Jacobs Primary School
It is exciting to be a part of a new community as I welcome you to the upcoming 2013-2014 school year. Jacobs has the unique opportunity to expand this year, welcoming the addition of the 3rd grade. There are many new faces at Jacobs and I do encourage you to please come up to the school and introduce yourself, be a part of the new beginning, and to be a partner in your student's education.
The staff and I have been working hard over the summer to discuss the kind of school we hope to create at Jacobs, and it comes down to family. As we continue to work towards our building goals, we do so together; valuing each other and the expertise that everyone brings to the table. You too are a part of that family as you have a lot to contribute to our school climate and success. We look forward to your partnership and communication.
It is great to be back in my hometown of Findlay. I am a proud graduate of Bigelow Hill Elementary, Glenwood Junior High School, and Findlay High School. I attended the University of Toledo after graduation and lived and worked in Toledo until I was given the opportunity to come back to my roots as Assistant Principal of Central/Donnell for the past two years. My family (husband Steve and two children; Xavier and Arabella) completed our transition this past year, moving to Findlay in November. We are happy to be part of the Findlay community and close to my family.
We have exciting things planned for the upcoming school year, and look forward to working with you and your children. This is their time to grow, learn, and to shape their futures. I encourage you to come to the school and talk with the staff about the things we will be working on and our focus.
Go Trojans! Proud to be a part of the tradition!

Third Grade Reading Guarantee
Recent legislation strengthened the Third Grade Reading Guarantee to give greater emphasis to reading instruction and intervention in the early grades. Through this initiative, school districts and community schools will diagnose reading deficiencies in students at grades kindergarten through three, create individualized reading improvement and monitoring plans and provide intensive reading interventions. The new law also includes additional requirements for school districts and community schools. (Source: Ohio Department of Education)
