Panther Press

Dear Jacoby Creek Families,

I hope that this month’s Panther Press finds you doing well.  Even with a week off from school, February was a busy month here at JCS.  I continue to be amazed by our JCS students, families, and staff. We truly have a school to be proud of, and it is because of how much effort and pride people put into making this place great! This month’s Panther Press is full of congratulations for all of the JCS students who have worked hard and represented our school in academics and in sports.

There have been a lot of illnesses going around with all of this cold weather.  Thank you for keeping your child home if he/she has a fever or is vomiting. If your child is not ill, please be sure to make regular attendance a priority.  It is so important for students to be here every day to get the most out of their education.  

 The Jacoby Creek Children’s Educational Foundation is really gearing up for the the annual AUCTION!  Thank you so much to the JCCEF members for all of the time and energy being invested in making this a great event!  Come and join us on Saturday March 21, 2020 at the Arcata Community Center for the annual JCCEF Dinner, Auction, and Dance. Tickets are on sale through March 18, but ticket prices increase on March 1.  Donations for silent and live auctions are still needed. Please drop off items in the office. Also, it takes a lot of volunteers to make this event a success.  Please see the link below to sign up!

I hope that you have a wonderful month.  Please keep me updated if there is any information that you would like to see included in the next month’s Panther Press.
