Lost and Found
Please check the lost and found weekly for your student’s belongings.  Over winter break, what is still in the lost and found will be donated.


Principal's Message

November is just around the corner and I am looking forward to welcoming Lauri Lewis to Jackson as my co-principal.  As we mentioned in the previous newsletter, Lauri will join us on November 17, and we will job share for the rest of the year.  I have enjoyed getting to know the amazing staff and students here at Jackson.  I look forward to seeing you at the Fall Festival.  I will be the one wearing the witch’s hat.

With warm regards,

Dr. Kathi Robinson

Congrats!

  • We are proud to have two student authors at Jackson. Helena Macalino, a 2nd grader, published her first book “The Reflection” in July. Damien Macalino, a fourth grader, published “What if an Alligator Ate an Avalanche” a little over a year ago and is now working on a graphic novel about a cow with super powers. Graphic novels are similar to comic books because they use sequential art to tell a story​. Helena and Damien’s books are available in our school library for students to check out.

  • Congratulations to Mrs. Hall and Mrs. Cutburth for receiving I Pad tablets thru DonorsChoose.org

  • Thank you to Mrs. Hall, in partnership with Ed Dennis, for their leadership in procuring donation funds from Rockwell Collins for our Project Lead the Way science program.
