March’s theme for Ms. Yacono and Miss Hoy’s classes will be “Let’s Pretend”, while our toddler class and pretoddler class will explore topics around the theme of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and St. Patrick’s Day. Your teacher’s newsletters will have more specifics on the activities for the month. The whiteboards in Miss Hoy’s and Ms. Yacono’s classrooms will also summarize their weekly activities. Other topics for the month are: Daylight Saving Time (Sunday, March 10th - spring ahead one hour), St. Patrick’s Day (Sunday, March 17th) and Poison Prevention Week (March 17 - 23).
Any family that has not registered for our 2019-20 school year should do so now to secure enrollment for this fall. Without the registration, we cannot guarantee a spot for your child(ren). We do have limited openings in some classes this fall. Remember that we offer a free week of tuition for any referrals that register.
On Tuesday, March 12th, JCDS will reschedule our Donuts with Dads, starting at 9:00am and finishing at 10:00am.

Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to come at a different time in the morning.
On Wednesday, March 20th at 8:30 am, CLS Photo Group will be at the school to take individual and class pictures. Please mark your calendars so your child(ren) will look their best. For those children not attending school on Wednesday, but want to have their picture taken, please see Larry Brown.

Many parents have provided JCDS with their email address to receive our monthly newsletter as well as their child’s classroom newsletter. Email has also been a wonderful way to share some of the pictures of the children we have taken. If you have not provided your email address, you may be missing out on important information and pictures. In the event you have misplaced your JCDS monthly newsletter, you can find it on our website. Log into www.jeffersonvillecds.com, find the Parents link, then click Newsletters. Do not forget to check our Facebook page for pictures.
An Irish Blessing
May you always have
A sunbeam to warm you
Good luck to charm you
And a sheltering angel so nothing can harm you
Laughter to cheer you
Faithful friends near you
And whenever you pray, heaven to hear you.
