Hill Historical Society and JDBS Work on "OUR"Story
"OUR"Story is the opportunity for JDBS students to learn about the history of Hill. More importantly, since it is "OUR"Story it is an opportunity for JDBS students to add their story to the history of Hill. The Hill Historical Society hosted an assembly on October 8 where they presented the students with their own "OUR"Story history books. Please take a moment to look at the book with your student(s). Lastly, a sincere thank you to the Hill Historical Society for all of their hard work on this project. The volunteers of the Hill Historical Society have spent many hours working to create a book for each student and a teacher's edition for each teacher here at JDBS. Their efforts are very much appreciated!

On behalf of the entire JDBS Community...a Thank You
It is important for everyone to know all of the things that the PTO has done for the students of JDBS over the 2015-2016 school year. A special thanks to the members of the PTO Scott and Tara Valliere, Joe and Niki Mahoney, Paula McDonough and Kim Dickison. The hard work, time and efforts of all of these folks is appreciated beyond measure. Their efforts have enabled many wonderful things to happen at JDBS. Students were able to learn to ski or snow board through scholarships provided by the PTO. Costs of field trips were reduced as PTO helped to cover transportation expenses. Most importantly, the events sponsored by the PTO, the Family Movie Night, the Family Dance Night and the Pancake Breakfast with Easter Egg Hunt help to create an environment where students feel connected to their school. It is this connection that in part enables the students of JDBS to be successful. When students feel connected to their school they experience greater academic success and are more willing to give their very best to learn on a daily basis. For that the faculty and staff is very grateful. Please see the list below to read about all of the initiatives that the PTO has worked on this year.
September - The JDBS PTO Kids Carnival
The PTO also established a JDBS PTO Facebook page, a JDBS PTO email account, enacted new fundraisers such as the Planet Aid donation bin and the Yankee Candle fundraiser. Again, on behalf of the JDBS school community please know that we thank you for your hard work and dedication to all of the students of JDBS.
PTO is collecting UPC labels, cell phones and ink cartridges as a fundraiser. Please bring in empty ink cartridges and unused cell phones. There is a collection box for these items in the lobby of the school.
