December 2019

Dear Jacoby Creek School Families,

I hope that everyone has plans for a relaxing and fun Thanksgiving holiday. We have so many things to be thankful for here at Jacoby Creek School. I would personally like to express my gratitude for all of the support that the JCS families provide in making this school a safe and productive place to learn. I am happy to report that attendance at parent-teacher conferences was excellent, drivers are working to make our parking lot safer, and our students are fortunate to have the support of countless volunteers working in their classrooms, on committees, and at their sporting events. Thank you!!

This is a long Panther Press with a lot of important information. Please take a moment to read it over. It is very helpful when the entire JCS community is informed. Thank you!!!

The School Site Council is sending out three survey to families this school year. The data collected from these surveys will help guide decision making for our school, so it is very important that every voice is heard! Your opinions are very important in the process of decision making on how to use our school’s resources. PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO COMPLETE THE SURVEYS! The link for the first survey was sent in November via eblast and it is also included in the School Site Council section of this email. The next two will come in December and January. There will be paper copies of the survey available in the office if you would prefer paper over the digital version. The survey will be completely confidential, so please feel comfortable expressing your honest opinion.

I hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday season!
