Please Join Us For Our next PTO Meeting on Monday, November 12 from 7 to 8:30pm in the Media Center!

Our general meetings are open to the entire Julian population - if you have a child at Julian, or if you teach at Julian, you are already a PTO member!  We will be hearing from Edward Redd about the great work that YEMBA is doing with their after school mentoring program. And Jennifer DeBruin, Julian's IB Coordinator, will be presenting and answering your questions about the International Baccalaureate program. 

Thanks to All the Volunteers Who Organized, Set-up and Ran Julian's Bookfair During Conferences.

 Special thanks to Suzanne Drews and Amy Werthmann for co-chairing this important fundraiser.  We still need to appoint new co-chairs for next year's Bookfair which benefits Julian's Media Center, which in turn affects student's reading and literacy.  If interested, please contact Jamie Winchell, our school's librarian with questions and/or set up a visit to the media center.
