JiJi's Grateful for…

This year has not been easy for our students, teachers, and families. They've had to persevere more than ever and adjust to distance learning. Despite these challenges, we recognize that there is still so much to be grateful for in 2020.

Here is JiJi’s gratitude list: 

  • JiJi is grateful for students and their hard work solving puzzles and completing objectives in the ST Math program. The research shows that student test scores increase with more time on the program. In other words, time spent on ST Math is time spent learning. Way to be creative, problem solvers! 
  • JiJi is also grateful for teachers and their ongoing dedication to students, families and each other. We especially want to thank our ST Math educators for their patience in getting familiar with the new version of the program and their continued willingness to give feedback that helps us make improvements to ST Math.
  • Last but not least, JiJi is grateful for parents and the more active role they have taken on this year in their child's education. We recognize your efforts and believe in your ability to be positive role models in your child’s learning journey.
