Dear Jackson Davis Families,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I am so excited to begin another school year and I can’t wait to see all of our students and families. I am looking forward to a year filled with learning and fun!
Our student expectations of Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be Ready to Learn will help us to continue to provide a learning environment where all students can be successful. Students will continue to learn that being their best and doing their best is always important, no matter how difficult the challenge.
We will continue to use the four pillars of the deeper learning model to guide our work this year. It is our hope that your students will feel challenged academically, learn how to navigate their challenging worlds, serve their greater JDES community and realize the importance of the academic tasks they are learning.
We are so fortunate to have a strong team of teachers and staff members who have high expectations for student success while balancing that with the needs of all students. We believe in a strong academic focus but balance that with the need for students to play, collaborate, problem solve and create. Family members are a key to our success as a school. We can’t do it without you! Together we can help all children to learn and grow as individuals and strong members of our community.
This year our theme of “Magic Happens Here” will help us to realize that learning is magical! We want our students to have fun while learning. Of course, we know that some learning must happen and may not seem fun, but we hope our students and families will see that we are learning even when we think we aren’t.
We are thankful to have a strong PTA partnership. They not only support us with 100% of their profits but they collaborate with us as a school to plan enriching activities that support our entire community. We hope that you will consider joining and supporting the PTA through their events and by joining as a member.
We have an exciting year ahead of us! I encourage each family to set goals for the year and talk about what you hope to accomplish this school year. I hope that each of you will have a great year filled with fun and learning! If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or myself.
Mrs. Chris Bonner
