  • Courtyard Named in Honor of Teacher Jackie Schulte - 40 Years at JWS!

    This year’s auction featured a special tribute to Jackie Schulte, our beloved teacher of the preschool extended day program, honoring her 40 years of service to the JWS Community.  As a special acknowledgement of her many years of dedication to our school we are thrilled to announce that the newly renovated back courtyard will be named “Jackie’s Garden”, which will be incorporated into a custom made trellis made by a local artist.  Thank you, Jackie for all that you have shared with our children, families, and friends over the past years!

    The back courtyard will be rennovated over the summer and converted into a nature-inspired outdoor classroom for all of the classrooms to access and enjoy.  We look forward to unveiling the new space in the fall of 2014.
