JET BLAST NEWS
WEEK OF MAY 31st
A huge thank you and job well done to the Student Government class and ASB for a fun, well planned and enjoyable Unity Fair. The break-out sessions were fun, assembly entertaining, powderpuff game competitive and overall day was much needed. It’s great to have a day where we can appreciate the beauty that is Encinal.
Speaking of beauty, our new pools are full of water and have been so worth the wait. We are so excited to begin using them.
Congratulations to the 8th grade class (Class of 2020!). All students met their community service deadline by submitting all their hours in on time. Nice job! This week they will be presenting their 8th grade portfolios and have a trip to Great America scheduled for Friday. Speaking of Great America, permissions slips and payment are due by Wednesday, June 1st.
