  • "Drumming Up Character"

    Steve Campbell from Dancing Drum in New Orleans will be our guest Artist in Residence on Friday, April 28.  Our students will be participating in their School Drum Day Program where every student gets to play various percussion instruments from around the world.  The title of the program is "Drumming Up Character."  This will highlight positive character traits for our students.  

    This was made possible through funds from the Distinguished Arts Program Grant that we wrote last year.drum

  • “Let Me Win, But if I Cannot Win, Let Me Be Brave in the Attempt”


    On Friday, April 21, 2017, Camden Military Academy hosted the Kershaw County Special Olympics.  Jackson School sent their athletes in grand style.  Students lined the halls as the athletes marched through on the way to the bus.  All athletes from Kershaw County participating in Special Olympics met at Chick-fil-a parking lot and had a police escort through down.  Business people lined the sidewalks and cheered the athletes on as the buses drove by.  The 4th and 5th graders from Jackson lined the sidewalk and cheered as the buses drove by. All students received  ribbons and medals for their participation in the games.  It was a great day for all  involved!

  • pennies    Beginning on April 3rd, our school will begin an exciting fundraising campaign that’s all about helping others. Pennies for Patients is a three-week program in which students collect change for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. LLS is dedicated to finding cures for blood cancers. As our students participate in this program, they’ll learn how powerful helping others can be. Learn more about the Pennies for Patients program at http://www.studentseries.org/participate/elementary-schools.
    You can start now to support your child’s participation in Pennies for Patients:

    • Start talking to your child about the value of giving back.
    • Help your child set up his or her online giving page. Be ready to share it with your friends and family once Pennies for Patients is underway. 
    • Help your child set a personal fundraising goal and talk about ways to reach it. Make a list of people your child can contact. 

    Together, we can help!
    Every 3 minutes someone in the US is diagnosed with a blood cancer, and every 9 minutes someone loses that battle. Pennies for Patients donations help families of patients pay for medicines, doctors, or other expenses and also help fund research focused on finding a cure.
    If you have questions about Pennies for Patients, contact your child’s teacher or our school program coordinator (Ms. Baipho). Or visit LLS.org. Together we are making a difference.

    Jackson Families,
    It looks like Spring is almost here.  During this time of the year, we wind down and begin preparing for end of the year assessments and celebrations.  I also think of this time of year as a time for renewal and re-focus.  I would love to hear from parents and community members about changes that we could implement for next year.  If you have comments or suggestions, please feel free to email me at matia.goodwin@kcsdschools.net.  We will also send home a parent survey this spring, so we can collect data, and make plans for improvement next year.  I hope you take some time and sharpen the saw while we have this beautiful weather.  As always, thank you for supporting Jackson School where we Lead, Encourage, Achieve and Dream!
