For the month of April, Jane Ryan will be donating its juice pouch earnings to the children, staff and families of Sandy Hook Elementary School. They recently joined the Terra Cycle recycling program that was supported and encouraged by the school’s former principal. Please recruit everyone you know to support this special pouch collection. A box will be placed outside the school by the entrance so non-JR people can donate pouches. Contact Kristen Beccaria with any questions or concerns.

Jane Ryan Garden members will meet on Wednesday, April 24, in the cafeteria at 6 p.m. Plant seeds and watch our own mini movie. Contact Jane Fleischner with questions.

Clean Up Day will be on Sunday, May 5 from 1-5 p.m. Refreshments and snacks will be provided. The group will also be painting the stone markers for each plot. If you are unable to make the clean up, please make a point to get to your plot and spread some mulch prior to the PTA Mother’s Day Plant Sale. Mulch order forms have been sent to families. Contact Megan Watson with questions.

Teacher Appreciation Week at Jane Ryan will be from May 6-10. The PTA needs volunteers to cook, bake, or shop for a raffle prize. No time to shop or cook? Monetary donations can be sent to the school in an envelope marked PTA/TAW. Checks should be made payable to Jane Ryan PTA. Any questions or for more information, contact Joan Rondano.
