Back to School

    Ms. DiStasi's Google Classroom


    Dear Families,

    Thank you so much for your continued support in partnering with me in your child's education. As we move forward with remote learning on Monday, March 30th, we will be utilizing our Google Classroom. Lessons and assignments will be posted by 8:00 a.m.daily. Please complete assignments at a time that is most convenient for you and your family. However, I ask that you turn work in by the end of the day so I can look it over and adjust future lessons. We will also be using websites that I can monitor student work and progress. This virtual learning is new to all of us and I thank you for your patience and help. Please email me with any questions.

    Stay well,

    Ms. DiStasi


    Parents, I want to leave this message for you

    Right now, don't worry about your child regressing in school. Every single kid in the USA is in this boat and they all will be OK! When we get back to the classroom, we will meet them where they are and go from there. At the end of all of this, your child's mental health will be more important than their academic skills. And how they felt at this time will stay with them long after the memory of these weeks is long gone. So, keep that in mind every single day!











    DON'T FORGET........



    Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

    I would like to welcome you and your child to my classroom.  I hope you’ve enjoyed your summer and are ready to begin an exciting new year.  I look forward to getting to know your child and preparing him/her for the next grade level.  I have planned lessons to motivate student learning and help them with organization while improving their self-esteem.

    I will discuss specific classroom procedures at Back-To-School Night.  We will be utilizing the chromebooks throughout the school year.  It would be beneficial for your child to bring in their own headphones/earbuds to use over the course of the year.  Please send them in a Ziploc baggie with their name clearly labeled on it.

    Some others items that would be helpful are:

    *glue sticks

    *crayons & markers


    *expo markers

    *hand sanitizer

    *pencil box/case


    I encourage you to provide any suggestions or information that can help me in meeting your child’s educational needs and promoting his/her intellectual growth.  Please feel free to contact me at anytime via email at mdistasi@jacksonsd.org or 732.833.4640.
     I look forward to working with you and your child!

    Get ready to be a STAR in Room 214 on Thursday, September 5, 2019!!!!
