I cannot believe we are halfway through the month of October! This first nine weeks is flying and lots of great things are happening at JWES! This past week, first grade went to Back Home on the Farm, and third grade students experienced agriculture day at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds. We also had a very successful and fun Chick-fil-A Night on Wednesday! Students saw the baby Chick-fil-A cow during dismissal and got to greet a different Chick-fil-A cow that evening at the restaurant, in addition to eating some great food and playing a game for some cool prizes! Our next Chick-fil-A Night is February 8, so mark your calendars. We are even going to add a third night in May since many expressed that they really enjoyed the evening!
We also came to school dressed differently this week in order to celebrate National School Lunch week. We enjoyed showing our team spirit and being a superhero for the day! We appreciate all that the ladies in the cafeteria do to provide us with a nourishing lunch each day!
Next week, fourth grade students will go on their rescheduled field trip to Brethren Woods on Monday. Also, third grade students will be receiving dictionaries from the Rotary Club on Thursday. Fifth grade students will enjoy a visit to MTC on Thursday to learn what classes are offered for them when they get to high school.
We will celebrate UNITY DAY on Wednesday by wearing orange as we encourage kind behavior.
A reminder that the PAC meeting has been moved to October 27, at 6:30. Steve Reid, RCPS Director of Maintenance, will be at JWES to talk about the renovations. Please plan to attend!
Also, parents, if your student has lost a jacket, please have him or her check in our lost and found across from the back gym. We have lots of coats and jackets that have been collected from the playground!
Have a warm and terrific weekend!
