From the President
Dear JCDS Families,
I hope everyone had a wonderful summer! Our Parents’ Association (PA) committees are having fun planning our calendar of events for 2013-2014.
Whether you are an existing family or a family that is new to JCDS, now is a great time to get involved. The PA has volunteer opportunities available for everyone.
Here are a just a few of the ways you can get involved:
- Participate in our PEP program. PEP stands for Parents Encouraging Pupils and is our volunteer program that is recognized throughout the state and nationally among independent private schools. This program provides many opportunities for your direct involvement in your child's classroom, before and after school music programs, and even helping with the arts and sciences!
- You may also volunteer for various fundraising and social events that the PA sponsors throughout the year such as the Gala, the Book Fair, and the Fall Carnival. And, in May, we will honor our wonderful faculty and staff with our teacher/staff appreciation luncheon.
- We hope you will also plan to attend our family-oriented events during the year such as the Back to School BBQ and our Spring Picnic.
You can find out more about volunteering and sign up online at this link.
The PA is a great way to get involved, make friends, support the school, and to get to know your JCDS family a little better.
I welcome you to attend our first PA meeting on September 3 at 8:30 a.m. in conference room "B," which is located on the second floor of the Smith Center.
Here’s to an amazing 2013-2014 school year!
President, JCDS Parents' Association
