Jane Ball Happenings

Week of September 22-September 26

Arrival and Dismissal


Thank you all for working hard to make the changes in the mornings for our arrival procedures. The goal is to improve transitions in the morning and improve use of instructional time. Just a little clarification, according to the student handbook class starts at 8:45. That means that students should be recorded as tardy if they are not in their seats by 8:45. We will give tardy slips at the office stating at 8:45, however you still need to mark students tardy regardless if they have a slip or not at 8:45.


Just a friendly reminder that ALL teachers should be escorting their students to the gym at dismissal. Teachers are required to guide their students to the proper location and help supervise until 3:25. If you have a conflict please let me know.

Curriculum Mapping Date changes! ( Important please note date Changes)

We will be beginning curriculum mapping this week with grade 3. If you are participating in mapping please be sure you have the correct paperwork filled out with Pam asap so she can get you a sub. We are combining the Math and ELA mapping sessions so representatives from both schools should attend both sessions.

Grade 3 Mapping Sept 23-24 at Jane Ball 8-3:20

Grade 4 Mapping Sept 30-Oct 1 at Lincoln 8-3:20

Grade 5 Mapping (THIS IS A CHANGE) Oct 8- Oct 9 at Lincoln 8-3:20

Please bring any existing scope and sequences you have, maps, or texts that you feel will be helpful to complete this work. We will start with Math first then move to ELA.
