    • A mini stapler
    • Blue or black ink pens
    • Pencils/ not mechanical please

     Sustained Silent Reading

    In addition, students need a book at their Lexile level to be kept at school for SSR – Sustained Silent Reading in class.  

     Tissues are always needed, so if you would like to donate a box it would be very much appreciated!

    Good communication is vital, I sign the planner each day and ask that  you do the same.  If you need to contact me with any questions or concerns, the best way to get in touch with me is via e-mail, at: ekochis@jacksonsd.org   I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
