"What should I do?" Some parents may be running out of answers to this question with kids being at home all the time. Here's a good website to check out for ideas: https://whatonearthshouldidowithmykids.com/adventure/build-a-recycled-newspaper-fort.
Check out the "Online Learning" banner on the Jackson Heights website (jhcobras.net).
McKenzie McMahon and Jason Bosley have worked hard on their woods projects from Mr. Childs' class at home during continuous learning. They both have made something wonderful they will have for a long time. Well done, Jason & McKenzie!

NO SCHOOL on April 10 and 13 just as it says on the school calendar. Enjoy some quality family time and take a break from continuous learning! Happy Easter, Cobras!

Continuous Learning starts today! Parents remember you have the right to make this work for your family. If you can't do everything, that's okay. We hope we have given you the options and resources to fit your needs and abilities as a family. We're available if you need help.
Good words to remember in this announcement! Remember less is more, there are many different ways for children to learn, and don't be afraid to choose fun.
All of us are trying to find a "new norm" with working from home and starting online school. Parents, we know you're juggling lots of things right now like devices for multiple people in the home. All 3 offices are open Monday and Tuesday for questions. Teachers are available too. We are here to help! We are Cobra Strong!
There was an AR update over Spring Break and we have worked out a few glitches we were experiencing. If you have children continuing AR tests during Continuous Learning, make sure you are accessing the Renaissance website through the link on our Jackson Heights website. You will not be able to log-in otherwise. Go to jhcobras.net, then click Menu, then go to Parents, then click Accelerated Reader HomeConnect. You can login from there!
Congrats to the 2020 JHHS NHS inductees!
We love our students! We are Cobra Strong!
