Dear JAE Families, 
It is hard to believe but we are entering the last two months of the school year!!  May and June promise to be both busy and exciting for all of the students and staff at JAE.
 
April was a very busy month at JAE.  We celebrated Autism Awareness Month, WARM Reading Week and College & Career Week.  For Autism Awareness Month, all of our students read the book, The Girl Who Thought in Pictures: The Story of Dr. Temple Grandin. After reading the story, our students engaged in discussions and activities about the book and shared what they had learned about autism with their classmates.  During our WARM Reading Week, Mrs. DiGiovanni organized a daily reading BINGO game for our students to complete while also encouraging them to read more both in school and at home.  Students earned prizes for their participation as well.  In addition, Mrs. Costa, organized our College and Career Week which allowed our students to learned more and different local colleges/universities, what college is like as well as learn about different career options.  Many of our parents were also able to create and share videos that introduced our students to new and exciting careers. 

 

This past week, we celebrated National Teacher Appreciation Week.  Our teachers always show outstanding dedication and professionalism and this year they were really challenged more than ever.  I am so proud of the work that our teachers have done this year despite all of the challenges they have faced.  We wanted to take a moment to recognize our incredible staff of teachers and how they came together to make sure that our students were their priority. 
As we look towards June, please stay tuned for information regarding Field Day and our Moving Up Ceremony.  We are still in the planning stages, but it looks like we will be able to host Field Day for each grade, with specific Covid-19 modifications in place to keep everyone safe.  We are also planning for an “in person” moving up ceremony for our fifth graders, with multiple ceremonies scheduled outside on June 22nd here at JAE.  Specific information regarding each event will be shared with families in the near future.
 
Sincerely,
Scott Bullis, Principal
