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!
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!

The students voted for the SCPBA in January. There were 388 votes (100%) cast for the SC Picture Book Award from Pre-K through 2nd grades. The favorite for our school was Rags: Hero Dog of WWI: A True Story by Marot Theis Raven. It received 100 votes. The 4th and 5th Graders will be voting for the SC Children’s Book Award in February. The state winners will be announced at the SCASL conference in March. We are in the process of designing the SCPBA Banner for state-level competition. A group of second grade students have been selected to help create and assemble the banner. They have chosen the book Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio. Final information will be shared in the April Newsletter.
During the week of February 27th-March 3rd, Dr. Seuss will be on the loose at Jackson School. There are many fun activities going on that promote reading literacy with children. There will be readers from the Camden Rotary Readers and Camden High School. There will also be fun daily themes for students to participate in throughout the week.
A flyer with more information will be sent home in late February.
Congratulations to Ms. Jessica Baipho, 4th Grade Teacher, who will represent Jackson School as the Reading Teacher of the Year for 20162017.
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!
