Principal's Message, February 14, 2020

 

Dear Johnson Families,

I hope everyone enjoyed the week.  We will be celebrating our 100th day of school this Tuesday, February 18th.  All students and staff are invited to dress like they are 100 years old!  It’s hard to believe we are already half way through the school year!   Congratulations to our 5th graders for an excellent chorus performance on January 16th

Just a reminder, school is closed on Monday, February 17th, for President’s Day.

This year Johnson School is celebrating Read Across America during the week of February 24th with plenty of Spirit Week activities including our annual “Storybook Character Day”. All students and staff are invited to join in the fun.  Please see the scheduled activities below.

Spirit Week Activities

The PTO will also be hosting the Spring Book Fair from February 24th – 28th.  The Book Fair Night and Ice Cream Social will be held Thursday, February 27th.  Our Spring Pictures are right around the corner on March 5th. 

I would like to thank Mrs. Glushko for organizing our annual “Souper-Bowl” event.  We asked each student to bring in a can of soup and place it in the “TEAM BIN” of who they thought would win the Super Bowl.  We received over 500 cans and all donations were delivered to the Jackson Food Pantry. 

Thank you to the PTO for hosting the Sweet Heart Dance on February 7th.  We had a great turn out and everyone had a great time! 

Kindergarten Registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be taking place March 16th – March 20th    from 9:30am to 11:30am.  If you have a child turning five years of age on or before October 1, 2020, registration packets are available online or at the school.  Please contact Johnson to schedule an appointment for the week of registration.  To pre-register and print out the necessary paperwork, please visit the link below.
