CJL PTA Playground Party - The End of a Rainbow
Good morning, Tonight we will have the Playground Party rain or shine 5:30-7pm. If it stops raining, we have folks ready to arrive early to dry off the playground structures. If it continues to rain we have reserved our gymnasium tonight so we’ll move the event indoors. Reminder: This Sunday is our campus cleanup 8-10am. Please bring your own work gloves, rakes, shovels, and outdoor brooms. During this event, people who pre-ordered cornstalks will be coming to pick them up as well. Have fun!

Good morning, Just a reminder CJL students and staff wear red (representing Sanford Spartans) on Fridays to show our school spirit. The class in each grade level who has the most school spirit wins a trophy to display proudly for the week! Also, please note that every Friday, staff have the option to participate in our “Sunshine Fund” and those who do are allowed to wear jeans in exchange. The money collected from staff is used to do good for others, spreading sunshine in our school. Have a happy Friday and great weekend!

CJL Staff SY 22-23
Good morning, We welcome our kindergarteners today. Remember to tag your child’s backpack with CJL, student and teacher name, parent name, address, and phone number. We’ll provide an official tag the first day. Reminder: Drop off is between 8:00-8:20am. Please use visitor parking or the uppermost parking lot and stay on crosswalks. Parents will be staying outside and we’ll have supervision as soon as your kindergartener enters the building. We have supervision helping students as they arrive off the busses as well. Breakfast and lunch are free and we provide a free healthy snack. Please send your kindergartener with a change of clothes, a water bottle, and one healthy snack each day. We have two recesses each day, one is longer than the other, so please watch the forecast each morning. For this time of year, layers are best. Our kindergarten playground tends to be windy and a little cooler than the back playground. Sneakers are always best. The kindergarteners will only have lunch and recess with other kindergarteners. The same is true for children in other grades as well. Parent pick-up parking is the same as in the morning. The only difference is that in the morning you’ll drop off at the main doors and in the afternoon you’ll pick up from door #2. Please bring ID in the afternoon and arrive at 3:00. See you soon!

Good evening CJL Families and Staff, Thank you to all of our parents, students, and staff for a very successful first day of school today. We saw lots of smiles and fun relationship building activities. Tuesday: With a high of 91 degrees tomorrow, staff have been permitted to wear shorts to work. We have water bottle refilling stations available at school. Tuesday is the last day for kindergarten and Pre-K screening appointments. Wednesday: Welcome kindergarteners (drop off between 8:00-8:20am, preferably between 8:10-8:20, if possible). Friday: Every Friday, starting this week, we wear red to school. The class wearing the most red per grade level wins a trophy for the week for showing school spirit. If you don't own red, anything with a Sanford Spartans Logo or Carl J. Lamb School Logo also counts. Let's go, CJL! Sept. 6th: Welcome Pre-K Students (drop off between 8:00-8:20am, preferably between 8:10-8:20, if possible). Sept. 7th: First Early Release Day (students dismissed at 2pm - one hour early every Wednesday all year, starting 9/7/22. Thanks again, for a fantastic first day with grades 1-4.

Good morning CJL Families, We’re looking forward to welcoming our families to our Sneak-a-Peek (Open House) tonight. Our doors open to CJL Families at 5:00pm and close at 6:30pm, today, Thursday, August 25th. At Sneak-a-Peak, we hope you’ll take the time to inform us of how your child will be getting to and from school. Additionally and equally as important, we need every family to also complete a confidential Free and Reduced Lunch form regardless of socioeconomic status and despite the fact that meals are free for everyone this year. The information obtained from these confidential forms is directly correlated to the amount of funding we receive for our fresh fruit and veggie program at snack time and Title I reading and math programs for students in need. Without them, we could lose funding and these programs. Free and Reduced Lunch Forms may be found on the website to be completed online. There will also be tables in the lobby at Open House for these agenda items. Another copy will be included in the students’ first day paperwork. Please help us to retain our funding and these necessary programs that help so many of Sanford’s students by passing in a completed Free and Reduced Lunch form to your child’s teacher asap. August 29th = 1st day for Gr1-4 August 31st = 1st day for GrK September 6th = 1st day for Pre-K Reminders: The earliest students are permitted to be dropped off due to supervision availability is 8:00am, but 8:10-8:20 is preferable. The bell rings at 8:25 for classes to begin. Pick up is at 3pm except for on early release days (ERDs). ERDs begin on Wednesday, September 7th and are held every Wednesday after that. Dismissal is at 2:00 on ERDs. I wanted to say a special thank you to CJL parents, Suzanne (and daughter, Brooke) Payeur and Kerry Levesque, for doing such a nice job on our lobby bulletin boards! They look amazing! Also, thank you to their children, Grant Payeur and Luke Levesque for pulling all of the weeds out of the sandbox on the kindergarten playground. They did professional level work and we really appreciate the help! Thank you! See you tomorrow at Sneak-a-Peek! Welcome back to our students, staff, and families! Sherri Baron CJL Principal

Student Transportation: The bus company will post pick up times the week prior to school starting on the district website. If you have any questions regarding your pick up times or locations, please contact Ledgemere Transportation at 324-4888 directly. Please note that pick-up and drop-off times are approximations since we are adding Pre-K students to the routes. The first few weeks are when the bus drivers are finalizing their run times and adjusting to community traffic. It is good practice to have your child at the bus stop 5-10 minutes before pick-up time to avoid missing the bus. *We are experiencing a significant driver and monitor shortage as we begin the year. Families should prepare in the event transportation is out of service. Thank you!
