    History of Red Ribbon Week

    Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country.  Red Ribbon Week serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug free lives.

    Red Ribbon Week also commemorates the ultimate sacrifice made by DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who died at the hands of drug traffickers in Mexico while fighting the battle against illegal drugs to keep our country and children safe.

    Jackson School has opportunities to particiate in Red Ribbon Week by:

    Monday, October 22nd – Hats Off to Being Drug Free! (Wear your favorite hat)

    Tuesday, October 23rd – I'm Too BRIGHT for Drugs! (Wear bright or neon colors)

    Wednesday, October 24th– Sock It to Drugs! (Wear crazy socks)

    Thursday, October 25th – My Character Counts, I'm Drug Free! Storybook Character Day or Dress for Success (Dress up as your favorite book character or inspiring career to support saying no to drugs and bullying)

    Friday, October 26th – Be a JEAN-IUS and Team Up Against Drugs! (Wear your jeans and  favorite team’s jersey or colors)

    Faculty, staff, and students say YES to a healthy heart and body and say NO to DRUGS.  Spirit Week is for the entire school.   

    Instead of a Red Ribbon Week assembly, we will be covering drug/alcohol awareness and safety in classroom guidance lessons with Mrs. Bond.

  • Community Outreach Club Issues a USC vs Clemson Collection Challenge

    The  Community Outreach Club will be sponsoring a supply and canned-food drive. Many facilities in our state, including an after-school care center, have been damaged and/or flooded and our local food bank is running low on food. We are asking that each student send in school supplies, cleaning supplies, and/or canned food items and place the items in either the Clemson or Carolina bins.

  • Nurse’s News


    As a School Nurse, I have been busy reviewing immunization certificates to ensure compliance with SC Immunization Laws. If your child has any shots during the school year please send an updated SC Certificate of Immunization to school.

    Flu season is fast approaching. Here are some facts about the flu virus:

    * Influenza or “the flu” is an illness that affects our entire body, including the lungs. As many as one in five Americans will get the flu each year. A virus that spreads from person to person causes flu.  

    * You get the flu from other people. The flu virus spreads through coughing or sneezing. It also spreads by touching something that a sick person has touched and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

    * Sometimes you can have the flu and not know it. Here are some signs that you might have the flu:

    • high fever (temperature higher than 100 degrees Fahrenheit)
    • headache
    • fatigue
    • dry cough
    • sore throat
    • runny or stuffy nose

    Children and some adults may also have:

    • upset stomach
    • vomiting.

    Remember that no medication can be sent with students to school. An adult must bring the medication in. They must have a permission form signed by the parent and physician to have medication at school. Thanks for helping us make this a happy and healthy school year!

    Feel free to contact me if you need assistance. Jennifer Reeves, RN, BSN 803-425-8965

    Thanks Again,

    Jennifer Reeves, RN, BSN, School Nurse

    Susan Workman, Health Room Assistant

  • PTO Spotlight

    Worlds Finest Chocolate is coming! Begining Monday, October 8, 2018, Jackson School PTO will be selling Worlds Finest Chocolate. The first 50 students to pick up a box of chocolate will get a free bag and have a chance to win a golden ticket worth $100 or a 5 lb chocolate bar. (One bag per person) Additionally, sell one box and you will get to attend a Magic Show. If every student sold just one box of chocolate, we wouldn't have to have anymore fundraisers for this school year! Wouldn't that be AWESOME! 

    PTO meeting scheduled for October 2, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. in the Jackson School Library.

    Don't forget to send in those Box Tops! Each one is .10 for our school!
