What's Happening at JMP

  • Mrs. Marques’ class welcomed April with a poetry celebration!  The 2nd graders spent much time reading, writing and illustrating poems.  They discovered a great poetry mentor in Kenn Nesbitt.  From his website and tutorials, the children learned various poem styles and features.   Let’s all celebrate National Poetry Month…Keep a Poem in Your Pocket…on Thursday, April 30!

    In support of World Autism Awareness Month, James Madison Primary School staff and students showed support by showcasing the most recognized symbol for autism- the puzzle piece!   All JMP students and teachers “lit it up blue” by decorating puzzle pieces and displaying them in a blue hallway to represent acceptance and awareness for autism.  The Self-Contained Autistic classroom teachers (Miss Markowitz, Mrs. Peltz, and Mrs. Gibilisco) visited all second grade classes to spark discussions, answer questions, and educate students about autism.  Students showed respect and compassion during the story, and were engaged and interested to learn more about children with autism.

    In Social Studies Mrs. Floersch’s class is learner about how our world has changed over time.  We are learning about how communication, schools, transportations and our communities have changed over time. To show our understanding of how things change over time, we create our own individual time lines.  We had a great time creating and sharing or time lines, showing how we have changed from the past to the present.
