Hello from the JCC Middle School!
I hope everyone is staying safe and relaxing while enjoying summer break. Before we know it the beginning of school will be here; granted I am not exactly sure what that will look like yet thanks to COVID 19. I do want to let everyone know about what's been taking place this summer within the middle school.
We will have one new staff member joining us this year: Mrs. Amanda Voss. A Jackson County native and former teacher at Round Lake Brewster, Mrs. Voss will be a great addition to our team. Some 6th grade Science classes and some 7th grade Social Studies are where you'll be able to find her come this fall. We are excited to have Mrs. Voss join our team as great things are on the horizon!
As we continue on our whole learner-centered learning approach at the middle school you will see some changes to programming while others still remain the same. The Husky Way Midmester program will continue and is entering its third year. We will continue to have eight days in the fall and eight days in the spring to experience some project-based, real world classes/skills. One of the new items to help us on our whole learner approach is inquiry based learning. This is where students are encouraged to explore, ask questions and share ideas vs the standard teacher delivering 100% of the content and the students sitting and reciting the material. Staff will be implementing opportunities for students to practice this important skill and learning tool throughout the school year.
I am eager to start the 2020-2021 school year as it's going to be a great one. As always, if you have any questions please give me a call at 662-6625 or email at Chris.Naumann@jccschools.com.
