About – JBS PTA

There’s so much going on!

The month of October has been a whirlwind!  The Book Fair, Picture Day, Scarecrow on the Green and the Fall Fun Run were just some of the events our children enjoyed!

Thank you to Mrs. Melillo for working so hard at coordinating the Book Fair.  It was the first book fair that JBS has had in many years and the children loved it!  There was a lot of excitement on the Book Store Balcony, thank you to all the volunteers who took the time to help make it possible.

Thank you to Ashley Murphy who coordinated Picture day!  Everyone is looking forward to their photos and class pictures, thank you so much for putting it together!

Thank you to the SoundRunner, Bridgette Montag and Melissa Fitzpatrick for putting together the Fall Fun Run!  Bridgette asked me to share the following: “Sliney’s Annual Fall Fun Run was such a great family day! The weather was perfect- sunny and brisk. Our runners were phenomenal- every child crossed the finish line to the applause from our parent cheer stations. Congratulations Enrique on your winning time! SoundRunner sponsored our event and they brought the MAGIC making it a race to remember. A huge thank you goes out to Amy and Preston Ranton- alumni who continue to support our Sliney community! Cannot wait for next year! Runners- on your mark, get set, go!!!

Thank you to Karyn Sullivan, Allison Greco and Mr. Dormer for coordinating and putting together our Scarecrow on the Green!  It came out beautiful with the help of some of our very own talented JBS artists.  You can see the pictures of the beautiful JBS Scarecrow on Facebook: Sliney PTA or you can stop by the town green and check it out yourself: Together We Can Do So Much!

Thank you to Jolene Tracy for creating and coordinating JBS’ 90th Anniversary Spirit Wear! It’s this season’s hottest fashion and raised almost $500 for the JBS PTA!  Thank you so much for your support!

Thank you to Kimberly Knight for putting together our school directory.  It was a lot of work and we appreciate all of Kim’s help!  Please stop by the Village Express for all your shipping needs, they sponsored our school directory and made it affordable for us to print a copy for everyone in the school!

Thank you to Cristi Cantu for and kicking off our first session of Cool-Ology!  So far the students are enjoying the hands on STEM/STEAM activities, thank you to Mrs. St. Pierre for pitching in so all students who signed up could join!

Right now we have our Mixed Bags Fundraiser in flight, please consider buying your reusable bags from Boone!  Click here: Mixed Bags Fundraiser and find our online store.  It’s really easy, just point, click & ship – everything will be delivered straight to your front door!  Email your family and friends so they can buy one too, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and they’ll need bags for all those groceries!  Thank you in advance for your support!

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!”

Please feel free to email me  if you have any questions or if you need any additional information.

We Stand Tall!
