WELCOME to 2017-18 school year!
Welcome to Jackson Preschool! I am so excited to begin another school year. I will update our weekly agenda on Mondays and send a copy home with students on Tuesdays so you will know what is planned for the week. Be sure to note any special announcements to stay informed.
Please be aware of delays and cancellations. You may access text alerts through the SCSC webpage under News links: Sign up for weather text alert at this web address:http://www.scsc.k12.in.us/index.php?option=com_docman&task=doc_download&gid=221&Itemid=5
You will receive text alerts when there are delays or closings.
With the snow days, we will attend the make-up days on Friday, March 30, Friday, April 27 and the last student day is now Friday, May 25. The 2 other days will be made up on Mondays, so our students will not attend.
Thanks for all the Valentine treats! We had a great party!
This week we will learn about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Happy Presidents' Day!
Tuesday, February 20 we will have our monthly fire, tornado and lockdown drills.
Friday, February 23 at 9:45 Jackson School will have a ISTEP Pep Session to encourage our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders who will be taking the ISTEP test beginning next week.
We have begun our Book-It program. We set a goal of a number of books to read each month from October to March. If we reach that goal, each student will receive a coupon for a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! Our goal for February goal is 48 books!
Bucket Fillers will be sent home at the end of each month. Be sure to congratulate your child if they earned one! Bucket Fillers is a school-wide character development program we use at Jackson. When students are following rules, being helpful, being respectful, they can earn a bucket filler certificate. One name will be drawn at the end of each month in the morning and one in the afternoon class. Those students will receive a trip to the treasure box, which has small treats such as candy, toys, bubbles, etc. Congratulations to Viviann and Max our January Bucket Filler Winners!
Happy 4th birthday to Mackenzie in Miss Kelsey's class on Saturday, February 24.
