From the Principal's - Mr. Vue and Ms. Walker
Dear Families and Students,
Welcome to Jenny Lind School and the 2020-2021 school year! We are so ecstatic to have you as part of the Jenny Lind family. Our school year s Tuesday, September 8th for students in grades 1-5 and Thursday, September 10th for Kindergarteners and students in High-5. Even though all schools in Minneapolis are ing with Phase 2 of Distance Learning, our on-line school hours will remain 7:30am-2:00pm. We look forward to a productive and engaging year. We will build on and enhance the creative and innovative strategies we implemented last Spring to ensure all students achieve to their fullest potential. We are pleased to welcome several new staff members to Jenny Lind, including our new Assistant Principal, Mercedes Walker. We hope your summer has gone well and you are excited for the beginning of the new school year.
This year will bring different challenges and opportunities for the staff and families of Jenny Lind to partner together to provide our students with an engaging and high-quality school experience. We understand the importance of a strong home-school connection and we are confident that by working together, we can make sure every child's social, emotional, and academic needs are met.
As parents or guardians, we rely on your help in educating your child. You can support your child's learning by making sure that he or she comes to his or her Seesaw classroom every day, on time, and ready to learn. You can also provide support by encouraging your child to meet his or her responsibilities in class, and with independent and extended learning opportunities. Your participation in meetings and other school activities is also vital to your child's success. We will be in constant communication with you and look forward to getting to know our families and parents throughout the year.
We would like to remind everyone of Jenny Lind School's Back to School Family Engagement Nights, which will be in our school parking lot. Students in High-5 to 2nd grade will come on Wednesday, September 2nd from 4:00pm-6:00pm. Students in grades 3-5 will come on Thursday, September 3rd from 4:00pm-6:00pm. Please come and meet your child's teachers and Administration, and pick up school supplies. We look forward to seeing everyone at one of the Family Engagement nights and on the first day of school. Together, we will have a wonderful year!
Mr. Vue, Principal
Ms. Walker, Assistant Principal
