Jag Care (before/after school program) – If you are interested in placing your children in this program for the next school year, you must participate in the lottery. Students that are currently enrolled are not guaranteed a position.  Families needing four or five days of care, before school, after school or both, will be given priority. Per state regulations, we are limited to 50 students and we need to maximize our program. The form will be available on our website on April 9. Completed forms must be submitted by Thursday, April 26 at the end of our business day.  Families will be contacted the week of May 1. 

Family Math Night – Thursday, April 26th from 6:00-7:30 p.m., for students currently in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Parents will visit the classroom(s) of the upcoming grade level of their students and get a taste of what math will look like next year. A teacher at each grade level will walk parents through an average day of math instruction and offer strategies and resources to assist their students with math homework assignments. There will also be time for parents to ask math curriculum related questions. In a separate setting, students will have the opportunity to participate in math activities and games related to their upcoming year’s curriculum.
