Dear Jackson Families,
Welcome to the 2017/2018 School year at Jackson Elementary School! Our staff is looking forward to another exciting year at Jackson!
Jackson staff provide rigorous standards based instruction for each of our students, Our staff work hard to ensure we meet the learning needs of each child at our school. At Jackson, we are committed to placing the academic and social emotional needs of our students and families foremost in our instruction and daily activities.
We continue to be a culturally rich community, passionate about helping each student achieve academic excellence. Jackson staff continues to learn and grow professionally to better serve the needs of each student and their family. Our PTA has a strong and welcoming presence that contributes to the needs of our school community.
We continue to expose our students to viable, motivating, and real world experiences to achieve success in an ever changing world. This year Jackson staff will join other educators in an innovative technology training program. We will continue providing enrichment experiences such as our after school Fiber Arts Club, Lego Robotics Teams, Lego Build Club, and our Art Docent Program. I am excited to share Jackson added Girls on the Run, a student running club, the Super Silvers Student Leadership group, and WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) to our list of extra curricular activities!
Jackson is committed to keeping our students safe. If your child expresses any concern to you regarding our school, please let their teacher or the office know. We want to make sure we are creating a safe optimal learning environment for all students.
We are a late start school. Students should arrive at 8:50AM if they eat breakfast at school. If students are not eating breakfast or participating in before school programs, they should arrive at 9:00AM when adult supervision is provided. The final bell rings at 9:15AM and all students should be in class, ready to learn and work at that time.
I continue to welcome opportunities to chat formally or informally about ways we can best serve our students. I want to work collaboratively with you to make your child's experience at Jackson successful. Please stop by and see us anytime! You will receive ongoing communication from your child’s teacher letting you know how you can work together to ensure your child’s needs are met. We look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure the success of our children!
I am excited to continue being a part of this amazing learning community!
