First Days of School

Jenkins sharks were all smiles as they stepped off the bus on the first days of school.

Our first week of school was fun filled with greeting new friends and old and learning new routines.  

Here are some highlights:

Car Rider Dismissal

  • Car riders are now dismissed alphabetically in the library or art room prior to being called to their vehicle.  
  • This keeps siblings together in one place and makes for a more efficient and safe exit from the school.

Fire Drill 

  • Our first fire drill got a huge thumbs up from the Scituate Fire Department.
  • The students and staff exited quickly and were all accounted for in record time.

Lunches and Recess

  • We have five lunches and recesses this year instead of three.  This means that all grade levels have lunch and recess instead of doubling up with another grade.  
  • Kindergarten and first grade are together with our kindergarten assistants and cafeteria hostesses lending extra hands to our youngest students.
