            The last day of school is Wednesday, June 1st! As we enter into the “home stretch” we ask that all parents encourage children to exercise their best behavior and keep up with their assignments. Classroom behavior and work completion will play a large factor in students’ eligibility to participate in special end-of-the-year events. Thank you!



            Please strive to get your students’ bus fees, book fees, and library fees paid up. Some lunch accounts are also past due. Balances of all student accounts will carry over to the following school year. Balances of 4th grade students will carry over to their 5th grade accounts at middle school. All unpaid balances that carry over to the next school year will show as additional amounts owed during online registration.



            Registration for the 2022-2023 school year will be completed online. Parents, please make sure that your contact information is up-to-date in JMC. Communication regarding registration for next school year will be shared via tex and/or email as soon as online registration opens.



            If your child has prescription or over-the-counter medication at school, it will be important to stop in and pick it up before or at the completion of the school year. Leftover medication cannot be sent home with students for the safety of them and others. If the medications are not picked up, they are automatically discarded. If you have questions regarding our medication policy, feel free to contact the school nurse.



            Good luck to both of our school Sumdog math teams. They are entered in the Eastern Iowa Mississippi Bend Spring Sumdog math competition. There are 53 teams from various schools in Eastern Iowa participating.

The teams are coached by Sheryl Kennedy.



             This week talk about what: “Oh well, maybe next time” means. This theme builds off last week’s theme of appropriately accepting responses or situations that we do not like. “Oh well, maybe next time” is a helpful phrase to remind ourselves to stay positive when things don’t go as planned. We often use this when students express their disappointment for not getting called on to answer a question. It can also be used when in the store and your child begins to white about not getting the treat or toy they wanted. Remind them to use their positive self-talk and say “oh well, maybe next time”. https://childmind.org/article/how-to-help-kids-learn-to-fail/
