Just so everyone is aware, Jewell School is still in session this week, October 16-20. The governor's order did not affect our operation at this time.
11/10/20 Thanksgiving is nearing; a perfect time to learn about Native Americans in Social Studies! This week we focused on a handful of North American tribes. Did you know that the dream catcher is believed to have originated from the Ojibwa Chippewa tribe (Canada)? When placed above a child’s bed, the good dreams will flow through, while bad ones get trapped in its web like feature. Bad dreams would then burn away by the morning’s light. Sweet Dreams 2nd Graders! 💤
In honor of Veterans Day, the Jewell High School Wind Ensemble is proud to present two musical selections thanking all who have served our country in the United States Armed Forces during times of war and peace.

This week we are learning about sensory tools. Sensory tools are intended to promote regulation, improve focus, and increase participation, therefore enabling your child to be available for learning! Sensory toys are specially-made toys for children to help them develop their physical and mental abilities. It's a way to stimulate any of the five senses which are sight, touch, smell, hearing, and taste. The key to a sensory-informed classroom is that it supports the various sensory needs of the students in the classroom in a way that is as natural as possible. Here are a few of the projects we will be doing in the Elementary. Great to try at home as well!
