Wow! Spirit Week and our Capital Campaign Kick-Off was so much fun! I loved spending the day with our JBE family, playing on the playground and dunking our teachers. We've made great progress but still have a ways to go...
The capital campaign is our new fundraiser at JBE this year where 100% of the funds stay right here at our school. We are looking to have 100% participation among families and teachers. Currently 75% of our teachers have given to the cause but only 20% of our families! Let's even the score! You can track our participation here!
We are pushing to be at completion by November 20th so we can budget for the spring and next year. All classes with 100% participation will have a popsicle party!
Please note the following activities through the month of October:
Thursday - 10/11 PTO Meeting at 7:30 am
Tuesday - 10/16 - School Picture Day
Sunday - 10/21 - Children's Day Festival in Park West! Visit our JBE booth and buy a Pelican SnoBall (proceeds go to JBE from their sales)
