Principal's Message

October 31, 2014   

Dear Johnson Families,

I hope everyone enjoyed the parade today. All of the students looked fantastic in their costumes and had a great time during their classroom celebrations. This past week we conducted a bus evacuation drill for the students.  We also distributed the lockdown magnets the PTO purchased for the school so the teachers can keep their door locked at all times.

The PTO will be hosting Family Bingo Night on Friday, November 14th. There will be two sessions, the first one beginning at 6PM. This year the theme will be football. Everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite team apparel. Please go to the Johnson Backpack to print out and complete the Family Bingo Night flyer to reserve your preferred session. Seating for this event is on a first come, first serve basis. This night is always a lot of fun, so I hope to see you there.

6th Annual Children’s Theatre Day on Saturday, Nov. 15th
