Mrs. Barnes and Mrs. Sweet helped JLE's first grade parents understand the challenges of the first grade curriculum. The parents who participated did learning activities to help them support their children better.
Mrs. Rutkey and Mrs. Ohl led a group of JLE's kindergarten parents through fun activities to help them understand the educational challenges their children face and give them tools to be more active participants in their children's education.
Mrs. Duryea's first grade class proudly presents a reading of their writings on community helpers. The children wrote and read their writings about doctors, fire fighters, policemen, garbage men and many others. It was an impressive public reading and showing off their writing skills.
JLE is pleased to have the dental van return to serve our children. Special thanks to the dental van staff Corie Mulvaney, Lilly Kahn and Sumit Sehgal.
Mrs. Cincotti and Mrs. Chalavoutis Miller's class took a walking field trip to meet Hudson's community helpers. Their first stop was the fire station followed by a trip to the police station.
The children were very excited to meet our community helpers and we are grateful for the support of our local fire department and our police department.
Dozens of JLE boys and girls are enjoying supervised activity time. But how? It was raining outside today. Because of a special indoor recess initiative by the HCSD board of Ed., the JLE schedule was changed, new playground equipment was purchased and extra staff provided to allow our K-2 children active recess while indoors. The JLE family would like to thank the School Board for all these happy faces!
This past Wednesday the JLE children were amazed by the acrobatic feats, juggling and tumbling skills of the Chinese Acrobatic Team. "When they rode the bikes with one wheel, that's what I really liked," one boy said. Along with the stunts and tricks, the children were treated to stories about the Chinese New Year and other cultural information. The JLE family would like to thank the PTA for bringing such fun and culture to our children.
The JLE PTA went all out this year to give the JLE kids and their parents a fun and spooky night. This year's Halloween Activity Night included a DJ dance party, free photo booth, spooky crafts, party games and hundreds of cowboys, ghosts, superheroes, princesses and pirates. The night ended with cheers and screams of approval from the JLE Kids and their Parents.
"I bought this with little hawks?" One girl said excitedly showing the principal her new sparkle ring. She was just one of dozens of JLE children overwhelmed by the glittering, multicolored array of childhood joy they found on the PBIS Prize Cart that rolled the halls of JLE this week. The prize cart is a new reward component of the JLE PBIS system that recognizes children when they are being safe, respectful and responsible. All during the week the children are given little hawk award tickets for correct hallway behavior, proper behavior during lunch and/or respectful behavior during class and school. At the end of the week the children can redeem their tickets for prizes or save up their tickets for bigger prizes they need more little hawks for. So the children get positive recognition two wonderful ways. They get a little hawk for positive behavior and the chance to redeem little hawks for prizes. In the words of one boy, "I hope someone sees me being safe on playground so that I can get the little hawks to get that elephant," he said pointing to a grey stuffed animal in the cart.
On Tuesday October 20th, the JLE Kids got the chance to be Jr. Firefighters with the help of the Hudson, Stottville and Greenport Fire Stations. Past Fire Chief Paul Beaumont, with the help of Hudson Firefighters, taught the JLE kids to "Stop-Drop-And Roll" if their clothes catch on fire and how to get out of a burning building. The JLE kids were just beaming when they climbed onto any one of the FIVE fire trucks the local fire stations sent to JLE, which thrilled the children. Special Thanks to Past Chief Beaumont and Chief Brisco for their outstanding support of the JLE Kids and their families.
On behalf of the JLE Kids, Mr. Spicer wanted to say thank you to VFW Auxiliary 1314 of Hudson NY for their generous donation of backpacks to the JLE kids. Special thanks to Chelsea Torchia President, Heather Barber Simon, Vice President, Judy Snow Treasurer and Dolores Host, Trustee.
On Monday September 28, Mrs. Sweets and Mrs. Merwin-Domkoski’s 2nd grade classes participated in Columbia County’s Honor A Vet Program. The children heard speeches honoring Army Nurse Mary First Moon while sitting at the desks of the common council and then joined dignitaries and the honor guard outside for the flying of the flag at half mass. “The gun shot salute was very loud,” one second grader said. “But I loved the orange juice they gave us!” JLE is always proud to honor our Vets and all those who serve our country in War & Peace.
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week JLE was filled with great joy with s visit from our grandparents at the annual Grandparents Day Program. The JLE kids proudly showed off their grandparents to their friends and teachers and the grandparents read to, danced and sang with the children. This wonderful event was sponsored by our PTA and we hope to have it every year. View more photos.
