Donations needed for our Counseling Center
Jerabek is fortunate to have a full-time counselor, Silvia Henley. In addition, we have the additional support of Catherine Bennett on Fridays. We are creating a multi-dimensional counseling center focused on supporting our students UTK-Grade 5.
We are currently in need of materials for the counseling center. The following materials will support our non-directive play emphasis that will allow our students to process and express thoughts and feelings that they can’t put into words.
Materials needed include (cleaned and disinfected):
- Make-believe materials (hats, dress up, etc.)
- Figurines, dolls, and stuffed animals
- Painting, drawing, or sculpting materials
- Board games, card games, puzzles, etc.
- Sand & water table, doll house/environmental stations, sensory toys
- Indoor sport games (ie. indoor basketball hoop)
We appreciate any and all support!
Family Faculty Organization of Jerabek Elementary School
The Family Faculty Organization of Jerabek Elementary School, or FFO, is an organization similar to a PTA, made up of parents, community members, and staff who work together to provide students with added enrichment to their existing curriculum. Everyone who has a child at Jerabek is automatically a member of the FFO.
The FFO bridges the annual gap on hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding that is not given to school, teachers, and families due to service area’s median incomes. 97 cents of every dollar donated to the FFO goes directly back into programs and services for Jerabek Elementary families.
Jerabek will work closely with the FFO to streamline & align communications and increase accessibility. Our weekly newsletter will always include the button below, Jerabek FFO Newsletter, for a direct link to current FFO information.
