    Whitehall kindergarten orientation is scheduled for Aug. 27-29 this year with the actual first day of class on Tuesday, Sept. 2.
    In an effort to make the transition into kindergarten more comfortable for parents and students, the orientation will provide parents, students and teachers the opportunity to get acquainted with one another on an individual basis as well as become more familiar with the school facilities and daily routines.
    Kindergarten teachers have invited individual families to take part in this orientation during a scheduled visit on Aug. 27, 28 or 29. Please call the elementary office for more information.

Don’t forget to pick up JVCF grant applications
    Jefferson Valley Community Foundation members are reminding local nonprofits and tax-exempt government entities that grant applications will be due Sept. 23 this year, and grant awards will be made on Oct. 17 at the second annual Community Celebration event in the Whitehall Community Center.
    Grant applications and guidelines are available at the Madison-Jefferson Extension office, Corner Store and the Whitehall Ledger.
JVCF has awarded over $68,000 in grants since 2001 to 29 different charities.
    This year’s grant awards will run between $200 and $2,500. They must be used within the Whitehall school district. JVCF board members will review applications and choose award recipients.
    This year’s applicants will be required to provide a 20 percent cash match if they receive grants. So, for example, if a nonprofit is awarded $200, it must provide $40 in matching funds.
    Application packages must be received by 4 p.m. on Sept. 23. Six copies of the package must be delivered to the Madison-Jefferson Extension office at 309 East Legion Avenue in Whitehall or mailed to JVCF, PO Box 144, Whitehall, MT 59759.
