School News 2/11//2019


Due to snow closures in our district there have been changes to our junior and senior high school athletics events.  We are moving our Oral Interpretation Festival back to its original date of Tuesday, February 12th.  This change allows parents of both elementary and secondary students to attend both events.  Thank you for your understanding.  If this change causes issues with your child attending the program, please notify Mrs. Ballard at  

Be Prepared for the Weather - Students will have recess outside as long as the temperature is 20 degrees (taking into consideration the wind chill). Please have them come to school prepared with appropriate outer wear (winter coat, gloves, hat, boots).

Reminder - Students may arrive as early as 7:45 a.m. and will go directly to their classroom. Teachers begin teaching at 8:00 a.m.

Currently Enrolled Students - Students currently attending JA will automatically roll into their next grade level. If you did not go on EnrollJeffco and confirm that your child is returning, please contact the office and let us know if they are returning or possibly changing schools. 

Student Health -
This time of year, we generally have many sick students, and this year is no exception. When your child states that they are not feeling well, please take the time to assess their situation before they come to school. Many times we are contacting families first thing in the morning to come back and pick up their child. Giving your child cold medication or Tylenol in the morning will only mask their symptoms and then the medication wears off. Any child with a temperature of 100 degrees or above should be kept home until they are fever free for 24 hours.  

Community Social – Tokyo Joe’s on Wednesday, February 20th at 8770 Wadsworth Blvd. from 4:00-8:30 p.m. Just mention JA and 25% of the sales will be donated to the school. No flyer needed. Thanks for your support!

Fundraising for Non-School Activities – This is a reminder that students should take care of non-school fundraising on their own time and not on campus.

Intramural Soccer (5th & 6th grade students) – This after school program will begin on Thursday, February 28th and end on May 2nd. There are still openings if your child is interested. The registration form is on our website or you may pick up one in the office.
