Parents as Ambassadors

Our families are our star recruiters! Word-of-mouth between parents is the best way to promote JCDS.  Learn to share your JCDS stories and about our “basket of language.”

​Parent Association Meetings will be held regularly, dates and locations to be announced.    

There are so many ways to support our school!

We've sold chocolate, coffee, wrapping paper, lemonade, and 3D printed items.  Maybe you have the next great idea to support JCDS!
