Hello JBE Friends and Family -
The PTO is proud to report that we have been hard at work over the summer. The foundation has been laid for our greenhouse and work is scheduled to be complete by the beginning of school. We are very excited for this unique opportunity to expose our kids to hands on gardening and farming while using the vegetables grown for our Backpack Buddies program.
Many thanks to our Green Team, specifically Ms Platt and Kimberly Crane, for their hard work in making the greenhouse come to fruition. For those of you who may not know, the greenhouse is the culmination of close to 5 years of fundraising! The Green Team and Principal Fountain have met and prepared lesson plans to make the most of students time in the Greenhouse.
Next on the JBE PTO summer agenda is an updated website. Please click around as we feel like we have added a lot of helpful information. This is a work in progress so please be patient, but we plan to update all sections and add more. If you have any suggestions for something that needs to be added to the website, Please let us know!
Last but not least, the PTO is switching gears on fundraising this year and instead of our traditional Boosterthon fundraiser the PTO will be leading its inaugural Capital Campaign. We are still putting the finishing touches on our campaign, but look for more information just after the beginning of school.
