Ringing In is a ceremony that takes place at the beginning of each school year. It is a way to celebrate the milestone of Kindergarten students entering elementary school. Ringing Out is a ceremony that takes place at the end of each school year. It is a way to celebrate the milestone of Fifth grade students graduating from elementary school. Students from across K-5, staff, and parents are invited to attend.
Many authors have visited with the students of JCS, in person and via Skype. This year alone, thanks to generous funding by our PTA, students were able to work with and learn from the following authors:
Rob Buyea, author of Because of Mr. Terupt Series.
Angela Cervantes, author of Gaby, Lost and Found.
Jon Rocco, author of Blackout and Blizzard.
Jennifer Tully, author of Halloween Moon.
& author Ted Scheu, the Poetry Guy has visited Julian Curtiss School "in residence" to work with every student on their writing over the course of a three day period.
The Ambassadors Club is a group of teacher-nominated students who represent JCS at various events. Members of the Ambassadors Club help new JC students acclimatize to their new school setting. They help direct guests on Grandparent's Day. If you see a smiling face greeting you in the hallway each morning, it is probably a JC Ambassador...but it's a very smiley place.
The Service Club works as a team to function as the student outreach arm of our school community. Student participants spend time at The Muse, the old-folks home here in Greenwich, write letters to Servicemen and women, raise money to aid world relief efforts, and encourage our school community to make a difference in the world around us.
