E-Blast week of 12-6-15

Hello JHTC families,

It’s December but it certainly doesn’t feel like it! That’s good news for all the children that love spending time on our playground!

Scholastic orders have arrived! Orders are sorted and in the classroom!

We hope that you all appreciate the unique opportunity co-op offers to participate in “school” with your child. To make the most out of our program, we suggest being engaged with your child and experiencing class with them. (Hint, this is a nice way of saying- check your emails another time!)

We will be closed Tues 12/22- and reopen Monday 1/4 for the winter holidays.

Have a fantastic week of classes!
JHTC Board
