Keeping you up-to-date!
Hello JAM Families!
Hope your summers have been great. We are excited to get started with JAM and are looking forward to seeing you and your students very soon! We have had some big changes over the summer, so please read carefully and be sure to mark down the dates and times included in this newsletter.
JAM's Start Date is Monday, September 17th. 3:15-5:30pm at our new location, the building formerly known as the Senator's House.
Registration Forms Are Due Thursday, September 13th. All students, both new and returning, are required to register. Forms may be filled out online on our website, or hardcopy forms may be turned into your school's front desk.
Parent Orientation is Sunday, September 16th. 5:00-6:00pm It is important that all families attend due to the big changes we have this semester. Our location is new, and you will want to see the facility and understand how pickup will work. Orientation will be held at our new facility.
You may have already heard the news, but we are thrilled to announce that Alleghany JAM has it's very own home: the building formerly known as the Senator's House adjacent Sparta Elementary School! Having our own location will offer a much improved learning environment, as well as offering the program the freedom to grow and develop in ways not possible while using the school's facility. There will be no change in busing for Piney and Glade students, and SES students will be walked over from school by a JAM staff member at the end of the school day. Classes will continue to be every Mon & Thurs 3:15-5:30pm.
After a long day at school, most students are hungry and in need of a boost to be ready and excited for continued activities. The after school snack program in the school system made a big difference in this area. Due to the absence this year of the after school snack program, JAM will be providing snacks for our students before classes. In order to make this available for all students in the program, there will be slight increase of $10 in tuition. Thank you so much for your understanding, and helping us provide the best learning experience possible for your children! Our updated tuition is $130 normal rate and $70 reduced rate for the semester.
