Happy Holidays! Our first trimester has flown by! It looks like the weather has agreed with us so far and we’re hoping that continues through the winter. At this point, students should have settled into a routine and be forming lasting relationships with both the friends and their teachers.
We thank all of those students who have participated in our afterschool activities this fall and those who continue to participate into our winter session. These activities are a great way for students to be part of the JJMS community beyond the academics part of our day. Special appreciation goes out to everyone who was part of our fall drama, The Twilight Zone. We thank you all for taking us to, “a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination.”
As the KLSD moves into budget season we continue to focus on the Learning Commitment as “we strive to create learning experiences for all students that are intellectually engaging, relevant, and take place in an active learning environment.” As a staff, we are using what we know about the students in the classroom in order to create the most intellectually engaging classroom environments. We will continue to use our resources and professional learning to continue to enhance this experience.
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) or at the school hashtag #JJMS.
In partnership with you,
