Dear JICS families,
Thank you for helping to make our first event of the year such a success! If you were unable to attend, please visit the page we created to see some photos from the event and read the speech that Parents’ Association (PA) President, Beth Corcoran delivered.
We are still in need of many more volunteers for this school year. There are all sorts of opportunities requiring differing amounts of time. Please visit our “Volunteer Opportunities” section of the website and sign up today.
If you missed an opportunity to fill out the parent survey, now is your chance! We’ll be compiling the results very soon so please take a minute to let the school know what you think.
Please keep in mind that the ongoing efforts of the parents’ association are 100% funded through your annual membership fees and generous donations. With payments going online this year, there may be some confusion as to whether your fees have been paid. To have paid your fees and/or donations, you would have had to go to the parent website and paid through the PA section.
As in prior years, we are asking for a $25/child membership fee plus a suggested donation (now $150/child – fully tax deductible - to offset rising PA expenses such as increased classroom grants). We do recognize that some parents may prefer to pay only their family’s membership fee and some may prefer to donate more or less than the suggested amount. No amount is too small or too big! These funds support so many wonderful programs at the school including classroom grants, parent education events and lice checks.
Looking forward to more events this year!
The JICS PA
