YOU CAN ALWAYS FILL A BUCKET

"Crawford A Caring School Community"
Bucket Fillers is a school wide program to help build unity among classmates, peers, neighbors, and staff. It was introduced and is coordinated by our school Guidance Counselor and Anti-Bullying Specialist Ms. Herold. The incentive revolves around core values of Respect, Responsibility, Self-Awareness, Caring and Kindness. Students and staff have the opportunity to complete a form describing an act of kindness and respect someone did for another. Forms are chosen from our school  bucket weekly and read during morning announcements. Those who are recognized come to the office and select a reward for their kindness and effort. So as you go thru your day ask yourself, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? Your reward could be right around the corner.

NEW!
Jackson School District Curriculum Online

 

We are proud to announce the launch of a new website that has a searchable database of the approved curriculum in the Jackson School District.

This resource, known as the
Rubicon Atlas Curriculum Program, provides public access to our most up-to-date curriculum, including overviews of content by grade level, unit summaries and the essential questions students are expected to be able to answer upon completion of each unit.

To get started, click on the icon above. Select the “Browse’’ tab to see a list of courses, or begin searching by grade and subject on your own.

For now, the site features our complete curriculum in the areas of English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Physical Education and Health and World Language. This site will be a living database that will be updated as we update our curriculum to be fully aligned with state standards. (e.g. Science, Music, Art, Business, Technology).

We are proud of our curriculum and we hope you will enjoy being able to take a first-hand look at all the ways we strive to help students excel.

Principal's Message

April 29, 2016


Hello Crawford-Rodriguez Families,



During the month of April and May, our students will again be taking the PARCC and NJASK Science state assessments. We encourage you to visit the district’s “Understanding Assessments and Grading’’ resource page, which has a host of information about the PARCC and other assessments – including:


·        The full testing calendar for each school;

·        A list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ);

·        Sample tests, videos and more.

 

This page also includes our recent and upcoming grading and report card changes. The PARCC testing dates and other testing dates are also available on the calendars on our district and school websites.

The New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge Science (NJASK Science) is a state test given to students in grades 4 and 8 throughout New Jersey.  These tests were developed to evaluate the achievement of students within the context of New Jersey’s Core Curriculum Content Standards in the area of Science. A parent information guide from the NJDOE will be sent home with your child the week of April 11, 2016. 

As I’m sure you are aware, a child will perform more successfully on a test if he/she has proper rest, good nutrition, and arrives to school on time. Your special attention to these areas will help ensure your child has his or her best chance for success!
