      Jackson School has been named a Lighthouse “The Leader in Me” School by FranklinCovey, one of only 200 in the nation.  Based on The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, over 2,500 Leader in Me schools in 35 countries teach 21st century leadership and life skills to students and create cultures where every child is a leader.


    Jackson is the only Leader in Me school in the Kershaw County School District and began its program in 2012. After three years in the program, Leader in Me schools can apply for Lighthouse status, which is awarded to schools that have achieved outstanding results as proven through data analysis and a review team visit. 


    "Becoming a Leader In Me School was a decision our faculty, staff and parents committed to four years ago because we wanted to transform our school culture,” said Jackson School Principal Matia Goodwin.  “At that time, I had no idea we would see immediate results.  The amount of discipline referrals continue to decrease while test scores continue to increase.  We have created a win-win environment at our school, and I am extremely proud of our Jackson School Leaders.  We embrace our mission to LEAD, Encourage, Achieve and Dream daily."

    We have had an awesome school year where we definitely Set the Stage to LEAD!  I am one proud principal and excited about all of the accomplishments of our Jackson School Leaders.  We exceeded our math goal for the year, met our leadership goal and we are extremely close to meeting our reading goal for the year.  
    I encourage all of you to make sure you are READing with your children all summer.  Summer reading logs will be coming home in report cards.  Reading during the summer months prevents summer reading loss.  Remember readers become the future leaders of tomorrow.  
    I am wishing all of you a happy summer!  As always, thank you for supporting Jackson School where we Lead, Encourage, Achieve and Dream.
