The Valentine's Day Food Drive which benefits the Crisis Ministry runs now through Thursday, February 16. All JP pupils should have brought home a brown-paper bag for the Crisis Ministry’s Eight Annual Valentine’s for Food Drive. We’ve stapled to each bag a pink sheet with instructions about what heart-healthy foods you may donate. Parents or pupils can return the bags to our main lobby vestibule.
For more information:
Many JP families presented holiday gifts to the seniors at Elm Court, the nearby assisted-living residence. Recently, we received this letter:
We agree with Ms. Reiter’s sentiments, and we extend additional salutes to our first graders and their teachers who delivered the gifts and to music teacher Dee Mann who led our pupils in offering several seasonal songs.
Please sort through your closets and drawers for outgrown or haven’t-worn-in-years clothing and help clothe neighbors in our community. We seek all types of adults’, teens’, and children’s clothing and footwear for any season. From now ,
Clothing distribution will take place on Saturday morning, January 21st, in the JW cafeteria, from 7:30 to 10. All are welcome.
Congratulations to all participants in our Fifth-Annual Turkey Trot. Thank you to:
our physical-education teacher, Mr. Hennessy, who, with parent Jeanne Tria, organized the event.
world-language teacher, Srta Morales, who served as Trot Mascot. Classes who correctly identified Srta Morales in her turkey disguise were those of Ms. Albany, Ms. Bender, Ms. Bustillo, and Ms. Miller.
Turkey Trot Spirit Award Winners:
We’ll hold our fifth-annual Turkey Trot on Thu., Nov. 17th, at 1:15 p.m. It’s the culmination of a schoolwide community-service project and lots of fun.
Please send in donations of non-perishable food items (no glass containers, please) for your child’s classroom collection. Each class must collect 25 items to participate.
If you’re able to help out—no special skills or experience required—please call P.E. teacher Steve Hennessy at 806-4240 or parent Jeanne Tria at 921-8331. Thanks.
Halloween is just around the corner. If you have gently used, but clean, costumes that your children can no longer use, please donate them (the costumes, not the children) to our costume drive. (We’ll also gratefully accept new costumes for children of all ages, PK-size through size 14.) We’ve placed a container in our lobby for costumes. We’ll collect donations through Wed., Oct. 26th. Then, we’ll distribute costumes to JP pupils who need a costume and we’ll send the rest to HomeFront in Trenton. Thanks for your support
