Announcements and Events

Dear Jacobson Families,

Dear Jacobson Families,
January marks the halfway point in our school year.  It is hard to believe we only have 75 school days left!  Every student and every day at school counts.  Each student contributes so much to their class.  When they are absent they can’t contribute!   Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up. School attendance is one of the most important elements of a student’s success at school. 
Below is the attendance percentage by grade level for the month of January.  Our district goals is district  98% : 
Kindergarten  93.72 %
1st grade  92%
2nd grade 95.26 %
3rd  grade 95.18 %
4th  grade 96.09 %
5th grade 94.49%
For the month of February, the grade level  with the highest percentage of student attendance will receive an Otter Pop popsicle reward.  
Please help us build your child’s success  at  school  by ensuring they are at school every day and on time.
Queridos familias Jacobson,
 Enero marca mitad de nuestro año escolar.  Es difícil creer que solamente quedan 75 días para terminar este año escolar!  Cada estudiante y cada día en la escuela cuenta.  Cada estudiante contribuye a su clase.  Cuando están ausentes no contribuyen.   Las ausencias pueden afectar toda la clase si el maestro tiene que tomar mas tiempo para ayudar a los niños que han estado ausentes. Asistencia a la escuela es uno de los elementos más importantes del éxito de un estudiante en la escuela. 
A continuación es el porcentaje de asistencia por nivel de grado para el mes de enero.  Nuestros objetivos de distrito es el distrito de 98%:
 Kinder 93.72%
 1er grado 92%
 2 º grado 95,26%
 3er grado 95.18%
 4ro grado 96.09%
 5 grado 94.49%
Para el mes de febrero, el nivel de grado con el mayor porcentaje de asistencia de los estudiantes recibirán una recompensa de nutria Pop paletas.  
Por favor ayúdenos a construir el éxito de su hijo en la escuela asegurándose de que están en la escuela todos los días y a tiempo.

Universal Breakfast Program  

Jacobson has a universal breakfast program where every child has the opportunity for a free breakfast. Breakfast starts at 7:55 a.m. for kindergartners and 8:05 a.m. for grades 1-5. There is no cost for this breakfast
Student Lunch Dropoff 
If you are dropping off lunch for a student, we ask that all lunches are in the office by 11:15 a.m. regardless of the grade level. We have a pen/post-it for you to mark your Childs lunch. We tell all the students that if you do not have a lunch, please check the office on your way to the cafeteria. We do not call the classrooms to let them know there is a lunch in the office.
Arrival/Dismissal Car Line
At dismissal, all students will proceed through the front gates to the car line up. All bus students will report to the side of the school (Camilia Drive) where the bus pick-up is. Students are not allowed to be picked up on the side of the school. 
  • We are asking parents of 3:00 p.m. students to please wait until 2:50 p.m. to enter the car pick-up line. This gives the parents of 2:30 dismissal time to pick up their students.
  • We are asking kindergarten PM parents to please wait until 3:10 p.m. before getting in the car pick-up line, so that our 3:00 pm students can be picked up.

If cars are in line before their time and during dismissal, it causes a major back up.

Dear Parents and Jacobson Community,
It is truly is a pleasure being able to work with children and teachers every day. Being a parent myself,  I approach each child as if they are my own and work alongside our teachers and yourselves to ensure our children are safe, successful and good citizens.  I am a firm believer that the success of our children depends heavily on the positive relationship between home and school. When students see us working together it gives them since of belonging and the security to try their best.  To ensure our students are successful, communication is key from both sides.  Please be sure to get to know your child’s teacher and give them all possible ways of communicating with you.  Our children’s success depends on it.  I encourage all parents to get involved with our Jacobson Staff Parent Association.  This is just another way for the school and community to partner.
We are here to assist in any manner possible.  Please feel free to stop by, say hello and provide your input.  We believe that a successful school experience can only result from a cooperative effort between you, your child, the Tracy community, and our school.  We need your support and pledge you ours.  We look forward to an exciting and successful school year.
