May 26-29, 2020





Dear TJ Families,

As we conclude this academic year in the most unusual way, I have been reminded of how strong our Thomas Jefferson Community is. I am humbled by the grace of each and every staff member, student, parent, guardian, and caregiver. We have truly RISEN to the occasion and demonstrated how resilient we are and how we RISE TOGETHER. THANK YOU!

There are two more instructional days this week and I know that our teachers have planned some fun and exciting things to do as we round out the academic school year. Please sign in to your Google classroom as we say, "See You Soon."

Have a wonderful, safe, and healthy Memorial Day Weekend.

Mrs, Acke

EduTyping Now Available for all Students in Grades 1-8 
Part of the Roseville City School District Digital Literacy plan, all students in grades 1-4 were given access this school year to a typing program called EduTyping.  Edutyping was kind enough to give the program to all 5th-8th grade students in our District for free from now until August 2021.   The goal of this program is to help students improve their typing fluency. Here are instructions on how students can log into EduTyping.  EduTyping Login Instructions 


IReady
iReady instruction is available for students in Kinder-5th grade for reading and math until July 23rd. This is a great opportunity for your child/children to work on reading and math at their instructional level. If you haven't had your child log on yet, please have them do so this week so their teacher can help problem solve any issues before the summer break. Your child will be able to continue working on it in the summer if you want. This is something they can do independently without your help.



Upcoming Dates
May 18th - Teacher PD Day for Science Curriculum - No Lessons
 - Students can work on reading, writing, IReady lessons, other activities from the teacher
May 27th  - Last Day of Instruction
June 2nd - Item Pick Up from Multi - Teachers will be bagging up items from the classroom that belong to your child.  Schedule sent next week.
