be friendly,
It is the road to happiness.
Take time to love and be loved,
It is the privilege of the gods.
Take time to share,
Life is too short to be selfish.
Take time to laugh,
Laughter is the music of the soul.
