  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand and Then to be Understood

    Seek First to Understand and Then to be Understood means that it is better to listen first and then talk second.  Listening is a skill and we must teach children how to listen.  Have children practice listening without interrupting.  They can also practice listening with their eyes, ears, and heart.  Simply put, we have two ears and one mouth, so we can spend more time listening with the intent to understand.  Activities to do at home: Often times body language can be even more important than words. Play a game with your kids, where you both try to guess the others emotion (happy, sad, angry, bored, frustrated) without using any words, only body language.  Then discuss how some body language may make you feel.  This is a good way to spark some conversation with your children about the habits and how we should always seek first to understand and then to be understood.

  •  Jump Rope for Heart  is a community service learning program of the American Heart Association.  It teaches kids: 

    *the importance of developing heart- healthy habits;

    * that being physical active can be fun;

    * that raising funds to support cardiovascular research and education helps save  the lives in their community and across the country.

     We will kick-off this event with an assembly on Friday, Feb. 12th. The Jump Rope for Heart event will take place the week of February 22-26, 2016. Last year we raised $1,515.

     The goal this year is to raise $1,800! We are counting on you for this very worth cause, so “Put your heart in it” Jackson School!

  • The Scholastic Book Fair is Coming to JES and it is Going to be “Groovy!”

    The book fair will be open to students and their families beginning on February 19th and will run through February 27th .  The hours of operation will be 7:30-3:00 daily.  Students will also have an opportunity to preview the book during their regularly scheduled library times.  Family members are also invited to shop anytime that the book fair is open.  Teachers will be previewing the book fair prior to its opening, and they will be creating a classroom wish list in hopes that students and parents will purchase a book and donate it to their classroom libraries.  All profits from the book fair go directly back to the library program to purchase additional books for the students to checkout.  We hope to see you there!

    We have a lot to celebrate this school year.  At the end of the 1st semester at our school went from 57% to 77% in Math Fluency and 45% to 71% in Reading Comprehension.  We will have a school wide popcorn celebration to acknowledge our success from the 1st  semester.  I am so proud of our Jackson School Leaders and I look forward to the growth in the 3rd nine weeks. Please continue to discuss goal setting and strategies used to achieve goals with your children.  

    We have a few leadership events that will take place very soon.  We will celebrate our Moms on Wednesday, 2/3.  Our Leadership  Pageant will take place Friday, 2/5 and we are preparing for our  annual leadership day that will be held Friday, 3/4.  We do appreciate your support at the various events.  

     

     Educationally

    yours,
    Mrs. Goodwin
