    January Jefferson Charger Family Newsletter

    From the Principal

    Happy New Year, Jefferson families! I have always loved the “fresh start” feeling that comes with the month of January. I always told my students, “The first part of the school year is behind you. Now we get to start over. If you didn’t like the way something was going, you can work with your teacher, classmates, and family to change it!” I hope you’ll share this approach with your own children. As we return from break, teachers and other staff will be reteaching routines and expectations, such as Zoom and work completion. I encourage you to do the same thing at home as you continue to support your child’s learning, and to partner closely with your child’s teacher.

    There’s a great opportunity for families to learn more about i-Ready this Wednesday, Jan. 6. Everett Public Schools will host a webinar in English, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, and Arabic at 6:00 p.m. You can learn about how to motivate and recognize student progress with lessons at home, as well as tips and other resources. I was involved in planning this, and it is going to be great! I hope you’ll join us by registering here. You’ll find a flier with more information included in this newsletter.

    On Jan. 11, we will welcome long-term guest counselor Jennifer Byrne covering Ms. Ortiz-Self’s legislative leave of absence through late April. Though we will miss Ms. Ortiz-Self greatly, she is leaving the program in excellent hands. Please continue to call the office if you or your family need the support of a school counselor, including resources, or you can reach out to Ms. Byrne directly at jbyrne@everettsd.org.

    We don’t yet know what 2021 will bring us, but there are lots of reasons to be hopeful for the year ahead. No matter what may come our way, all Jefferson staff members look forward to continuing to partner with families and caregivers to support students! Please reach out if you have questions, concerns, ideas, or needs!

    Thanks for reading, and have a great January!

    Mrs. Kelley
