The Jamestown Public Schools Calendar


Jamestown Public Schools Calendars are essential in helping students plan for academic studies. They reveal the official academic schedule at school and enable students to plan accordingly. A calendar details regular classes, exams, competitions, and holidays so students can plan accordingly.

Love Elementary School students and their parents who are English Language Learners (ELL) will benefit from this program, where a JCLC Home/School Liaison visits participants regularly to engage them in developmentally appropriate early learning activities.

Parent As Teachers (PAT)

Parents as Teachers (PAT) is an evidence-based home visiting model designed to assist families during the crucial early years of children’s development. It’s free and voluntary; its purpose is to provide information, support, and encouragement that parents need for healthy growth and learning among their children. PAT comprises several components, including (1) Personal Visits, (2) Group Connections, (3) Family Activities, and (4) Developmental Screenings, as well as providing referrals for families seeking resources they might require.

Personal visits are monthly meetings held at home between families and Imprints Cares family educators where an Imprints Cares family educator shares age-appropriate child development/parenting information as well as addresses concerns for up to 60 minutes each visit, each session provided in both English and Spanish. Group connections, like parenting groups or presentations facilitated by a parent educator to foster sharing experiences and mutual learning, are designed to break isolation among families while supporting network development.

Family activities offer parents and children opportunities to engage in educational and social activities together – like playgroups or reading groups – which promote interaction between adults and children while providing new ways to engage their children in developmentally appropriate ways. Developmental screenings such as hearing, vision, and developmental assessments help the program identify needed services quickly.

PAT affiliates use a wide range of evidence-based parenting curricula and activities, including the Tools for Success family behavior management system. Foundational Training Guides, PAT Toolkit Cards, and model implementation training materials can also be utilized by PAT affiliates to complement their core curriculum offerings. Parent educators and supervisors receive pre-service training from the Parents as Teachers National Center – this training can take place both online and in person.

Teen Parent Engagement

Parents are an indispensable resource for students, and engaging them in their children’s education is an effective way to improve student outcomes. Parental engagement has been associated with higher grades and test scores, improved behavior and attendance, more enrollment in challenging courses, more robust social skills development, and reduced prevalence of risky behaviors such as substance abuse and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Teen parent engagement programs aim to engage teens in their education by providing resources and support for their parenting roles while creating a sense of community among parents facing similar challenges. Such programs may offer peer mentoring services, training on child development and parenting issues, as well as opportunities to participate in leadership activities. Furthermore, these programs aim to meet the unique needs of teenage parents – such as schedule conflicts, childcare requirements, or transportation concerns that they face daily.

Research indicates that teenage parents can engage effectively in their children’s education despite limitations such as time and financial resources. Furthermore, this parental involvement in schools has been associated with numerous positive results for teens, including improved academic performance and school-based HIV prevention efforts.

Though teen parent engagement has been shown to be beneficial for adolescents, little is known about the most effective strategies for engaging this group. At this web conference, experts discuss what works and doesn’t work when engaging this population, recommendations for optimizing impact, and interviews with Early Head Start teen parents sharing their perspectives about what has and hasn’t worked for them. It is available accessible on the CDC’s website as one resource provided to assist local agencies in devising effective strategies to engage teen parents in HIV prevention in school-based settings.

Parents Activating Children’s Education Results in Success (PACERS)

Parents can be invaluable partners in their children’s educational journey by actively participating in their classroom. One effective method for doing so is attending curriculum nights, parent workshops, and PTO meetings – this will give parents insight into what their child is learning as well as provide a way for them to help with homework assistance and assist with school events like field trips or carnivals.

Parents Activating Children’s Education Results in Success (PACERS) is an evidence-based home visiting program for parents of pre-K through Grade 4 children, which offers fun and developmentally appropriate early learning experiences that foster literacy skills both among children and their parents. Monthly home or school site visits by JCLC liaisons serve as educational partners who help facilitate storytime, art, music, ESL classes, and snacks during this program.

PACERS offers several family engagement programs. One such is After School Amigos, which teaches language and literacy skills development to English Language Learners from K to Grade 4 at Love and Ring elementary schools – this initiative is funded by the New York State Office for Children and Families.

TEAM (Teen Parent Education and Action Movement) is a collaborative partnership among Jamestown Community Learning Council, Jamestown Public Schools, and YWCA of Jamestown to offer Parents as Teachers curriculum as well as various parent-friendly resources for teen parents. Two home visits per month and other enrichment activities such as support groups or workshops.

School district websites also list holidays 2023-2024 on their student pages to aid in the planning of student year plans, making sure no exams or events are missed during that period and that work and personal schedules work better together. It also allows for easier time management between personal and work commitments.

Educational Advocacy and Scholastic Enrichment (EASE)

Many students face barriers that impede their education, such as poverty, homelessness, mental health issues, or substance use disorders. Education advocacy aims to assist children in overcoming these challenges so they can concentrate on learning within classrooms; this may be done via policy advocacy or other methods; in order to become an effective advocate, it’s crucial to have an in-depth knowledge of the current policy landscape.

The Brady Hunter Foundation and Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education, and media company, have joined forces to spread the joy of reading and learning among students at Hawkins Elementary School. Through this partnership, students will have access to select their books – which research indicates will encourage more reading and learning! This program forms part of our overall mission of championing education and inspiring young minds.

Establishing a solid learning foundation is crucial to student achievement. Studies reveal that parents play an integral role in their child’s academic achievements, with studies also showing higher rates of student achievement among families who participate actively in school communities. That’s why Jamestown Community Learning Council (JCLC) offers various family engagement programs to aid students along their educational journey.

These programs aim to enhance student learning and achievement through parental involvement in their child’s classroom. The JCLC hosts events designed to inform attendees about classroom curriculum, extracurricular offerings, and how they can advocate for their child’s education – such as its PACERS initiative, which assigns a liaison from JCLC who will collaborate closely with both students and parents during their high school experience.

The JCLC provides a Parent and Teen Parent Advisory Committee that aids student-centered initiatives designed to boost positive student outcomes, such as parental involvement in Educator as Mentor (EAM) programs or Parent Teacher Conference (PTC) conferences, which promote more excellent academic performance for our students as they transition into college or career studies. Furthermore, its Family and Community Engagement (FACE) program equips families with the skills necessary to become active participants in their children’s education.
