  • Palmetto Reading Challenge is Finished at Jackson!

    Jackson participated in the statewide reading challenge sponsored by the  SC Education Oversight Committee.  From September 16th students completed a reading log.  They were asked to read six books over a six weeks period.   The last day to turn a card in was October 25th.  There will be state-wide drawings for football tickets to the Clemson vs. Carolina football game in November. We  also had a school-wide drawing for USC and Clemson Mascot books for Pre-K through 2nd Grade and Clemson or USC T-shirts for 3rd-5th Grade from the reading logs returned to Jackson. A total of 67 reading logs were returned with USC a clear winner with a log count of 41 to 26.  Taryn Thunehorst from Ms. Ward's's Kindergarten class won the Night, Night Little Tiger, and Jayse Deas from Ms. Boykin-Garity's 1st Grade Class won  #Just a Chicken . Dyllan Urbina in Ms. Jamison's 3rd grade class won the Clemson T-Shirt and Keylie Coleman in Ms. Baipho's 5th Grade class won the USC T-Shirt. Congratulation to our winners and good luck Jackson on getting tickets to the Carolina VS Clemson Game!

  • Join the Food for the Soul Challenge

    Food for the Soul

     Join the challenge and make a difference as the elementary school students of Kershaw county "Set the Table" for the hungry and homeless in our communities.  Food for the Soul is a non-profit organization that provides a soup kitchen and homeless shelter in Kershaw County.  We would like to invite every child to become a sustainer of this vital community organization and service. "Set the Table" is a youth supported program that teaches our young people about real problems and needs that exist not only in our county but nationwide.  It is crucial that we teach our children and future generations to be proactive, empathetic, and caring.

    Please consider taking adantage of this unique opportunity that not only teaches our children, but helps the less fortunate in Kershaw County.  Chaging even one life can make a difference.  $2.00 sets the table and $5.00 sets the table and provides the meal.  Even one dollar makes a difference.  How many tables can Jackson School set? Bring all donations to your homeroom teacher by Friday, November 22nd.

  • school delay Delayed Start Wednesdays:

    Beginning August 21, 2019, KCSD will have their first delayed start for the 2019-2020 school year.

    The Kershaw County School District (KCSD) is implementing a delayed start schedule on Wednesdays to provide additional professional development time for teachers without disrupting families’ schedules.

    Bus routes, car rider lines and breakfast times will not be changed. Students can arrive at the normal start time or choose to come at the delayed start time, which will generally be 30 minutes later. Students who arrive on time will be supervised by adults and able to participate in learning activities.

    Delayed start Wednesdays allow teachers to evaluate data and collaborate on lessons on a consistent schedule.  As we develop our Professional Learning Communities, this weekly time will allow us to be more effective in improving our students’ academic achievement.

    Instruction will begin at 8:10 am and students will be tardy at 8:10 am on Delay Start Wednesdays.

  • New Box Tops for Education Information

    boxtop scan       

    Dear Families, The Box Tops for Education program is changing the way we can earn cash for our school! Over the summer, participating brands have begun to change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label. Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team has worked hard to build a NEW-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app, available now. The new app features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online. If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, make sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products. Thanks for helping our school get what it needs! BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE NEW APP OR UPDATE YOUR EXISTING APP: LEARN MORE ABOUT THESE CHANGES AT NO MORE CLIPPING SCAN YOUR RECEIPT SEE HOW AT BTFE.COM SEE THIS... CLIP IT SEE THIS...

  • Habit 4 — Think Win-Win

    4 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.
