Dear Solomon Family--

On the heels of our successful restaurant givebacks in February, we have some exciting plans for the rest of the year:

Please join us for an evening of game playing (board and card games) at Solomon on Friday, March 25, from 5:30-7:30pm. This is a no-cost event, just an opportunity to come together as a group. Your child can bring a game from home, play one of the school's games, or play with friends. All students, with the exception of our student volunteers for the event, must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the event.

Parents, you may have seen a bright pink flyer come home or it will this week. We are hosting our Walk Jog Roll-a-Thon t-shirt design contest with a Freaky Friday theme. Designs are due Monday, March 21st, and we look forward to seeing your students' creative ideas!

All students and staff will receive a free event t-shirt. If any parents or other family members would like to purchase a shirt, orders will be due by Monday, March 21st to be counted. Please print this form and send an envelope to school that says WJR TSHIRT ORDER 2022 and include your name, the students name and room number, the # of shirts you would like, the size and $6/shirt ordered. REMEMBER ALL STUDENTS AND STAFF WILL RECEIVE A FREE SHIRT THE DAY OF THE WJR, this is only for family members that would also like one.

We are looking for sponsors for our t-shirts to help cover the costs for all students and staff. If you have a company that would like to put their logo, please email for more information. Logos will go on the back of 400+ t-shirts - that is a lot of walking billboards! You can also use this form to send in and request more information. We look forward to seeing your logo on our shirts!

As we get closer to May 13th we will be looking for volunteers to help with our WJR. Mark your calendar and save the date and plan to come out for part or all of the day to help out - the more the merrier, it is so great to see the joy and smiles as the students come out to walk jog or roll around the school! We can't do it without having adults around the building to make sure all students are safe. Hope to see you out there!

We want your feedback on what the funds raised in WJR22 should be spent on at Solomon. Please respond to this brief survey by Monday, March 21.

Lastly, we are also looking for volunteers to help organize our amazing International Night. Tentatively, our event is planned for Friday, June 3. We need your help to make this annual event happen! If you are interested in helping in any way, please email us here.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to Jamie Kaplan at

Thank you! Looking forward to an amazing comeback of our WJR!
