All About Flag Corps
This year, student volunteers from 4th-6th grades have made sure our US and Arizona flags are flying high at the front of the school. Mrs. Walters, 6th grade, and Mrs. Pe-ters, 1st grade, are our Flag Corps advisors.
At the beginning of the year, they recruit students who commit to respectfully handling the raising and lowering of the flags each school day. Students are trained on how to properly handle folding and raising the flags by members of the Hamilton Jr. ROTC. Thanks, Flag Corps, for your commitment to patriotism!
Fantastic Flyers Assembly Coming Up!
On Friday, January 27th, we will have our second Fantastic Flyer Awards assembly of the school year. This assembly recognizes one girl and one boy from each classroom at Jacobson for aca-demic growth and/or demonstrating strong character traits. Those students will receive an invitation to take home so that family members may attend the assembly and join in the cele-bration, too.
Our Fantastic Flyers will receive a certificate and a t-shirt in recognition of their successes during the second quarter of the school year.
The assembly begins promptly at 7:30 a.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room. Way to go Jets!

Kindergarten-3rd grade students took home the results of their DIBELS testing earlier this week. Please check your student’s backpack! DIBELS stands for Dynamic Indications of Basic Early Literacy Skills. It’s a measure of phonelogical awareness, fluency and compre-hension. If you have any questions, please email your child’s teacher.
