Volunteers Needed for Traffic Control:
Safety Patrol is in need of adult volunteers to help out with traffic control in the morning. Mrs. Raha needs 3 additional parents to help and make sure our students are safe when crossing the street. We would appreciate any amount of time you can spare in helping out. Thank you to the MANY parents who are already volunteering their time.

You can still order yearbooks at www.treering.com. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to remember your child’s school year in pictures. The MSJE yearbook is in color and is a wonderful memento of your child’s time here at MSJE.
First Day of School for 2013- 2014 School Year – Wednesday, August 28th, 2013
All students are expected to report to school on the first day, Wednesday, August 28th 2013. Students who have not attended the first two days of school will be dropped at the end of the third day of school. Students who are dropped will not be guaranteed a seat at the school and may have to be overloaded to other schools upon return.
The only exceptions will be students who are absent due to illness. If a student is absent the first three days due to illness, parents or guardians must notify the school every day the student is absent. Seats will not be held for students on extended vacations or other optional activities, whether or not the school is notified.
Change of Address/Residency:
Please be reminded that it is the responsibility of parents under Board Policy 5111 to notify the school office within five (5) days if they move in or out of the attendance area. Any move within the attendance area still requires four (4) new proofs of residency to verify the new address. Failure to do so will result in revocation of the student’s placement at the school.
Great News!! Ms. Nguyen, 1st grade teacher and Ms. Brah, 5th grade teacher, have volunteered to organize a Variety Show for students.
