The WRMED Board adopted their policy for School Choice at their November 12th board meeting.  School Choice is for students entering grades K through 5 and will be limited to the amount of available space in each building and classroom.  The window for parents to apply for school choice between NewBrook, Townshend and Jamaica is open and will be closed at 4pm on Friday, December 21st.  Applications for school choice can be picked up at NewBrook School, Townshend School and Jamaica School.  Families interested in school choice are encouraged to visit and tour the school they are interested in and gather as much information together as possible before completing the application.  If you have multiple children you only need to fill out one application unless you want your children to go to different schools.  Please feel free to call the school and speak with Heidi if you have any questions about School Choice.  

TES L'after afterschool programs, Session 2 runs from November 5th through December 20th.

Bookmobile will be coming to visit the Prek and Kindergarten classes on December 6

Basketball registration forms for grades 3 - 6 in Thursday Packets on Thursday, November 8th.  Return as soon as possible.


Reminder that if you hope to be a volunteer for any sports activity, winter sports, field trip or event then make sure you have completed the paperwork for background checks and have had your fingerprinting done.  If you have not gone through this process you will be unable to volunteer/chaperone.  You are not even allowed to transport just your child.  Please see Heidi for the paperwork to start this process immediately if you are interested.  It takes approximately 8 weeks to get fingerprint results back.



Reminder:  In case of bad weather, we will be using an automated calling system to let families know that school is canceled.  Please make sure we have your current phone number for this telephone call.  However, if your phone is not working or if you haven’t received a phone call but are unsure whether there is school, the following local radio stations also carry school cancellations:  WYRY, WKVT, WTSA, WKNE.  There is no guarantee that any television stations will carry the cancellation information.
