Summer has zipped by and we are excited to finish our final preparations before opening the doors for the 2015-2016 school year.

Class placement letters have been mailed.  If you have not received yours,  please contact the office.  You may not have completely registered your student for this year.  

Back To School informational fliers will be available for pick-up in the classrooms on "Meet the Teacher" day on Friday, September 4, from 9:00-10:00am.  Doors will open at 8:55.  Please exit promptly so we can continue our preparations for Tuesdays' first day of classes.   We will have well over 700 students at TJ this year, and if you are able to walk, bicycle, or car pool for the event, it should reduce the parking crunch.

Student drop-of by vehicle will continue to be on the Seaton Lane side of the building, and Oak Street will be closed during arrival and dismissal for bus unloading and loading.  Walkers may enter from the Oak Street or Seaton Lane sides of the building.  Doors open at 8:35 and school starts at 8:50am.  Dismissal will be at 3:50pm and dismissal is at 1:15pm on early release days.  Please see the 2015-2016 List Calendar for the full day Wednesdays this year.

Back to School Night for grades 4 and 5 is Thursday, September 17th and on Thursday, September 24th for grades 2 and 3. More details to follow.

Forms to fill out, sign and return with your student on the first day of school are available as follows:
