Calendar Raffle

This fall (2015) we will be trying a new school fundraiser, a calendar raffle – you pay $10 for a calendar for the month of November. Every day of that month, a name will be pulled and that person will win prizes worth at least $40 (often more), including gift cards to local shops and restaurants and many surprises.  All proceeds benefit JSS.  Look for information at Open House and in the newsletter.


Class Placement Form

Each spring you will be given a Class Placement Form to fill out with information about your child, their learning style and any other information the school should know, and submit it to the school office.  The information you provide helps the school as they choose the best teacher/classroom for your child for the next school year.


Code of Conduct

CORI

This background check form is required for all adults who volunteer in the school.  If you are interested in volunteering (and we love and appreciate any volunteering from our families!), we will provide you with the form – simply fill it out and give it, with a copy of your driver’s license, to our school office..  The office of VINS (Volunteers in Northampton Schools) processes the forms and your CORI certification is good for three years.  If you have already had a CORI check for volunteer work at another school, that CORI is good for JSS as well.


Coffee and Tea Sales

JSS sells a special Jackson Street blend of Dean’s Beans coffee and several custom blends of Tea Guys teas.  The products are all organic, fair-trade and locally roasted or blended, and the profits benefit JSS.  Order forms are available in the school office or we can email one to you. You can order any month or place a regular order.  For more information or to order, contact elhorn@mindspring.com.


Coffee Hour

Every other Wednesday morning from 9:00 to 10:00, there is a coffee hour for parents (and other guardians, grandparents, etc.) in the Family Center, located off the lobby, across from the cafeteria.  Free coffee, tea and snacks are provided, and it is a good opportunity to catch up with other parents.  Ms. Agna, our principal, usually drops by, and there are sometimes special guests or speakers.


Cultural Arts

this is a division of the PTO that handles field trips, guest artists/speakers/performers and other special events that enrich our school.  If you are interested in volunteering for Cultural Arts, we would love to have you!
