September 2019

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! I am excited to begin a new school year and am looking forward to a great year. Welcome to our new third grade students and welcome back to our fourth and fifth grade students. I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and is ready for the new school year. The JAE faculty and staff are committed to providing the best possible education for every child in a safe, nurturing environment. 

This year your children will be enjoying great books and crafting wonderful stories. We will continue our work in the implementation of the 2011 P-12 Learning Standards in English Language Arts and math. We will also deepen our understanding of the wide variety of genres as readers and writers. We will continue to implement Go Math and learn the importance of citizenship and how the world works. It is going to be a strong year of learning!

We have our school sprit week beginning September 16, each day students and staff wear different items to show our school spirit! We will also be participating in “Hello Week” sponsored by the Sandy Hook Promise Organization and the Shared Decision Team the week of September 23. Throughout the week, daily activities will take place that promote being a friend and creating a culture of connectedness within our school. 

Our students at JAE are empowered to become life-long learners and caring citizens. Working with parents in education is a priority and an important piece of the JAE community.  I thank you in advance for your support and cooperation as we work together to ensure that your child has a successful school experience. I look forward to working closely with the JAE community.
