Jim Stone Announcements
JSE: Onsite K-2nd students will take the NWEA test Tuesday and Wednesday of next week (January 19th and 20th). Please make sure your child's Chromebook is charged.
JSE: PTO will be having its next Zoom meeting on January 29 at 1:30. The Zoom link will be sent out closer to meeting time. We would love to see you there!
From phones and tablets to streaming movies and YouTube, tech and media are everywhere. Kids love easy access to shows, games, and information. Parents and caregivers love that kids can learn on the go (and stay busy when dinner's cooking). But it's easy to overdo it when the phone never stops pinging and the next episode plays automatically. Families can keep media and tech use in check by following a few simple practices. Please see the attached tips to help you help your family balance media use.
JSE: Thank you JSE families for all your generous donations! Because of you the staff and teachers at JSE enjoyed 5 days of Christmas Cheer to end their last week of school. Each day they were surprised with something different to spread some holiday cheer. This included sonic drinks/prepackaged snacks, gift cards, hot chocolate bombs individually wrapped, signs by card my yard, and large tote bags. We are blessed with such amazing staff and teachers that have worked so hard during these uncertain times. Thank you for helping us spread the love. We are thankful for each of you.
CPSD will have our regular weekend boxes available for students to take home Thursday afternoon as we have done for the last few weeks: however, the district will not be distributing food boxes for the duration of the holiday break. Issues with our supply chain as well as USDA restrictions make it impossible to do so at this time. Virtual student’s meal box distribution will resume on January 4th. As a reminder, the USDA has extended the waiver for all students to eat free meals through the end of the 2020-2021 school year, regardless of eligibility.
