Jydstrup Elementary Welcome Back

2014-2015 Staff Welcome Back Letter

Jydstrup Website (Redesigned)

We have redesigned a new website so that parents, teachers, and students can have access to current information.

WELCOME BACK 2014-2015

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer. We are very excited about this upcoming school year and we hope you are too. We are going to be kicking off the school year with the them of Hopes & Dreams. This is a theme we will revisit during the year as it applies to family engagement and student goal setting. When thinking about creating your bulletin boards for the beginning of the year keep in mind the theme. You can find resources at:

Setting up Classrooms

As many of you know ESY (Extended School Year) has been going on during the month of June and July. So starting August 1, many rooms will start getting shampooed and cleaned. The rooms which have not been used, are already done. Some of you had dropped off your teacher materials an put them in the PE room. If your classroom was not being used for ESY, then those materials were put into your classroom. However, if it was being used for ESY, then your materials now are in the MP room and will need to be moved. I have posted below a map that has which rooms have been cleaned or not thus far. The classrooms with the red symbol have not been cleaned yet.
