Head of School Update: Friday October 13, 2017

Dear JH Classical Academy Parents,
There is much information below, and many reminders, so I will keep my letter short today.
  • The 5th & 6th Graders recited poems captured on video and we are sharing them today via Vimeo for the first time.  I hope the links work!
  • Classroom History and Science projects launched last week with the 5th Grade cell project. See photos and read details about the project below. 
  • A heartfelt thanks to the parents who helped raise $76,000 at Old Bill’s Fun Run this year! We will receive the match at the annual awards ceremony on Monday, October 23rd at the NMWA. 
  • Enjoy learning about our new Registrar and Information Manager, Betsy Davis, who moved from New Jersey to Jackson Hole two weeks ago.  She has accomplished an astonishing amount in 2 weeks!
  • Please invite new families to our most important admissions event: Discover Classical Learning on Thursday, November 2.  Faculty are ready for more students, and students are ready for more peers. 
  • Our parent training series will continue with Mrs. Molder's Spalding Training on Tuesday, October 24th from 2:40-3:20 PM. Soon, I will announce Singapore, Latin and Poetry parent training classes.
  • If you are interested in an upate on the entitlement process for our hopeful future campus, please come to Coffee & Conversations in the Art Room next Tuesday, October 17th after drop-off at 8:15 AM
Life is full and good at JH Classical Academy.  I am seeing wonder and joy in the classrooms, and having fun conversations over lunch.  It is a privilege to be with your children every day!  Just a reminder that parents are welcome to join our opening ceremonies and lunch any day of the week, and we encourage you to mark your calendars for our JHCA events.  
Come enjoy Family Fun Night tonight at 6:00 PM!
Mrs. Polly J. Friess
