International Walk to School Day was a HUGE success!!!
Thank you all JFS families who joined our Walk to School celebrations on Wednesday October 7th! Kids and adults alike LOVED it! The PTA acknowledges the tremendous support of the local community members: San Jose Fire Department Station 24 personnel for showing up with a fire truck to say hello to students. San Jose Police Department for working at the main intersections around JFS, and New Seasons Market for providing refreshments to students and parents. Thank you to parent volunteers Sterling Larnerd, Bobi Thai, Rita Patel, Sulu Pai, Pari Pham, Vanessa Retuta, Sonia Fanelli for making this event happen, and special thanks to our co-chairs of the events, Karen Wong and Usha Kalahasti! Thank you also to the wonderful teachers and staff at JFS for supporting and cheering on the students as they walked to school. A special thanks to Ms. Ortega and Ms. Kathy Casquinha for all their help with this event!
