February 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are waiting to see if the groundhog sees his shadow on Sunday, February 2nd to determine if we will have six more weeks of winter or an early spring. 

On February 6th, we will have our “Kids Heart Challenge” from 3-5 pm in the old gym. Students who have registered will jump rope to raise donations for The American Heart Association. Good luck to all our jumpers!

The week of February 3rd -7th, we will be participating in “Kindness Week”. Throughout the week, daily activities will take place that promote being a friend and creating a culture of positivity within our school. 

We have our Mid-Winter Recess February 17th – 21st. All of us at JAE wish everyone a restful and fun vacation! It is a great time to read a good book!

JAE Students Spearhead Card Collection for WWII veteran

When JAE third grade teacher Rebecca Pagnotta saw a television report about a veteran asking for Valentine’s Day cards, she set out on a mission. Starting with her own class of 24 students who created messages of thanks and appreciation, she and the students put a call out to other classes and received 500 cards. The cards have been mailed to U.S. Marine Corps Major Bill White, a 104-year-old man living in a senior citizen center in California, who requested as many Valentine’s Day cards as possible. The heartfelt gifts of kindness will be preserved with his lifetime scrapbooks of precious memories and items – including his Purple Heart.

JAE’s Souper Bowl Celebration!

Students in JAE took Super Bowl fever to another level with a Character Education initiative that will benefit people in the local community. Deborah Vieira and Lisa Celentano’s fourth grade class collected dozens of canned soups to be donated to the food pantry at St. Anthony’s Church. “Our class decided to help the community this month by collecting for our Souper Bowl as part of our Character Education program in class,” Mrs. Vieira said of the students who are continuing to learn beliefs and behaviors that are important for them to have as responsible citizens.
