Kindergarten Gingerbread Scavenger Hunt
This month’s fifth-grade student ambassadors created a gingerbread baby scavenger hunt for our kindergarten students. Inspired by the book The Gingerbread Man - Loose in the School by Laura Murray, the fifth graders designed “missing” posters and clues. The clues led the groups of children around to the library, art room, gym, office, etc., until they found the gingerbread baby back in their own classrooms. Thank you to the Jenkins PTO for donating a gingerbread toy prize for each student to take home.

December has been a very busy month at Jenkins with final unit projects, concerts, classroom celebrations, and lots of laughter. Our classrooms are bustling learning places with busy children learning and growing every day. As we head into our winter vacation, our staff wishes everyone a safe and relaxing holiday season with family and friends. School reopens on Tuesday, January 3, 2023, as we head into a happy new year!

5th Grade Band Performs at the Winter Concert
Jenkins families enjoyed the festive songs and instrumental music performance at our Winter Concert. Our fourth and fifth graders also performed at an assembly for all of our students which is a wonderful glimpse of musical opportunities to come as they continue to grow at Jenkins. Thank you to Ms. Counter and Ms. DaSilva for their expert instruction in the vocal and instrumental arts!
Fourth Grade Showcases Endangered Animal Research
All of our fourth-grade students in Mrs. Corcoran, Mrs. True, and Mrs. LaMountain’s classes invited their caregivers to learn about their endangered animals. Each student researched a unique endangered animal, created an information board, and produced a persuasive video to encourage the protection of their endangered animal.
