Dear JA Families,


Thank you to all of the families who joined us last Thursday for our Fun Fair. We had a fantastic turnout and a very successful evening. We are appreciative of everyone who supported the silent auction


Our Graduation Ceremony will take place tomorrow, June 15th at 9:00 a.m. At this assembly, we will be presenting the sports, classroom and school leadership awards. We invite all interested parents to attend the ceremony and congratulate our graduates! Graduates and their parents are invited to continue their celebrations in the library.


This is the final Weekly Wednesday of the school year and I wish everyone a safe and wonderful summer!


Junior Academy Year-End Camp

Our Junior Academy Year-End Camp begins next week and runs from June 19th to 28th!  If you haven’t registered but would like to, please contact Nick Johnson at .


Used Uniform Pieces

If you have any gently used uniform pieces that you would like to donate for our Used Uniform Sale in the fall, we would gratefully accept donations. Uniform pieces may be dropped off at the main office.


Fall Camp – Grade 5-8        

A reminder that deposits are due for students who will be in grades 5-8 this coming September and who wish to attend our Fall Leadership Trip to Camp Onondaga. Please see the attached form for additional details.


Final Day of School

The final day of this school year is Friday, June 16th. We will begin the day with an assembly, and school talent show. Students may wear free dress, report cards will be distributed and there will be an early pick-up. 12:00 (K-2), 12:10 (3-5), 12:20 (6-8). Please note, there will not be an aftercare option on this day so please plan accordingly.


Lost and Found
Many items have accumulated in the Lost and Found this spring.  Items will be on display Wednesday and Thursday this week.  Please be sure to take a look as unclaimed items will be removed and donated on Friday afternoon.



Summer Mailing – Please look for our summer mailing package to arrive at your home towards the end of July.  It will contain information about teaching arrangements (who is teaching which grade), forms that need to be signed and returned annually, as well the special dates and activities for the fall.



Class Parent / Party for the Fall

At the beginning of the school year, parents from various classes have gotten together for an evening either at someone’s home or at a local restaurant for drinks, to chat and get to know each other. This year, many of these social evenings happened in the late fall.  In an effort to welcome new families and promote community within JA, it would be ideal if these events could occur closer to the beginning of the school year. If you are willing to organize or host a get together in the fall please contact Nick Johnson, . We have already had one parent volunteer to host the grades 1 and 2 party! We are still looking for volunteers who are willing to organize / host a get-together for the following grades:


Preschool and Kindergarten

Grades 3 and 4

Grades 5 and 6

Grades 7 and 8



Thank you for a terrific year and I wish everyone a safe and happy summer vacation.

See you in September!
