Principal’s Corner

Dear Families,

November is here. Be sure to check out the school website for updated information and pictures of our events: www.johnstownschools.org.

The first quarter ends on November 2nd.  Report cards will be distributed at parent-teacher conferences either on Wednesday, November 14th or Thursday, November 15th.  If you have not signed up for a conference with your child’s teacher, please call or email to sign up. It is important to have open communication to ensure your child’s educational success. We appreciate the time you take to meet with us.

On November 8th we will honor our veterans at our Veteran’s Day Breakfast at 8:00 am until 8:45 am.  Please return the form that went home last week if you are interested in attending. Students who are attending the breakfast with their family members should arrive to school with their veteran.

Students will be dismissed at 11:45 am on November 14th and 15th. Also, on November 20th, we will be dismissing at 2:50 pm for our Emergency Go Home Early Drill.  Please make an effort to pick your child up on time as all school personnel are also directed to leave for the drill.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,

Corinne Cotter
Pleasant Ave. Principal
