(Sunday - June 9th, 2019, 9.30 AM)


Jai Jinendra!

Dear JCNC Community Members and Parents, 

On Sunday, June 9th, we are planning to celebrate the JCNC Shala Graduation day.

During this event, students will receive their year-end report card from their teachers. It is also an opportunity for Students and Parents to appreciate ("Bahuman") teachers and volunteers who have helped the kids throughout the year in their journey of acquiring knowledge of Jain dharma, Indian culture, and values. 

We will have an elaborate ceremony, where we acknowledge not just the achievements of the students but also the role of teachers and Volunteers who have worked tirelessly in imparting knowledge. 

 Following is the Schedule for Graduation Day: 

  • 9:30 am to 9:45 am - Report card collection from teachers for both Jain and Language Shala. Please note: report card distribution classrooms will be different than the regular classes. Please look for Class Room assignments on Notice Board for the location where students will collect their report cards and meet the teachers.
  • 9:45 am - Gathering in Auditorium
  • 10:00 am - 12:00 - Teachers and Volunteers' Bahuman, PVSA Volunteers Recognition.
  • 12.00 pm to 2.00 pm – * Fun Fair * Games* Fabulous Lunch *

Our (Guru's) Teachers have a great influencing role in the life of the students and lay the foundation in the early years of our student’s lives. Please join us for Teachers Bahuman (recognition). 

PVSA (President’s Volunteers Service Awards) volunteers have within the past few years become the backbone of many of our JCNC activities. PVSA volunteers are at the forefront of JCNC helping out in various activities at the temple from Preparing and Serving hundreds of meals at Temple Kitchen, helping in education projects, library digitization to social projects such as Clothing Drives, Feeding the Homeless and many more…. We will recognize the efforts and hard work of these young volunteers who have actively taken up a leadership role.

Volunteers: Our fabulous volunteer pool comprising of JCNC Volunteers, Shala Kitchen Leads, Food Committee, Technology, and Facilities Team, and various other volunteers have contributed in a big way to ensure Day to Day Shala operations are run smoothly. Food Committee and many Kitchen Leads have served thousands of delicious meals and treat throughout the year to Shala Students and Parents. We will recognize their efforts. 

Fun Fair: JCNC has been an awesome place for Students and Parents to come together and progress spiritually, make friends and build relationships. Graduation Day Fun Fair is all about friends having fun together at Temple. We will have multiple Stalls with games, prizes and give away. Students have been working hard and studying all year long and Graduation Day is planned as a Fun Day.

 We are looking for volunteers to help organize games and run them at the Stalls. Please review the spreadsheet below and signup for game stalls you can lead. In addition, if you have other games/ideas please feel free to add to the spreadsheet and sign up as volunteers. For games, JCNC policies need to be followed and preapproved by the Education team.

Special Project Stalls: We will have tables set up for Shala Students to Display their Shala Projects. Projects can be in areas of Jainism, Veganism, or other Social awareness projects such as Recycling, Environmentalism, Minimalism, “Did you Know… “ Projects, (for example Did you know… Gelatin is produced from animal bones), etc. Please sign up in the spreadsheet above and add your name, description of the projects. During Shala, Graduation day plan to be at your table and come prepared to demonstrate or answer questions that people may have on your projects. Let us know if you have any special requirements for display otherwise assume Tables will be provided.
