Letter from the Principal
WELCOME . . .
. . . or welcome back! We hope you and your family have had an restful, enriching summer together.
JP’s staff members, our Parent-Teacher Organization’s officers, and I are looking forward to another year of caring and learning together. We invite you to join us.
In late Aug., you’ll receive a packet of information regarding the start of school, your child(ren)’s placement, and other relevant news. Some of the forms that we’ll send home in the packet you can as easily complete on the Princeton Public Schools’ Parent Portal, so we encourage you, if you have electronic access, to sign up there; you’ll then be able to use the portal throughout our school year. (Either of our secretaries, Michele Cowell or Marilou Garcia, can assist you in signing up, if necessary.)
On Tue., Sep. 3rd, at 8 a.m., we’ll hold an Open House for New Families. Our P.T.O. will provide light breakfast refreshments and our P.T.O. officers and I shall provide some first-day information to ease your and our new pupils’ adjustment to school; then, at 8:30, our fifth-grade ambassadors will take new families to visit their classrooms and meet their teachers. After that, our P.T.O. has created a scavenger hunt (with a floor plan!), so new families can tour JP (and see, among other things, our new amphitheater that we built this summer).
We invite returning JP youngsters and their families to visit their new classrooms and meet their new teachers (and, perhaps, double back and greet their teachers from last year!) starting at 8:45 on the 3rd. It will be great to see our old-timers (and their parents)!
We’ve planned a great year. Welcome to JP 2019-20!
