JTDS Family,

I can’t believe I’m saying this but April is finally here and hopefully some warm weather as well. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the students and teachers for their efforts and flexibility during the PARCC testing. The students did a wonderful job of taking on this new and unknown challenge for the first time. We are very proud of them!

Spring break is just around the corner and April is turning out to be a very busy month. Here are a few date reminders for some upcoming events and activities in April.

April 1st – PTA meeting

2nd – Autism Awareness – Wear Blue shirt day

3rd – Early dismissal (Spring Recess 4/6-4/10) School re-opens on the 13th.

18th  – “Fight Like a Girl for Mrs. Burton” event at BHS.

20th – After-school activities come to an end/Early dismissal for students.

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
