Dear Janney Families,

I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing Spring Break!  It’s hard to believe that we are in the final eight weeks of the school year.  The next two months will go by quickly and will be filled with events and celebrations.  Please make sure that you are reading all communication from your child’s teacher carefully so that you don’t miss any important announcements.

As warm weather has returned, I want to offer a few housekeeping reminders.  Students who arrive early to school are welcome to play on the field or in other areas of our outdoor space, provided they are supervised by an adult.  We stop all games on the field at 8:30am to allow for a safe arrival and a prompt start to Jamboree.  Please also ensure that your child is wearing appropriate footwear each day; flip flops are not safe for outdoor play.

I look forward to seeing many of you at our Talent Show this Friday, April 26!  Please also note that we have rescheduled International Night for Wednesday, May 22.  Please read below for an announcement from the committee chairs.

Tonight’s newsletter contains a repeat call for parent volunteers to serve on the LSAT or the PTA Executive Board.

Enjoy your week!

Call for Volunteers: LSAT and PTA Executive Board
LSAT
The LSAT (Local School Advisory Team) advises the Principal on issues related to the Local School Plan: what is needed at the school, where we want to be as a school, whether we are there, and if not, how we should get there.  The LSAT meets monthly, with an extra meeting in early Spring during the DCPS budgeting process.
The Janney LSAT is composed of the Principal, six teachers, six parents, and, at times, a community representative. The LSAT supports the Principal’s implementation of the DCPS Teaching and Learning Framework by advising the Principal on matters related to teaching and learning, leadership, job embedded professional development, resources, safe and effective learning environments, and family and community engagement.
This year, we will select one parent and elected members serve a 2-year term.  Please email lsat@janneyschool.org with a short bio and rationale on why you want to serve on LSAT by COB Friday, May 3rd. Bios will appear in the May 7th newsletter.

PTA
The PTA is currently recruiting executive board members for next school year – one co-treasurer, one co-secretary, and a team of two co-vice presidents.  Want to learn more? Email pta@janneyschool.org or click here to read the PTA bylaws with position descriptions.


Warmly,
Alysia Lutz, Principal
