Nuts and Bolts

1. Sports/Field Day will be Monday, May 16th. There will be an adjusted schedule for specials and lunch, which will be a sack lunch in classrooms.

2. Open Enrollment Process

JCPS Open Enrollment period starts Friday, May 6, 2016 through end-of-day Monday, May 16, 2016. Beginning Friday, May 6, 2016, you must enroll online through the Jefferson City Public School District’s benefits system, Bswift, to make your 2016-2017 benefit elections:

  • Bswift site:
  • Username = firstname.lastname
  • Password = {you established a new password last spring during open enrollment} If you've forgotten your password, there is a Forgot-Password link on the page.

Employees may login to the open enrollment website as many times as they wish, and make changes at any time through the May 16 deadline. Instructions on how to enroll can be found on the JCPS Bswift enrollment website ( under Library.

3. Summer Professional Development opportunities are posted! Check out the ICLE curriculum launches in July for your respective grade level. This will provide a chance for grade level teachers to learn more about the essentials, the scope/sequence, units and assessments. This will also let teachers collaborate for a short time with grade level colleagues from across the district. Get signed up now!

Looking Forward

1. Still willing to have other help with the bookroom work to make it a more accessible and effective resource next year. Please let me know if you are willing!

2. If you are not under contract for additional days due to being in your first 3 years in the district, you will return on August 15th.

  • We are thinking Opening Session will take place on Monday the 15th.
  • The Elementary School Open Houses will be on Tuesday evening, August 16th, from 5:00- 7:00. (This is a change from recent years due to concerns with additional work to do after open house and avoiding this late night right before school starts.)
  • We will likely have 4-6 hours of focused PD around ICLE and behavior intervention and support.

I want you to have the information you need to plan effectively so you can have your classroom ready to go. I know you take pride in having a classroom that is welcoming to students and lets families know you are ready for a great year.

You make a difference!

I came across this on Facebook and thought is was PERFECT for this time of year. Teachers are tired and our students still need us, some more so now than ever.

Thank you for being a positive presence in the lives of our children, even when you are tired!
