Today, around 98 students and their parents walked to school either from their homes or from Oakdale Park in Bridgewater. It was great to see so many students and parents getting exercise before school! We will plan to do another walk to school day before the end of school, so be watching for that date. A special thank you goes to Jill Lassiter for helping to organize the event.
Next week, John Wayland will celebrate Earth Day with a day full of activities on April 28. Students will be able to have fun while helping the planet!
Nurse Barb wanted me to remind parents of the Tdap injections, which will be available at school on May 1. Parents will need to send in the consent form for their student to have the Tdap injection on that day.
Many have noticed that the renovation at John Wayland has begun. There will be an informational meeting with Steve Reid, Director of RCPS Maintenance, in the library on May 18, beginning at 6:30 PM. Please plan to attend and bring all of your questions!
As a result of the renovation, the afternoon pick-up location is changing starting Monday, April 24. When parents enter the school to pick up their students at the end of the day, they will sign out their students outside of the cafeteria and then enter the cafeteria, where students will be seated at the tables according to grade level. Parents and students may then exit out the back cafeteria door. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we strive to continue to keep students safe during dismissal while we renovate!
The TAHS DI team will be going to Globals in May and asked that I pass along information about two fundraisers they are doing to raise money in order to attend.
