  • I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created a request for my classroom at DonorsChoose.org: Hurricane Harvey Damaged Library Needs Laptops for Group Projects.


    Give to my classroom by August 16 and your donation will be doubled thanks to DonorsChoose.org. Just enter the code RIPPLE on the payment page and you'll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $50).

    If you chip in to help my students, you'll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks.

    Thanks so much,
    Mrs. Jacklitsch

  • AR Point Levels

    In our main hallway, we feature our Red Elementary “AR Stars” on our school AR board. In order for a student’s name to appear on the “AR Stars” board, a student much reach a minimum of 10 AR points. Once this level is achieved, students may level up further once more AR points are achieved, and advance their AR Star forward.
