Read Your Way to the Big Game!
Your child’s ability to read is a critical predictor of educational and lifelong success. Help establish a strong literacy foundation for your child and support the Gamecock & Clemson championship traditions
by participating in the South Carolina Department of Education’s 2017 Read Your Way to the Big Game contest.

Once students have completed their readings, they should turn in the list of books read to their teacher . Winners will receive four tickets and pre-game sideline passes to the Clemson vs. South Carolina game. Jackson School will participate in this reading contest beginning Oct 2nd-Nov 10th.

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 23rd – Professional Development; No School for Students
Tuesday, October 24th – Real Heroes Don’t Do Drugs! (Wear your favorite superhero shirt)
Wednesday, October 25th– Sock It to Drugs! (Wear crazy socks)
Thursday, October 26th – Write the story of your life! 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 27th – Team Up Against Drugs! (Wear your 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.
On Tuesday, students will receive their red ribbon and a raffle ticket. Drawings will be done each morning of Red Ribbon Week on the morning show for a chance to win a prize.
Instead of a Red Ribbon Week assembly, we will be covering drug/alcohol awareness and safety in classroom guidance lessons with Mrs. Bond.
In the near future the school nurses will be screening vision and/or hearing for the students in grades 1st, 3rd and 5th. 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!
Every year, our school participates in the voting process to name the South Carolina Picture Book and Children's Book of the Year through the South Carolina Association of School Librarians (SCASL). The students are truly enjoying either listening to these books being read to them or reading them independently. One 3rd grade class (Ms Infinger) and 2 2nd grade (Ms Perry and Ms Jayroe) classes have already completed theeir reading lists!
Ms. Infinger's Class was the first class to finish reading all of the SCPBA Nominees for our school!
