News from Jacks Creek Elementary School


By: Becky Hartle

It was such a wonderful spring week here at Jacks Creek Elementary School as we are finishing up our school year strong!
Kindergarten had a great week. Students enjoyed all the fun games and being outside for Field Day. It is hard to believe that the end of the school year is here. Students celebrated with our Awards Day on Monday. Students performed and received a trophy. Wednesday, May 26, is the last day for students. Report cards can be picked up between 10-10:30 a.m. on Friday, May 28. We hope everyone has a safe and fun summer break! 
We had an awesome week in first grade! We continued to work on our animal research papers. The kids have done wonderfully on all of them. We worked on missing numbers, true and false equations, and adding three numbers this week in math. We also had field day, snow cones, and an hour long PE. We were busy, but we have had fun! 
We had a great field day in second grade. We got to compete against each other in events such as balloon stomp, high dive and one on one tug of war. We had a great day and topped it off with a snowcone. We have had a great year in second grade even though there were many changes this year. I think we are all ready for third grade!
In third grade, we finished our awards day. We want to thank our families for coming to support us. Our third graders will officially be fourth graders on Friday. We will have a report card pick up at 10 a.m. Friday. See you then!
