AFTER CARE SIGN-UP FORM

The After Care rates are new for 2019-20. As we indicated several months ago, we have moved toward a system in which families are encouraged to sign up for different annual plans. Using After Care on a drop-in basis will be costlier.

The change will help us determine the number of students we will have and the number of staff members we will need in After Care each day. This is important as we begin to include 3-year-old and 4-year-old children. Supervision and staff-child ratios are state regulated when preschool-age children are included. 

Our plan is to have a separate After Care group of primary and preschool children. They'll have their own snack time and playground time. We'll tell you more about what's coming in the After Care program before the next school year starts.

Mrs. Jenkins - Summer Tutoring and Enrichment

Warmer temps are in the air which signals SUMMER is almost here. One of the considerations for parents over the summer is finding ways to keep the motivation for learning strong thereby not losing ground from what has been mastered over the school year. Sometimes it is tough to find ways to build the bridges between grade levels. One area of utmost importance is reading. It cuts through all areas of the curriculum. Summer reading work is assigned to SJB students to help keep those reading muscles strong. Mrs. Jenkins will be offering tutoring/enrichment sessions in reading and writing this summer. Please reach out to her at the following: judy.jenkins@sjbsilverspring.org if you would like to discuss summer tutoring/enrichment for your son/daughter.

Mrs. Castillo Available to Tutor Over Summer

Mrs. Castillo is available for summer tutoring and can meet with children in Grades 2-8 and focus on Math or Reading.  Please email her at: liz.castillo@sjbsilverspring.org to arrange a tutoring schedule for your child this summer.   She can work around your family's schedule and set up times that are convenient for you and your child.
