About jettnerkindergarden

I have been happily teaching at Jeffers since 1994. My husband Chad teaches at GHHS and we have 3 amazing children. Connor is 14, Noah is 11 and Kiya is 8. We love to camp and spend time outdoors as much as we can. I am thrilled to be teaching kinder"garden" and am looking forward to watching the children learn and grow!

Happy summer!

Hello families!!

I hope this finds you well with relaxed days, dirty feet and bright smiles. You thought you were finished with me…not that easy! Haha!

I thought I would share with the boys and girls that the caterpillars are out!!! I found 5 baby ones and 2 eggs this morning. They should know what kind of plants to find them on!! Happy hunting!!!

Miss you all! Enjoy the summer breezes!☀️🐛

The end…

I can’t put into words the emotions that I’m feeling today. I want to begin by saying thank you. Your generosity over these past years is indescribable. From volunteering in the classroom to supporting your child at home with school work and supporting me as a teacherI just couldn’t ask for a better group of parents. The amazing gifts that came through the doors today are so appreciated. I am extremely grateful for the thought and effort that went into making it happen. You truly are amazing!

As I hugged each of these kiddos today I was flooded with memories that these years have held. From the death of a parent, to families separating, the birth of siblings, holidays, snow storms, hundreds of books read, smiles, laughter, tears and lots of dancing I couldn’t help but thinking that they are like a family and I just hated to let them go. If I could bottle this up and save it I would. And as hard as it is I can confidently say…they are ready. They are not just ready to fly they are ready to soar! These kids are going to go places and do great things. The world is a better place because of them.

So thank you doesn’t even begin to touch how grateful I am. I hope you know that each and everyday I tried by best to create an environment where they felt comfortable and important. Their spirits and energy are a gift that I will always treasure.

With a heavy I heart I say…when you are ready you need to unsubscribe from this blog as a new group of kindergarten families will be joining in the fall.

Thank you first grade families. Enjoy your summer. I hope it is filled with sunshine, dirty toes, fire flies and picnics. And don’t blink…it’s over before you know it!

Love always,
Jenn😊

Happy Friday!

We have had a busy week!  We continue to work on our Animal’s Life unit in science, double digit addition addition with regrouping in math, writing realistic fiction books and today we began a readers theater script.  I have been working on end of the year assessments and trying to squeeze in some end of the year fun.

Friday, May 23rd is Family Celebration Day.  You may meet your first grader here in the room at 11:45 and take them outdoors for our picnic.  We will all gather at 1:00 and then our performance will begin!  They are asked to wear Laker apparel.

Thursday, May 29th we will be going to the aquatic center for a swim afternoon.  We will leave here at 1:00 and walk over.  If you would like to swim with us please let me know…we still need a few parents.

June 3rd we are celebrating summer birthdays with an all class pizza party at lunch time.

The next 14 days are going to fly by…thank you for sharing your amazing children with me (2 years for many of you).  I’m feeling a little bit like that mother bird right now.  I know its time to let them go but it is really going to hard.  I cant wait to see them soar…they are going to go great places!!!!

Happy Sunny Saturday!!!

Hope this finds you enjoying your amazing kiddos on this great day. Thank you to all of the moms that came to our tea yesterday. They were so excited to share with you all of the crafts that they made especially for you…they just couldn’t wait for you to get there!

It’s crazy to believe that we have 18 days of school left. Where did the time go?

Below you will find a link to the parent input survey if you are interested in submitting information for us to take into consideration when placing your child in their classroom for next year. This survey is for any students going into K-4th.
