Principal's Message

Dear Jackson Families,

We are very much looking forward to the 15-16  school year starting September 8th! Postcards with homeroom assignments will be mailed home September 1st. The PTA is hosting an ice cream social September 3rd from 6:30 to 7:30.

I want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to all the families who were able to spruce up the school the 24th.  What a wonderful example of the commitment and care you have in our school. It looks amazing; and just in time to welcome teachers next week and kids the 8th!!

Thank you also to the parents who were able to stop by for a coffee chat on the 26th. The feedback is extremely helpful to me as I begin to learn more about Jackson school and the community. As requested, I will hold monthly coffee chats for the remainder of the year with a focused topic at each.  First topic - what is our mission, vision, or purpose at Jackson?  If you have a topic you'd like included in a future chat, feel free to email or call anytime.

We have a new drop off and pick up procedure this year for increased student safety. Please see the diagram.  Jackson Parking Lot Diagram.pdf

It is a pleasure to serve the students, teachers, and community of Jackson!

We couldn't do great work without our volunteers at Jackson!  All volunteers are REQUIRED to complete a district background check, sign in, and work with teachers to determine the best time and role for your time. NO EXCEPTIONS.

To  sign up to volunteer, please visit and go to Community  and then Volunteering.  *If you are in the school for any reason, please remember to sign in and wear a badge.  We appreciate all you do for our school but safety is always a priority.  When signing in: Volunteers need to sign in on the white log as well as the computer and sign out on both too. Visitors need to sign in and out on the white log.  During any school evacuation drill or a real evacuation, please make sure to check in with the school secretary.
