Battle of the Green & White: JP's first annual spirit week:: June 7 to June 11, 2021
Sun, Jun 6 2:17pm

Dear JP Family,


We are starting a great new tradition at JP: the Battle of the Green and White!  Yes, we have sorted our JP students into JP's theme colors and they will compete throughout the year.  To kickstart this great tradition, we will have the first annual Battle of the Green and White next week.  Help your children prepare for this event, by assisting them to wear something green or white to school (depending on their teams).  Anything green or white would do, a T-shirt, a bandana, a mask or even a ribbon around the wrist.  Be creative!


Very importantly, the PTO wants to invite you to the  5th grader kickball game (the final event of the first spirit week) Friday, June 11th at 5:00 PM.  Please bring a picnic blanket with you so that we can spread out and keep social distancing guidelines.  We will sell lots of snacks (chips, popsicles, skittles, starburst and popcorn) as well as pizza slices.  So come hungry and bring all our JP students to support their teams.  5th graders will compete against the teachers! 


It is a great opportunity to see old JP friends (and meet new ones) before the beginning of the summer.  So please join us!  Thank you very much to all the JP parents who have signed up as volunteers to make this spirit week possible.  We appreciate you!
