  • "Putting Your Heart in It" Jackson School 

    Every year Jackson School teams up with the American Heart Association to help raise funds to support cardiovascular research and education that helps save lives in their community and across the country.  You can become a heart hero, by participating in the Jump Rope for Heart event.    This event will take place February 13th through the 17th  during the Physical Education class.  Each student is asked to raise $5.00 or more for the event. The students that raise $5.00 or more will get a chance to jump in the bounce house on the event day. Last year Jackson School raised $2,341.00 in which $350.00 were on-line donations.  Our goal this year is get more on- line donations and to raise $2,500.00 or more.  



    Thanks for “Putting your heart in it” Jackson School!

  • peanut butter

    Beginning February 1, we will introduce peanut butter cups with our fruit bowls

    district wide. (Beginning, February 1, we will introduce peanut butter cups with

    our fruit bowls in our fresh express menu.) These peanut butter cups are pre-

    packaged and sealed. We will continue to take precautions for our students who

    have peanut allergies. Students who have identified peanut allergies will be offered yogurt or cheese sticks in the

    place of the peanut butter cup with the fruit bowl meal.  If you have any questions about these changes, please contact

    Ms. Brown, Cafeteria Manager. We look forward to continuing to provide healthy and nutritious meals for your students in the new year!

  • Habit 6 Habit 6 — Synergize

    Helen Keller once said, "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much."
    When we synergize we are working together to come up with unique ideas.  Our Jackson School Leaders are taught to practice synergy in the classrooms by working with their accountability partners or working in a small group.  When we work as a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More), we can all celebrate our many successes.  Practice talking to your children at home about how you can synergize with the chores at home or while doing homework.  Continue practicing the 7 Habits at school and at home.

  • Welcome from the Principal

    Posted by Donna Myles at 1/31/2017 8:00:00 AM

    We have had an awesome 1st Semester at Jackson School, where we have been busy setting goals, having data chats and celebrating victories.   Our Jackson  LEADers have worked hard and I was so proud of all of their accomplishments and celebrations that were shared at our 2nd nine weeks awards day program.  

    We are doing our annual Leader In Me Celebration this week.  We hope our parents will be able to attend our Parent Leadership Day that will take place Wednesday, February 1.  This will be a time where our students will showcase their leadership.  

    Thank you for an excellent 1st semester!
