Please see below for Game Day information:
Dear Switlik Families,
As our Game Days are quickly approaching, I would like to outline some guidelines to make each day safe, efficient and fun for all.
- Only parents who have signed up through their child’s classroom teacher to assist in Game Day activities will be permitted to participate in the day.
- All parents must sign in with our receptionists located in the main entrance of our building. It is district policy that a photo identification is presented to our reception area each and every time you enter our school. Absolutely no one will be permitted to participate unless they are signed in with proper identification, their Game Day pass, and will then be presented with their visitor’s badge. Your badge must be on you at all times while you are on school grounds.
- For safety reasons, siblings are not permitted to attend Game Day this includes high school students as well.
- Game Day T-Shirts are to remain “intact” for Game Day. T-Shirts should not be cut or embellished.
- Game Day will end promptly at 1:00 p.m., at which time your child will have their lunch.
- We discourage you from signing your child out after Game Day, as it will count as a half-day absence. There will be instructional time for the remainder of that day.
Game Day Schedule – Weather Permitting (dates are subject to change):
Monday, June 3 Kindergarten
Tuesday, June 4 Grade 1
Wednesday, June 5 Grade 2

The PTN will be providing a free pizza lunch from a local pizzeria for all students in Grades K-5 on the day of their Game Day. Each student will be given two slices of pizza and a bottle of water compliments of the PTN. The PTN hopes that this adds to the fun and excitement of the Game Day experience! If your child(ren) does not wish to participate, they may either purchase lunch in the cafeteria or bring in lunch from home.
Thank you for your cooperation.
We enjoyed our time at Insectropolis!
Due to allergies, our room is egg free.
School Store will be on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the cafeteria during lunch. Students will have the opportunity to shop once they have eaten. Items are priced between $0.25 - $2.00.
We are always collecting items for SCIENCE!
Please send in paper towel tubes, empty and clean water bottles,
small cardboard boxes(pasta,snack food boxes),craft stones/pebbles, zip lock baggies.
Thank you for your donations!
How is your reading STAMINA?
Please remember to read from your Reading Bag each day!
We are so very learning skills and strategies and good reading habits!
I am very proud of you!
Remember to practice your words every day!
Writer's Workshop Unit of Study:
When writing~remember our goals:
*Begin each sentence with a capital
*End each sentence with a: . ? or !
*Finger spaces in between words
*Check your work~Does it make sense?
Practice those facts!Please practice addition and subtraction facts to 18 with your child.A simple deck of addition and subtraction flash cards can be a huge help with this.
They can be purchased at the dollar store.It is very important that your child knows these facts in order to complete our timed fast facts tests.The math website is: Pearsonrealize.comHit the button Pearson Easybridge plus and autoFind the school that says Jackson Township school districtClick GoStudent login is: your child's student ID numberStudent password is: your child's first name with a capital letter and then 01 at the end of it.Please then follow all the steps on the screen to set up your child's account.
Remember to check your child's Take Home Folder each day.
Math homework will be marked with HW. Reading will also be a part of our daily homework, including an occasional reader's response. Homework is an important review and reinforcement of the day's work. Please provide a quiet space and encourage your child to do their best work. Also, review and SIGN your child's homework.
Remember to always pick "good- fit" books to read! It is easy to do:
- I choose a book
- Purpose- Why do I want to read it?
- Interest- Am I interested in it?
- Comprehend- Am I understanding what I am reading?
- Know- I know most of the words
Many Parents Ask:
How can I help my child become a better reader?
Continue to read to him every day and expose him to the language of books. Have him read to you. If he makes a mistake, simply tell him the correct word and let him move on. This increases enjoyment and fluency.
To increase comprehension, talk about the story after you've read it.
Please encourage your child to show kindness, respect and appreciation to others!
Bucket Filling Ideas To Do At Home:
1. Ask a friend, neighbor or family member if you can help them complete a chore
2. Help around the house, community, beaches, parks, libraries
3. Keep track of your bucket filling by using:
a calendar to record how you filled someone's bucket, a bucket and place stones inside to keep track or a journal to write about what you did!
Our lunch is at 11:35
If you are able to donate any of the following items to our classroom, it would be greatly appreciated.
We use these items all throughout the year so you can send them in at any time:
tissues, paper towels, baby wipes, Lysol wipes, large and small zip lock bags,
large and small paper plates, lunch or craft bags, play dough, squishy balls
~Also, we can always find a use for any items that you may be looking to find a new home for. (games, puzzles, blocks, books, trinkets, toys, craft supplies, dollar store items or something fun for our treasure box)
One person's trash is another person's treasure!
Thank you for thinking about our class!
Recess Reminders: We will be going outside daily, weather permitting. Please remember that for safety reasons, your child needs to be wearing sneakers to play on the playground. Thank you for your cooperation.
It is a great idea to send an extra water bottle to school for your child to drink after recess!
Please remember that birthday invitations can not be handed out in school.
If your child would like to celebrate his/her birthday, you may send a small treat to school. Birthday treats are enjoyed in the lunchroom, so please bring the treats to school by 10:30.
Here is a list of school supplies that you may want your child to have.
These supplies are not required but some parents look for suggestions:
* Remember a backpack large enough to carry folders and books.
