  • Health screaning   

    Reminder From the Nurse

    In the near future the school nurses will be screening vision for the students in grades 1st, 3rd and 5th and hearing for students in 1st and 3rd grade.  Any student with abnormal results will be rescreened, and a referral will be made if needed.  Normal results will not be reported.  Please feel free to contact me by phone (425-8965) or by email (Jennifer.Reeves@kcsdschools.net) if you have concerns regarding the vision and hearing results. If you do not wish for your child to be screened you must send a written note to your child’s teacher.

    My goal is to keep our students healthy so that they can learn better!

He was able to meet with each grade level for approximately 50 minutes each. He told stories that ranged from fairy tales, folktales, ghost stories, historical stories from the Colonial and Native American times.

    Habit 4 — Think Win-Win


    Think Win-Win is the habit of mutual respect.  When we think Win-Win, we make sure everyone leaves the situation feeling like a winner. For example, if we think Win-Win with school assignments, we make sure our work is completed.  It's a win for the student because they are staying on task and it's a win for the teacher, because they know the student is putting forth their best efforts.  This situation is a win for the parents too, because they know they are producing the future leaders of tomorrow and all parents want successful, hard working students.  So, this month, think about some different ways that you can create some WIN-WIN situations.    ‚Äč

    I want to thank everyone for an excellent beginning to the 2016—2017 school year. Your children have been busy learning school expectations and all about how we are Exploring the “Leader In Me” this school year. We are excited to announce that we have google chrome books in the hands of all 1st—5th grade students. We will also have I-pads and Laptops available for Kindergarten student use. We are excited about all of the technology options we are able to offer our Jackson School Leaders. Please remind your child that this equipment is expensive and they need to take care of it and practice appropriate procedures when handling all technology. Safety is always the number one goal at Jackson School, please make sure that you send a written note to your child’s teacher if there is a change your child’s transportation. During morning arrival times, please drive through the car rider line and refrain from walking across the street unless you are bringing items inside. We want to keep everyone safe at all times.
