One Meeting Opportunity in January-Mark your calendar for Monday, 1/24
The January Mandatory Parent Meeting is Monday, January 1-24-22. This is our annual Curriculum & Testing Night. Primary and Intermediate grade meeting times will be staggered.
Families will meet in their Jaguar’s classroom. It is important to arrive on time to Curriculum night as there is a great deal of information shared. Gates will close fifteen minutes after each start time and families arriving after that time will not be admitted. Please allow additional time for parking. More information to follow in January from your child’s teacher(s).
Free Meal Application and School Benefits-please apply!!
For the 2021-2022 school year, all students will receive school meals at no charge; however, I encourage all families to complete the online application for free meal benefits at www.myschoolapps.com.
While all students will receive meals at no charge, the application provides other key benefits – additional funding for schools, technology assistance and discounts for students such as clothing and college entrance exams. All households are encouraged to apply. Completing the online application is secure, convenient and worry-free. Results are available within two working days. Eligibility is based on household size and income. Once approved, the benefits are good for the entire year.
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM District Application Process for 2022/23 School Year
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM PTA Board Meeting at BVF
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM SAC Meeting via Zoom
As we look to 2022, we are excited about our upcoming activities like our rescheduled Grandparents Days, our Fall In LOVE with Reading Book Fair, the Be My Valentine Dance, and the Jaguar Jog, among others.
