• I hope you are well and recovered from the traffic jams, long commutes, and overall mess that storm was.  I would like to give a huge shout out to the phenomenal custodial team at TJS (Giuseppe Ricci, Pat DeNegri, and Dennis Keelty) and Buildings and Grounds staff across the district.  Snow removal was in progress from the time the storm began until roughly 1:00 A.M. early Friday morning.  These hard-working individuals then traveled home, probably to face snow removal at their own residences, before heading back to district to check on the buildings and clear any additional snow and ice.  Without these dedicated professionals, our schools couldn't operate.  Since we have entered into the season of giving thanks, next time you are in any of buildings, thank a member of our maintenance team!
    Good news!!  The Book Fair is on and the Family Event tomorrow will move forward as planned.  The PTO Book Fairies were at TJS today, despite the weather, to set everything up!  The Book Fair Family Event will run from 10:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M.  Don't forget, you can also tour the TJS Learning Garden from 9:30 A.M. - 2:00 P.M.  Students will visit the Book Fair with their classes on Monday and Tuesday.  There will also be evening hours, so you can stop in and browse the selection when you come to conferences.  Please refer to the attachments for more information.
    Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held Monday and Tuesday.  All school days next week will be early dismissal days, 11/19 - 11/21.  School will be end at 12:45 P.M.  There will be no lunch service in the cafeteria.  Pizza will be served if it was pre-ordered through the PTO.  Please be reminded of kindergarten hours if your child is not part of KWRAP:  AM Kindergarten, 8:40 A.M. - 10:30 A.M., PM Kindergarten, 10:40 A.M. - 12:45 P.M.  
    Due to the snow day today, I cannot confirm a rescheduled date for classroom visitations.  With the holiday weekend on the horizon, it will more than likely be the week of November 26th or December 3rd.  More to follow shortly.
