Greetings!  My name is Jocelyn Downing and I am honored to return as a teacher at Newport Heights Elementary.  I am very enthusiastic about this year.  I have been teaching for 26 years.  I received my bachelor's degree from University of Laverne.  I received my master's degree from National University.  I have been married to my wonderful husband, Chuck, for 26 years.  We have a 20-year-old on named Chaz, who attends the University of Carnegie Mellon. He is also on the tennis team.  I love reading on my iPad, going to tennis tournaments, walking my two rescue dogs and I enjoy a daily 3 mile hike in Sand Canyon Watch Park. I have also started a new hobby of growing mammoth sunflowers. I am looking forward to having a productive year of learning for my students, and I encourage parents to volunteer in the classroom.

Supply List Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten!

I am looking forward to working with your child this coming school year.  Our grade level has many exciting plans and lessons in store for the coming year.  While the district supplies us with much of our instructional materials, we are asking for you to help supply your child with a few of the necessary items.  As you do your shopping these coming weeks, here is a list of the Kindergarten grade supplies that will help make their year a success!



 2 package of glue sticks

 2 boxes of fat crayons (primary colors) or 2 boxes of 16 count Crayola crayons

 2 boxes of Crayola Markers 

 1 bottles of Windex/2 sponges

 2 containers of baby wipes (these are great for little injuries and clean up)

 One set of colored white board markers

 1 box of Ticonderga # 2 pencils

 1 box fine point dry erase markers

 2 black sharpies

 Paper plates/spoons/forks 




Thanks for your help and support!
