Thursday evening more than 50 children and their families came together to learn about English Language Arts Games and Math games to help kindergarten and first-graders learn at home. 

The activities and games the parents learned about are design to help their children learn at home and reinforce what the children are taught in school.  These games correspond to the CORE curriculum taught at Jackson Primary School.  

The current curriculum was also discussed with parents so they may better understand their children’s education.

Today was an exciting day for the Jackson Primary first-graders. It is moving up day. They received certificates of continuation from administrators during a ceremony in the Batavia High School auditorium in front of their fellow classmates and cheering families. The students will now move on to John Kennedy Intermediate School and graduate from high school in 2028.

Jackson Primary held its Fall Carnival Friday evening. Students from the school went on a scavanger hunt, ate pizza and drank apple cider. Prizes and candy were given for playing games such as Launch the Frog, Tip a Troll and candy corn bowling. There were also other fun activities like "Tape the Principal to the Wall," pictured below.

With the hard work of all the first-graders and their reading efforts, the animals were able to get back to their normal habitats at the Jackson Zoo today.

Faculty dressed up as zookeepers and animals to put on a closing play and reward students for their reading achievements. With everyone’s help, the zoo was back to normal.

The play was a part of the Parents as Reading Partners program, which began on March 16 with a challenge for students. Faculty put on an opening play showing the zoo animals had gone wild. The animals were eating the wrong foods and living in the wrong places. The zookeepers asked students to help them solve the problem.

To help zoo animals get back to their normal habitat, students were required to read at home for 15 minutes every night. Students had to get a ticket signed by a parent once they completed their reading and return it to school every day.

During the program, the students read a total of 441,000 minutes. For all their effort, they were rewarded with prizes and received a new book to take home at the end of the play.

Heather Landers, first-grade special education teacher, organized the play.

“The program aligned with the curriculum so kids could connect what they were learning in class to the reading,” Landers said. “The kids got excited about reading and loved the play.”

The play was one of many reading incentives students participated in. Other events included a Family Reading Night, Fairytale event and reading with members of the Genesee County Bar Association.

Principal Diane Bonarigo has been thrilled with her students’ reading progress.

“I’m so excited 80 percent of our children are reading at grade level or above,” Bonarigo said. “I have seen the children significantly improve in reading this year.”

Bonarigo hopes children will continue reading and be lifelong learners.

During the week of February 4-8, the Batavia City School District will conduct student registration for students eligible to enter kindergarten for the 2013-2014 school year. Children who will be five years old on or before December 1, 2013, are eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall. 

Jackson Primary Principal Diane Bonarigo says, “The Jackson Primary School staff would like to personally welcome you and your family. Many of you will be experiencing the school for the first time. We recognize how precious your child is and we greatly value how you and your child feel about their new school. We look forward to meeting you soon!”

Registration week will be held at Jackson Primary School between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The school is located at 411 South Jackson Street, and parking is available in the front of the building on South Jackson. For directions or assistance please phone (585) 343-2480 ext. 4000 and ask for Ms. Alice Franck. No appointment is necessary, as staff will be available to meet with you and register your child for the upcoming school year. In addition, our school nurse and counselor will be available to meet with you. The entire registration process may last up to an hour, but will be shorter if your child is currently enrolled in the District’s Universal Pre-Kindergarten program.   

Please bring with you the following required documentation; without them, we cannot register your child. We will make copies of these items and return the originals to you.

a. Birth Certificate

b. Social Security Card

c. Proof of Residency (utility bill, lease, etc.) unless your child is currently enrolled in the Jackson or YMCA UPK program.

d. Immunization Record
