A Message from Mr. Tuite, Principal...
❏ Welcome to a new school year - we improve and grow!

As we get ready for the start of the 2015-2016 school year, just a reminder that our new school hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:10 p.m. The Jackson | Mann
is excited to join the national movement of Extended Learning Time this year. By studying schools throughout the US that had significantly higher achievement than schools in the same district, the National Center for Time and Learning determined that expanding the school day is critical in providing a high-quality, rigorous education. An extended day means more time for individualized attention, more time to offer challenging enrichment programs, and more time to expose children to worlds outside of their community. Look for more details soon as we begin this program toward growing and improving the opportunities for all our students and our teachers. Thank you. Andy Tuite, Principal.
New Schedules and Activities:
Our new school day will be from
9:30 a.m. to 4:10 p.m, which is 40 minutes longer than the traditional school day in Boston. A team from Jackson | Mann has spent the last several months looking at student data, assessing the needs of our school community, and engaging stakeholders to design a schedule that will enhance the lives of children and teachers. Our overarching focus will be to offer more and varied opportunities for our children. In addition to school based offerings, we are partnering with the West End Boys and Girls Club to offer additional activities. All students in Grades 1-8 will visit the West End House accompanied by Jackson | Mann staff 1-2 times each week. Additionally, compared to last year, students will have more time for academic classes as well and teachers will have more time to collaborate and plan together.

Participating in Extended Learning Time is just one way in which Jackson | Mann is working to prepare the children of Boston for success in careers, college, and beyond. We look forward to taking this step together in the coming year!

Math Team winnersCelebrating our learning...
On Monday, June 8th, just before the end of the 2015 school year, the Jackson | Mann K-8 School took part in the Math Rocks competition at the Boston Teachers Union. The competition included teams from 35 Boston Public Schools. Our teams captured first place in the team competitions for both elementary and middle levels! Our students also placed first individually at Grade 5 - Alex Chou, Grade 6 - tie between Isabella Massarelli and Daniel Kwong, and a second place finish in Grade 8 for Arslan Ayaz. Fabulous work by the J-M's teams! Thanks to Ms. Lewis and Ms. Joyce for coordinating this event at the school level.
