Dance-athon – FRIDAY, APRIL 19

The Dance-athon is one of John English’s main fundraisers of the year.  Children were given pledge envelopes at the launch on March 28th, and are encouraged collect pledges from friends and family (for safety reasons, no soliciting strangers or door-to-door, please). Visit to submit music requests and make online pledges! Pledges are due next Wednesday April 17. Each grade will have a different period in the gym for the Dance-athon on April 19th.

The class that raises the most money per capita, will receive an all-expense paid party! To reach our goal of $7000.00, we challenge each student to raise at least $25 for this event. The money will be used to support cultural presentations, in-class technology and the music and skating programs at John English. Our goal is 100% participation. Come join us dance, have fun and do something great for our school community!

Healthy Bites Lunch Program

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Our Healthy Bites lunch program depends on Parent Volunteers to run smoothly. The program has recently lost some volunteers and is consistently short-staffed.
Please consider volunteering for a three hour shift (9am – 12pm or 11am – 2pm  Monday through Thursday) once a week, every two weeks or even once a month.
Please contact to volunteer.
