JPS Optional Social-Emotional Resources K-6

Parents of K-6th grade students,
During this extended time off, we at Jenison Public Schools want to partner with families to find ways to help support your child’s emotional state during this unexpected time away from school.  The activities below are not required but are opportunities to do some things your child might love, try
something new or practice important life skills. Have fun and make some memories along the way! Be a Wildcat!

Together, We Are Jenison!
