• Important Budget Update April 10, 2024:

      NJ Department of Education Has Informed ALL School Districts They May Not Seek Loans for 2024-2025 Budgets

      For the Jackson School District, this means we are unable to borrow the $30 million we needed to balance the 2024-2025 budget, as described in our Tentative Budget introduced March 20th.

      This announcement could have unimaginable consequences for the Jackson School District.

      WE NEED decision-makers to understand what this would mean for our district.


      Please see our Budget and Financial Information Page explaining what is going on, including:

      -A brief video

      A flyer to help us understand what could be at stake

      A full resource guide with CONTACT information for the Governor, Commissioner of Education and Legislative leaders so you can HELP US ADVOCATE FOR OUR STUDENTS!

      It is more important than ever that the state of New Jersey understands the state of OUR district.

      Thank you for your support! 

    Check out our new morning announcements on Switlik Elementary TV! Many of our classmates and 5th grade students have been working diligently to bring us important information and news of events daily!

    I can be reached via email at klevine@jacksonsd.org. However, please be respectful in allowing me ample time to respond. Instructional time does not allow for response to emails.  

    see you in class

    Please come to class prepared with a couple of sharpened pencils and erasers. Some suggested materials are as follows:   a 2 pocket folder (to bring home important papers, homework, graded assignments, and any information necessary to be sent home) and a composition notebook, a zippered soft pencil case (that will fit in the desk), a highlighter, sharpened pencils, pen, post-its, a 1 gallon ziplock bags- WHICH WILL HOLD THE NOVEL YOU'RE READING, and 1-2 back up books (meaning books you're interested in reading). If you're unable to gather these materials please let me know and I will be happy to assist.**** Parent/Guardians please check their folder and planner every night and send them back with it for the next day. The students are required to write their homework in their planner everyday. I will not be checking the planners daily unless your child has a note written in it, in which they should show me first thing in the morning. This will help to foster independence for middle school.

    **Your child's planner or contact via email (klevine@jacksonsd.org) can also be used as a way to reach me and make sure we are doing our very best to work as a team to help your child reach their fullest potential.**

    **If there is a change to your child's dismissal plan please be sure to send in a note or call the main office (732-833-4650) as I could be absent, or I may not get to see the email until the end of the day.**

    Homework: Please show your child that their homework is extremely important. Make it a priority; provide necessary supplies and a quiet work environment. It is a valuable aid in helping students to reinforce what is learned in the classroom and make the most of their learning experience. Set aside a daily time and provide praise and support. If I can offer any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Classroom supplies are always appreciated, such as tissues, baby wipes, sanitizing wipes, hand sanitizer, pencils/erasers, paper towels, and mini water bottles.


    ** If you have a nut allergy you must bring in a note from a parent on the first day of school stating you do not have to sit at the nut free lunch table.**



    Birthday Party Policy

    Birthdays will be celebrated at lunchtime in the cafeteria.  To be sensitive to allergy concerns, non-edible items (e.g. toys, stickers, pencils) are strongly encouraged for these celebrations so that all children can participate in the celebration.
    If you choose to send in a snack, consider a healthy snack. Also please note that all items sent must be in individually wrapped, pre-packaged portions so that the child can easily distribute to classmates. Ice-cream cakes and whole cakes cannot be accommodated by the food service staff.  You can deliver your item and/or treat to the receptionist or send it with the birthday child.  Visitors are not permitted in the cafeteria.  Birthday and/or party invitations are not handed out in school, under any circumstances.
    Chromebooks have been provided to each student for use at home and in school for the 2023-2024 school year. Please remember to bring your chromebooks to school each day and charge every night so they are accessible for learning. Please review chromebooks protocol and expectations below:

    The District Tech Tool Kit and Student/Parent Tutorials are available to help you with some common tech problems and document questions.

    **Important Notes**

    Please label everything that comes in, including water bottles. And don't forget sweatshirts/jackets as the weather will start to get cooler!  This can be as easy as pinning a ribbon or piece of fabric inside the clothing, so you DO NOT have to write on it. 

    • Our room gets chilly, so I recommend students bring a sweatshirt to keep in their backpack.


    Bucket Filler

    BE A BUCKET FILLER, NOT A BUCKET DIPPER!!!!  Have you been a bucket filler today? You can be a bucket filler in many different ways... By trying your best in school, giving respect to all your peers and adults, helping someone in need, and treating others the way you want to be treated.
