Turkey Trot

On Friday, November 21st at 1:15 p.m. JP pupils and staff members (with the help of parent volunteers) will participate in a one mile run in honor of Thanksgiving.  The “entrance fee” for the run will be a minimum of 25 cans/boxes of food per class.  

JP will donate the collected items to the pantry at TASK (the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen).  There are prizes, such as an extra recess or a surprise treat, to the three classes who collect the most items.  


In addition – Before the Turkey Trot begins, each grade level or class will show its “Turkey Trot Spirit” by participating in a short skit or rendition of a song.  Do you hear them practicing???  This is really fun for the kids and parents alike.  Please come and watch these fun skits!  Additionally, if you are able to lend a hand, please sign up at the Sign-up Genius  website:

“In Our Garden” Newsletter

Next time you need to strike up a conversation with you favorite JP student, ask them about Plant Galls, Burrowing Caterpillars or which students at school are “full of beans!” Those are just some of the exciting topics your student is enjoying (and learning) when they participate in the JP Garden with our fantastic garden educator Deb Gries.

Check out the “In Our Garden” newsletter for more information on these and other exciting activities they are doing each week. And thank you for your JP annual dues donations which makes this, and many other JP Residency program possible!
