Jordan/Jackson News You Can Use
July 31, 2023
I hope you are enjoying your summer! I would like to officially welcome those of you who are new to the Jordan/Jackson Elementary School. We are excited to welcome you and your child(ren) to our fun and welcoming school! To all of our returning families, we look forward to seeing you all again this upcoming school year.
Over the coming weeks, you will continue to receive this family newsletter. We hope that you not only find it informative, but we hope to give you a glimpse into some of the engaging activities and enriching student work that takes place on a daily basis.
In the meantime, here are a few notes/reminders:
We do not require students to purchase specific school supplies. We have all the basic supplies that students will need for the upcoming school year. However, we know that students and families will have individual preferences and you are welcome to send your student to school with whatever supplies work best for them.
Classroom placement notifications will be sent to all families across the district, later in August (exact date to follow), prior to the District Open House (8/31).
See the sections below for important dates, some activities from the end of last school year, the Third-Grade Transition Presentation & Video and more.
