Here’s the text of the letter from Jones Elementary School to parents. Thanks to loyal reader Marla for this:
Good evening parents!
This is Marsha Lipe, proud principal of Ira B. Jones Elementary School. As many of you know, President Obama will be addressing the school-age students of the United States on Tuesday, September 8th. The contents of the speech are scheduled for release on Monday, September 7th.
Asheville City Schools Central Services will be taping the speech. As a school, we will be airing the speech on Thursday, September 10th, in the school auditorium. This allows time for all staff to preview the speech prior to the broadcast.
If you do not wish for your child to view the speech – you are asked to contact your child’s classroom teacher before September 10th. Alternate activities will be available for those not participating in the media center. Thank you and have a great weekend.
