Message from the Principal’s Office

 

MJ Community,

 

Over the past couple of years the elementary principals have set a goal of reviewing the specials offerings for students while also offering more choice for students and families. Over the fall and early winter, the principals and members of central administration met to discuss possibilities while also including recommendations from the Digital Literacy/Computer Science (DLCS) curriculum review.

 

At the most recent school committee meeting, the plan was unveiled as part of the budget presentation. Next year, all students will continue to receive Art, Library, Music, and PE just like they do this year and students in our 2nd through 5th grade will also have a weekly DLCS class. Our Kindergarten and 1st graders will have an additional PE class each week. Additionally, we also will introduce choice into our 4th grade music. Currently students have to play an instrument in 4th grade. Next year, 4th graders (and their families) will have an option to choose if they want to learn an instrument or take a more general music class.

We are excited to implement these changes as we move forward.

BIRTHDAY BOOKS & LIBRARY VOLUNTEERS

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to participate in the

PTO Birthday Book Program! Ms. Swimming has selected some fantastic books that students have requested, but the Martha Jones library does not currently have. During their birthday month, participating children are invited to the library to pick a brand new book from this collection. A bookplate commemorating your child’s birthday will be placed inside the front cover and they will be the very first student to borrow this book! Once they’ve finished reading it, the book will be returned to the library’s collection, where it can be enjoyed for years to come. The cost of this program is $15 per student. 

 

Sign-up as a Library Volunteer! Mrs. Swinning needs one parent per class to help check-in, shelve, and check-out books. This is a great opportunity to get into the school, interact with your child’s class, and support the library program!
