Transitional Kindergarten at Jackson Ave. visits Antarctica via Skype

Jackson Avenue Visits Antarctica

Heather Dion's Transitional Kindergarten class at Jackson Avenue Elementary School took a digital field trip to visit Adelie Penguins of Antarctica on January 14th. The field trip was conducted from the comforts of the Livermore classroom using Skype video conferencing. Jean Pennycook, an embedded scientist who studies the behavior of the Adelie Penguins, took the class on a tour of her field site and answered questions about the Penguin's habitats, biology and behavior. Heather was supported in the endeavor by Julie Janzen. Ms. Janzen is a Technology Integration Specialist funded by the Measure G Parcel Tax.

SBAC Parent Guidelines for Grades 3-5

Our new state testing results will be coming out this Fall.  We will analyze the results and continue to focus on the needs of all students and support programs.  As with all standardized tests, the results will be utilized to make programmatic and instructional decisions about students’ learning.  Per the State, the ELA and Mathematics tests are too fundamentally different for the old exams to make comparisons between old scores and new.  These new scores are best thought of as a baseline or a starting point.

Please take a look at the  “Test Scores” section of the District website (click on Test Scores for direct link or go to www.livermoreschools.com) for additional information on the assessments. Also, please click on the “SBAC Parent Guide for Grade 3-5” for more information.

Jackson Ave. Elementary Awarded as Healthier US School

Result of Collaboration with Kaiser Permanente and Campus Catering

On June 10, 2015, the Jackson Avenue Elementary School community - including students, teachers, administrators, parents and staff - all gathered in the multi purpose room for a fun filled ceremony. Tricia Barnes of USDA presented Principal Shari Johnston with the Healthier US Schools Challenge Bronze Award. Barbara Lee, Director of campus catering also received a special award from the USDA for her commitment and dedication as Director of Campus Catering. Both Principal Johnston and Director Lee were honored with a Certificate of Congressional Recognition from Congressman Eric Swalwell. Trustee Anne White, Superintendent Kelly Bowers and members of her Cabinet were all present. The ceremony featured student performances and an interactive dance in which everyone (including guests!) participated. Congratulations to Jackson Avenue Elementary!

Jackson Avenue Elementary School was awarded the Healthy Active Stingrays grant from Kaiser Permanente for the 2013/14 school. As a result of this grant, they were able to hire a Health and Wellness Coordinator to facilitate a running club before school and after school, conduct cooking classes for students and their parents, and install a hydration station. These programs combined with Livermore’s health conscious Campus Catering Department, laid the foundation for this nationally recognized award; the Healthier US Schools Challenge.
