We Love Our Jo Kelly School Family Members!
Over the last year Jo Kelly School families have had opportunities to volunteer or just enjoy the day with their child. We continue to have numerous volunteer opportunities and special events that families are welcome to participate in.
♥ Jo Kelly School Volunteers ⇒
Jo Kelly is lucky to have the BEST family volunteers in Fort Worth! Our volunteers help with field trips, help find services for our students and families, and help run the different activities that we have throughout the school year.
We would like to make an special shout out to Mr.Hardin. Mr.Hardin has taken it upon himself to maintain the beauty and integrity of the ⇐ The Alison Hardin Playground and Eli Bradford Garden of Angels each month for years and years. Thank You Mr. Hardin!
Our Family Involvement Is Priceless!
In September of this year we had Grandparents day! Parents and grandparents came! We expect a bigger turnout next year too!
In October we had The Fall Festival and many parents attended to spend time with their children.
The last Thursday of each November Jo Kelly School hosts The Family Feast with families bringing food and eating together! Families also did a Turkey Craft Project which was used for decoration.
As recently as two weeks ago in January we had many families join us on field trips! You can see the fun we all had in the following galleries:

Sea Quest ⇒
Jo Kelly School families are ALWAYS willing to help when needed and recently donated hand towels and washcloths.
The teachers and staff of Jo Kelly School are involved every day in communicating with families by writing in notebooks etc. These notes and correspondence go back and forth to alert to the specific needs of each child for each day. The students at Jo Kelly School are nonverbal so it is vital that teachers and care givers maintain this close communicative relationship.
In February our families have been invited to join us for The Valentine’s Day Dance on February 14th. Families are crafting together and making Valentine mailboxes ♥ with their child to be used during our Valentine Festivities . (⇐ Go See!)
Jo Kelly School families have also been invited to celebrate with us during The Annual Black History Program on February 21st. This event includes many staff and students participating and making our Black History Program fun and educational. You won't want to miss it! The gallery is pending, but go check out the nurse door!

Thank you to our Jo Kelly Families from the staff of Jo Kelly School!
