Hello, Friend of JP!
Well, we’re into Week 2 of our new normal. I hope you and those whom you love are well.
JP’s staff members and I have remained in close touch, so we’re aware of the many successes we’ve had with remote learning. We’re also aware that we (our educators), our pupils, and the latters’ parents have faced challenges.
During the past week, our staff members, in the face of the corona-virus situation, have been preparing for our school closure, necessitating a "remote-learning" mode for at least the next two weeks, Mar. 16th-20th and Mar. 23rd-27th. Thank you to our exemplary colleagues for the dedication, flexibility, collaboration, and creativity they’ve invested to make this adventure work; as usual, their professionalism and expertise have shone brightly throughout the week!
For the 13th year, JP has collected food for local families through donations to our annual Turkey Trot. This year was like no other.

As you may know, our JP P.T.O. is building an Amphitheater. We seek to commemorate all current JP pupils and staff members!
We’ll plant trees around our amphitheater with dedications to everyone currently at JP. Whether or not you participate in our brick sale, we’ll still, with your permission, include your child in our class dedications.
