Extended Learning Program (ELP)


Dear Parents of ELP Students, 


First of all, I am going to miss seeing your beautiful children every day at Jackson! And I wish you and your family the very best, staying healthy and keeping the students engaged in meaningful learning. 


I have included a literature and writing packet for ELP students in grades 4, 5, and 6: A Greek myth with higher level thinking and writing activities. There are 8 activities, and they can do one a day, which should keep them busy for the next 8 school day. They may create a video or activity on their ipad/laptop, to go with the myth. 


In addition, the 4th grade ELP students started an Adaptations video for their research animal. I’d like them to finish that video on their ipads while they are at home. 


5th and 6th graders: We had a mini Debate Competition at Jackson on Friday, March 13. There were only 9 students present. These students were the winners: 

· 1st Place: KD and Kayden 

· 2nd Place: Shaye and Tina 

· 3rd Place: JJ and Belinda 


I will be available to communicate with you from 10:00-11:00 a.m. You can also email in the evenings if that works better for you.
