Jaguars Share their Artistic Skills

May 1, 2015

Dear Jackson Families,

We are now in the final month of the year!  Students are trying to bring closure to long term projects, and teachers are working through the last units in the curriculum.  Just as you saw on BRAG night, it’s been very fulfilling to observe the different skills and written products which students have developed.  When we see pieces of writing that are detailed and rich with personal and literary connections, we can celebrate the growth of our Jaguars’ skills in written expression.  Students have been creative, both within their fine arts products, as well as their use of technological tools to make well-developed and imaginative writings.

Our spring music performances will conclude this coming week, with our remaining K-3rd grade informances.  Students get very excited to demonstrate their musical talents to their parents.  Please check out our schedule of music performances for our students.

On Wednesday, May 6th, we encourage our students to participate in National Walk/Bike to School Day.  For a fun, family morning getting to school, we encourage many parents to join their Jaguars on the way in to school on that morning.  This is also our last late arrival day, so there’s a little more time in the morning to get to school that day.

Also, as a friendly reminder to all 2nd grade and kindergarten parents, your child’s dental forms are due May 15th into our health office if you haven’t submitted them.  If you need a form, please click here.   For any questions on this, please contact our nurse, Mrs. Glassi.  (Our school number is 630-834-4544.)

Enjoy your weekend,

Ryan D. Anderson
