Dear Jordan Families,
We hope that this 2018-2019 school year was a memorable year for you and your child. I want to take the opportunity to thank you the parents and community for trusting me in leading Jordan Elementary School. It is a great pleasure to be at Jordan meeting students, parents and working with the PTA. As we reach the end of another successful school year, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to our educational community for making this an outstanding year. I feel fortunate to be surrounded by a dedicated and caring staff who work together to provide a learning environment that meets the needs of our students. The Jordan staff will continue their commitment to ensuring an optimal educational environment for each student. We like to say Jordan students are the best, and we thank all of our supportive parents who collaborate with us to ensure success for our children.
As you prepare for summer, please remember to read to and listen to your child read. Ask questions, make predictions, and practice math facts. Encourage your child to write often! Writing stories, letters, journal entries, etc., are great ways to get thoughts organized and put on paper. I also encourage you to have your children read non-fiction texts (magazines, books on animals, biographies, newspapers, and science books) as this is an important 21st century skill. This will lead to more success next year. When we return in August, teachers will be assessing your child. We encourage you to work with your child this summer so they are prepared for the rigor of the following grade level. The El Modena Public Library is open in the summer and has many summer activities for your child.
Through hard work, teamwork, and continuous collaboration with our dedicated teachers and staff, Jordan Scholar Can and Will Succeed! Thank you again and here’s wishing you a happy summer!
Mrs. Lorena Rubio – Principal
