Dear Dedicated and Delightful Students,

       0Can you believe it is November already? We look forward to speaking with you at conferences Nov. 16-18. We have been enjoying getting to know your child's strengths, interests, and watching friendships blossom! We thank you for checking your child's homework paper daily and helping your child adjust to a full day of school.  We have been spending a lot of time playing games and creating fun challenges  to help us learn procedures and rules which help to promote a fun and respectful classroom. We have reviewed many skills and have been adjusting activities and lessons according to last year's atypical year. Please have your child read for 30 minutes every night ( Mon-Fri.) Please continue to check out our Google Classroom page for updates. 
    Mrs. Sanzone has extended her maternity leave until

    the end of January, so luckily, Ms. McLaughlin will be with us until Mrs. Sanzone's return.  Please continue to email both of us, so we are all informed. 

    We have snack everyday around 10:45.  Please send in a HEALTHY snack. Please do not send in cookies, cakes, chips, candy etc..   The above items are not permitted for snack. Thank you for your help!

    1. Should I sign my child's planner (homework assignments will be written in here, daily)?

    Answer:  Yes, please. The planner is a great form of communication.  We will check it EVERY MORNING.  By signing it, we know you have seen the assignments for that day.  Please feel free to write ANY notices you would like us to know.  We will always respond back. If you prefer email, that is great, too. However, PLEASE do not rely on email for something very important/time sensitive, since many days are very busy and we may not see it until after school.  


    Answer:  Go to GMAIL.  Type in their LOGIN: LUNCH # @jacksonsd.org   Their PASSWORD is their lunch#with the @ symbol ( 123456@), unless you changed it.

     3.  How do I know if my child has an assignment on Google Classroom.

    Answer:  It will be written in their DAILY PLANNER.  GC = Google Classroom. 

    computer  Please check our GC page daily to see updates and assignments. Your child is responsible for all his/her assignments. GO to your child's Gmail. Then,click on the waffle (9 dots at the top of your Gmail page). Then, scroll down to find GOOGLE CLASSROOM.  Click ASSIGNMENTS to see ASSIGNMENTS and STREAM to see updates. 


    Please feel free to email us with ANY questions or concerns.  We are here to help!
