Mrs. Jessica Shogreen M.Ed
My name is Jessica Shogreen and I am the Behavior Intervention Teacher at Acton Elementary. I also serve as the Acton PTA Fundraiser Chair. I graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Art, Bachelor’s Degrees in Government, English and Sociology and a Master’s Degree in Education with a focus in Special Education. My post-grad work concentrated on Child Development. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades, as well as Special Education, throughout my career. I am very passionate about teaching and enjoy creating a solid curriculum for the enrichment and benefit of all students. My primary motivation is to create a love of learning, acceptance and inclusion for all students. I am excited to share this new 2020-2021 school year with you at Acton Elementary!
ClassTag - Please download the "ClassTag" app for your Smartphone. I will be using this app for both individual and whole group announcements throughout the year. Directions and more information to follow in your child's "Take Home" folder.
Please check your child's "Take Home Folder" every night and sign their behavior documentation for the day. This isnour first line of communication between school and home.
Also, encourage reading nightly at home. Multiple studies show that reading at home compliments concepts learned at school and creates stronger lifelong readers. 15 minutes a day, makes the way for awesome READERS!

Acton Elementary Behavior Intervention Teacher
It is hard to believe but it is school time again!!! I am thrilled to have your child in my classroom this year. I have the belief that by working together we will make this a very successful school year. It is very important that you play an active role in your child’s education.
I invite you to call, email or visit with me by scheduling a conference.
Students will receive a "Take Home" folder every night. In the students “Take Home” folders, students will have an individualized communication and behavior log. This log will need to be signed by a parent/guardian each night and returned to school the following day. Graded work folders will go home weekly.
We have four basic classroom rules within our classroom. These are as follows:
Follow Directions the First Time Given Be Prepared With Supplies (Folders)
Work Quietly and Always Do Your Best
Keep Yourself and Your Objects to YOURSELF
You will be receive communication and notices in your child’s daily “Take Home” folder. "Take Home” folders are a method of communication between parent and teacher and will contain classroom information, announcements and completed student work.
Please keep in mind that in order to maximize instruction time, any birthday celebrations (i.e. cupcakes) will need at least a two day notice so that I have ample time to adjust our schedule and verify that there are no classroom allergies. You may email the date that you wish to bring a birthday treat and what that treat is. PLEASE NO SHEET CAKES. Cupcakes, individually wrapped treats or treat bags are great!
I consider it an honor and privilege to be your child’s teacher this year and look forward to meeting with each of you.
