Save your juice pouches. Collection boxes are in classrooms and the cafeteria at Jane Ryan. Please remove straws. To date, Jane Ryan has collected 20,580 juice pouches and earned a small amount for each pouch turned in.

Don’t forget to sign up for Stop and Shop A+ Bonus Bucks. Tell grandparents, uncles, aunts, etc. to link their cards to our school. Log on to stopandshop.com/aplus to register online or dial 1-877-275-2758 to register your card over the phone. Our Jane Ryan ID # is 06186.

The Jane Ryan Book Drive continues. The collection box for gently used or new books will remain in front of the media center. Any questions, contact Mrs. Beccaria.

The annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon hosted by the PTA Hospitality committee is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 20. Volunteers are needed to cook, bake or purchase what is needed for the luncheon. No time to cook or shop? You can send in a monetary donation (checks payable to Jane Ryan PTA). We are also in need of volunteers to help with set up and clean up. See the volunteer link http://pta.ivolunteer.com/jr2013fallstaffluncheon and sign up for what you would like to bring, or for a shift to volunteer. Any questions, contact Diana Inesta. All monetary donations can be sent in an envelope marked “PTA Hospitality Committee.”
