JTDS Family,

I find myself saying the same thing each month but I can’t believe how fast time is going. I would like to thank all of the staff members, students, parents and family members who helped set up, donated items, or participated in any of the activities for the “Fight Like a Girl, Fight for Michelle” event and or the “Hope for Timmy” event. It was amazing to see so many people come together to help others who are in need. I would also like to thank the members of the PTA who provided an assortment of goodies and food for the staff during staff appreciation week and for organizing our weather assembly. Our staff and students enjoy themselves that much more because of your involvement. Your caring and generosity are greatly appreciated!

As we look forward to the month of May, and hopefully some warm weather, here are some important dates to remember.

May 5th/6th – 2nd grade COgat testing

May 6th – 6th Grade orientation at ROBMS

May 7th/8th  – Mother’s Day plant sale

May 12th – 2nd grade trip to Insectropolis

May 13th – School Store

May 18th - 22nd  – Book Fair

May 19th – 1st grade trip to Cape May Zoo

May 20th – Drama play 6:30pm

Josh Toddings, Principal




The JTDS and American Heart Association Hoops for Heart fundraising event on February 24, 2015 raised over $1,800.00 dollars. The second most in school history. A special thanks to Sean and Liam O’Neill for raising over a thousand dollars themselves. Fourth grade won the extra Physical Education class and Mrs. O’Sullivan’s class with Sean and Liam will also have an extra Physical Education class. Thanks to everyone who participated.

Mr. Wittenberg
