Junior Joggers

117-SeeThrough-2Come jog with Jason Lee! Jason Lee Junior Joggers will continue to run through the middle of November.  Jason Lee students, parents, and staff can walk or jog laps during recess at Jason Lee every Tuesday and Thursday between 11:00-12:50.  Parents and siblings can use their own card to mark their laps. Any laps completed by parents or siblings will be counted toward the students’ classroom totals, not an individual student’s total. Volunteers are always welcome and needed to mark lap cards!

Be sure to fill out your RSD volunteer form so you can come help!

Box Tops for Education

IMAG9886_1As one of their fund raisers, Jason Lee collects Box Tops for Education.  Those little Box Tops add up.  Over the years Jason Lee has collected over $18,000 in Box Tops.  Jason Lee families do a great job of turning in Box Tops.  I found one yesterday on a Jet Dry bottle from Costco.  And this little guy does not expire until 2020!

Box Tops have expiration dates.  No use in telling your great aunt that though or she might stop collecting them for you all together.  That font size is way too small for her to read anyway.  Once you clip and collect all those tiny coupons, take a peek at the expiration date at the bottom.  Sort through your box tops before you send them into school.  If the Box Tops are expired, pitch them!  Checking the expiration date is a great job for your Jason Lee student’s young eyes.     Make sure they check the expiration date before securing the Box Tops to the collection sheet or putting them in an envelope.  We find taping the Box Tops to the sheet ensures they will not fall off in transit.

Box Tops do not need to be trimmed perfectly, but they do need to keep the integrity of the information on the Box Tops. If Box Tops 4 Education is unable to read the acronym (see the FIN in the top left of the dark folder) or expiration date (located in the bottom center), they will not accept the Tops.  They do not accept expired Tops either.

For every 25 Box Tops a Jason Lee student turns in that are not expired and are clearly labeled with their full name, teacher, and grade they will receive a prize.

Thank you for collecting Box Tops for Jason Lee Elementary and contributing to a successful fund raiser.

Thank you!

PTA is getting ready for a great 2017-2018 school year

Jason Lee PTA has been busy getting ready for a great school year.  Last May we met with Mr. Jisa & Mr. Neill to hammer out the Jason Lee Elementary calendar of events for the 2017-2018 school year.  Over the summer, the Jason Lee PTA got a new website.  Take a moment to browse through the calendar, contact information, PawPrint newsletters, and past projects the PTA has completed.

discount-pta-card-websiteThis year, Jason Lee PTA created a discount card for PTA members to use at Jason Lee events.  Save on yearbook and T-shirt purchases.  Get a glow stick at skate night, free items at the bookfair, and extra tickets for the carnival.

Jason Lee PTA members will receive a Jason Lee discount card, the RSD discount card for businesses around town, and WSPTA discounts to Silverwood, Wild Waves, Great Wolf lodge, rental cars, FedEx, and more.   Plus enjoy the National PTA discounts as well.

When the homework folders come home the first day of school, August 29,  look for your new attendance magnet, as well as a magnet with all the dates of the PTA meetings.  Membership forms will also be in the homework folder with an envelope to help you get your completed form back to school.  If your budget has been keeping you from being a member, please be sure to check the PTA membership scholarship box.  If you love PTA and would like to donate a membership to your child’s teacher, a friend, or to the scholarship fund, there is a space to designate that as well.

Teachers whose classrooms have 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% PTA membership will be rewarded with scholastic dollars which can be spent at the fall book fair.  Help your teacher earn up to $50 scholastic dollars.

Become a PTA member.  For $12 you are a part of the largest advocate group for children.  You get great discount cards.  Plus the return on your investment is impressive.  The Jason Lee PTA spent $85 per each kid last year.  Be a part of investing in the students at Jason Lee Elementary, and advocating for children throughout the USA.
