Welcome to

Volunteering
Powered by You--JSIS 5 Hour Pledge

We ask that every family donate at least 5 volunteer hours per year to support our school. If every family participates we can put on community events, create new programs and sustain current programs.

Volunteer Application. Please fill out and bring to the Main Office.

Background Check (WATCH) form
. Please fill out and bring it and your driver's license to the Main Office.

Volunteer Handbook. You only need to print the "Volunteer Agreement" (page 18-19) and bring that into the Main Office.

Adult Sexual Misconduct Prevention Video. When the quiz is completed, the volunteer is able to print a certificate that states they completed the training and bring it into the School's Main Office.

All SPS Volunteer Information can be found here.

Welcome Incoming Kindergarteners!

Kindergarten Orientation Night
We are so excited to see all of you for Kindergarten Orientation this week! If you have any further questions about K orientation, please do not hesitate to call the office at 206-252-6080.

Agenda:
5:30pm Information booths regarding programs at JSIS
6:00pm Introductions and opening of school information (*Adults only, please. Childcare will be provided by PTSA volunteers.)
6:30pm Visit classrooms
7:15pm Time to go home

*Childcare will be for incoming JSIS kindergarten children ONLY. No siblings, please. It is imperative that children go to childcare during the teacher presentation from 6:00-6:30 because immersion teachers will be speaking in English at this time. Our immersion teachers do not speak English in front of the children in order to facilitate acquisition of the immersion language.

If you cannot attend the K orientation this Thursday, please let our office manager, Ms. Shannon, know sbfitzwaterr@seattleschools.org. We hope to see you on Thursday!



School Supplies for 2014-15

In an effort to save parents time and money and enable our teachers to buy their preferred items at bulk rates, the JSIS PTSA provides parents with a bulk purchasing program for shared classroom supplies. There is a $40 classroom supply fee per student, which will cover the year's classroom supplies for all classes. Please note: individual teachers may request additional personal supplies, especially in the upper grades. This information will be available in August after teacher assignments are made. Partial and full scholarships will be available.

More details about the school supplies program and the payment process can be found here. Go to PayPal to make your payment now for the 2014-2015 school year. Still have questions? Contact parent volunteer Sloan.



Playground Repainting

It's time to repaint the playground, and possibly make some additional tweaks. Sign up to help between Monday, August 25th and Friday, August 29th and read more details. For more information, please contact Darla Rhodes. Thanks for helping create a much improved play surface for kids returning in September!!
