School is a guided daily curriculum to help caregivers
structure 15 minutes each day in a stimulating creative activity with young children.
Jessie's goal in creating the curriculum is to make learning fun by providing easy projects that
nurture critical-thinking skills, literacy, numeracy and
creativity at a young age. Featured: help children learn the
special pride that comes from having made a gift yourself!
Visit "Kid Pages" for materials to explain Lexington's local government to your child (or to a friend)!
When Jessie created the pages Lexington was facing a large budget shortfall and turned to voters to decide whether the majority wished to address the shortfall by raising taxes or cutting programs. Many residents (including Jessie) were just learning how the town's local government worked. Kid Pages provide an overview of the budget process and explain how to participate!
designing these materials, Jessie has stepped up her level of
participation. In 2006 she ran a successful campaign to serve
as a Town Meeting Member. In March 2009 Jessie was elected to
serve a 3-year term as a School Committee member.
