  • 📝Why is Summer Bridge Literacy Camp a priority?
    Jefferson Parish Schools is committed to ensuring that all students are reading on level by 3rd grade. We know that students who are not fluently reading on level will struggle as they progress in grade level and content becomes more difficult. Providing opportunities for students to engage in literacy learning over the summer allows for continued support for our students to ensure they are on track in their literacy development.
    The Louisiana Department of Education is requiring that all 3rd-grade students are screened utilizing the DIBELS Literacy Screener. Additionally, any 4th-grade student who scored Basic or below on their 2023 LEAP ELA Assessment were also screened utilizing the DIBELS Literacy Screener. Because this is a requirement, Jefferson Parish has planned to have a spot for every eligible student in our Summer Bridge Literacy Camp.
     
    ✏️3rd Grade: Students were screened in fall, winter, and spring using the DIBELS assessment. If a child scored below or well-below grade level, a notification was sent via parent letter, and a literacy plan was implemented.
     
    ✏️4th Grade: Students were screened in winter and spring using the DIBELS assessment. If a child scored below or well below grade level, a notification was sent via parent letter, and a literacy plan was implemented.
     
    📝How can we support your child?
    By attending Summer Bridge Literacy Camp, your child will receive over 30 hours of reading instruction. Additionally, we will continue to assess, monitor, and screen your child’s reading levels as part of their literacy plans.
    The Louisiana Department of Education also offers literacy tutoring through the Steve Carter Literacy Tutoring Program. To participate in the program, families must register their student using their Louisiana Department of Education Student ID, obtained from their school.
     
    📝What if a child does not attend Summer Bridge or participate in 30 hours of required learning?
    A student qualifying for summer literacy interventions who fails to participate in the program but scored Basic or higher on the ELA portion of the most recent LEAP assessment may be promoted to the next grade level.
    Per LDOE guidance, it is required and there will be a meeting, where all data is reviewed at the beginning of the school year to determine whether retention or another option for additional student support is in the best interest of the student.
     
    If you have any specific questions regarding Summer Bridge, please contact your child’s principal.

    📝¿Por qué el campamento de alfabetización Summer Bridge es una prioridad?
    Las Escuelas Parroquiales de Jefferson se comprometen a garantizar que todos los estudiantes lean a su nivel al llegar al tercer grado. Sabemos que los estudiantes que no leen con fluidez a un nivel tendrán dificultades a medida que avanzan en el nivel de grado y el contenido se vuelve más difícil. Brindar oportunidades para que los estudiantes participen en el aprendizaje de alfabetización durante el verano permite brindarles apoyo continuo para garantizar que estén encaminados en su desarrollo de alfabetización.
    El Departamento de Educación de Luisiana exige que todos los estudiantes de tercer grado sean evaluados utilizando el evaluador de alfabetización DIBELS. Además, cualquier estudiante de cuarto grado que obtuvo una puntuación básica o inferior en su evaluación LEAP ELA de 2023 también fue evaluado utilizando el evaluador de alfabetización DIBELS. Debido a que este es un requisito, la Parroquia de Jefferson ha planeado tener un lugar para cada estudiante elegible en nuestro Campamento de Alfabetización Summer Bridge.
     
    ✏️3er grado: los estudiantes fueron evaluados en otoño, invierno y primavera utilizando la evaluación DIBELS. Si un niño obtuvo una puntuación inferior o muy inferior al nivel de grado, se envió una notificación a través de una carta a los padres y se implementó un plan de alfabetización.
     
    ✏️4to grado: los estudiantes fueron evaluados en invierno y primavera utilizando la evaluación DIBELS. Si un niño obtuvo una puntuación inferior o muy inferior al nivel de grado, se envió una notificación a través de una carta a los padres y se implementó un plan de alfabetización.
     
    📝¿Cómo podemos apoyar a su hijo?
    Al asistir al campamento de alfabetización Summer Bridge, su hijo recibirá más de 30 horas de instrucción de lectura. Además, continuaremos evaluando, monitoreando y examinando los niveles de lectura de su hijo como parte de sus planes de alfabetización.
    El Departamento de Educación de Luisiana también ofrece tutoría de alfabetización a través del Programa de tutoría de alfabetización Steve Carter. Para participar en el programa, las familias deben registrar a su estudiante utilizando su identificación de estudiante del Departamento de Educación de Luisiana, obtenida en su escuela.
     
    📝¿Qué pasa si un niño no asiste a Summer Bridge ni participa en las 30 horas de aprendizaje requerido?
    Un estudiante que califica para intervenciones de alfabetización de verano y que no participa en el programa pero obtuvo una puntuación Básica o superior en la parte de ELA de la evaluación LEAP más reciente puede ser promovido al siguiente nivel de grado.
    Según la guía del LDOE, es obligatorio y habrá una reunión donde se revisarán todos los datos al comienzo del año escolar para determinar si la retención u otra opción de apoyo estudiantil adicional es lo mejor para el estudiante.
    Si tiene alguna pregunta específica sobre Summer Bridge, comuníquese con el director de su hijo.

  • The Student Council is a student-led organization that was created to make sure student voices are heard and prioritized. The students participate in a fun campaigning process, give speeches, and are elected by their peers (K-8) to represent them throughout the school year. 

    They participate in fundraising, organizing school events, and constantly encourage students to be the best versions of themselves all school year long. Oftentimes, they meet with the administration to discuss important issues, and look for solutions to problems that arise in our community. 
     
    Our candidates are students that exemplify what it means to be a Soaring Eagle. They lead with honesty and integrity.

Then, based on a small list of requirements, students participate in the application process. This application consists of questions that allow candidates the opportunity to reflect on why they want to participate in The Students' Government Association, and also what qualities they have to be a great leader for all students. Students campaigned and worked on their election speeches. Students were given 2 weeks to prepare speeches and convince their peers why they would make a great leader.

The goal of the student council is to create an environment where student voices are not only heard but considered in the learning process.
