    Dear TJS Families,
    Happy Friday!  Thank you to all that came out for Family Fun Night and to the PTO for sponsoring!
    This year TJS will be holding a school-wide "Souper Bowl" running from January 23-February 3!  The Souper Bowl is a soup drive that will benefit the Interfaith Food Pantry in Morris Plains.  However, due to the needs of the pantry, we will be accepting items other than soup as well.  Please review the attachment for more information as well as a list of items that can be donated.
