Dear Parents & Guardians:
On behalf of the James F. Doughty School, please accept my invitation to our Fifth Grade Parent Night. On Thursday, June 8th, from 6:00 to 7:00 PM, we will gather in the JFDS Auditorium to meet with parents and students about daily life at our school. I will discuss the academic expectations at JFDS. Mr. Moring, our Assistant Principal, will discuss the support services and activities available here at JFDS, while Mrs. O’Reilly, the School Counselor, will review the sixth grade academic program and provide some suggestions to help parents at the middle level. At the conclusion of the presentation, there will be an opportunity for parents to ask questions about the coming year.
Another event I want to make sure everyone is aware of is the Student Council Pancake Breakfast. On Saturday, June 10th, from 8:30 to 9:30, current JFDS Student Council members will be offering tours to fifth grade students and their parents. JFDS administrators will cook pancakes for families to enjoy as well.
I hope that both you and your child can join us for these two events and that we can answer all of your questions about the transition to sixth grade. If I can help you in any way, please feel free to call the school office at 941-6220.
