Weekly Update 5/18/18

Sun Screen and Bug Repellent:
This is the season when the sun and little critters can pose safety concerns.  If you wish your child to use a sunscreen and bug repellent, we ask that you apply an eight hour/long acting sunscreen and bug repellent before leaving home.  We request this as a safety measure so children who have issues and/or sensitivities are protected. Should there be a medical need for additional applications, with a doctor’s note, a teacher will re-apply the product for the ECP children and help a child to re-apply it in Kindergarten - Grade 5.  If re-application is necessary, please give the product, with the note in a plastic bag, to the child’s teacher. Please remember that you may want to provide your child with the following:

  • A wide-brimmed hat that will protect the face, neck and ears

  • Ultraviolet Protective Factor (UPF) protective clothing such as lightweight long-sleeve shirts

  • Unbreakable sunglasses that offer 100% UVA and UVB protection

Yearbooks: It's time to order your yearbook! Students in every grade will be represented by their Class Picture, as well as in pages of candid photos.  This 8 x 11" hardcover book will also capture all of the great events we treasure at PJS, including the Bonfire, Halloween, the Musical, the Olympics, and so much more. Use the attached form to order. The deadline to order is Monday, May 21st.
