Busy Schedule
*As you can see from the dates above, March is shaping up to be a busy month at Jacobson. We are excited to tip-off our reading incentive program with the Book Fair and B-K athletes reading to our classes. The main focus in our classroom will be improving our reading skills and increasing the amount of time we spend reading while having some fun.  For as many reading incentive programs as I’ve taken part in over the years, I can say when students participate fully, their reading improves immensely. We’re looking forward to a great month!
