During School Day: 9:30 - 11:30 and 12:30 - 2:30
Evening Registration: 5:30pm - 7:30pm

JTDS Family,

I’m sure that everyone is glad that February is over and hopefully the snow and cold! Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, we still managed to have some very successful events. The Sweetheart Lunch was a big success. We had a great turnout and everyone really seemed to enjoy that special time with their loved ones. I would like to thank all of the parents who helped with the planning, preparation, and baking. Without all of your efforts, the luncheon would not have been possible. I would also like to thank everyone who donated to the Sweet Caroline lollipop fundraiser. Your generosity is greatly appreciated! Also, I would like to thank Mrs. Verderosa for coordinating the Science Fair. What an event! The participation was incredible (over 50 projects turned in) and the activities were awesome. It was wonderful watching families interact and spend time together while they learned about different aspects of Science. Thank you to the teachers, students, and parents who helped make the event so successful. Last but not least, our Book Fair was again a huge success! Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered to help out during the week. It’s so gratifying seeing the students get so excited over books and reading.

We have several important events taking place in March. PARCC assessments will take place beginning on the 2nd and running until the 13th (weather permitting). The 16th will be a half day for the students. Read Across America Day will be held on the 30th and Kindergarten registration will be on the 31st.

As always, thank you for your support and commitment in your children’s education.



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
