Welcome to Room 5!

Hello, nice to meet you!

My name is Jessica Young and this is my 12 year at Ackerman and this is my 6th year as a teacher. Ms. A.G and Ms. S.B have been with me the past 5 years and Ms. Heather is joining us this year. We are excited to have 3 returning students and 3 new students joining us! We look forward to working with your child and can’t wait to see the progress all students make this year!

Daily Notes/Supplies

Thank you to all of the families that have sent in Kleenex and Ziploc bags! Each student will have a folder and notebook sent home in their book bag each night. Please check the notebook every night. We will write daily notes telling you about your child’s day and if we are in any need of additional supplies specifically for your child such as: ➢ Diapers ➢ Wipes ➢ Snacks

Family Homework

At the beginning of every month, we will send home a monthly newsletter that will include a “Family Homework” project. Family Homework is meant to be a fun, hands-on, project for your child to complete with anyone in the home. We will also send all supplies necessary to complete the activity. The students enjoy returning their work, having the teachers discuss their work with them, and seeing the work displayed on our Family Homework Bulletin Board. Please help us reach our goal of 100% family participation!
