Principal's Message

November 17, 2017   


Dear Johnson Families,


I hope everyone had a wonderful week!  It was very busy here at Johnson celebrating American Education Week and holding our parent/teacher conferences.  I would like to thank all of the parents and guardians who attended American Education Week.  It was a great opportunity to see what your child’s school day is like first hand.  I would also like to thank everyone for the generous donations to the HCJ Food Drive.  It was a great success and we appreciate all your support.  I want to extend a big thank you to the PTO for all the hard work they put into organizing the first Fall Fun Night. It was a great event!

Fall Picture Retakes will take place on Wednesday, November 29th. On Thursday, November 30th, our school will be hosting its annual Barnes & Noble Night at the store location in Howell. The event will take place from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.  This year our staff members will be reading their favorite children’s books with attendees. We hope that you will be able to join us for an evening of storytelling!

Please see the flyer below for the schedule.

Barnes & Noble Night Flyer

Be sure to stop by Chic-fil-A during Barnes & Noble Night and support the PTO! Show the cashier this flyer when you purchase and the PTO gets a portion of the proceeds:

Just a reminder we have a shortened day on Wednesday, November 22nd and school is closed November 23rd and 24th for Thanksgiving. 

If your child is missing anything, please check out the HCJ Lost and Found by December 1st.  Anything left in the Lost and Found after December 1st will be donated.
