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 commend the students and faculty for their efforts during PARCC testing. I would like to thank all of the parents and family members who helped set up or participated in any of the activities during April. Our students enjoy themselves that much more because of your involvement. Great job by our first graders and teachers for another successful Arbor Day celebration and adding some beautiful trees to our school grounds.

I would especially like to thank the members of the PTA who provided an assortment of goodies and food for the staff during staff appreciation week. Your caring and generosity are greatly appreciated!

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

May 4th – PTA meeting 7pm

May 6th – Grade 3 Poetry Café

May 12th – Grade 1 to Cape May Zoo
