John Green Elementary is celebrating its 10th year anniversary by hosting a festival on Saturday, April 14 from 1-4pm.  We will have food tastings, Kona Ice, face painting, henna and balloon artists, a photo booth, entertainment, multicultural booths and fun activities for the entire family.  Feel free to come dressed up in your cultural heritage outfits to showcase our diversity. Come early to pick up your free commemorative giveaway, quantities are limited (one per family, please).

Show your gator pride by coloring and decorating the gator cutout sent home with your child http://www.johngreenpfc.org/GatorCutout.pdf. Your child will be able to place it on the wall banner found in the front office foyer this week leading up to our big celebration. Your child can also choose to bring their completed gator and place it on the wall banner in the MPR the day of the celebration. This will showcase an eye catching display of John Green’s family-like community, bountiful diversity and our children’s talented excellence.

To make this event a success, we need volunteers for the planning committee and day of the event.  Please sign up at this http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c49a9ad28a0fc1-jges.  Thanks for your support!

2018-2019 School School Supply Drive

For the upcoming 2018-19 school year, the PFC will again bulk order school supplies for the classrooms and is asking for a $30 donation for each student.  See our flyer at http://www.johngreenpfc.org/SchoolSupplyDrive.pdf

Some of you may be curious and questioning why are we running the School Supply Drive so early this year? After speaking with the teachers and staff, we concluded that it would be helpful and beneficial to put in the order early. We are hoping to get the supplies in by May and have it organized before the end of this school year. We need your help in order to make this happen!!

If you can please make your donation before April 23rd; it would be greatly appreciated. Of course any donation after April 23rd will also be accepted.

Here is the link to donate

HELPFUL TIPS

Student safety is of the utmost importance. During the first week of school there is more traffic than normal. Please take special care when dropping off or picking up your student. Parking/Drop Off Area Reminders: Park your car in appropriately marked areas only. There are limited Visitor spots in the parking lot. Please park along Antone or Bridgepointe. The driveway in front of the school is for drop off and pick up only. Please do not leave your car unattended when dropping off or picking up your student. To drop off or pick up in the loading areas, your car should be against the curb. It is unsafe to load or unload away from the curb. Please drop your student off at the front of the school only.

A Note from The Principal, Dr.Lorianne R. Ventura.

DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

Do you know what a digital tattoo is?  Do you know how to recognize and report cyberbullying?  How can you make learning about digital citizenship fun for your kids?  Dublin Unified has created one-stop shopping for teachers, students, and parents/guardians on the topic of Digital Citizenship, follow this link for more info: https://www.dublin.k12.ca.us/Page/10380

A FEW SAFETY REMINDERS

Morning drop off and afternoon pick up are busy at John Green. With over 900 students trying to get to school at the same time the streets are packed with cars, bicyclists and pedestrians.  As winter is approaching bad weather only makes this process more difficult and potentially dangerous.  Please remember the following simple tips and together we can help keep our children safe:
 
1. Drive slowly and watch for pedestrians and bicyclists.
2. Cross the street at a crosswalk.  Crossing in the middle of the road is dangerous and makes it hard for cars to see you. While it is faster to simply cross the street, doing so comes at a great risk. Further, we want to model appropriate behavior for our students so they can make responsible choices when they are older.
3. Always wear your helmet while you are riding your bike, scooter, or skateboard.
4. Put your cell phone away.  Whether you are driving or walking your cell phone is a distraction, and even a quick glance at your phone can be dangerous.
5. Be patient and leave a little extra time to get to school.  When we rush we are more likely to make a mistake or not see everything that is going on around us.
