Happy Friday at Jewett!

Winter just does not want to let go!  I hope that everyone stays safe during this most recent bout of snow.

Thanks to all the parents of our Pre K-2nd grade students who came to the Math Night here at Jewett this past Wednesday.  It was awesome watching all the parents playing the Math and computer games along with their children.  I hope that the packets we shared with you will give you the opportunity to play these games at home.  This is a great way to sharpen your child's Math skills.

I am very proud of our band and string students, they put on an amazing performance Thursday night.  Thanks to all the parents for coming out to support the students.  A big thank you to both Mr. Baberadt and Mr. Brien for working with the children to teach them how to play the instruments and read music.  I have a chance to peek in on the some of the practice sessions with the students and I am always so impressed with how hard they try to learn the music and play the instruments. Great work!

Our 3rd grade students did an excellent job this week participating in the Smarter Balanced Testing.  They all worked very hard and gave it their best effort!  Next week the 4th graders will start the testing.  I am expecting to see the same great effort from them.  

I want to thank all of you for being so patient as we work through these new parking rules on Jewett Street.  I have had several excellent questions from parents and I am working with the DOT and the MPD to try and get answers for you. Once I have more information and clarification about what we can and cannot do I will share with you.  On a similar note, the congestion on Jewett Street during drop off and pick up has been reduced, making this a much safer environment for the children.

I hope that everyone enjoys this weekend, hopefully the last snowy weekend for some time!  Here are some upcoming events at Jewett:

4/7- Tall and Small Dance: Student Council will hold their first fundraiser and sell carnations at the dance.
 
4/21- FUN FRIDAY- Hat Day

Thanks,

Pete
