Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to learn”

The big event next week is cake decorating after school on Thursday, March 27. Our postponed potluck, dancing and cake walk is the next night (Friday). This is a free event and open to the public. Find as many fun loving hungry people as you can. We would like to make this a fun event for all.

Skiing is still happening because unfortunately it keeps snowing and the cold just will not let up. Perhaps instead of all school meeting on Wednesday's we will do a sun dance and hope for melting snow.

Jamaica School Club Penny Sale, Saturday March 29, 2014Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the event begins at 6:30 p.m. For those who have never attended a Penny-Sale, it is basically a giant, three segment raffle. The event is organized into three segments, with the goal of offering 100 prizes per segment. At the beginning of each segment, raffle tickets are sold for that particular segment. The cost of raffle tickets is $1.00 each, or 6 for $5.00 (purchase as many as you wish). When the event starts, the rules are simple. If a ticket is drawn that matches a ticket number you hold, you win that prize. The ticket is then returned to the ticket drum, where it could potentially be drawn many more times. Your $1.00 ticket affords you the opportunity to win 100 prizes. That is $0.01 per chance, and the origination of the term Penny-Sale. The event continues until all 100 prizes in the segment are awarded. This is followed by an intermission, during which you may purchase tickets for the next segment, grab a bite to eat at the concessions stand, etc. Once the second segment begins, the rules are the same. If your ticket number is drawn, you win. The event continues until all three segments of prizes have been awarded. The final activity of the event is to draw the winner of the 50/50 Raffle. These tickets are sold during the event, as well as the weeks leading up to it. This 50/50 raffle is one of the largest in the entire state. Don’t miss out! Fun for the entire family!
