Welcome to Jack T. Elementary School. I hope this year proves to be a positive and exciting experience for you and your child(ren).
Student needs and safety are at the forefront of every program, policy, event, and experience planned at our school. The teachers and staff at JTF are dedicated professionals who look forward to helping every child grow academically and socially. We will strive to provide developmentally appropriate instruction and practices that will instill a love for learning in each child.
I encourage you to actively participate in your child(ren)’s education. Regularly checking homework, listening to your child read regularly, engaging in positive conversations about school , helping with projects, and attending school events will help your child(ren) have a great year. If you are willing to go the extra mile for our school, you are invited to join our PTO (Parent/Teacher Organization) to help make decisions and provide resources and experiences for our children.
Please read through this handbook and share its contents with your child(ren). If you need additional information, have ideas to share, or concerns that need to be addressed, feel free to call our school office or come by for a visit. My door is always open!
Thank you for trusting your child(ren) to our care and partnering with us to make 2018-2019 a great school year!
Deborah B. Edens, Principal
