Characteristic of a Successful Learner (CSL): Self-Advocate

Bucket-Filling Trait: Confidence

It's a Marvelous Monday at JSE

We can see the finish line as we start our last full week of the 2015-2016 school year! We keep a steady pace, focused on reaching math fact goals, inspiring young author writings, and sharing favorite AR books.

Our school house applauds the academic achievement of our 3rd grade students and Kindergarten through 3rd grade teachers on our IREAD-3 spring assessment. We had a 98% passing rate with 10 perfect scores! Well done!

Congratulations to our 25 students with 100% perfect attendance! They meet up Wednesday with UCE's perfect attendance students for a movie and lunch field trip. Our students with 2nd semester perfect and exemplary attendance will enjoy ice-cream sundaes. Thank you for your commitment to daily attendance! Attendance rewards continue this summer at our JSE Library Program. Please see the flyer below. We look forward to seeing you there!

This week we also celebrate a year of learning with field day on Thursday and AR goal achievers on Friday. Don't forget your field day attire complete with tennis shoes, active wear and sunscreen. Teachers will share your child's field day color this week. We hope for sun but plan for indoor classroom fun if mother nature has other plans.

For now, enjoy the beautiful evening!

Before next year we will need to assess your child's learning skills to help us prepare for next year and provide you with summer learning focus skills. Incoming Kindergartners must be 5 years old by August 1st, 2016. Please share with all future JSE Kindergarten Families!
