How to Check i-Ready Weekly Progress

We created a video for you to learn how to check your student's i-Ready weekly progress. Students should be working in i-Ready for at least forty-five minutes in Reading and Math each week. The minimum target pass rate is 70%. The weekly progress resets each Saturday. Learn how to monitor your child's progress by watching this video. (Spanish video)

From Jaguar Journey:

I hope this finds you having enjoyed a pleasant Memorial Day weekend with family and friends. Memorial Day is always such a special holiday as we pause to remember America's fallen and the loss to their families. As for this week, Wednesday, May 29th is our last day of the 2018-2019 school year. Once again, we ask that none of our students bring a backpack to school tomorrow. 

In this final issue of the regular school year, we continue to share both student and staff success stories which I think our community will enjoy. We had so many accomplishments this year, but space in this email limits what we can include. Please know what you see below is only the tip of the iceberg. Our teachers and administrators are so very proud of the efforts our young Jaguars have put forth since this past August backed by some terrific support from home. 

As for communications this summer, we might run a few abbreviated issues of the Jaguar Journey and our website will be continuously updated. And even though we are about to complete the school year, I encourage all of our Jaguars to get started on their summer reading requirements sooner rather than later this summer (details below). 

Make it a great week and once again, thank you for your continued support. It has been a privilege to serve as your principal this year and I am looking forward to another successful year in 2019-2020! 

With Jaguar Pride,

Mrs. Betzabeth Reussow 
Principal

Progress Reports 
I hope you enjoyed the Presidents' Day holiday this past Monday. Please remember that we have released student Progress Reports for the third marking period. If you have a student at Jackson, please review their results as soon as possible keeping in mind that we do offer free tutoring for all students. In fact, tomorrow we are having another Saturday tutoring session. This one is focused on math and runs from 9:00 a.m. to noon.   
 
Parent Survey Reminder 
We are still working towards a 20% response rate on this year's Parent Survey. The feedback helps us a great deal in school improvement planning. If this applies to your household, please take a few moments to complete the anonymous survey. Your time is sincerely appreciated.   
 
 
 
  
Enjoy your weekend and thank you for looking over this latest issue!

Final Days of the Third Quarter
This week was our last regular five-day school week of the third quarter - calendar. There is no school on Friday, March 15 for students, but it is a regular workday for the teachers as they finalize grades for the quarter. With time growing very short in this nine-week marking period, I encourage all of our Jaguars to complete any missing assignments or projects as soon as possible in order to earn the final grades they are capable of and deserve.

No Early Dismissal Wednesdays
This past Wednesday, March 6 was one of OCPS' non-early dismissal Wednesdays for the spring. There are still four of these Wednesdays remaining so all students will have the opportunity to  complete SAT and/or FSA tests without concern for running out of time:

* Wednesday, April 3
* Wednesday, May 1  
* Wednesday, May 8
* Wednesday, May 15

2019 Parent Survey
There are just a few days left to access the online parent survey (link below). If you completed this year's survey, thank you very much. If you have a student at Jackson and have yet to do so, please take a few moments to complete the survey. The opinions of parents are very important to our school practices so we encourage all parents and guardians to participate. Thank you for your help.

Have a great weekend and please do not forget to turn your clocks ahead 1 hour on Sunday for Daylight Savings Time.
