       Happy Fall!  We are off to a great start!   Thank you for your help and patience during the opening of our HYBRID school year! Please welcome our student teacher, Mrs. Acquaviva!  Mrs. Acquaviva  has 2 sons (ages 6 and 8) who also go to a Jackson school and will be part of our classroom a few times a week.

    We are now the FAB 4:    Mrs. Alkalay, the regular ed teacher, Miss McLaughin, the special education teacher, and Mrs. Polito, our fabulous paraprofessional and Mrs. Acquaviva!   Miss McLaughlin will be subbing for Mrs. Sanzone until December, since  Mrs. Sanzone is  busy taking care of her new adorable baby boy, Joey!
