Juniper Ridge PARENT WEEKLY UPDATE June 18-22, 2018

Hi Parents,

Happy Father's Day Weekend to all the great male role models in the Juniper Ridge Community! Enjoy your day on Sunday.

I need to read report cards this weekend so you are getting the Weekly Update on a Friday night.  Enjoy!

I hope you received your Parent Thank you Card and Pen as a thank you from your children~ maybe check their backpack for it if you didn't! It is our way of thanking you parents for all your support in 2017-2018.

Please check the LOST AND FOUND! SO many great pieces of clothing. We have sorted it and made it more accessible to view.

If your child rides their scooter or bike to Juniper Ridge please remind them to dismount as they enter onto the school site-so the minute they leave the sidewalk and come into school proximity- they need to get off their scooter and bike. Similarly, at the end of the day- they are to WALK their scooter or bike and mount it when they reach the sidewalk. This has been extremely challenging and some children are endangering others. Parents feel free to help me out and ask kids to get off if you see them breaking this expectation.

Thank you to the PAC! All your fundraising parents has been so appreciated this year! The PAC approved and has paid for at their meeting Mon. June 11: 36 Chromebooks, 8 ipads with cases and cart, 50 stacking chairs on a trolley for school use, new high jump standards and bar for track and field and they paid for a Guest Speaker coming Nov. 20, 2018 to discuss Diversity and Inclusion! Thank you Parents of Juniper for all of this!
