Dear Jahn Families,

 Thank you to everyone who came out to support our 3rd annual North Pole fundraising event!  We had so much fun and it was great to see everyone.  Special thanks to Kelly Vincent, Dan Binder, and all the Friends of Jahn (FOJ) members for organizing an outstanding event.  We raised about $10,500!  Thank you to all of the parent volunteers for door decorating, setting up the stage, dropping off donations, and volunteering time on the day of the event.  We could not have done it without you all!

 The book fair is now closed.  Thanks to everyone who volunteered with set up, break down, or running the cash register.  Special thanks to Lori Lehman for organizing the book fair this year!

 We partnered with Emerald City this fall for musical theatre instruction.  Please note that the Emerald City end of year performance dates have changed.   The students in grades K,3,5 will perform on December 19th at 9:15am in the auditorium.  The students in grades 1,2,4 will perform on December 21st at 9:15am in the auditorium. 

 We will continue to have outdoor recess when the temperature is above 20 degrees.  Please send your children to school with warm clothes.  In addition, please remember that students are not allowed inside the building before 7:45am.
