August 25 Parent NewsletterPublished by alesha.lemmon on Tue, 08/25/2015 - 16:02
Welcome to Grizzly Nation! Our teachers and staff have worked tirelessly over the summer to be ready for your children and we are thrilled to have them. We hope this next year will be enjoyable for you and your students. Each week we will be sending out a newsletter so that you are informed of the current events and activities going on in our school. The newsletter will also include a copy of your child’s grades for your information. We encourage you to be actively involved in your child’s education and growth. We feel privileged to be apart of your child’s life.
PJHS Grizzlies' School Store
Does your little Grizzly have a bear of an appetite? Send them over to the Grizzlies' School Store which features treats starting at 25 cents along with many other school related items.
Bingo has begun! Every Tuesday in Mrs. Gillie’s classroom (C-75) a bingo game will be held for all students wishing to participate. Students can win prizes throughout the term and a chance to win a Sip 'N gift card at the end of the term.
PTA Clothing Fundraiser
Our PTA is sponsoring a clothing fundraiser that ends on August 28. Send your gently used clothing with your child to school to help earn money for our school. The class that brings in the most amount of clothing (in pounds) will win a special activity in the Grizzly Den on Friday.
We want your box tops! Box Top money is used directly at our school to fund student activities throughout the year. Additionally, for every 10 box tops turned in students can earn a five-point extra credit coupon to be used in any class. When they turn in 50 box tops they earn the extra credit coupon plus a free homework pass. Box tops can be turned into your child’s third period teacher.
It’s not too late to try out for the girl’s tennis team. Your Lady Grizzly just needs to go out to the tennis courts after school before the end of the week. If she doesn’t have a racket, we can provide her with one.
Loafer Mountain Hike
We will be hiking Loafer Mountain on September 11. There will be an information meeting this Friday during Den Time in the Activity Room and we’ll discuss the details. If your child likes exercise and the outdoors send them to the meeting. Let out your inner grizzly.
Practice for cross country is everyday from 2:45–4:00 at the school. Please contact Coaches Bragg or Bird if you have further questions.
