My daughter has attended PJ since she was 3, she is now in the 3rd grade. I plan on keeping her enrolled until she reaches the final grade they offer. All the teachers are wonderful! She has a full academic schedule and has music, art, and Spanish class time, as well. I am very pleased with her success at PJ. Recently, the children were able to participate in the National Spelling Bee competition. The elementary children participate in a science fair in the winter and an art and writing fair in the spring. The school offers many "family nights" programs. I am very pleased with all this small school has to offer.

And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
