"No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted”-Aesop 

Hello Jewel Parents and Caregivers,

I hope you all enjoyed the extra day off this past weekend.  Our teachers and other professionals were busy sharpening our tools so that we can better serve the needs of our learners.  Our school family is making great progress in meeting expectations in the classroom and outside of the classroom.  Thank you for your continued support in these areas.

What’s New

  • School is closed on January 16, 2023, for the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and his efforts to ensure liberty, justice, and equity is available to all of us.

  • We will have a Peacemaker Assembly on January 20, 2023 to honor selected students in each grade level.  Congratulations to all of the honored students!  

Important Reminders:

  • There is no supervision for students being dropped off to school before the teacher start time at 8:40 AM.  If you arrive before that time with your child you must remain with them until teachers are on duty.  Dropping students off before 8:40 AM and leaving them unattended on school grounds places your student in a situation where there is no adult available or responsible for being sure they are monitored.

  • If you want to avoid the congestion in the school lot, you may park on the street along the walkway connected to the school or on any of the adjacent streets.  There are crossing guards on duty to assist you and your child with crossing onto the property safely.

  • Student parties are not hosted in school.  Treat bags and other party items will be passed out to students at the end of the school day.

  • Willingboro School District has a uniform dress code. All students are required to adhere to the policy.  This is not a Principal Ash rule.  This is a board-approved mandate that is enforced by all teachers and staff at WRJ, including Principal Ash.  If you are concerned about your child being cold please be sure that they wear a long sleeve shirt underneath the uniform shirt.  If you need more uniform attire, please contact Ms. Bennett  (gbennett@wboe.net).  

  • Please be reminded that uniform violations are a Code of Conduct violation and may be responded to with board-approved disciplinary actions, including but not limited to withdrawal of privileges, such as participation in extracurricular activities, recess and field trips) 

  • You may find the Uniform Dress code on our District Website  or click this link2021-2022 DRESS CODE: https://5il.co/vxpy .  There have been no changes since the update in 2021.

  • Hoodies are not are part of the dress code and should be removed when the student enters the classroom.
