Goodbye January, hello February! February, may you bring smiles and joy to all the faces in Jefferson School!
Footprints for Life™ is a research-based primary prevention program that builds assets and teaches important life skills to students in grades two and three. Through the use of puppets and stories that feature “real life” situations experienced by a children’s soccer team.
The program offers many opportunities for students to practice the new skills they have learned in a fun and non-threatening way.
The goal of Footprints for Life is to help young children build a strong foundation of life skills rooted in key social competencies. The social competencies that Footprints addresses are planning and decision-making practice, interpersonal skills, cultural competence, peer pressure, and peaceful conflict resolution — assets identified as promoting positive attitudes and behaviors.

” Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out.”– John Wooden
We’re so excited to be back in the classroom and slipping back into our routines, working with one another, and helping your children grow mentally, emotionally, and socially. I’d like to express my gratitude to the parents and grandparents for working so hard and working together with me for the benefit of the children while we were virtual.
This month, we will be investigating and learning about “Clothing”. As we study clothes, we will learn concepts and skills in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology. We will learn about all different types of clothing, what type of clothing we use in each season, how to clean clothes, different sizes, and many more things all related to clothing.
In addition, we will discuss the Month of Love & Black History…We will discuss friendships, differences, and similarities. We will also continue working on our numbers, colors, shapes, etc. through various activities that will keep our children in love with learning. Let's celebrate the month of LOVE!!!
