THE JACKSON JOTTER
Tiger Talk with Mrs. Moisson
Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends of Jackson,
We have started out the school year with many fun and exciting changes! I am delighted to share our new staff members with all of you in this newsletter. We have some wonderful new people that have joined our Jackson family and they are Sarah Brehm - Academic Learning Coach, Kayla Sylla - 1st grade Teacher, Brittany Fitzsimons - 2nd grade Teacher, Andrea Dunmore - 2nd grade Teacher, Tina Janssen - 3rd grade Teacher, Katie Severson - 4th grade Teacher, Tom Smith- EL Teacher, Dan Bayreuther - Part time PE Teacher, Benjamin Mohr - Part time Art Teacher, Kim Briggs - Part time EL Teacher, Kim Smith - Speech Language Pathologist and Victoria Robinson - Student Teacher Fall Semester. You will have an opportunity to meet some of the new staff members during our Parent Teacher Conferences on Wednesday, October 20th and Thursday, October 21st.
Parent Teacher Conferences are going to be similar this year to our Welcome Back Conferences that we held before school started. We will be offering you an opportunity to attend your child’s conference in person, virtually on Zoom or Google Meet, and/or through a phone conference. We are wanting to make sure that we are keeping everyone safe and are following Covid-19 restrictions. We will be sending home a note with your child for you to select your conference preference style and the opportunity to pick a preferred date and time window. We are keeping social distancing of 6 ft. between staff and family members. We are asking all individuals over 5 years of age to wear a face mask. If you have a large group or a separate family, please indicate that you prefer two conferences to meet the two different family’s needs or select a virtual option. We believe that Parent Teacher Conferences are such an important opportunity for you to ask us questions and share important information about your child. We can learn from you! We will also have our Book Fair being hosted in the LMC during our October Conferences. Thank you for helping us during this unusual Covid-19 time.
Thank you all for participating so willingly in our drop off and pick up routine at Jackson! We are striving for student safety in all decisions that we make. All drop off and pick up of Jackson students can be completed on Jackson Street. Drivers can drive south on Jackson Street and circle around in the loop at the end of the street. Children then can be dropped off on Jackson Street in the curb area next to Door 6. If your child is dropped off and must cross Jackson Street, please make sure that they are crossing the street using our crosswalks. I truly appreciate your help with this important safety routine. All bus traffic will be on Burbank Avenue in front of Jackson Elementary. We are asking families to not stop on Burbank Avenue for waiting, dropping off or picking up children. Thank you! For quick reference: Burbank Avenue=Bus Transportation, Jackson Street=Jackson student drop off and pick up. We appreciate your patience and kindness as we have transitioned to our new routine in the morning and afternoon for drop off and pick up. I thank you for helping follow our Covid-19 safety routine.
As the weather gets cooler, please make sure that your child wears warm clothing to school. Children will be going outdoors before school, at lunch and at recess time. Please write your child’s name on all clothing, hats and mittens. We will have a lost and found table at our Parent Teacher conferences for families to reunite with their missing and lost clothing.
Some upcoming dates that you might want to reserve on your October & November Calendar:
Thursday and Friday, October 21st – 22nd No School for Students (Parent Teacher Conferences)
Wednesday, October 20th– Parent Teacher Conferences 4pm – 7pm, Scholastic Book Fair 4pm-6pm LMC

Library and STEM
Students have begun the school year reviewing iPad Promises to make sure we are respectful, responsible and safe using our iPads as learning tools. This year we are continuing to use Seesaw as our learning management system. Teachers are able to send work digitally to students via Seesaw and students can complete their work using a variety of digital tools including writing, drawing, text, voice, video and photos. Please make sure you are connected to your child’s Seesaw class to view their completed work as well as receive messages from the teacher. We are excited to open up our library in October so students can begin book check out. We will also be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair during Parent Teacher Conferences and all families are welcome to attend and shop. More information will be coming up soon with details about the Fair. We look forward to seeing you there!
Val Johnson, Innovative Specialist
Academic Learning Coach Corner
Jackson School is an amazing place for learning in the School District of Janesville! Our primary goal for children at Jackson is to love learning in a safe, happy, and engaging environment. At Jackson School, we are committed to getting our students ready for college and careers. One of the ways we measure that learning is with the STAR assessments. Your child took these assessments in September in the areas of Early Literacy/Reading and Math. The results will be shared with you at conferences. These results provide teachers with excellent information about your child’s growth as well as how we will meet their needs the remainder of this school year. Your child’s teacher and I are happy to answer any questions you have about your child’s results. We are so happy that your children attend Jackson!
Academic Learning Coach
The Early Childhood class is having a great start to the school year! We are busy learning how to follow new classroom routines, take turns and share with friends. Don’t forget to send outerwear (jacket, change of shoes, etc.) because the weather is changing and we try to go outside whenever possible!
Meet at Door #6 when the weather does not allow for outside play at the end of the day. Also, we can get pretty messy so please send fresh clothes back to school whenever we send home dirty ones.
Mrs. Anna Fuller
P4J is off to a great start! We are learning school routines and setting expectations in our classroom. We are beginning to learn to share with others and wait quietly for our turn. In September we had fun learning about bears, colors, and apples. The next few months we will be learning about community helpers, fire safety, autumn, and turkeys. We are looking forward to seeing families again at parent/teacher conferences at the end of October. We are excited to tell you about all the fun things your child is learning in P4J. Watch for information about a field trip in October and a fun family event coming in November. Bring your questions and concerns. Remember there is no P4J on October 15th and November 12th. Have a great fall season!
Mrs. Koplin, Mrs Fuller and Ms. J
Dear Kindergarten Families,
We have had a wonderful time getting to know your children. The children have been busy learning about our Jackson School Tiger Truths of respect, responsibility, and safety; as well as our classroom rules and routines. We also have been having a fun time meeting new friends. Our color days were very exciting. We have been doing lots of activities and learning about school, ourselves, alphabet, and pumpkins. Please read 20 minutes with your child every day. If you haven’t already done so please send in a spare change of clothes for your child and gym shoes. If you have any questions please call or email us anytime. Thanks for all your support!
Mrs. Ransom, 608-743-6586 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs. Dravus, 608-743-6587 or email@example.com
Mrs. Rosburg, 608-743-6587 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We are off and running in first grade. We are quickly reviewing our sight words and new reading strategies. We hope you are checking your child’s Tiger Folder for notes or skills we are working on. The first month of school we have been working on our classroom routines and the Jackson Tiger Truths. Our Tiger Truths include being Respectful, Responsible, and Safe in all areas of school. A responsible first grader brings home their Tiger Folder each night, reviews their sight words and reads at home for 10-15 minutes. They also might work on spelling or handwriting. Another sign of responsibility might be writing their numbers, counting by 1’s, 5’s or 10’s. Ask if your child can share something they might have done at school and have them show you. All first graders will complete the STAR testing in September. We will share all your students’ growth and strengths in October at conferences. Please feel free to contact us at any time with questions or concerns. Thank you for working with your child on these skills. Together we will create strong readers, writers and awesome math scholars.
Ms. Bluemel, Ms. Grabow, Mrs. Masterson, and Mrs. Sylla
We are enjoying getting to know your students in 2nd Grade and settling into our daily routines. We are also working very hard on learning our Tiger Truths of being Respectful, Responsible, and Safe! By the end of September, we will have completed the first round of STAR testing in the areas of Early Literacy, Math, and Reading. We look forward to sharing the results with you at conferences in October. With reading and math being our core areas, we encourage you to read with your student every day and work on basic math facts. Please ask your child about the stories we have been reading in class and about other things they are learning. We are working on addition and subtraction strategies, measurement, time, and place value in math. In science, we will be studying the Earth’s surfaces. In social studies we are learning about geographical landforms, and about behavioral science, such as the differences between rules and laws and their consequences. We are looking forward to working with you and your students this year and to a productive year full of learning!
Mrs. Bodeau, Mrs. Dunmore, Mrs. Fitzsimons and Mrs. Sweeney
Jackson third graders are settling nicely into the routine. For reading and language and spelling we are piloting a new program, Intro Reading. During the first few months of school, students will be working on story structure (characters, setting, etc.), compare and contrast, and summarizing both fiction and non-fiction passages. You can help your child by establishing a nightly reading routine, and asking about what your child has read. If you would like a sample list of questions, please contact your child's teacher. In math we are following the newly implemented Bridges program. We are reviewing place value and efficient addition and subtraction strategies. We'll also be reviewing addition and subtraction basic facts and introducing basic multiplication facts. Please have your child practice addition and subtraction facts at home. In social studies, we are studying the three branches of American Government and science is devoted to the study of life cycles. We've really hit the ground running. If your child seems exhausted, it's because he or she has worked really hard in school. Thank you for all you do to support your child's learning journey.
Mrs. Janssen, Miss Peterson, Miss Riesterer
Welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year! We are very excited to be working with your children in fourth grade this year. We have had a great start to the school year with getting to know your child. We began the school year with reviewing PBIS expectations and classroom rules.
We started working on our 4th grade curriculum right away the first week and had STAR testing the week of September 14th. Students are doing well with activities in class and on Seesaw with their iPads. We are so proud of all of the work they have been doing. All of the students have been doing well with social distancing, wearing their masks, and keeping all areas clean. In the upcoming months, we will be working on multiplication strategies in math, energy in science, government and politics in social studies, and multiple literacy strategies in reading and writing.
We will be attending our first field trip of the year to JSOL for an outdoor education experience on Thursday, October 14th from 8:30 - 2:30. We will be identifying trees, tracks of animals, and going on some fun hikes. Please make sure to return all permission slips as soon as possible. Thank you for all the support you have given at the beginning of the school year. Please continue to encourage your child to read for 20 minutes every night and to work on their multiplication facts.
Ms. Garner and Mrs. Severson
Another year is well underway and the students in fifth grade have become accustomed to their new routines and the changes that have occurred because of Covid 19. Improving techniques in writing, new reading strategies and all sorts of different math ideas with our new “Bridges Math” materials, are just a few of the activities that are going on in our classrooms. We encourage students to work on their multiplication facts at home to improve accuracy. In science, the students are learning about how to become scientists and inventors. In reading we are working on new vocabulary and understanding the main idea by using context clues. Reading at home is always a good thing!!
We are also developing the understanding that fifth graders at Jackson are expected to be the leaders for the entire school. From behavior in the hallway, to sportsmanship at recess, they are to lead by example for the students in the younger grades.
Finally, the fifth grade staff is looking forward to an excellent year. With continued support from the parents and a maximum effort from the students, we expect wonderful learning to take place. Keep checking those assignment notebooks and remain an active participant in your child’s learning. If there are any questions, don’t hesitate to call.
Mr. Ries, 608-743-6551 and Mrs. Vazquez, 608-743-6552
As Title 1 teachers, we are excited to begin another school year. Both of us co-teach during reading in the classrooms, and work with small groups in reading or math. We have assisted in initial assessments to plan instruction and are excited to start working with all of our groups. It is great to see all of the returning students and new students. The new year is off to a great start!
Mrs. Bynum and Ms. Swanson
English Language Department (EL)
We welcome you to the Jackson School family! We are so excited to be back at school working with your children! Everyone is doing a phenomenal job following the rules to stay safe at school! This year we have three English as a Second Language (EL) teachers working with our bilingual/bicultural students. Jackson’s EL team includes three full-time teachers - Ms. Dries, Mr. Smith, and Mrs. Hanna, and one part time teacher, Mrs. Briggs. Here at Jackson, we embrace and celebrate the rich array of culture and languages that we are fortunate to have represented. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns throughout the school year. If you prefer Spanish, please call the bilingual line at 743-6519 to report absences, appointments, or student illness. During this pandemic, if your child is home sick, please provide the symptoms your child is experiencing. We look forward to a safe, healthy, and productive school year with your child and thank you for your support!
EL Tip of the Month: Encourage your children to speak in their native language at home; knowing their first language gives them the foundation needed to learn English!

Welcome back to school, Jackson families! Here is some news from the art room for the 2021-22 school year.
This year we are welcoming our part time art teacher Mr. Benjamin Mohr. He is teaching art to our 3rd grade students this year! Mr. Mohr graduated from UW Stout and also plays in a band. We are very excited to welcome him to our Jackson family!
This year Mr. Mohr and I will have our own Seesaw classroom for each homeroom again! We have been teaching your students how to get into our art classrooms through Seesaw. We will be sending messages home to all families through Seesaw. This is the primary way for you to contact us this year about anything happening in the art room. Watch for messages later this month. You can also reach Mrs. Ward through her email email@example.com and Mr. Mohr through his email firstname.lastname@example.org. The art room phone number is (608)743-6520 where you can leave a message. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time and we will be happy to talk with you or return a message within 24 hours whenever possible.
September 15th was International Dot Day! To celebrate Mr. Mohr and I had our students create dot art and we have begun displaying student dot art. We will send photos of the art displays through Seesaw. You can also view any artwork your students make throughout the school year by viewing your student’s journal in art class. Feel free to look at and like the pictures they post in the Seesaw art classes!
We look forward to an awesome year with your students at Jackson!

Talented and Gifted
The Talented and Gifted Advocates for Jackson School welcome you back to another great year! Mrs. Brehm will be the advocate for all students in grades K-5. I look forward to providing your child with enrichment opportunities to enhance his/her learning. Please remember that all enrichment opportunities are presented to students as optional, not required. It is always your child’s responsibility to make the decision to try the extra work. I will use the scores from the STAR assessments that students in K-5 are currently taking to identify potential new students. I look forward to a great year with your child!
Mrs. Sarah Brehm
Jackson Elementary School’s PBIS Plan
The purpose for Positive Behavioral Instructional Supports (PBIS) is to create a learning environment that focuses not only on academic achievement but also fosters social and emotional growth. We feel that social emotional learning is equally as important as academic learning. We believe that relationships among students, staff and the community are essential to the learning process. Our ultimate goal is to meet the needs of ALL students and provide the most enriching, positive educational experience possible. The school-wide approach to behavior management outlined below focuses on building a safe and positive environment in which all students can learn.
The foundation of PBIS at Jackson is the three building-wide expectations which are called our Tiger Truths: -Be Respectful, -Be Responsible, -Be Safe. We will be having monthly assemblies to teach and reinforce these building wide expectations along with developing the individual core values/character traits of Cooperation, Self-Control, Caring, Perseverance, Honesty, Appreciation and Friendship. This will be accomplished through the behavior management system outlined below. Emphasizing a monthly core value/character trait school wide is a highly successful way for each student to acquire and develop skills that will be used throughout their lives. When everyone at school is consistently reinforcing and modeling the same behavior, students are much more likely to remember and demonstrate the skill on a daily basis.
All classrooms at Jackson will use a 4-tier ladder system for behavior management. Children move up a level at a time for making good choices and down the chart when making negative choices. This helps the children realize that they do have self-control and are responsible for their actions and behaviors. It is in their control whether they are recognized for making good choices. The ladder moves to all of the special area classes when they go so they have opportunities all over the school to make great choices.
Making it to the top of the chart is not easy, but it is definitely attainable. The children will start each day on green. Green is great. It means that your child is behaving as expected. Sometimes your child demonstrates exceptional behaviors and goes above and beyond what is expected and may end their day on blue. Moving to yellow means that the child may have broken a classroom rule and it is kind of like a warning for them to turn their behavior around. The Red level is if a student continues to break the classroom rules OR has demonstrated a major safety concern. The following are the colors and what they represent:
Blue – Going Above and Beyond what is expected
Green - Doing what is expected
Yellow – Warning/time to make a change
Red – Continues to break rule or unsafe behavior
At Jackson, we also reward those children who are doing a great job at following the Tiger Truths by rewarding them with yellow Tiger Ticket. The children then put their names on the ticket and the ticket goes in the classroom bucket. At the beginning of every week, the PBIS team picks a ticket each week from each classroom for a special prize. Each class also has a chance to earn a Purple Tiger Ticket. For example, if another teacher sees a class walking very quietly down the hall, they can give that class a purple ticket or if they are really good at lining up at recess. After a certain amount, the class as a whole will earn a reward. Each classroom is different with the amount of purple Tiger Tickets that are required, but some of the rewards are Pajama Day, Extra Recess, extra IPad time, etc.
At home, you can foster these positive behaviors that are expected at school by talking about the positive things that happened at school and ask about how they use their Tiger Truths. We are lucky here at Jackson that all of the students use their Tiger Truths on a daily basis and are great role models for each other. So, thank you to you, parents, for sharing your amazing children with us. We really are the lucky ones!
Mrs. Everhart and Mrs. Martin
I am pleased to announce that we are able to have Winter Concerts on December 15th. The Kindergarten sing is at 2:15 pm. The First Grade sing is at 1:00 pm. Grades 2 and 3 together are at 10:30 am. The 4th and 5th grades combined concert is at 9 am. All concerts will be at Jackson Elementary school in the Multipurpose room. Students have been excited to come into the music room this year and be able to sing! They are also enjoying more use of turns on instruments! It has been very enjoyable getting to know the students better and watching them grow musically. Thank you for sending such eager learners!
Families are able to see music class with me as a separate tab on Seesaw and students are also all connected in quavermusic.com to see lessons in class or at home. We have been working on rhythm and notation to begin with.
Ask your child what their favorite song or book is so far this year from music class.
Brandi Hawley, email@example.com
The start to this school year has looked a little different, however, Jackson students have done an awesome job at focusing on learning. At this time, we have use of the gym, all classes will be held outside as much as possible with the exception of rainy days. We have practiced our soccer skills and will begin to play higher level games including 4 on 4 soccer games. When soccer is finished, classes will be using frisbees for some fun games and some rounds of frisbee golf. Please help your students prepare for the changing weather. Students will find it helpful to have gym shoes to change into, because the morning grass can be wet. Welcome back to all and keep on moving.
