October 2019

Dear Jacoby Creek Families,
Happy October!  It has been a terrific start to the school year, and October promises to bring a lot of learning, fun, and Panther Pride to our community!

As a reminder, school is dismissed at 1:15 on Monday, September 30 for Early Success Conferences.  The bus will be leaving JCS at 1:15 that day rather than at 2:15.  There will not be Academic support classes and After School Enrichment classes on this day.  

There are many great events planned for the coming month.  Our Panther Pentathlon, Harvest Carnival, and sporting events all offer great ways for us to come together.  I look forward to seeing everyone at these events.
Thank you so much to everyone for supporting our Panther Pentathlon.  This fundraising effort provides so many programs for our students that would not otherwise be possible.  Your support makes a BIG difference. 
I also wanted to remind families that our jcsk8.org website is a great source of information about all things school related.  You will find school calendars, lunch menus, and important announcements. Be sure to check it out! Also, our (707) 822-4896 school phone number does not have a functional voicemail.  If you want to leave a message for the school, or if you are calling outside of the school office hours, please use the (707) 633-9090 voicemail number.  
This month’s Panther Press includes a lot of great information about what is happening at our school.  I hope that this newsletter can help you to know about all of the celebrations, challenges, and fun events that happen at JCS.
