Happy Friday at Jewett!

It has been another great week here at Jewett!  The students are excited about the upcoming three day weekend for sure.  Some of the classes have been celebrating the Fall season in a delicious way!  Mrs. Labrie's first grade class made Homemade Apple Sauce last week.  I got to sample the final product and let me tell you it was awesome!!  Several classes are doing leaf rubbings and using these rubbings to do some very creative writing pieces.  Keep up the great work to all the staff and students!
We will start Popcorn and Ice Cream sales the week of October 16th.  A flier will be going home next week explaining the procedures, costs, etc.  We are also going to have a Fun Friday event next Friday October 13th.  The students are asked to wear their Black and Orange on Friday.  Students can donate a dollar to the Fun Friday Fund.  All proceeds go back to the Jewett Activities fund.  Be sure to check out the Jewett PTG Facebook Page.  This is a great resource to learn about all the great things that are happening with our PTG.
We have two Literacy/Math Nights scheduled for October.  The Literacy/Math Night for students in PreK-2nd grade will be on Wednesday October 11th.  The Pre K Literacy/Math Night will be from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm.  The K-2 Literacy/Math Night will go from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  Literacy/Math Night for grades 3rd-5th will be on Monday October 16th going from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  There will be a chance for you to see activities that your students do in class that can also be done at home to help them learn Literacy/Math skills.  We will also be raffling off some great prizes!  All participants are automatically entered in the raffle.
Parent Conferences are scheduled for Thursday October 19th and Friday October 20th.  The students have a half day of school on Friday October 20th.  They will be dismissed at 11:15 am. 
One last reminder.  I know that parking continues to be a challenge.  I want to thank you for the smaller number of cars we have coming to drop off in the circle in the morning.  In order to park in the circle in the afternoon you will need to have a parking pass.  Please come to the office to get get the form to request a parking pass. For those folks that are walking to school or parking on the side streets and walking to the school, please be respectful of the homes that are on these streets. Please do not block driveways when you park or let children walk on lawns.  I appreciate your attention to this matter.
i hope you have an excellent long weekend.  There is no school on Monday October 9th.
