Happy Friday at Jewett!

As the weather starts to get nicer, please remember to reference the student dress code.  This is the time of year when we start to see some dress code violations.  All policies can be found online at the Manchester School District website.  I appreciate your attention to this matter.
The 4th grade students have completed their Science NECAP testing this week. I was so impressed with how hard they all worked.  We are really proud of their effort.  The 5th graders are preparing for their Colonial Day for Thursday June 1st.  Students will go back in time for the day and experience what school was like during the Colonial period.  It is a great day that the children will really enjoy! 
We are the in the middle of field trip season here at Jewett.  Here are a few general tips about field trips that may be helpful:
  • If you are sending your child with a bag lunch for the filed trip please make sure you do not have glass bottles.
  • If your child is participating in a field trip outside make sure they are sprayed with bug spray and sunscreen before coming to school.
  • Remind your child that the field trip is an extension of the classroom and good behavior is expected.
Some classes have already had field trips and I have received some excellent reports from teachers and chaperones about behavior.  I appreciate all the parents who have volunteered to chaperone, thank you for sharing your time with us!
On Wednesday May 24th we will have our Memorial Day Observance Ceremony here at Jewett starting at 9:30 am.  The ceremony will take place in the cafeteria. The students have Monday May 29th off for Memorial Day.  
The last day of school for Pre K here at Jewett will be Monday June 12th.  The last day of school for our students K-5 will be Wednesday June 14th.  It is a full day so dismissal will be at 2:50 pm as usual.  
I hope you have an excellent weekend!
