Dear JFS families,

On behalf of the John Fuller staff, I am very excited to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year here at JFS!

The staff and I are looking forward to working with each of you to help your child reach his/her full potential each day. Our collaboration (families, staff, and community) is critical; open communication is a must! Parents are always welcome to observe and volunteer. Please check in with the office, as to which days, times, and classrooms need volunteers.

At John Fuller, we have high expectations for student learning and behavior. You can soon find our updated behavior expectations in our Family Handbook, on the website, and posted in all classrooms. Please let us know if you or your child (ren) have any questions regarding these expectations.  The JFS Leadership Team with input from all stakeholders has revised our procedures in order to provide more clarity.

John Fuller is happy to continue using the Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop models in K-6 to teach literacy. We also implement a workshop model in mathematics. The use of technology, small groups, games, and individualized practice allows students to learn in a variety of ways at various paces. This research-based approach to learning is student-centered and provides students with voice and choice in their learning. Students will be working at both their independent level and instructional level. Students will be reading books of their choice, along with teacher-guided choices. It is our goal that through independent practice, partnerships, books clubs, small group instruction, and conferring, students will not only make progress academically, but love to learn as well! Science and social studies are taught through both an integrated curriculum and a hands-on inquiry-based approach.

I am confident that together as a school community we will have a great year, full of milestones, joy and success. Let us know how we can make your child’s educational experience the best that it can be. We look forward to the 2017-2018 school year together!


Warmly,

Mrs. Danielle C. Nutting
