Happy Friday at Jewett,

I hope that everyone has enjoyed another great week.  I want to thank you all again for your efforts in making our early dismissal day Wednesday a smooth transition.  I also want to thank several families for donating tissues and disinfectant wipes to the school to help us try and prevent the spread of germs.  It's a tough flu season this year and we are trying to work together to keep everyone healthy.

The students have completed the IReady assessments.  I was so proud of how they all worked so hard to do their best on these assessments.  The data that we have collected is going to be so valuable for us to use as we map out the best possible educational plan for all of our students.  Parents of those students that participated in the IReady testing will be receiving a breakdown of your child's assessment results the Wednesday (2/21) before vacation.

Our student council has been such an active part of our school community.  The students have been doing more and more facilitating during our monthly 'Leader in Me Assemblies".  The goal will be to have the entire assembly run by students.  Next for the student council will be to start doing our morning announcements.  They have developed a daily script and with the guidance of Mr. Papajohn and Mr. Babebradt the students themselves will deliver the entire morning announcements.  We are developing some great student leaders in this school, great work!

I hope everyone has a great weekend, stay warm and healthy!
