Important Dates, Turkey Trot Celebration, Family Fest and MCAS Dates
Greetings from JAC!

We are back into the swing of learning at JAC and have had a busy week after returning from Winter Break and two snow days!  The students got back into their school routines and reconnected with classmates and teachers.  It was a pleasure walking through the building, welcoming the students and staff back, and hearing about vacations and snow adventures. We had a "mindful" Community Meeting this morning, which featured a visit from Susan Verde, the author of I Am Peace and many other books about mindfulness for students.

When you visit JAC, please take a look at our new pieces of mindful art on the Music Room windows and above the picture stairs.

Enjoy the long weekend,
Ms. Kennelly and Mr. Middlemiss
