Winter Break!

Thanks JYJ parents for bringing in items for the snowman tree.  Over 50 JYJ children/families received items for the holiday thanks for your generous support!  The holiday spirit was alive and well at Joyner, celebrating the various cultural holidays throughout the world.  Our own beginning band even joined in providing various holiday tunes (Jingle Bells, Dradle, Dradle & King Wenceslas).  Have a safe and wonderful holiday, see you in 2012!
