Looking for Classroom Reps!

Good Morning Rocket Families! Do you want to get involved with your child's class? Have you been wondering how to participate more in the John Rex community? Being a PTA Class Rep is a great way to achieve both of these goals! And you're in luck, because there are still a few classes in need of PTA Class Reps. We need you!

This is an easy way to support your child's classroom and John Rex with a minimal time commitment. The major responsibility of class reps is to help coordinate the three classroom parties each year (Winter, Valentine and End of Year). Please contact Moriah Guild at earthseaskysong@Hotmail.com or Kimberly Walters at KimberlyErin21@gmail.com if you can answer this call!

We are looking for 2 reps for each class and still need one or more for the following classrooms:
K - George
K - Buchanan
K - Stephenson
K - Watterson
1 - Cundiff
2 - Lawson
2 - Morgan
2 - Minor
3 - Hays
3 - Lunn
4 - Liles

JRCS-owned businesses, Give Back events

As the PTA looks for fun ways to meet fundraising goals, the Give Back committee would also like to take this opportunity to highlight our JRCS family business owners!

If you own a store front or restaurant, or if you have a business that provides goods or services, and you would like to look into participating in a Give Back to JRCS event, please contact Jamie Winteroth via Facebook or at jamiewinteroth@yahoo.com! Thank you!
