News from Mrs. Jorgenson
In May we will be finishing up our career lessons.
In kindergarten students will hear a story about different jobs in our community and identifying what they would like to be when they grow up.
In first grade, students will be learning about various jobs and will be playing a career riddle game.
In second grade, students will learn about which “good worker traits” they need to be successful in a job. Students will be making their own good worker traits tool chest.
In third grade, students will be using a computer program called “Paws in Jobland” to explore career options.
In fourth grade, students will be finishing up their career interest inventories. Please watch for the career booklets to come home in the first two weeks of May.
In fifth grade, students will be learning about how jobs are grouped into career clusters and will practice classifying jobs into clusters through a game called career pizza.
Child Supervision Guidelines
Many parents are unsure when students can stay home alone or provide care for their younger siblings if parents need to leave the house. Here are guidelines from Cass County to help. Have a safe and fun-filled summer!
The ultimate responsibility for the safety, care, well-being, and behavior of dependent children remains with the parent or caregiver, whether they are present to personally supervise them or not. Supervising your children is one of the most important things you can do for them.
The age of the child is not the only factor that should be considered when children are left alone. Other factors include the maturity of the child, emotional health factors, and the child's physical or cognitive limitations.
