Jane Ryan School
The School Store will be open Thursday, April 7, 11:30 a.m.-1:15 p.m. Store bucks are available for purchase for $2.50 and $5 buck sheets. Since cupcakes and treats are no longer allowed, why not celebrate school birthdays and special occasions with store bucks. Bucks are available in $.50 and $1.00 increments and may be purchased for grades 1-5. The buck request form can be found on the Jane Ryan website, under the school newsletter – last page.

The School Store is looking for volunteers. If you want to volunteer with a minimal time commitment, the Store is for you. Help as little or as much as you choose and be delighted by our children as they shop for supplies and treasures! Contact Jen Kane if you’re interested in volunteering.

The Spring Book Fair is Thursday, April 7, just in time to stock up before Spring Break. This is the very popular Buy One, Get One free event. Parent volunteers will be needed to help students with their shopping. Keep an eye out for iVolunteer.

The All-School Clean Up will be on Saturday, April 23, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Please help us clean playgrounds and grade beds around Jane Ryan. Bring along your garden gloves and tools as we spruce up the place after a long winter. Look for an iVolunteer sign up for times and shifts soon. High school volunteer hours are available. Any questions, contact Megan Watson.
