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 13th – spring ahead one hour), St. Patrick’s Day (Thursday, March 17th) and Poison Prevention Week (March 20 – 26).
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 February 28th). 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.
Just a reminder, if you are interested in purchasing any school pictures, please complete your order and return it no later than Monday, March 7th. Pictures not being purchased must be returned by Monday, March 7th as well. I must account for all photographs. Let me know if you have any questions on ordering pictures.
Any family that has not registered for our 2022-23 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 18th for a staff in-service training day. We will have two training topics from Living the Empowered Life LLC.
Our next three staff meetings will be on the following Mondays: March 14th, April 11th, and May 16th. We will be closing at 5:00PM for the meetings.
Our next two holidays will be Good Friday, April 15th and Memorial Day, May 30th. JCDS will be closed on both of these days.
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.
