WELCOME TO OUR
WE ARE A NUT FREE CLASSROOM!
FOR THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR CLASSMATES, PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY BIRTHDAY OR OTHER TREATS THAT MAY CONTAIN NUTS TO SCHOOL
Over the summer months, students are encouraged to practice their math facts and to read a lot! Practicing math facts will help students be ready for third grade math. Continued reading is essential in maintaining the skills learned this year. Reading often will increase fluency, stamina, decoding, and comprehension skills. Don't let your child be a victim of the "summer slide", where students lose much of what they have gained this year. Please have your child participate in the Jackson School District "CHECK IT OUT" program. Information was sent home last week. Additional reading logs can be found on the school website. The Switlik library will be opened on four dates this summer. Please take advantage of our library or the Jackson Public Library (check out their summer program) and have your child select the books that they want to read.
Switlik IMC will be opened on:
Monday, July 8 (9:00 - 1:00)
Monday, July 29 (2:00-6:00)
Monday, August 12 (9:00-1:00)
Monday, August 26 (2:00-6:00)

It is suggested that each child have a backpack, extra pencils, and an athletic sock or wash cloth (to erase our individual white boards). I will provide each student with a pencil box with supplies, a planner (courtesy of our fabulous PTN), and a homework folder.
IT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL IF YOUR CHILD IS ABLE TO MEMORIZE THEIR STUDENT ID# AND THEIR BUS#! THANK YOU!
Thank you for the donations of tissues and baby wipes. They are always welcome throughout the school year.
A special thank you to our fabulous PTN for all that they do!
I can can be reached through my email, at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will respond to you as soon as possible. If there is a something that needs immediate attention please send a note with your child. If there is a change in dismissal for the day, a note is required. For example, a note is needed if your child will be picked up instead of riding the bus home or there is a change in child care after school. If a change comes up unexpectedly during the day, please call the main office as soon as possible.
