A few items of information:
1. Next Thursday, February 18th, we will hold a meeting of the "PAC" (Parent Advisory Committee) in the school library at 6:30 p.m. We have some parents that are "regulars" at these meetings, but we always want more people to get involved! PAC meetings are open to ALL parents. Child care for school-age children will be provided in the computer lab. At this meeting, Mr. Zach Dishman, our new JWES Art Teacher, will share about our art program. Did you know that all students have art this year on a weekly basis? (Thanks to the RCPS School Board for making this a priority in last year's budget!) Come to the PAC meeting and get to know Mr. Dishman and hear about what your child is learning as an artist! There is always at these meetings to interact with the principal about other questions and topics as well.
2. Calendar Notes:
