It’s nearing the end of October and what a wonderful first few months of school it has been. Our 6th and 7th grade students have experienced field trips and our 8th graders are doing a great job stepping into leadership roles in the school.
As a school and district we are focusing on the KLSD Learning Commitment that “we strive to create learning experiences for all students that are intellectually engaging, relevant, and take place in an active learning environment.” Our friends from the Tri-State Consortium were able to provide us with some helpful feedback as we strive toward this goal. At JJMS, we are focusing on the learning commitment by planning lessons based on what we know about the students in the classroom to increase intellectual engagement.
We have just finished elections for our student council. Students were required to create a video to speak to their peers via JJMS Live TV during our Homebase time. It was incredible to hear the message that some of our students brought to this endeavor!
We are all looking forward to what the weather has in store for us this fall and getting ready for the holiday season.
If you’d like to know about what is happening more frequently in the school, please follow me on twitter @MrSwiatowicz or on Instagram (MrSwiatowicz).
It’s great to be part of the JJMS and KLSD community!
In partnership with you,
