Happy New Year!
Welcome back to the start of a new decade and the second half of the school year at JBS. We finished off 2019 strong with the Holiday Tree Lighting Parade (where we won Best School Spirit) and we had our first ever Winter Bazaar on the JBS Cafeteria balcony where JBS students had an opportunity to purchase items for family and friends. We still have many fun and wonderful activities to look forward to, please consider pitching and volunteer this year!
Thank you to Tracy Leary, our Box Tops for Education Coordinator. Her hard work raised $134 for JBS PTA!
To Stephanie Ferraiolo and Kelly Cole for coordinating the JBS PTA Holiday Float. Special thanks to Michael Aceto and Louie Camputaro for donating all material and building an award winning float celebrating Sliney School Spirit!
To Cristy Cantu for coordinating our first Cultural Arts Event for the year: “The Day the Crayons Quit!”
To everyone who supported our “Don’t Cook!” eat/take out fundraiser at Donovan’s Reef! $450 was raised for the JBS PTA!
To all the families & friends who supported our Mixed Bags/Boone Fundraiser. Over $1,494.00 was raised while helping the environment purchasing reusable bags! The Top Seller of our Mixed Bags/Boone Fundraiser was Oliver Malloy! Congratulations Oliver! Thank you to all the students who participated!
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the JBS Winter Bazaar! The JBS students who participated had a lot of fun shopping for their loved ones and a special thank you goes out to Andrea Celotto-Genovese for chairing this wonderful event!
The 4th Grade Stepping Up committee is working together chairing the JBS Pancake Breakfast at Eli’s on the Hill. From 8:00-10:00am for only $8.00 per person, you can enjoy pancakes, bacon, OJ and coffee while being served by the beautiful 4th graders of JBS school! Come on down and have breakfast, spend the morning sharing a few laughs and have a good time with your JBS Family. Tickets will be sold at the door.
Mark your calendars if you haven’t already for this year’s Someone Special Dance being held on Friday, February 7th from 6:00-8:00pm in the JBS Cafeteria. Kim Knight and Tanya Cardoso are chairing this fun school event – please be on the lookout for a Sign-Up Genius coming out soon. Many hands make light work, the more volunteers we have the better time all Parents can have enjoying this special event!
If you haven’t done so already please join the PTA and support us in supporting our school community. So far we’re over 60 members strong but that’s only a fraction of our community. Just being a member even if you can’t be an active participant shows your support. At the JBS PTA meetings we have conversations where everyone is welcomed to contribute ideas and where everyone’s voice is welcomed to be heard. Our goal is to come up with ways to support our children, parents and teachers. Be a part of it! We are the John B. Sliney community! As our Principal Dr. Clark says: “Together we can do so much!”
2020 PTA Meeting Schedule:
- Tuesday, January 7th at 6:00pm
- Thursday, January 30th at 3:45pm
- Thursday, February 27th at 6:00pm
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or if you need any additional information. Let’s finish the school year strong together!
We Stand Tall!
