Save the Date: Friday, February 9, 6:00-8:00 pm
Save the date for the 5th & 6th Grade Social at Journeys School. This fun event with a DJ, activities, food and winter olympics theme is open to all 5th and 6th graders in the area. Spread the word and invite your 5th and 6th grade friends! Parents, if you'd like to get involved, there is a planning meeting on Monday, January 8 at 8:15 am in South Ed room (last building on right before playing field).

Welcome Back
It was great to see students seamlessly back in action this week. Thank you for sending them prepared for school and the great outdoors. Pray for some fun snow to play in this weekend!

Please Drop Off at the Welcome Center Only
Many parents are using the gravel access road for morning drop-offs of students. Please see Nancy's letter for details, but we humbly ask you to drop off at the Welcome Center only and not drop off above the elementary school. Thank you!

Save the Date for Winter Journeys
The elementary school will be diving into some engaging in-depth studies during winter journeys on February 14 and 15. These will not be overnight journeys but may involve extended days and will take place in the valley. Please stay tuned for details in the journey letters that will come home in folders by 2/4. Older students will be apprenticing at jobs around Teton County, middle students will be immersing themselves in the elements of the Periodic Table, and younger students studying the night sky. Planning and organizing has already begun. Please let us know of any special considerations.

Thank you to many parents for all of the holiday cheer and thoughtfulness!
Thanks to Kate Falk and Tamsen for help with snacks and rags! We still need volunteers for these duties next week, if you are able: sign up here
Next up on 1/19: Heather Overholser.
