Introducing Fireside Chats

Fireside Chats are a new monthly event at PJS. The purpose of these informal gatherings  is to clarify aspects of our program, provide resources or information to parents pertinent to our curriculum, and to discuss parenting topics in general.  Upcoming Fireside Chats include:

January Fireside Chat: Wednesday, January 15th @ 5pm: "The Benefits of Mixed-Age Classrooms at PJS: Toddlers through Grade 3."

February Fireside Chat: Wednesday, February 19th @ 8am: "How to Build Positive Literacy Habits at Home: Toddler through Grade 5" with special guest Dr. Suzanne Gespass. Dr. Gespass is a professor of Literacy Education with over 25 years experience whose research focuses on reading assessment, emergent literacy and motivation for reading.

If you have any thoughts, suggestions, or ideas for future Fireside Chats, please let us know by emailing Mrs. Clark at
