We had a terrific and fun Earth Day Celebration today! Everyone met in the gym for an assembly with a Schoolhouse Rock video and message about recycling from Linda Zirkle from Rockingham County Extension. Then, students moved to different stations where they learned more about how they can help planet Earth. The weather was beautiful, and it was great to be outside.
There are several important dates coming up. Dominoes Night will be Wednesday, May 3. The PTA Board meeting will be Thursday, May 4, at 6:30 PM in the library. The Director of RCPS Maintenance, Steve Reid, will be at JWES on May 18, at 6:30 PM in the library to answer any questions parents may have about the renovation.
The last day of school will now be June 7, since we did not use all of our banked snow days. Also, as a result of the renovation that has now started, the 5th Grade Farewell will be moved to Monday, June 5, at 7:00 PM, so some work can be done in the main gym the rest of the week to prepare for the new HVAC system. The Awards Assembly for the end of the year will also be held on June 5, beginning at 10:00 AM
