    The Class of 2030:  It all Begins with Kindergarten Open House!
    We welcomed a record num-ber of parents and future Kin-dergarten students during our Open House this week.  The evening began with Ms. Wittbrodt leading the Chorus Club in singing the Jacobson school song before our future students headed to the Kinder classrooms to work on a fun project with the teachers.  Mrs. Yirku, Mrs. Wolf, Mrs. Merillat, Ms. Wittbrodt, and Mrs. Dannenfeldt all discussed the Kinder program with parents. Here’s looking forward to next year’s littlest Jets!


    Dream Day at the Phoenix Open
    Jacobson Jets from Ms. Hender-son's fifth grade class had the morning of a lifetime!  The Phoenix Open hosts a studentoriented event called, “Dream Day” each year for various schools in the Valley. This year, Henderson’s Heroes were picked!  Students were treated with some swag gold gear before participating in a junior golf clinic at the TPC Champions Course. Probably the highlight of the day was meeting PGA great Bubba Watson and Arizona Cardinals player, Larry Fitzgerald!  Students were given an opportunity to ask him some questions, and one Henderson Hero, DJ Harris, told Larry that he was HIS hero for being a great guy!  The students finished up with lunch before heading back to the classroom.  Here’s to making physical activity fun!


    Outstanding Jets Recognized
    Wednesday night, three of our Jets were recognized by CUSD Superintendent, Dr. Ca-mille Casteel, at an awards ceremony at the Chandler Center for the Arts. Family and friends were on hand, in addition to a small, but mighty cheering Jets crowd. Jets fly with pride!

    Michelle Merillat, Media Specialist—Apple Achievement Award
    Michelle Merillat is an indispensable member of our Jacobson Jet team! Her dedication to students, staff and Jacobson families shows in everything she does. Michelle com-pletely transformed the library and computer lab making both student focused. She be-gins the school year by handling all textbook needs, a massive job in and of itself. She is proactive in supporting computer-based testing by working with students on various computer skills. This helps our students focus on what they know during testing, rather than how to use a keyboard. Michelle has definitely made a difference in our students’ performance. It’s for these reason, and many, many more, that we nominate Michelle Merillat for the Triple A Award.

    Kristen Thurmond, Space Explorers Coordinator—CUSD Outstanding Volunteer
    Kristen Thurmond is a Parent Extraordinaire. This mom of two Jacobson Jets took over coordinating the Space Explorers Club, which is our biggest club with 515 members and over 120 volunteers. Kristen has mapped out lesson plans and made sure each of our 37 classrooms has enough parent volunteers, in addition to volunteer engineers from Or-bital. She will oversee the grand finale, a springtime rocket launch on the playground whereby students actually launch the rockets they’ve built.
    As if this wasn’t enough, Kristen also volunteers in the classrooms and for Art Master-piece. She is tremendously appreciated by the Jacobson Jets family!

    Sydney Osborne, Student—Outstanding Superintendent Citizenship Award Winner
    Sometimes, students are nominated because of a specific achievement. However, we’ve nominated 6th grade Jacobson Jet, Sydney Osborne, because she stands out as just an all-around Renaissance Girl. A high-achieving work ethic doesn’t get in the way of her delightful sense of humor. She truly enjoys learn-ing and is eager to try new things. Sydney is at ease with people and she converses comfortably with her peers as well as the adults around campus. Every day, Syd-ney arrives at school with a smile and enthusiasm.
    Sydney could grow up and do any-thing, but music is her passion. She plays saxophone in addition to singing in choir. After winning “The Voice,” Sydney plans on be-coming a music teacher.


    Pizza and Frozen Yogurt for a Good Cause
    Look for flyers sent home with your students for next PTO Eat-Out-Night on Tuesday, Feb-ruary 7 at MOD Pizza and Menchies on Arizona Avenue and Ocotillo. Each location will donate 20% of the sales back to the PTO!
